The reason behind the P1800 fame, why is it such a resilient car!

We all are aware that the fame of resilience of the P1800 has been demonstrated by our friend Irv Gordon for 5 decades with the highest mileage in the world for a personal car.

This is due to several factors:

  •     High class engineering with top materials thought for the long term
  •     A design for easy maintenance

Part of the success is the incredible reliability and strength of the volvo B18 engine, this video seems a good presentation of the story behind it, from B16 to the perf  B21!  

Our under-stressed motors will surely guarantee that all the Volvo P1800 will outlive their owners!
