Green With Envy: 1972 Volvo 1800ES

Do you want a car that will put a smile on the face of everybody -- get an old Volkswagen -- Beetle, Van, SomethingBack -- it doesn't matter, people really like 'em.  But they always know what they are looking at, so they'll say hi, but never ask "what is it?" If you want the "what is it" experience, you'll need to dig deep into the abyss of weird cars and get this 1972 Volvo 1800ES offered for $12000 in San Francisco, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. It seems to be sitting really low in the back as if it has a heavy load, but it's empty back there. Is this the normal stance for this car?

  2. I moved into a new house over the weekend, with my '66 220 at one end of the street, sure enough at the other end, under a car cover I spied an 1800ES. It's a small world after all.
