I collect brochures, data sheets, and other paraphernalia for the Volvo 1800S, a car I used to own in England and that one day I'm going to own again. Occasionally, I'll post here some images of my collection (see here for an older post showing off a 4 page brochure).
This arrived today, a one-page data sheet. The date on the back indicates that it was published October 1968. It's got a picture of a white Volvo 1800S on the front and the technical info on the back. A little yellowed at the top, but in nice nick nevertheless. (Click on the image for a full PDF.)
Unfortunately the original preparation and printing weren't very good: the picture is obviously cut from another photo (taken in bright sunlight) to put it against the black background, and at magnification it shows. Some of the data on the back had been changed (the fonts are slightly different) before printing.
With these data sheets, it's fun to read the technical data to see what they thought was important to mention in those days. Engine displacement in cu.in. (109 cu.in. is the same as 1800 cc, hence the name of the car). There's no mention of fuel economy or of top speed or of acceleration (the latter two these days are de rigueur pieces of info for sports cars). And I'm so glad that the three-point safety belts are standard equipment.
