Many Professional drivers consider the Volvo GT a first-rate performance sedan. For good reasons. Its performance-tuned fuel-injected overhead-cam engine. Suspension and handling systems with gas-filled McPherson struts and extra heavy-duty anti-roll bars, front and rear. Plus high-performance Pirelli P6 radials and power assisted disc breaks on all four wheels.
But when you test drive the Volvo GT, other important things also become apparent. Like comfort, safty and quality workmanship throughout. Which makes our bottom line-price-the most competitive feature of the Volvo GT.
And that's why you should stop in at a Volvo showroom today. Because when you buy a Volvo GT, you wont feel like you got beat - coming or going.

My dad gave that to me- from a June 1980 Playboy :)

Those are some cool ads. I have to agree that Volvo has one of the most creative ad campaigns. I have a bunch of ads from the late 60's, but they are too big to fit in my scanner.

Wow volvo had some really creative advertising back in the 80s. Its interesting to note at that time that Volvo outsold BMW and Mercedes combined. Today both of those brands outsell Volvo in the US. Maybe Volvo should return to some of its core customers rather than try to imitate the success of those German brands with an outmoded FWD platform. Don't get me wrong, I love the design of Volvo's best selling car ever, the S60 but just imagine how well it would sell if it was RWD. Where is the modern day equivalent of the 240DL or the 740 wagon? Unfortunately today the cheap Volvo is also very very small. In the 80s Volvo offered the best bang for the buck when it came to a large european sedan or wagon.

i showed this to my brother last night, and he pointed out something pretty interesting to me. volvo is one of the few car companies out there if not the only one, who tries to not make you buy a new one of their cars every year and a half or so. basically put they're trying to slow business at the same time trying to sell the car to those who don't have one, but tell the current owners to not get rid of the car in a year.

when i get them, i have 2 really cool old volvo ad's, from the 60's, they are in Life. the coolest of the 2 that puts all these to shame is one where they took a 144 and cut it in half all the way down the middle, and it shows you how much of the car they've painted and how much they care about the paint preping and the paint process. have you ever noticed it, that they even paint the INSIDE of the rear differential on the 140's and 240's that i know.

no that was someone that pshopped the the image bc they modded theirs and thats how fast it went i guess.

04-01-2006, 08:58 PM
yea because 850r's 0-60 time was 6.9, unlikely that 240 turbo is faster.

I've seen the actual ad before so I'm guessing someone got the 240 to do it, probably had a turbo+ kit or something to do it. But if they advertised it they must have done it.

Could be like the AC Cobra with the reported 1/4 mile time that no one has managed to reproduce.

That and the car industry used to routenely lie/exagerate about HP, not sure how accurate they are now.

You should know better than to think its photoshopped.

0 to the legal limit........ at the time, not 65, 75, the NATIONAL speedlimit was 55mph. 5mph could be another .5 secs....... easy way to explain the low number.

No, its not photoshopped, read the add, I've seen the add plenty of times, not on this forum.


On a side note, how many people have found 240 turbos that have been retrofitted with intercoolers?????????

"It can actually make 55 M.P.H. interesting." - black 244 Turbo

"Fall in love in 6.8 seconds flat." - black 240 Turbo - This is NOT Photoshopped. Its an update of an earlier ad done when the intercooler was added. Review of an 84 Camero is on the back. :lol:

"The Volvo Turbo as most commonly view from a BMW 318i." - back of a black 240 Turbo

"The world's fastest baggage handler?" - back/side view of black 245 Turbo

My favorite is a TV commercial from the late '60s or early '70s.

it's a dark and stormy night. Scrawny kid, definitely not conservatively dressed, pulls up the drive to a very upscale home driving a jalopy. A rolling near-wreck. Enters the beautiful home to pick up his date.

The girl's very upscale, conservative father meets him at the door. Pretty and young girl is visible near at the bottom of the stairs, behind Dad. Dad takes a look at the kid and at his car out in the drive, reaches into his pocket, pulls out his keys and hands them to the kid.

"Here, take my Volvo."

As in, "NO WAY are you taking the pride of my life out in that storm without a Volvo wrapped around her."

I believe that was/is an IPD/other company grill kit that makes it like that, addition to the stock grill. Got mixed but generally disagreeable opinions last I saw one on a forum.

quite simple really, its not a real volvo ad, its a clip from a music video and the 740 got a broken grill...
