"Volvo expertly restored the car to exhibition condition between 2010 and 2014."


Börje Thor, a Volvo development manager and test driver, purchased the car in 2009. It had only traveled 167,000 kilometers at the time.
It was previously in good condition. Both inside and out, the car appears to be in near-new condition. During the renovation, the speedometer was reset to zero, and it has only traveled 4800 kilometers since then.

The car has always had an automatic transmission, as well as extra lights, A/C, and overdrive. It is currently mounted on ATS wheels, but original wheels with chrome rings are included.

The Volvo 144GL - Grand Luxe was the finest 140 model, trailing only the 164 in terms of equipment. Today, this is one of the most sought-after Volvo models from the era, and it is likely the best example you can buy?

Facts about the model

Vad som gör just 144GL så speciell är för att den är sällsynt här. Den togs fram främst för USA-marknaden där man hade högre krav på utrustning och komfort - med Grand Luxepaketet fick man det.
Skinnklädsel, A/C, automatlåda och insprutningsmotor - B20E på 124 hästkrafter.

Därför fick de flesta av dom resa till Amerika och de som stannade kvar hemma är idag mycket eftertraktade. Grand Luxe fanns som både två och fyrdörrarsmodell mellan åren 1971 och 1974.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
