The Volvo 140 Series is a line of mid-size cars manufactured and marketed by Volvo from 1966 to 1974 in two- and four-door sedan (models 142 and 144 respectively) as well as five door station wagon (model 145) body styles—with numerous intermediate facelifts. More than a million Volvo 140s were built.

Volvo Cars began manufacturing the Volvo 144 at Torslandaverken in the late summer of 1966 for the 1967 model year.

This model was the first on the market to introduce a rear-facing child seat, which, needless to say, defines an entire era to this day. A version of the B20E arrived in 1971, which also featured leather seats and a sunroof. During its production, the 140 received three different front grilles.

The 140 series was colloquially referred to as “tanks” because they had a very high safety standard, years ahead of other brands and models. This model is designed to withstand Scandinavian winters and ensure the safest possible driving for the driver and passengers.

he engines used in this model are robust and have a very long service life, as it was not uncommon for them to withstand 250-300,000 kilometers without much service.

The model found a niche in the market, as several other brands later produced Express versions of the 245. A total of 412,986 2-door sedan, 523,808 4-door sedans and 268,317 5-door station wagons were produced. The Type 140 is considered by many to be one of the best cars Volvo has ever built.
