The Volvo 6-cylinder 260 series
The Volvo 264 was introduced as the successor of the 164 in the autumn of 1974. The most striking change was its more modern front design. But underneath the surface the big Volvo also received a completely new engine; the inline 6-cylinder engine was replaced by a brand new V6 with a displacement of 2.7 litres. This engine, made entirely of aluminium and developed in collaboration with Peugeot and Renault, became known as the PRV-engine. The 260 series was Volvo’s showpiece at that time and more or less had to compete with Mercedes. In comparison with Volvo’s 4-cylinder models, the 240 series, the 260 series was significantly more expensive and therefore this model is seen less frequently.
This Volvo 264 GL
The GL stands for Grand Luxe. This more luxurious trim level features a lot of extras such as tinted glass, chrome wheel eyebrows, chrome wheel trim rings, leather interior, metallic paint, a Golde sunroof, headlamp wipers and a tachometer.
This steelblue 264GL was built in 1977 in Gent, Belgium, where Volvo had an assembly plant. The car was then delivered to its first Belgian owner, who owned it for 26 years. In 2006 a Dutch Volvo fan bought the car and brought it to The Netherlands. It has been in his possession for many years. Considering the mileage of 80,000 km, this luxury sedan has been used sparingly. Thanks to its previous owners who have always taken good care of the car the Volvo is in a very good and original condition.
Are you looking for a classic car that is safe, comfortable and reliable, then you have found it. Apart from the comfortable and smooth 6-cylinder engine this sturdy Swede also offers a very spacious interior and boot, which makes it very practical. In short, a great comfortable car that is perfectly suited to be driven during all seasons of the year.
