Swede Seige: 1962 Volvo Laplander L3314A

In the world of used military vehicles, many are cheap (at least per pound) but few are actually usable in a typical urban environment. That M35 deuce and a half certainly looks mean, but it’ll burn through fuel like the space shuttle and forget trying to park it on the street in front of your neighbor’s house. This next little jewel is a Laplander from the Swedish army collection and is small enough to park in your garage, but rugged enough to park in your neighbor’s back yard…after driving through some bushes, a creek, and maybe their fence. You have insurance…right? Find this 1962 Volvo Laplander L3314A offered for $9,850 in Apopka, FL via eBay.

From the seller:


The Volvo Laplander L3314 is a range of military vehicles produced by Volvo.
In the early 1950s Volvo received an order to develop a new utility vehicle for the Swedish Army. A pre-run series of 90 vehicles, named the L2304, was delivered between 1959 and 1961. It was powered by a Volvo B16 engine. Full scale deliveries of the somewhat improved L3314 began in 1963. The L3314 was powered by the 1.8L B18.
The L33-series was offered with different body-variants such as hard-top, half-cab, soft-top, or special versions mounting anti-tank weapons. All vehicles are forward control (where the cab is located over the front axle), except the open L3304. The base version was the L3314SU softtop. Other versions were the L3314HT hardtop with mechanical winch, the L3304 anti-tank gun vehicle and the L3315 communications version, with a shielded 24V system. The L3314 was succeeded by the Volvo C303 in the late 1970s.
