The Volvo 164 is now 50 years old.

The US magazine Car and Driver tested the Volvo 164 in its July 1969 issue.  This is what they wrote.

“The Volvo people are looking to steal buyers from Buick, Oldsmobile and Mercedes showrooms, and they are doing just that. Volvo’s new customers are professional types – doctors, lawyers, dentists… people who can afford something different.”
