Volvo celebrates 80th anniversary in style

Volvo is to celebrate 80 years of its vehicles at the Classic Motor Show in Birmingham this year.

The Swedish firm is marking the anniversary by displaying nine rare models including the 1953 445 Valbo convertible and 480 open top prototype from 1990.

Units have been supplied by Volvo Cars Heritage and will be on display in Hall 1 of the NEC from Friday November 9th to Sunday November 11th.

The firm stated that a number of the cars on display are the only examples of them in existence.

"By displaying these unusual models, visitors will be introduced to some lesser known parts of the Volvo product history and older cars that are not very well known outside of Sweden," the company commented.

The Swedish automaker was originally established on April 14th 1927 in Gothenburg.

It acts as a supplier of buses, trucks and construction equipment.
