King of The Road

In the 1960s, the truck was finally crowned transportation king. This was due in no small part to its flexibility and to the fact that a national and international road infrastructure was in place that enabled fast, safe and efficient truck transportation. In Sweden, certified safety cabs were also launched on the market.

At this time, Volvo released the Titan TIPTOP/F88/G88. The importance of these truck models to the history of Volvo Trucks cannot be overestimated. Their efficient tilt cab gave even better access to the basic components than an N truck. The crash-tested cab also offered very good sleeping and living quarters for one or two drivers. Added to all this were the new engine, transmission and chassis components.
