Volvo to Display Historic F7 Truck Near Va. Plant

Recommended Posts

Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT)  /  August 16, 2018

Volvo Trucks North America recently welcomed home the very first Volvo truck model to roll off the assembly line at its New River Valley assembly facility in Dublin, Va.

Donated by the Wilson family, founders of the former Wilson Trucking Corporation, the 1982 Volvo F7[US] model will reside at the Volvo Trucks Customer Center, adjacent to the plant.

Volvo and Wilson Trucking enjoyed a long-standing relationship beginning in the 1970s, when Wilson Trucking purchased the first Volvo F86 model sold in the U.S.

In 2011, Wilson Trucking took delivery of the 500,000th U.S.-built Volvo truck model.

That is right before that dumb ass White Motor Corporation (that couldn't take care of business) opened the door for Volvo to go nationwide.🤕
