Volvo PV4. 1927 - 1929
History of the Volvo Car
Volvo's first saloon appeared in the summer of 1927 and the body was modified the following year. The bodywork of the PV4 was based on the Weymann principle, with an insulated wooden frame covered with fabric instead of steel. The seats could be transformed into a comfortable bed for two persons.
