Volvo introduced the LV71-series in the spring of 1932. The truck was built on two different wheelbases: 3.4 and 4.1 m. There were two weight classes: LV71 and LV72 with a payload of 2.5 tonnes and LV73 and LV74 with a payload of 3 tonnes.
The medium sized truck series also included Volvo’s first forward control truck, LV75. The cab was moved forward so that the driver sat beside the engine instead of the gear box like a conventional truck. This gives a better weight distribution between the front and rear axle, resulting in reduced rear axle load.
