4-door saloon.

Built like a tank and about as exciting, with a massive seven-bearing 145bhp pushrod 'six' and the usual Volvo chassis engineering. Power disc brakes all round as on 140s, a live axle and coils at the back, and 110mph on tap. Lots of options - automatic, limited-slip diff, overdrive, power steering, sun roof - though no wagons. Leather upholstery for 1970, pas for 1971, 175bhp injected engine for 1972. As with 144, ungainly big bumpers from '73 model year. Production continues until 1975.
