With a full professional nut and bolt restoration with a cost well over $80k to complete! The previous owner had the Volvo for over 26 years and was a personal labor of love and it really still shows today!
Dressed in a white finish. this Volvo is in excellent condition and restored to correct specifications. The restoration is Concours quality in every way. The undercarriage has been properly cleaned. steamed. restored and painted. New bushings and suspension parts have been changed where needed. The detail speaks to the quality of the work. Included are a group of photos. showing the painted body with suspension attached.
The paint and trim are in excellent condition. owing to the extensive restoration done. The glass panels are in very good order. The car's lights. tires and wheels and body panels are all in excellent condition and the car has its factory wheel covers. The trunk and engine bay are tidy and the battery is in good order and it has new bushings and suspension parts.
The B16A and B16B (single carb and twin carbs respectively) were a bored-out 1. 6L development of the B14A. which in turn was sired by the B4B. These B16 engines were fitted to the PV444 in its final two years (1957 and 1958). the Volvo PV544 in its 1958 introduction. The B16B sported twin SU HS4 carbs. notably larger than the B14A's HS2 carbs. Also. the remote oil filter attached next to the water pump on the ignition distributor side of the engine on the B14 had been relocated to a housing under the intake and exhaust manifold side on the B16. The exhaust manifold. which dumped centrally on the B14. now was made to exit towards the rear of the B16 manifold. The B16B motor in this car backs to a three-speed manual transmission.
Inside. the car has a white interior with a blue offset on the seats. The front buckets and rear bench are in excellent condition. The gray carpeting is in similar condition to the seats. while the light-colored headliner is in good shape. The white metal instrument panel with VDO gauges and chrome accents is in fantastic condition. as is the black. three-spoke steering wheel. The door panels are in very good condition. while the mirror glass and shift lever are in good order. The car is a radio delete example.
The PV444 was Volvo's first unibody car. It was also the first Volvo in almost 20 years to come with a four-cylinder engine.
By the 1957 model year. engine displacement was increased to 1. 6L and both single downdraft. B16A. and twin side-draft carbureted B16B versions were offered. Fuel economy was quite above average for cars sold in the United States. The average American car gas mileage in 1957 according to SAE papers was 12 miles to the gallon. The Volvo PV444 averaged 25 miles to the gallon U. S. and performance. particularly with the twin carburetor configuration. was brisk. The combination of performance and durability won over many two-seat sports car drivers. allowing them a pleasurable drive in the entire family's company if desired.
