Below, Gerard explains in an e-mail to me, the photographs and the restoration. Hope you enjoy Gerard's story and the photographs as much as I did.
Gerard and Geertje will be back at Hungerford Arcade soon and we are looking forward very much to seeing them.
The Volvo P1800ES as Gerard found it
As already said when we visited you I did the whole restoration myself with exception of
spraying and interior (all the Seats have been refurbished).
Impressive Interior of the Volvo P1800ES
The 1800ES took me two and a half year to rebuild.
Picture 4 is a picture of the dashboard of the P1800ES. I have rebuilt it using very thin genuine wood and genuine leather instead of the original plastic.

Fully restored, sitting proudly outside Hungerford Arcade.
Even has its original number plate!
