Karl bought this car in Sweden two years ago. It was in fairly good condition but he decided to restore it anyway, so he took it over to England last year to let a professional restorer have a go. Now he is the proud owner of a car that looks great and drives like a dream.

Karl is a real 1800 enthusiast and has his own web site, the Volvo 1800 Picture Gallery, probably the best 1800 site in the world with lots of specifications, details and photos. So check out his site for more details.
