Brief History

Since her acquisition, and due to the owner’s long-term work commitments overseas with the World Bank and United Nations, she was only used for short runs around the Surrey countryside on dry days before being loaned to the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum in Halland, E Sussex, where she was exhibited from April 1982 to August 2004. 

On returning from abroad, and having built an 8 to 10 car garage at his home, she was brought back from the Museum on a trailer where she has been nurtured in the good company of the owner’s collection of vintage and classic cars. A thorough and comprehensive programme of renovation was then undertaken, using genuine Volvo parts, to attain her present unique pristine and showroom condition.  (Some £12,500 was spent on parts alone, not including labour).

Since then she has been sought by Volvo to feature in promotional material for their new range of vehicles.
