Perhaps not the typical Volvo P1800 owner, Neil's hankering for the model derived from a life-long exposure to Volvo cars in general – not from "The Saint" TV show, as some might suppose!
The autor Neil Murray: His father was in the Volvo Owners Club, and Neil accompanied him to many rallies, where the P1800 gradually became the focus of his attention. He has owned several 1970s-era Volvos since the early 1980s; in fact, his first Volvo, a 1973 144S, was his first car, bought before he could even drive.
Neil acquired his first P1800, a 1970 1800E, in 1988. He has owned and worked on them ever since, and now shares his first-hand experience and expertise in this book.
STOP! Don't buy a Volvo P1800 without buying this Essential buyer's Guide first!
