Owner's comment

Well, you learn something new everyday, for instance did you know Volvo used to build Military Vans?But after seeing the 1975 Volvo TGB11, C303 I was immediately interested. Then again anything with portal axles, an 8-speed manual and air locking differentials stock is worth looking into. The Terrängbil 11 (it’s full name translates to Terrain Vehicle) has quite the history in both military and Civillian use. From their introduction in the 60’s to still in service in the 2000’s. Not to mention a C303 even won the Dakar rally in its class in the 80’s

Facts about the model

The car was developed in the late 60s based on the successful L-3314 series and went into production in 1974. This version was produced both as a 4x4 and a 6x6. An 8x8 was planned but dropped. Engines were the B30 (B20 in the prototypes) from Volvo's civilian cars. The C3 series feature portal axles with locking differentials resulting in very high ground-clearance (similar to the Unimog) and outstanding performance offroad. The cars are narrow to make it possible to navigate between trees and on narrow forest roads.
They were also sold to civilian customers for rescue services, electricity companies etc. and private use. In the Swedish army the vehicles are designated "Terrängbil" (or "Tgb" for short)
In the 1983 Paris-Dakar rally a Volvo C303 won the class for trucks under 10 tonnes.
