Saab pioneered the birth of the popular turbo car with the 99, and it became something of a cult car. It’s ruthless turbo speed was quickly duplicated by others such as Audi and many Japanese makers, but none made the formula quite as attractive as Saab.

Wilsgaard’s first project for Volvo was the Philip model, only one of which was ever manufactured in ‘finished’ condition. This, like many other experimental projects during the 50’s used a codename taken from the Swedish calendar.

This car’s main claim to fame was that it features in the TV series ‘The Saint’. The series producer originally wanted an E-Type Jaguar, but Jaguar could not supply one in the tight time scale. The new Volvo was suggested as an alternative and as Volvo could supply one immediately, the P1800 became one of the most famous cars of all time.

The significant difference between the 1953 PV445 and the 1957 version was that the front end styling had been changed and more importantly, it had been given the new B16 engine giving 66bhp. These features, plus the reputation as a sturdy, reliable and versatile vehicle continued to make this a very popular car for both private and commercial users alike.

The 123GT was a formidable rally car in its day and marked the final development of the original Amazon concept. With a design that owed much to Chrysler's 1955 C300, the model was eventually replaced by the 144 series.

Volvo’s top management calculated that the demand for a small and economical car would peak after the war. They were right. The PV444 with its integral all steel body and very economical four-cylinder engine was a success. The basic design continued production for 21 years.

Since the production closedown on the 1800 ES Estate in 1973 there was no real top of the line car until now. This Bertone built 262 coupe was identical mechanically to the 264 GL saloon of the period. It had a lowered roof line and only two doors, V-6 engine, 140 bhp and no RHD available. A total of 6,600 cars were built.

Specially ordered by Mr. Gahm, a wealthy leather merchant, this one-off is a good example of the expensive automobiles used by the Swedish jet set in the 30’s. More sophisticated than sporty, this example of pre-war style deserves a place in our range.

After the demise of the Carioca, Volvo went back to traditional styling with this TR704 limousine with an almost late 1920’s look. It was popular with the taxi owners, being extremely roomy, especially in this 7-seated lengthened version. Only 530 cars were built during 1935 - 1937.

Volvo’s first sports car made its public debut at the Brussels Motor Show in 1955. It used PV 444 mechanical components in a tubular frame with a glass fibre body shell. It had a slightly tuned B14 engine boasting 70 bhp which promised a sporty accent. Styling, being ahead of it’s time, did not catch on at all with the public and sales were low. Production was closed down in March 1957 with only 67 cars built.

The PV36 was launched in 1935. The beautiful "Carioca" had a new, bold, rounded shape and innovative technology, such as individual wheel suspension. The Carioca is still one of the real Volvo classics.

The last version of the P1800, first produced in 1960, this ES sporting estate car combined the latest of the technology with the practicality of an estate car. With a five feet loading platform at the rear and clear visibility through a tail-gate entirely of glass, this car was aimed at the US market.

Virtually the same mechanics as the saloon but with this large loading area, this model can safely be said to have started the Volvo Estate success. Exports were great and even right hand drive was available. A very good engine the B18, good road holding and the other usual Volvo features made this a much more modern car than it’s forerunner the Duett.

Thousands of small businesses really loved this sturdy and versatile estate. It had a 1.4 litre engine with 40 bhp and separate frame and could take you really any place with a full load. Duett means ‘two in one’ and thus it became - used during the week as a workhorse with great loading capacity and at weekends as a family car seating five. Volvo stopped production in 1969.

Roomier, quicker and of course more up-to-date than its ancestor, the PV444 from 1947. Much loved for its sturdiness and reliability, many were sorry to see it go in 1965 after 244,000 were built. With its 4-cylinder, 1.8 litre, 60 - 95 bhp it also proved to be a competitive rally car. Today a real cult car - the Swedish PV Club alone has 5,000 members.
