Volvo Wagon Meet in Sweden

Ragge Fransson was a relentless Volvo wagon and 123GT enthusiasts.

Story time…He was also a true gentleman: I had just connected with him about Volvos so he barely knew me. I was bidding from US on a rare Volvo part on a Swedish auction site. Turns out he was bidding as well. When he saw that I was the bidder he backed off and let me have the part. I did not know until later.

Unfortunately he left us last year…way too early. RIP Ragge!

Ragge sent us these pictures a few years ago from a wagon meet in Sweden.

Magnus Johansson from Karlshamn, Sweden sent us this picture of his car and trailer.  The car is a 1965 Volvo PV 544 Sport. The car is un-restored and is even sporting the original paint. The trailer is an Opio also from 1965.

Welcome to Vintage Swedish Cars

1967 Volvo Combi

Here we will babble randomly about those fine Swedish cars made from the original Volvo Jacob to cool 240’s and 700 series cars. ┬áThe emphasis will be on cars from the 60’s as we find the Volvo 120 series Amazons and the Volvo PV 444-544 cars the ultimate in Swedish Coolness.

Stand by for Swedish stuff.
