History of Volvo - an interesting look at styling


Recommended Posts

Here's a little tidbit on Volvo history, the interesting thing to me is to look at the styling that company used in the 30's and 40's, and then look at the mid-50's fiberglass sports car (I'd never heard of the P1900, they only made 60 or so)...very interesting, and one can see the influence of American styling on this automaker....

The P1900 is a beautiful car, if a bit tubby, especially considering that it was an in-house design and not the fashionable Italian creation. Unfortunately it was quite expensive, fairly slow, and was of appallingly poor build quality (particularly for a Volvo!). 68 were built, 2 0f which were given the same serial number.
