1963 VOLVO PV544 SPORT B18
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 carburetor versions were offered. designated B18A and B18D. respectively. The U. S. market saw very few B18A cars since the United States' public prioritized performance over fuel economy. Also in 1962. Volvo changed from 6- to 12-volt electrical
You are looking at a very original and rust free Volvo 544 B18. The car has been in the care of a fanatical Volvo collector for many years. If you have been watching ebay. you would have seen this car's "stable sister" listed several months back. The "other car" was an item to look at and admire while the car you see here was restored years ago to use as a driver. It appears to have received one repaint since the restoration. It is not a trailer queen! You are looking at an older restoration on a very solid 60 year old car. It is a lovely car with GREAT patina! It is an excellent running classic car that you can use daily. Having both cars side by side to compare I can tell you that this B18 Sport is a different driving experience. The standard 544 is nice to drive. but the Sport model you see here exhibits better turn in on corners. and the suspension does feel more modern from behind the wheel. The B18 Sport's steering feels a bit lighter as well.
The car has been well maintained and is ready to drive anywhere. The starter is new. The tires have less than 500 miles on them. The headlights. turn signals. and running lights are all functioning. The speedometer works. The odometer appears to have stopped working. Other new items include a fuel tank sending unit and carburetor jet tubes. 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.
