Not too many of these left.
This P1800 is amazingly fast (when it doesn't break). It's actually heavier than the mechanically identical 122S sedan.
Technically, it is *somewhat* British (early versions like this had bodies built by Jensen in the UK). Taken at Watkins Glen at one of our EMRA races last month:

The "stationwagon" body style is pretty slick too...Now that I think of it, the new Dodge Magnum S/W hotrod may have got some of it's good looks from the P-1800 S/W version.

Thats cool. I have always liked the P1800, ever since I saw my first 'saint' episode. There also happens to be a really nice 1800 here in town. Sadly it is painted a rather nasty yellow green colour, thats not at all flattering.

There's one for sale at www.race-cars.com (https://www.race-cars.com) at the moment. For those of you who don't already have enough ways to waste time daydreaming! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers.gif

That would explain why the seats are the same as my Spitty /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/savewave.gif
