Volvo LV45 with a bus body built on. This buss started it's life December 1928 in Värmland county Sweden. In late 1980 th, or earlier, from it's lonely restrhe car went through a complete restortion. It's debut became veteran car rally London - Brighton 1993. Here the bus won it's class for commercial vehicles. The bus weigh 3 ton and had place for 16 passengers. The fact that the engine only had 28 ps the rear end must have got a reduction. The wooden body was produced by Arvika body factory

Future studies of cars and vehicles always end up at museums. Volvo LCP 2000 from 1983 was build to get low weight and minor fuel consumption. It had a 3 cyl. !! diesel engine with fuel injection, turbo ? and was cooled by an oil system. Power was 66 ps. It could be driven on different types of fuel and powered on the front wheels. It was possibly to drive 180 km/h. Wonder if it is possible to be proved. The body is mainly built by aluminum, magnesium and plastic. This copy is number 4 in the LCP series.

Volvo produced 1995 a new future study for buses. May be it was observed that the former one 1993 was too weak. It had to be driven over the Alps. Now the power was a turbine and much of the new security thinking of that time, like side smash protection and others was built in. The power was now an engine in the rear.

For busses in order to make room for a more flat floor, 1979 a new engine placement was developed. The engine was placed between the frame members. This was good and practical because this area was not used at this time. But how bad for service. Later the need for luggage was noted so this idea had to stand back during the 80-th. Service was done that the whole engine unit was dismantled. See the following pictures.

This buss chassis was named B10M and was the fourth development for busses. It's forerunner was B58 from 1966. The picture shows mainly the engine placement. This construction was also used for front overhead driving position lorries.

The gearbox is shown here.

The demands are different for new developments. The ide'a with this engine placement was good for it's time. 1980 1603 chassis were built ant totally up to 2000 51492 B10M were sold globally. It was specially successful in Brazil.

In the museum there is also a section for passenger car engines. Most of them were modern constructions. The shown is a B28 from 1980. It replaced the B30 engine. That was an in line 6 cyl. This shown type was rebuilt as a V6 and called PRV. It stands for Peugeot, Renault, Volvo. In this time the fusion between Volvo and Renault was highly actual. There was also some sort of cooperation with Citroen and Maserati. This was to get knowledge for the V6 construction. This engine became complicated with it's valve arrangement and was only used a few years. Later type 960 again got an in line 6.

This construction of the rear end seems to be a very good unit. The 960 type could be equipped with it. This was a very modern development and easy to mount. It was equipped with springs and rear power system. Sorry to say it might have been to expensive and disappeared silently. This unit could have been popular among HotRod builders, but it was not common on the market. They used Jaguar instead.

Here you will see 4 pictures from different engines. The shown picture is equipped with an automatic gear box working on electric basis and without the normal turbine. This type of gearbox has 2012 again been popular in order to spare fuel. It has though the disadvantage for very slow gearing and all who have tried to drive backwards are desperate. Even if the stop and start function is off.

The camshaft system driven by a timing belt. There is high cost on cars today to change this belt. Sometime there is 3 of them. May be a new and cheaper construction will show up. Anyway this sort of timing belts are silent running.

A turbine motor was constructed and placed in front as a front engine. A turbine has the advantage to give higher effect for a small unit, but disadvantages are high fuel consumption and "slow" answer when changing throttle.

During my travel around Sweden in order to find old cars, this was shown in County of Hälsingland. The lorry chassis was from 1932 and for that reason equipped with a 6 cyl. engine. On this a body for use as a bus was built. The following pictures show more. Besides a so called EPA tractor is standing. This was the way for farmers to get a working vehicle at that time. See next picture.

In Hälsingland there were heavy winters during 1920 and may be also 2012. Here Volvo lorries ready for clearing the "roads" from snow. Normally buses had snowploughs mounted when driving during the winter. On the picture you can see the Rengsjö manor in the rear. Here the Rengsjö and SAF car investor lived as long as there were money left.

On a place outside a store I found this bus. It had been parked there for a long time and hard to see any value in. It was also difficult to see what year and type of buss.

A look under the cover unveiled this.

Only very high specialists can see the value and understand how much time it can take to get it in order.

At my visit in Åtvidaberg and ÅSSA-museum I saw this volvo from 1932. It was in extremly good order. Åtvidaberg and Volvo had cooperation once.
