Tracing the History of the Volvo Luxury Sedan: The 164

Volvo's flagship luxury sedan, the S80, has been around for almost 15 years but its history stretches far beyond that. Introduced nearly 45 years ago, the 1969 Volvo 164 was the first of a long line of large Volvo luxury sedans.
It featured a big six cylinder engine, a leather interior, and plenty of room...much like today's S80. The Volvo 164 was advertised as a smart luxury alternative to many pricy European sedans (hmmm...again, much like the Volvo S80) and helped to establish Volvo as a maker of high-quality products known for safety and comfort. Produced until 1975, the Volvo 164 paved the way for the 264,760, 960, S90 and ultimately the S80.
