About This 1963 Volvo 122s

Posted: 02 Nov 2007


Exclusive display of Volvo cars spanning almost 80 years of motoring

Rare Volvo cars are under the spotlight at this year’s Classic Motor Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC from 9 to 11 November. Celebrating 80 years since the first Volvo car left the Gothenburg factory in Sweden, the company marks this milestone with the help of some real motoring rarities. Representing eight different decades, some stunning Volvos, never seen before in the UK, will be on display in Hall 1 of the NEC.

Nine rare Volvos

The nine cars on display at the Volvo stand are all very rare and some of them are the only existing example. By displaying these unusual models, visitors will be introduced to some lesser known parts of the Volvo product history and older cars that are not very well known outside of Sweden. All the more reason therefore to give them pride of place at the UK’s best classic motoring exhibition.
