Default p1800 restoration

Hey everyone, Ive just come across a 1965 p1800 in need of an engine cleaning and basic repairs. I was wondering if anyone could reccomend a manual or book aside from the owners manual to assist my restoration. Sorry if this is very short and vague - im at my sisters engagement party lol.. thank you

I will be joining vsa once the car is back on the road. As for the book... its a bit expensive, lol. Though, im sure with some sleuthing ill be able to find a pdf of it. And hiperfauto i wouldnt have even thought to look for pdfs without that post, it totally slipped my mind. Thanks guys, this will be more than sufficient. And just for kicks, a little poll: I have the original rims with volvo hubcaps. Im trying to decide those or 100 spokes.

You should also check out the Volvo 1800 Yahoo email group. 1800list@yahoogroups.com (can't remember exactly how to subscribe)

Lots of good info being traded there. Welcome to the 1800 club!
