This model was only made in 1972 and 1973, and it is very rare in that a total of only 8077 were produced, with few coming to the U.S. It is a superbly-handling, powerful 2.0 Liter fuel-injected wagon that provides both practicality and sport driving experience.

The styling of this Volvo was contracted out to Frua of Italy, buy in reality, a Swede, young Pelle Pettersen, had a heavy role in its design. It is very practical, having a flip-up rear glass hatch that is held by gas pressure struts, and the rear seat folds down to provide a long, carpeted load area.
