The Volvo 300 Series was launched in
the Netherlands shortly after Volvo acquired a
major stake in the passenger car division of DAF in 1973.
The series consisted of the Volvo 340 (initially badged as the
343/345) and the later Volvo 360. It was fitted with a 1. 4 litre
Renault engine in the front and DAF's
radical Variomatic continuously variable transmission
unusually mounted in the rear. helping weight distribution.
The third digit designating the number of doors was dropped
from model designations in 1983. Like other Volvos. the 340
embodied many ground-breaking safety features which have since
become standard on most cars. Sales began at a low level but
gradually increased as the line-up expanded with 1983 marking the
first year that 300-series production broke the 100. 00 barrier.
They are robust and mechanically simple (and therefore easy to
maintain). Even the unpopular Variomatic transmissions are reliable
given proper care with the engines quite durable. The Volvo 300 has
experienced something of a renaissance in recent years with a
number of very active websites across Europe. A strong. young
following has developed attracted by a rear wheel drive car which
is very cheap to buy. insure and relatively easy to work on.

Presented in silver with a contrasting blue cloth interior. this
one owner car was registered on 1st May 1979 and used
for just one year before being parked up and left. The recorded
mileage is thought to be correct at 4. 96 and this time-warp
example will require some re-commissioning before use.
