Heritage - Volvo PV 36 Carioca

Volvo PV36 (1935 – 1938)

Volvo PV36  (1935 – 1938)

Volvo adopted the streamlined trend of the 1930s and in 1935 introduced the PV36, popularly known as the "Carioca".

 

The car featured independent front-wheel suspension with wishbones and coil springs and a very sturdy all-steel body with rear wheel spats. The body not only looked modern, it was also very safe, as some serious accidents proved. Silent, smooth, expensive and slightly controversial, only 500 Carioca saloons were built and sold. One bare chassis was delivered on which Nordbergs built a convertible body. Top speed of the PV36 was 120 kph.
