Description for Volvo C30 1975

Volvo C303 1975. 4x4 with PTO/Hydraulics. Mothballed in dry MOD storage for may years with regular (fit for service checks) Fortunate to be the recipient of possibly the lowest mileage original example in the world today. Starts on the button and everything works perfectly as new, as it should. Spare wheel and some parts. I have posted photographs of it from a week ago. It has a few body rust holes which i have shown in photographs. New horn ordered. Underneath is perfect as you would expect. I have decided to offer it for sale at 25,000 GBP. No offers will be excepted, because i know how unique this is. If i do not sell, i will bring it back to MINT and keep it for myself. Those of you who know this vehicle will know how special this vehicle is.

The Truck was developed in the late 60s based on the successful L-3314 series and went into production in 1974. This version was produced both as a 4x4 and a 6x6. An 8x8 was planned but dropped. Engines were the B30 (B20 in the prototypes) from Volvo's civilian cars. The C3 series feature portal axles with locking differentials resulting in very high ground-clearance (similar to the Unimog) and outstanding performance offroad. The cars are narrow to make it possible to navigate between trees and on narrow forest roads.

They were also sold to civilian customers for rescue services, electricity companies etc. and private use. In the Swedish army the vehicles are designated "Terrängbil xx" (or "Tgb" for short) where "xx" is a number defining the type of vehicle. See table below.

In the 1983 Paris-Dakar rally a Volvo C303 won the class for trucks under 10 tonnes.[1]

8718 vehicles of the C3 series were made. Roughly 75% of these went into military service, with the remaining sold to civilian contracts. It was used by the Malaysian Army c. 1970-1990, the Royal Malaysian Police, and civilian users like Telekom Malaysia c. 1980s.
