Volvo introduced the 140 series in 1966 as the successor to the legendary Amazon. The model number indicated the number of engine cylinders and body doors, so the 142 that entered the market in 1967 had four cylinders and two doors.
Markku Alén and Hannu Mikkola are some of the Finnish rally legends raced with Volvo 142. Alén finished third in the 1972 Jyväskylän Suurajot with a Volvo and continued to RAC rallies for the first time.
The 1973 Volvo 142 S in question was first registered in Sweden on November 6, 1972. Volvo was rebuilt as a rally car in Sweden in 2015. The car was built by Matti Tarkki and in Finland developed further by Kari Aittomaa in 2016-2018.
