Volvo's made from the mid 50's until mid-late 80's are among the most notoriously difficult to identify. That is because they used different names depending on the market where they were sold and had many levels of equipment variations.

From the above picture I can see that it has plastic covering of the rear bumper. That would make it 1981+ if made in Europe or 1983+ if made for USA or Canada.
-It has a metallic paint in a nuance which I believe I've only seen on the 260's (or GL in USA or Canada). And in any case not on a entry model (that is DL or similar).
-It has head rests at rear as well as at front, but no cushions. If having cushions it usually indicates a GLE, GLT or Turbo model as no other models had rear head rests fitted as standard. But it might have been offered as optional extra. Or have the cushions been removed because of filming?
-I cannot see if it has a chromed horisontal strip between the upper and lower parts of the rear lamp cluster. If it does, that would indicate a GL or GLE rather than a GLT or Turbo.
-Also similar with the strip above the plastic covering of the rear bumper. If it is chromed, it would indicate a GL or a GLE. If black, it would rather point towards a GLT or Turbo.

Perhaps likely a GLT or Turbo, but if so it would have had a black rear stem. Which the above car most definitely hasn't.

I don't know what to make of it.


Edit:
After some more studying of the picture, I now believe it has the old pumpers, and 1979+ rear lights cluster (if 264, otherwise 1983+ if GL European spec. or 1981+ if USA or Canada) but a 1981+ colour. Hence likely made for USA or Canada.
The shiny bits around the rear window might point towards a GL, with the bumper painted black.

I (think I) belive this is 1981-82 Volvo GL, made for USA or Canada.
