History

The “Sugga,” which is Swedish for “sow,” was a radio and liaison car produced from 1953 to 1958. The Sugga was never exported and was only used by the Swedish Armed Forces, and was assembled by using many components from other cars and trucks being made in Sweden at that time. The body, for example, is from the popular 800 series taxi cab of the era, while the frame and running rear are from the Volvo heavy truck manufacturing line


Powered by a robust Flathead 6-cylinder engine, and weighing in at 6,000 lbs., the Sugga was capable of speeds up to 90 km/h and had space for two bicycles on the rear carrier so as to dispatch written messages to other Army units


Sweden remained neutral during the Cold War period, but has, since the 1940s, built and maintained a robust domestic defense industry that is suited to their unique needs. Only 702 Suggas were produced and very few have been exported outside of Scandinavia since being released from service. This example is in very original condition for the 1970s era.
