I was searching for a
cabriolet by Volvo for years when I started thinking of building one
myself.As a P1900 was much too expensive and other Volvo models without a
roof were nearly not to be found . And thus also expensive.I started to
contact people via the Internet in order to ask them how a P1800 could be
"re-modelled". After a few disappointments, I contacted someone who told
me he had an original one. When I started asking how the job was done, he
told me after a while that he might sell his car. "An original Volvoville.
Dismantled but with all the pieces there." ( ! )
Then I started sanding it (by
hand) and finally it was repainted. I chose the Steel-Blue Metallic color.
An original color in 1970.
