Additional Volvo 66Auto Transport Information:
Auto Transport for Volvo 66 The Volvo 66 was nothing more than a rebadged DAF 66, which was a Michelotti designed compact car made after Volvo bought DAF in 1975. This all occurred before production of the Volvo 300 series began. The 66 was famous for its continuously variable transmission, called the Variomatic. The DAF 66, on the other hand, was a small vehicle manufactured by the Dutch company DAF in the early 1970s. It supplanted the DAF 55, and like its predecessor, used a Renault 1108cc 4-cylinder water-cooled engine. Volvo is a Swedish automobile maker that was founded in 1927 in the city of Gothenburg in Sweden. The company was created as a subsidiary to the ball bearing maker SKF. It was not until 1935 when Volvo AB was released to the Swedish stock exchange that SKF sold most of its shares in the company. Volvo Cars was thus owned by AB Volvo until 1999. At that point it was acquired by the Ford Motor Company and was placed in its Premier Automotive Group. This was just another expansion of the Ford Empire.

Nevertheless, Volvo is a premium manufacturer that competes with the likes of Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Saab. They produce cars ranging from luxury SUVs, wagons, and sedans to compact sedans and coupes. In total, Volvo has 2,500 dealerships worldwide in 100 markets. Sixty percent of their sales come from Europe, 30 percent of their sales come from North America, and the other 10 percent come from the rest of the world. The Volvo brand has an unyielding reputation for safety, comfort and mechanical integrity. Humorously, the cars are sometimes compared with tractors because Volvo also makes tractors. More do though, because the cars are considered slow and heavy, but on the other hand, this is what makes them so safe.
