TOPIC: PV ad on website I can't find

PV ad on website I can't find 3 years 4 days ago #167

I'm considering adding a PV to my current collection of one Volvo. Some time ago I came across a website which originally was a Volvo ad describing how back in the late 50s or early 60s an American couple went to Sweden to purchase a PV. The ad describes how a PV is constructed starting with the native Swedish iron ore & how much better it is compared to U.S. cars of the same period. It's really very interesting, detailed & convincing. Has anyone else seen this website? I can't find it. Would really like to see it again. Thanks.

Volvo has a great historical site with many old print and video ads. You might want to look there.

I want to die like my Grandfather did, peacefully in his sleep.
Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

English. Wish I could tell you more. It wasn't a video; just a series of pics showing how the car started to be built with raw iron up to final assembly all in Sweden & how Volvo made practically everything, including transmissions, by Volvo-owned Kopek (spelling?).
