VOLVO 164/164E

4-door 5-seater saloon.

Take the 144S length, lengthen the wheelbase and nose, squeeze an in-line six-cylinder into place, add a VDP Princess-style grille and - voila - the 164 model was born. 130bhp with carbs, but 160bhp with Bosch injection for '72 in the UK. Usual long list of options and 110mph plus 18mpg at first, up to 120mph with injection.
