1963 VOLVO PV544. AMAZING CONDITION! SAME OWNER FOR 40+ YEARS!
The Volvo PV is a series of two door. four passenger car models — the PV444 and the PV544 — made by Volvo from 1943 to 1966. During World War II's early stages. Volvo decided that a new. smaller car delivering good fuel economy would assure the company's future. A raw materials shortage during the war drove home the point that an automobile should be smaller. and also complicated Volvo's ability to mass-produce the product. In 1944. when the car was finally introduced to a car-hungry public. response was very positive and orders poured in from the Swedish population. It was another three years though. in 1947. before the production was made available.
In 1958. the PV544 was phased in. Subtle differences with the PV444 included the introduction of a curved one-piece windshield to replace the two panes of flat glass. larger taillights. and a ribbon-type speedometer. The 444's 3-speed manual transmission was also supplanted by a 4-speed unit in the 544.
The next significant change occurred in 1962. when the B16 was replaced by Volvo's new B18 engine. initially developed for the P1800 sports car introduced the previous year. This 1. 8 L engine had five main bearings. Again single and twin carburettor versions were offered. designated B18A and B18D. respectively. The U. S. market saw very few B18A cars since the United States' public prioritised performance over fuel economy. Also in 1962. Volvo changed from 6- to 12-volt electrical
You are looking at an incredibly original and rust free Volvo 544. The car has been in the care of a fanatical Volvo collector since the early 1970s. It has been used on fair weather days only. and it shows! To be perfectly honest. I can't tell if the paint is original or not. but no paint work has been carried out on this car during the ownership of the collector (over 40 years). The undercarriage has been left original with no attempt to paint or undercoat.
The car has been faithfully maintained and is ready to drive anywhere. The starter is new. The headlights. turn signals. and running lights are all functioning. The exhaust is new. The speedometer and odometer are working. If you have not driven a PV554. then you are in for a real treat! Well sorted examples like this one are a pleasure to drive and are quickly gaining favor on a collector's short list of acquisitions! Feel free to call Sean at (772) 285-1460 if you have any questions.
