Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor
Classic Car Record: Volvo P1800 3 Million Mile Motor
Auto mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved
classic car Volvo P1800 clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles. And
incredibly the 70-year-old's classic car Volvo P1800 - which he bought in
1966- has NEVER broken down. To date, Irvin's classic Volvo P1800 has had
857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points and spark plugs - and guzzled
120 bottles of transmission fluid. The retired school teacher bought the
classic Volvo P1800 convertible for £2,650 after a THREE-HOUR test drive
with a friend. In 2009, the classic car received a Guinness World Record
for the 'Highest Vehicle Mileage', clocking in excess of 2,721,000 miles.

MOTOR-mad Irvin Gordon is set to enter the record books when his beloved
Volvo clocks up a staggering THREE MILLION miles.
And incredibly the 70-year-old's runaround - which he bought in 1966- has
NEVER broken down.
To date, Irvin's car has had 857 oil changes, 30 drive belts, 150 points
and spark plugs - and guzzled 120 bottles of transmission fluid.
The retired school teacher bought the convertible for £2,650 after a
THREE-HOUR test drive with a friend.
Irvin, from Long Island, New York, said: "I just couldn't get out of the
car. I was having such a good time.
"I spent all Friday night, all day Saturday, all day Sunday and came back
Monday for a 1500 mile check up.
"Most people think it's crazy that I've clocked up so many miles -- but
driving is my drug of choice.
"Where other people get rid of their cars after a few years, I've never got
tired of mine.
"I used to go on driving holidays and had a 125 mile commute to work every
day -- so the miles just added up."
Over 46 years with his car Irvin has driven through the USA, UK, Sweden,
Denmark, Germany, France, Holland, Canada and Mexico.
He averages 60,000 miles a year - but can do as many as 100,000.
He said: "I'm sure I'll feel very bad once I find out how much I've spent
on maintaining the car - I spent thousands of dollars every year on
"But I like to drive -- it's my hobby.
"I choose to spend my time at the gas station filling the car up."
Divorced Irvin says one benefit of being on the road so much is he knows
American highways so well he no longer needs a map.
He said: "My friends used to think I was slightly nuts for driving as much
as I do, but now that I am getting all of this attention for my Volvo, they
are very impressed.
"I've made a lot of friends because of this car."
In nearly 50 years of ownership, his car has never broken down. However,
the car may have broken other things for Irvin.
He said: "I don't see my ex-wife or my kids. I can't say if that is because
of the driving."
Irvin will be driving his three millionth mile on his Volvo P1800 in Alaska
this autumn - then plans to continue using the car unless someone purchases
He said: "I'm entertaining the idea of selling it for a dollar a mile.
"It's just been driven by a little old school teacher on the weekends.
"It has never been in the rain, snow or any inclement weather.
"It's practically a new car!"
Volvo P1800: Classic Spy Car - XCAR
James Bond is the ultimate gentleman spy. He has to coolest toys, hottest
women and best one liners. But his taste in cars is liable to get him
killed. I mean, rocking around in an Aston is going to draw attention to
yourself isn't it? So why not try a Volvo? A Volvo P1800 to be precise...
I say this because Simon Templar, the Saint, used one. His P1800 S is one
of television's most iconic motors and, I think, one of the better spy
The Volvo P1800 is Volvo's second crack at a sports car. Its first, the
P1900 was not a rousing success. They sold (almost literally) a handful and
went off the idea of making anything sporty for a while.
The P1800 project was a labour of love and, as with all these things, had a
rocky start. Volvo couldn't make the car itself, so sought out the help of
Karmann. Karmann were initially keen but their chief client, Volkswagen,
wasn't happy about a secondary partnership with a rival. The deal was
killed and the P1800's future was in doubt.
Stiff upper lips and the famous British work ethic stepped in to save the
day -- Jensen threw its hat into the ring and won the contract. The firm
was to make 10,000 cars. It didn't. It only got through 6,000 before Volvo
politely asked them to stop. Why? Because while British engineering was top
notch, our ability to actually build cars was not. At all.
Volvo took P1800 production in house for the rest of its run, creating the
P1800 S, E and ES (an estate thingy).
Simon Templar's involvement with the car is pretty simple -- the show's
producers asked Jaguar for an E-Type and they said no. As with many things,
the second choice ended up with the better deal.
I'm not saying the E-Type was in any way forgotten, but how
stratospherically famous would it have been if it had been the Saint's
motor? Thought so...
Engine: 1.8-litre four-cylinder
Torque: 103lb ft
Top speed: 107mph

