S-codes

The S-code is used to identify what equipment level a unit had upon delivery. Such equipment could be standard on one market, but extra option on others.

Volvo state that they don’t have information about S-codes for 1800 in their computer systems, and we have therefore to rely on the spare parts book and information from owners of 1800S, E and ES to decode the numbers. The list below is therefore not at all complete and in some cases only assumptions based on photos in the 1800 register.
