Description

Volvo is Latin for “I roll”. The first examples were built in the late 20’s, showing the visual identity which all Volvos, from sports cars to Class Eight tractor-trailers, still bear, the diagonal arrow across the grille, the Swedish symbol for the element iron. The first Volvos were full size, powered by four and six cylinder engines.

After the war Volvo seized upon the opportunities of the time to introduce the PV444, a smaller car that blended Swedish practicality with American styling (“PV” stands for the Swedish “personvagen”). It and its successor the PV544 continued in production from late 1944 through 1969. In the PV444, the designer, Helmer Petterson, created a two-door fastback 4-seat sedan that still looks streamlined, attractive and refined. Independent front suspension with coil springs, a well controlled semi-elliptical leaf spring live rear axle and a rigid structure made the PV444/544 popular throughout the world.

This superb Volvo PV 544 is finished in a delightful shade of green with a beautiful beige fabric/vinyl interior. The 1800cc motor is said to run very well, and the transmission operates very smoothly.

Very popular for classic shows, tours and rallies, this PV544 makes the ideal starter classic – this wonderful example is the nicest we have seen in a long time.
