Windows about £2.50 and the bumpers are up there somewhere too. The truck or boot lid would probably be under £1.00 Not cheap but it does make the model look right and proper.

That old paint job is laughable.

<p>Is this rest worth the costs?</p>
<p>I bought the model for 20 euro including shipping</p>
<p>Drove 200 km to go to Houten(Namac fair)and back for the spareparts.</p>
<p>Spend 18 euo on the parts.</p>
<p>Primer and paint was in stock.</p>
<p>Total spend, 20,00 for the model, 18,00 for the parts and 10,00 fuel for the trip.</p>
<p>I had fun for millions and above all a very nice modelcar.</p>
<p>So yes, it is worth the costs</p>

Well worth it, especially for the result.

Nice job

That Gold/Yellow paint job is quite distinctive on this car. the Father of a friend from high school had a secretary how drove one of these back in the late 1960's. It does have a back seat but with two 18 year olds in the back and back packs it was really cramped. I remember that the whole rear was window that opened up like a trunk. Sure saw a nice car and quick too.

That was an 1800ES I think.

<p>Thank you for Identifying the car I am talking about. That is why I have never been able to find it when looking for Volvo P1800. I did not have the ES on there. Great car and was very good on the windy BC roads back then. NO divided highways up my end of the province. It was quite the squeeze to get into the back seat too. The secretary had all her work in the back and our packs were in the back seat with my friend and me. Cramped to say the least</p>
