The Volvo 140 series was launched in the summer of 1966. The Volvo 144 was available in the Netherlands from February 1967. At the end of 1967 the 140 series was extended with the Volvo 142 (2 door saloon) and Volvo 145 (5 door estate). Two types of engines were available: the B18A (1780 cc, 85 SAE hp) and the B18B (1780 cc, 115 SAE hp). Three types of gearboxes: M40 (4 shift manual), M41 (4 shift manual + overdrive) and the BW35 (Borg and Warner automatic).

Starting with the 1969 series, the bore of the engine was increased, and it became the B20 (1986 cc). The B20 was also available in two types: the B20A (90 SAE hp) and the B20B (118 SAE hp). In the 1971 series the fuel injected B20E (135 SAE hp) was introduced. For more details about the 140 series see elsewhere on this website.

My car is a 142 with B20A engine and an automatic BW35 gearbox. It is an original Dutch car sold to the first owner, living in Haarlem (near Amsterdam) in February 1970. Iím the fourth owner. The former owner has completely restored the car in 1997/1998 (see photos), including the engine.
