While Volvo continues to develop its sexy image, the enthusiast fan-base for the classic models remains strong albeit with little written about the marque. A mix of lively text and photography, this book gives an overview of Volvo's history from its formation in 1927 through to the present, describing the cars in detail and giving technical information, buying tips and personal impressions of individual models.
The book covers: safety and the early adoption of environmentalism to sell cars; pre-war Volvos, different models and the specialist 800-series; the PV444, PV445, Duett and PV544, specials such as the drop-head PV444, and prototypes Philip, Elizabeth and Margaret; the Amazon series, P1800, P1900 and 1800ES plus derivatives; the Rocket and Viking concepts; the 140 and 164 story, Zagato 3000GTZ concept and P172 coupe prototype; the 240 and 260-series, DAF acquisition and 300 series; concept cars, from the Venus Bilo of 1933 to the Volvo experimental taxi; the 700, 900 and 400-series, Renault and Mitsubishi partnerships and Volvo under Ford ownership.
