Suited for small service missions
Mechanically, the LV76-78 series was quite simple and rugged. No serious problems were experienced by owners and drivers, probably due more to simplicity than to sophisticated design.
The main use of these trucks was in light-duty distribution (a common use for these trucks was as a multi-purpose vehicle at market gardens) and as a service vehicle for fire brigades in smaller communities. In 1936, a slightly more powerful version, the LV79, was introduced, with heavier chassis components and double-mounted rear wheels. This truck was suited not only for distribution transport, but also for heavier use such as in buses and even for light construction use.
The LV76-78 was superseded by the LV10, while the LV79 was superseded by the LV11, both types having (like their predecessors) similar bonnet design to the concurrently produced large Volvo (taxi) cars.
