Class! I’d one as a kid, I got up one morning and it was wrecked. My brother told me that it was stolen by joyriders and I believed him. Later found out he’d stood on it or dropped something on it by accident😂Wow that's a number of Volvo P1800s! From what I can gather mine is one of the earlier models. While there is some hardening on the tyres, it springs well, and rolls nicely. I'll probably leave as is because I'm not too great on a fiddly resto and I'd hate to mess it up.
Another that's play worn that I haven't restored is this mk3 Cortina GXL. However, I have to take responsibility for playing with it! My dad worked for Ford and when they released the mk 3 in 1971, a number of these Graham Hill versions went to main dealers as a promotion. I got one at the tender age of 8 and played the hell out of it.

I’ve only ever seen in gold or the police one so that must be rare 😎
