In the Summer of 1966, Volvo introduced the 144 as the successor to the popular 120 line. The car debuted Volvo's boxy aesthetics for the first time, a design that would stick with Volvo for decades. At the time, the 144 was considered the safest car ever built. The body featured energy absorbing crumple zones and for wheel disc brakes. Trumping its safety, was the cars overall reliability and longevity.
Fresh off the boat, GR Auto Gallery is excited to offer this extremely original, ultra clean, 1971 Volvo 144 De Luxe euro sedan.

This Volvo is powered by its 2.0 liter inline 4 cylinder engine fed by twin SU Carbs, 4 Speed manual transmission and rear wheel drive. Mechanically, this 144 is spot on.
