Volvo 145. 1967 - 1974

History of the Volvo Car

Volvo 145

At the end of November 1967, Volvo presented the third version, in what was now developing into a complete car family known as the 140 Series, the Volvo 145.

The Volvo 145 was a 5-door estate a rear section which had a virtually vertical tailgate. Options on the design differed, but everyone agreed that this was an extremely practical and spacious car. The cargo volume was more than 2 cubic metres and the floor of the cargo area totally flat.

This design of the rear section has since become a well-known characteristic of all Volvo estates.

The Volvo 145 quickly became an extremely popular estate and played an increasingly important role in the 140 Series.
