Volvo 262. 1975 - 1977

History of the Volvo Car

Volvo 262

The Volvo 262 was a very rare creation in the Volvo 260 family. It was based on the same 2-door body used for the 242, but it naturally had the typical 260 front.

A limited volume of this model was produced specifically for the US market during a period of two years.

As this version is rare, it can sometimes be confused with the Bertone-built 262C.
