Volvo in Iran
« on: June 20, 2017, 10:54:21 AM »


There is many old Volvos as in this pic in Iran. There is also other Volvo hood trucks that I am unshure of. Probably trucks as the two lower pics have been sold in Europe. But the truck in the second pic? Is that an Iran only Volvo?

They look as if they are modified to be dump trucks. I never seen a Volvo VNM dump truck before. Interesting catches. I know used trucks/cars are shipped overseas to 2nd world countries where they still roam the roads.

They are built in Iran for sure. Import of used cars and trucks are very rare. And they are keeping even 50 year old trucks in good running order. In 2004 I saw how trucks were stripped down and rebuilt outdoors in Bandar Abbas.

This is a bit late but if memory serves me right I think Volvo took over the Mack factory.      Bob.
