2012 Volvo 760 - Only The Fittest Survive
Volvo 760 turns 30 - The car that saved Volvo Car Corporation
In February 1982 - 30 years ago - the new Volvo 760 GLE was launched. No
typical Volvo, yet unmistakably a Volvo. Seen as elegant and exciting with
its characteristic design it was well received. The 760 became the car that
actually saved Volvo Car Corporation back then and paved the way to the
modern company of today.
When the first plans for the new car were drawn up around 1975 the
automotive industry in general was experiencing a lot of difficulties, and
Volvo in particular. The first oil crisis had just passed and at Volvo,
problems were rising regarding the build quality of the new Volvo 240. It
was also a very difficult economic time for the company. It was expensive
to build cars in the Torslanda plant, too expensive in fact, and it was no
longer profitable to export them.
The 200-series was soon to be complemented with a new generation of smaller
cars from the Dutch subsidiary Volvo Car BV, but at the same time a new
large volume-seller for the 1980s was desperately needed. A car designed
and built to meet the continuously higher demands for fuel efficiency, Exhaust emission control and safety that
kept appearing. It was just as difficult to foresee what kind of car the
customers of the 1980s would want.
A new way to tackle the task
The 760 was conceived in a time when conditions changed almost daily and in
the company there were many strong and different opinions regarding the new
car. There was no Internet to surf in order to broaden the views but Volvo
made use of the best possible tool available at the time, a very thorough
analysis of the surrounding world. Careful studies and large mental
flexibility would lead the team on to the right track and along that track
there was very little or no room for mistakes.
More car at less weight
It was decided that reliability, fuel efficiency, longevity,
serviceability, low noise levels, design and performance in that order
should guide the development work on the new project. It was also decided
that rear-wheel drive should be employed, that the wheelbase should be 10
cm (4") longer than that of the 240. The car was also to be somewhat
shorter than the 240 but have the same width and be 100 kg lighter. For
cost reasons most of the technical content was to be carried over from the
200-series with only minor modifications. This was, for instance the case
with transmissions, suspensions and many other system solutions. The
exterior design, however, had to be brand new.
The project, which was now known as the P31, was subject to changes. The
technical specifications were only finalized at about the same time as the
final design was frozen. Choosing the right design is just as difficult and
important as filling the car with the right technical content.
The introduction was initially planned for 1980 but was at this stage
postponed until 1981.
Boxiness becomes a concept
There were many design proposals to consider, many of them from outside
designers. Most of them were sedans but Volvo's head of design, Jan
Wilsgaard, was more into a hatchback. The finance department, on the other
hand, wanted a design with straight and flat surfaces, with angular lines,
preferably 90 degrees, in order to reduce the production costs as much as
In the end, the battle stood between the favourite of the marketing
department and the engineering department alternative, when the sometimes
very secretive Wilsgaard pulled an unknown contestant out of his sleeve. It
was his own proposal which blended the properties in a different way: A car
with a drawn out rear end in the estate fashion with straight body sides
and with an abruptly cut-off rear, in other words a cut-back. This cut-back
remained in the final discussions but eventually a modified version of it -
a sedan with an almost vertical rear screen and boxy rear section - was
chosen. The straight sides lent the interior a spacious feeling which was
also very comfortable. And above all, the car had real character.
It soon proved to be the right choice. In the midst of the round and
slippery soap dishes offered by other manufacturers, the Volvo boxiness was
a hit and soon turned into a hallmark. Very valuable during this selective
process was the use of so-called product clinics which Volvo used for the
first time and at which people's reactions regarding the new car were
investigated without revealing any details like the brand of car etc. The
reactions were not entirely positive, but in the USA, the planned main
market for the new car, people loved it and looked upon it as their type of

The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to
1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International
Auto Show in April 1959.
The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well
as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model
configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo
provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including
the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this
step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts.
When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives
from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler,
German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the
two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e.,
within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began
its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series.
The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in
Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began
operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models,
359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of
them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.

Volvo Premium Surround CD & Cassette Stereo System. Moonroof. Our 1997 GLT
Model makes 22 more horsepower than the previous
model, and peak torque at a low 1,800 rpm. The 850 boasts an impressive
array of standard equipment that is designed to ensure your safety: daytime
running lights, antilock brakes, traction control (TRACS), dual airbags,
side-impact airbags, fog lights, fixed head restraints and a wet weather
automatic transmission system. Steering is snappy and responsive. Braking
is so effective that it takes some getting used to and the gauges are easy
to see. The trunk includes a handy pass-through to the passenger
compartment that nicely accommodates a pair of skis. Volvo wittily terms
Our Uplevel GLT with its 2.4-liter five-cylinder, "the High Torque Low Rev
engine". EPA ratings suggest this vehicle gets 18 mpg city and 27 mpg
highway. Our Volvo 850 is a very nice car, particularly when its price tag
is compared to other European vehicles with the same features. We think
that anyone interested in safety, quality, and performance should take a
long look at the 850, especially the newly stout GLT model. Exceptional
condition. Great value! Come in and drive it today, before it gets away..
