I couldn’t access any official car sales data for the period in Sweden and the start of the sixties is a very tricky time to pinpoint a models leader in the country. The VW Beetle has spent the entire fifties in the lead and still held a huge 18.6% share in 1960 but it is #2 in 1965. It could well have topped the Swedish ranking for the entire period.
The Volvo PV 444/544 was #2 in 1960 with 14.7% share and stopped being produced in 1966, therefore being the least likely candidate for the pole position over the period. However the Volvo Amazon, only 4th at 8.1% in 1960 is the best-seller in 1965 and could have spent a couple of year on top before then.
