King of the road

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 the fact that a national and international road infrastructure was in place that enabled fast, safe and efficient truck transportation.

The 1960s was, in other words, a good decade for drivers. In Sweden, certified safety cabs were launched on the market.

Cabs were fitted with rubber suspension systems, drivers enjoyed the benefits of sitting on sprung seats, and the new high F/COE-cabs afforded superb visibility.
Now sit back comfortably and learn more about the Volvo trucks of the '60s.
