Back in the 1950s, Volvo developed the Laplander for the Swedish army, with civilian models coming out in the 1970s. Today, they’re used by off-road adventurers and even rescue services due to their burly construction. This rare 1979 Volvo C202 Laplander 4×4 was introduced into the civilian market in 1977 and is now available for escapades off the beaten path.

The stout people-mover is powered by an 82-hp carbureted Volvo B-series inline-four mated to a 4-speed manual transmission pushing the vehicle to a top speed of 72 mph. It features a snorkel intake so you can conquer water obstacles, removable rear hardtop and doors, pintle hitch, and 16-inch steel wheels with BFGoodrich all-terrain tires. Take a look inside and find troop-style jump seats for six passengers segregated from the front with a cage divider. Showing just 32,000 miles on the odometer, this Laplander is ready for the backcountry.
