What year?
This is army surplus car from Swedish army. It is also known as Volvo C304. Construction year is 1977. They were produced 1974-1984 . I bought it in 2004 directly from army . It had just 10 000 miles then. Originally all Volvo TGB-s have petrol engines. I changed to diesel, installed tanks, winches etc. I drived 2 expeditions to Polar Ural mountains in 2005 and 2006. About 5000 miles each. After that i have drived just some short weekend trips locally. Volvo TGB is most capable off-road car in the world. Since 2008 i have smaller Volvo TGB / C304 expedition vechicle. I do not use this one.
