Volvo BM 565 / Kockum 565

The 565 was the biggest truck in the Volvo BM range. Its advanced design gave the vehicle a remarkably low ratio of tare weight to payload capacity for a truck of its size. Though the 565 was a large vehicle, it was easy to drive due to the excellent visibility from its forward-build cab.
