Finnish vehicle history
These pages present the history of the Finnish vehicle fleet. It is divided into three periods:
vehicles before 1922, vehicles from 1922 to 1944, and vehicles from 1945 onwards. The division is based on the start of nationwide registration in 1922 and the Second World War, which is reflected in a clear break in the vehicle fleet.
In addition to historical research, the Heritage Vehicle Register, which aims to preserve vehicles classified as significant in the history of Finnish road transport, is also presented. These pages also provide concrete advice on how to store vehicles.
