258 The Saint's Volvo P1800 with cast wheels

145 GBP

The Saint’s Volvo P1800 with the late edition cast spoke effect wheels. This was advertised for sale as a #201 Whizzwheels version! I guess the person selling it thought that’s what the different wheels were.

As it happens both the Whizzwheels version and this #258 with cast wheels are quite difficult to find so I was happy with whatever arrived.

It is very good condition with clean original paintwork and nice windows and jewelled lights. There is a chip both front and rear and the usual wear along those risen side strips.

The suspension, as is thankfully almost always the case on this model, excellent. I do wish they’d kept that system for other models.

The red ‘Saint’ panel on the bonnet is very new-looking and I reckon that is a replacement for the red-orange papery sort that originals were sold with. It will peel off easily, though, should you wish to remove it and the bonnet is clean and undamaged beneath.
