Today marks the 40th anniversary of the Volvo 240 being shown to the media for the very first time, and what better way to celebrate than by showing us your favorites!

On 21 August, 1974, a few journalists were flown by chartered plane from Volvo's head office at Torslanda to the little town of Borlänge, where a row of Volvo 244 GLs were waiting for them, orange inside and out.


The next thing you know, Volvo sold around 2.8 million over the course of 19 years, making the 200 series probably the most important Volvo of all times. The final one rolled off the line at the Torslanda plant in Gothenburg on 5 May 1993.

2,862,573 units is quite a fleet, but which was your favorite? Show us below now that we got our images back!