Volvo P1800S S 1968 B18 Sport Coupe Classic Youngtimer Manual Project Review For Sale
Volvo P1800S S 1968 Rare Sport Coupe Classic Youngtimer Manual Project
Review For Sale http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a really cool 68 Volvo
P1800 that is nice and clean and just needs a little work. It has the B18
which was a good powerful motor in these cars. It has a push button start
and the car cranks but can't quite get it to fire off. Losing the keys
didn't help either. The body is very clean on this car and I love the look
of these cars. The paint is in excellent condition and has a nice shine to
it and I really like this dark green colo. Even still has the factory wheel
covers that look great. This was Volvo's version of a sports car and they
did a pretty good job. The interior is cool with the red and black two
tone. The seats are red and everything else is black. Everything is in nice
condition and shows little wear. Will make someone a very nice car once you
fix it up a little bit.

It began to appear that Volvo might never produce the P1800. This motivated
Helmer Petterson to obtain financial backing from two financial firms with
the intention of buying the components directly from Volvo and marketing
the car himself. At this point Volvo had made no mention of the P1800 and
the factory would not comment. Then a press release surfaced with a photo
of the car, putting Volvo in a position where they had to acknowledge its
existence. These events influenced the company to renew its efforts: the
car was presented to the public for the first time at the Brussels Motor
Show in January 1960 and Volvo turned to Jensen Motors, whose production
lines were under-utilised, and they agreed a contract for 10,000
cars. The Linwood, Scotland, body plant of manufacturer
Pressed Steel was in turn contracted by Jensen to create the unibody shell,
which then taken by rail to be assembled at Jensen in West Bromwich,
England. In September 1960, the first production P1800 (for the 1961 model
year) left Jensen for an eager public.
Volvo 1800ES prototype by Frua
As time progressed, Jensen had problems with quality control, so the
contract was ended early at 6,000 cars. In 1963 production was moved to
Volvo's Lundby Plant in Gothenburg and the car's name was changed to 1800S
(the 'S' indicating Swedish assembly). The engine was improved with an
additional 8 hp (6 kW). In 1966 the four-cylinder engine was updated to 115
hp (86 kW). Top speed was 175 km/h (109 mph). In 1969 the B18 engine was
replaced with the 2-litre B20B variant of the B20 giving 118 bhp (89 kW),
though it kept the designation 1800S.

1966 Volvo P1800: Guinness Book of World Records car for most miles driven by one owner
In a journey that has lasted nearly half a century, spanned the globe and
elicited awe from generations of car lovers, Long Island's Irv Gordon has a
phenomenal achievement in his sight: driving 3,000,000 miles in the same
car - a shiny, red 1966 Volvo P1800. Gordon, a 73-year-old retired science
teacher from Patchogue, N.Y., holds the Guinness Book of World Records
recognition for most miles driven by a single owner in a non-commercial
vehicle, and has driven more than 2.99 million miles in his shiny red

The project was started in 1957 because Volvo wanted a sports car, despite
the fact that their previous attempt, the P1900, had been a disaster, with
only 68 cars sold. The man behind the project was an engineering consultant
to Volvo, Helmer Petterson, who in the 1940s was responsible for the Volvo
PV444. The design work was done by Helmer's son Pelle Petterson, who worked
at Pietro Frua at that time. Volvo insisted it was an Italian design by
Frua and only officially recognized that Pelle Petterson designed it in
2009. The Italian Carrozzeria Pietro Frua design firm (then a recently
acquired subsidiary of Ghia) built the first three prototypes between
September 1957 and early 1958, later designated by Volvo in September 1958
: P958-X1, P958-X2 and P958-X3, (P:Project 9:September 58:Year 1958 = P958)
