I just bought a couple of 1800ES' and am looking for a few parts. Are there any good sources for used parts? At this point I'm only looking for small parts. Thanks.

Rockauto lists a lot of engine parts and drivetrain parts. For the less common parts, in addition to Iroll there are

CVI
https://www.cvi-automotive.se/

Genuine Classic Parts
https://global.gcp.se/

Scandcar
https://classic-volvo.com/

VP Auto
http://212.247.61.152/us/main.aspx?page=Main_FirstPage

IPD
https://www.ipdusa.com/

High Performance Auto
http://hiperformanceautoservice.com/

Skandix
http://www.skandix.de/en/

CVI, GCP, Scandcar and Skandix are all located in Europe so shipping costs may be higher. I have found that for the difficult to find parts, CVI, Scandcar and VP Auto probably have the best selection. If they don't have the part as NOS or a reproduction it likely does not exist.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm specifically looking for the rear hatch striker, with light switch and bracket. Those are missing on both cars.

Go to the GCP site. They have the parts manuals on-line and you can find the appropriate parts numbers. With the parts number you can search the web to find out whether reproductions are available.

Several sites show the part but as "discontinued." What I most likely need is a Volvo wrecking yard, shop or collector who has a few rusted out hulks out back.

Yes, that's the one. I did find the striker by following the suggestions above. (I can't remember who led to who but one guy knew another guy... :) ) Actually I found two but they may need some refurbishing. I have two cars, both missing the strikers. (My daughter's boyfriend is getting the other car.) However, when I could finally get into the spare tire compartment of the one I'm keeping, I did find the original striker, but it was bent and beat up a bit. This car took a hit in the rear and the striker was apparently damaged by either the crash or by the latch beating on it. I'm rebuilding the latch, as well. Of course, now that they are on the way, there is one on ebay auction for way cheaper—so far— then I payed for the two I ordered.

This is a great community of car lovers. I'm also beginning work on a '65 Amazon 220 and the help here has been great.
