Current collection of Volvo classics

By now I have owned quite a few Volvo vintage cars. Several I have also gotten rid of in order to downsize my collection of old Volvos. Dit is mijn huidige collectie:

Volvo1800E e1414750327581

Volvo 1800E

Type: 1800E
Year built: 1972
Engine: B20E (injection)
Color: now red (46), original light blue metallic (111)
Interior: now none, original black leather with blue carpeting.

I own this car since September 5, 2003. I bought it from Nordicar. The car comes from America, but after a few years in the Netherlands now needs attention to the sheet metal. Including the paravane and sill on the right.

So there has to be an interior in it, I have now found that. There is also welding on the body. Also a future project.

Type: P130
Year built: 1967
Engine: now B20A
Color: red (46)
Interior: black leather from a Volvo 164

OldVolvo is a classic Volvo hobby blog by Lars Rengersen.

Also electric?

Do you also want to convert your car (Volvo or another brand) to full electric? As a spin-off of my own EV conversion project I started EVcreate for 'enabling EV conversions'
