volvo 300 series

Volvo 300 Series comprised of a hatchback and conventional saloon marked between 1976 and 1991. The series was launched in the Netherlands when Volvo bought major shares in the DAF’s passenger car division in 1973. The Volvo 340 and the Volvo 360 were the vehicles manufactured in the series.  The series was singled out due to its rear axle mounted gearbox, the de Dion tube type, and the 2.0 Liter had the drive shaft encompassed by a torque tube. Though the gearbox helped in the distribution of weight it created an atypically large transmission tunnel compared to the competitors like Mk III Ford Escort. In the overall context the 300 was heavier and non-economical for driving, but was a safer option over the standards of today. With the unusual gearbox offering better weight distribution it offered good balance and better traction for enthusiastic drivers. Between 1976 and 1991 Volvo has produced 1, 139, 689 units of the 300 series.
