1972 Volvo 1800es In Rare Color Code 109 on 2040-cars
Rockledge, Florida, United States
Greetings-and thank you for viewing this offering.
This is my last Volvo and I hate to offer it---but here it is.
Offered is my 1972 Volvo 1800ES in the rarest color offered in 1972--- and only 1972-- color code 109.
Volvo called this color Green Ocean Mist and it is my favorite color of those that were available.
Currently, there are only 6 registered in Karl Erics fine volvo1800pictures dot com website.Mine is even more unusual in that it is an A/C car w/ Automatic transmission.
For what it is worth---I have not seen a single 109 coupe or sport wagon offered on ebay in the last 5 years.
I bought this car in San Diego, California and the original blue plate and title are pictured.
Unfortunately, I have not had the time or resources to work on the car much---and that has factored in my decision to offer it.
This car is unrestored and deserves to be. My plan was to switch the auto transmission for a manual w/ overdrive conversion.
There is a bone yard in town that has the parts needed to do this and if wanted --I can provide his contact number to the buyer.
The car ran when I purchased it---and will need a weekend of fiddling to get it going again.
The issue came up of rust particulate in the gas tank that clogged the injectors.
I had the tank cleaned and repaired the sending unit.
The lines need an air hose cleaning and the injectors need to be cleaned as well.
The interior is original and the blue seats were added to match a surfboard I have. Both sets of seats are included.
Also included is a spare drivers mirror, fan shroud, spare tire, tachometer,and some various small items.
It would be nice to replace the interior to match the outside appearance and perhaps a color change to Black or white might be a possibility.
I suppose dying the interior black might work.........
The engine bay is all original.
Also included is additional paint to re-paint the engine bay.
The paint on the car is nice but not heroic or show quality. My impression is the car was kept running over the years---but has not been restored.
My asking price represents a significant financial loss--- however it is a nice opportunity for someone that has the time and resources.
The car is being offered as a project car needing time and resources to either get to driver status or if desired a foundation for a proper full restoration.
As such the car is offered in as is / found condition.
If you take this to a Volvo show---you will be the only one there with this rare color.
I am at 1-321-749-7257 for any questions, discussions ,or enlightenment.
Thank you !

Sometimes it takes smaller automakers a bit longer than the industry average to rotate and freshen their product lineups. Volvo has taken a big swing for the 2014 model year in that regard, and has brought along a full product portfolio of new cars.

In the main, this means that the Swedish brand has fast-tracked facelifts for its already-attractive assemblage of sedans, wagons and crossovers. Volvo mainstays S60 and S80 have both gotten appearance modifications to freshen them for dealer lots, as well as added features inside the car. We're particularly happy to report that the spirited "60 cluster" models - S60, V60, XC60 - can now be had with optional paddle shifters on new, three-spoke steering wheels.
Below you'll find a whole bunch of image galleries of the revised Volvos, live and in person from the show floor in Geneva. For a bit more background on the Volvo updates, feel free to read our original announcement of the news or scroll down to catch the press release.
You know what we haven't posted in a long time? A very weird, car-related video. It's high time we address this failing.

As strange videos go, this one is truly bizarre. The two-minute clip focuses on the Volvo V60 R-Design, although you're not going to be learning anything about the car. Instead, you're going to be focused on the weird narrator (and the cat decals on the windows).
It's like someone taught the Swedish Chef to speak English, but with a ridiculous accent and a script that's been fed through Google Translate. The result is a weirdly cerebral voice speaking in a manner that borders on gibberish mixed with information about the car. We're particularly fond of, "In accordance with Volvo tradition... the car... is... of course... furnished, with an inside." "Floor bibs," in reference to the floor mats, was an office favorite, as well.
When Volvo took the wraps off its Concept Coupe yesterday, the Swedish automaker said that while "the all-new XC90 is an entirely different type of car, you will recognize the connection instantly when it is revealed next year." We raised our eyebrows at this upon first read, but after seeing these photos, posted on Feber.se, Volvo certainly wasn't joking.
During a press conference where the Concept Coupe debuted, teaser images of the next XC90 were shown, and the connection between it and the conceptual two-door are obvious. The long, T-shaped lighting elements in the slim headlamps are certainly the most noticeable tie between the two vehicles, but the angular lower fascia openings seen here can also be found quite prominently on the Concept Coupe.
Feber.se also has a few images showing the new taillamp and interior designs of the XC90, as well. And not surprisingly, those two facets of the new crossover's DNA are also surprisingly close to the elements found on the Concept Coupe. It's interesting to see how the concept's C-shaped taillamps have been massaged for the more upright design of the XC90's rump, and inside the cabin, it appears Volvo is serious about this vertically oriented infotainment display.
