Taking you up on your offer George. Any information on the history of the 140's is appreciated. We're really looking forward to getting the most enjoyment from our 72 142S.<p>Dale

Hi,

In the Netherlands there are many volvo enthusiasts, many oldtimers are still used everyday. There is an intersting forum at www.volvolvo.nl , they have an english corner.


Best regards,

Mathieu.

Hi All!

Could you help me a bit?
I need some official or quite authentic specifications of the Volvo 144. The things I need are basic specs:
- performance /hp in DIN/
- top speed
- fuel consumption

I would appreciate the answers!
Thank you in advance!

Hi seglare

We need more info ie carbs SU or Strombergs? Car is auto or 4speed? These make quite a difference. SU's & 4 speed manual gave 117 HP & 120 mph & 39-40 mpg
from experience. A '68 122s 1800cc same set up gave 112 HP & 115 MPH & 40-41 mpg even at steady 80mph!
