Volvo F10 Bro WreckerPatrick Dyer’s first book on Volvo, dealing with the F88 and F89, took the reader up to the F88 290 – a truck intended as a stop gap during the development of the F10 and F12. In 1977, the F10 and F12 with their dramatic new cabs were revealed to the world at the Frankfurt show. However, Volvo was never a company to rest on its laurels and in 1979 it delighted drivers and confounded the competition by introducing an entirely new concept to the market – the raised roof sleeper. The Globetrotter was born.
