Our man on the street in Portland spotted this beautiful Volvo P1800 parked in front of a loading dock in the Pearl District. The classic lines and taught profile look good enough to be displayed in one of the many high end galleries strewn about the neighborhood. For those of you too young to remember, Roger Moore drove a white one of these in the popular 1960s TV series The Saint (Val Kilmer drove a C70 in the 1997 movie). We also like the P1800ES that came out in ‘72 because of the all glass rear tailgate – it was one of the major inspirations when stylists penned the current Volvo C30. I can’t decide which I would rather own, this or a Karmann Ghia.
Thanks for the great photos Emir
