The Volvo 264 was introduced in the autumn of 1974 as the successor to the Volvo 164, which was produced simultaneously with the 264 in 1975.
The 164 had been based on the 144 and, in the same way, the 264 was based on the 244. The most striking change was the design of the front with its more prestige-oriented styling.
A completely new engine, the PRV-engine, had been developed for the 264 - a V6 with a displacement of 2.7 litres, made entirely of aluminium and developed in collaboration with Peugeot and Renault.
