After more than ten years without a six-cylinder model to offer customers, it was time in August 1968 for Volvo to unveil its 1969 model range which included a new large car for the more prestige- and luxury-oriented segments. The model was called
The two-door version in the 140-series, the Volvo 142, was introduced early in the summer of 1967 - in other words, less than a year after the 144. This 2-door model had the same technical design as the 4-door model. The doors were natural
At the end of November 1967, Volvo presented the third VARIANT in what was now developing into a complete car family known as the 140 Series: the Volvo 145. The Volvo 145 was a 5-door estate with a rear section that had a virtually vertica
In August 1966, Volvo presented a new 4-door car called the Volvo 144. It represented the start of an entirely new car series which, until 1974, accounted for Volvo's volume models. The styling of the 144 was truly timeless and this is con
This model can be described as an estate based on the 121/122S (Amazon). It made its debut at the Stockholm Motor Show in February 1962. This extension of the model range gave Volvo the most extensive programme in one and the same car family than

In September 1961, yet another version based on the 121/122S was presented - a 2-door saloon called P130. This version was an eagerly awaited model, particularly on the Swedish market, as Sweden was a typical market for 2-door cars at that time.
In 1960, Volvo presented a new sports car, just a few years after the previous attempt with the plastic-bodied Volvo Sport. The new car became known as the P1800. Later the designations were changed to P1800S, 1800S and eventually 1800E. T
The P210 was the continuation of the PV445. The model designation was changed in the autumn of 1960, when the car was given the same curved windscreen and new dashboard which had been used in the PV544 since August 1958. The production of
In August 1958, the Volvo PV544, the more modern successor to the PV444, was introduced. The changes were the most extensive since the PV444 had been presented in 1944. The body was given a larger, one-piece windscreen together and a large
When Volvo presented an open 2-seater sports car with a body made of fibreglass-reinforced polyester in 1954, it was something of a sensation. However, the car did not go into production until 1956 and, after a great many problems, production was
