The Volvo Sport (P1900) is a roadster of which sixty-eight units were built between 1956 and 1957. Assar Gabrielsson, Volvo's president and founder, got the idea for the car when he saw a Chevrolet Corvette in the United States and wanted to make something similar. Glasspar, an American boatbuilder in  California, tooled a fibreglass/reinforced polyester body, which was later produced in Sweden. Demand was low, and the build quality was not up to Volvo standards.
