Volvo was already making a model called the PV36 Carioca, which was very expensive for the common man. And so as to counter the growing imports in budget priced cars, Volvo decided to launch a lesser powered, no-frill model and therefore introduced the PV51 in 1936.
With a 3.6 litre engine, this new car was given a new front while the rear part continued to have the design of that of a PV36. This car continued to be produced until the end of World War II.
