The 480 is probably less common than the Carina II, but I do not know we do not have much of the latter one on the site... Either they are sold under another name in other countries, or they are just so common that we never notice them in movies :D

I was debating which one to go for, and decided on the Volvo. Feel free to change it if you think the Carina would be better.

The 480ES is a rarity for sure.

Again the problem of the origin... Volvo is Swedish, but the 480 was built AND designed in Holland.

Yes, there was a 'race' of three prototypes, one British, one Swedish and one Dutch. The Dutch design (mainly bu John de Vries) won. Cf: http://www.volvo480register.nl/uk/index.html

Now I remember that "competition" thing, I already read info about that.
And indeed all 480 are "made for US" (popup lights, side lights, etc.) which is quite special as they were not sold in the US :D

They wanted to sell it to the USA at first, but finally it wasn't. And for some reasons they only made one version, taking in account the US-specs.
In Garco's link, click "The Volvo 480" on the left, then "The history".

I really don't like these disputes. Volvo is a Volvo, even if designed in Netherlands. Country of origin should be Sweden..

Mercedes ML, BMW X5 - those were designed in the US and also made there - does that make them a US car???

I thought that ML was built in USA, but not conceived there :??:

A Volvo 66 or 300-series has nothing Swedish except the name, as these were conceived as DAF models. If the Volvo 400-series models are conceived by the same "team" as these two older models, why would these be more Swedish?

But a right hand drive car cannot be "made for USA", even if it has sealed-beam headlights or sidemarkers, etc.

because the make is swedish.. I never heard af a Volvo NL before... Yes, they had/ave a plant there, yes they made/make cars there, but still under the swedish brand. It is not the case as for example VW in south america - as there they have their own models etc..
There are developing teams worldwide. Coincidently here they develop and made in the same country.

And what about the US-specs cars converted? :D
Well, this one should maybe not carry the "made for US" tag, as all were like that, it was not special to some models.

Wickey >
What about the 66 and 300? For these do you agree that they are Dutch?

Origin Holland or Sweden, but I wouldn't say made for USA, even though they were planned to be sold overthere. I'd use 'made for' only when a car has visible differences for or a different name an export market.

I agree, that they were ment to be DAFs, but still, they are Volvos :whistle:
