Loud knock/thumping

Hello,
I was driving my 1973 Volvo 164 yesterday and after accelerating up a hill, a loud knocking/thumping sound started in the front end. It only occurs when the car is moving and changes speed with the cars speed.
I quickly investigated but didn’t see anything.
Any ideas of what it could be?
Thanks

    Check all wish bone rubbers with a small pinch bar and engine mounts as the old B30 is a big heavy motor, my old 1973 164 had a piece of 10mm plate welded underneath the front cross member as they were known to bend.

    Fixed it! Noise gone. My fault. I didn’t tighten the lug nuts enough on the drivers side front wheel.

    LOL the exact same thing happened to me on my 145 once!
