Description

This car came from Telemark county in Norway and was company mascot car from 1990 to 2016 when it was sold to a lady in Värmland who worked at that time in Norway. The car was imported and registered in 2020 and ready to drive in Sweden.
The car is very nice to drive on the road. Surprisingly alert and stable, with a nice distinctive gearbox and a strong engine.
Its condition is well maintained and in a working condition, without major flaws. It has been re-painted in original color at some point in the 1990s and at the same time had seats re upholstered as well as new carpets. The bodywork and paint work has held up well. Only a few smaller blisters can be found, see pictures. The front bumper is blistered in the chrome and the grill would need to be painted, otherwise, nothing to complain about. Its nice to drive and people happy to see you when driving.
Opportunity to buy one of Volvo's most practical classics, which was built for a full 17 years it was the reel Swedish work horse back in the day.

Facts about the model

Volvo PV Duett tillverkades mellan 1953 och 1969.
Volvo Duett togs fram på basis av Volvo PV för att öppna en ny marknad för dem som hade behov av en rymligare bil. Svaret blev Volvo Duett, som lanserades1953. Namnet kommer från Volvos tanke om bilen som både en transportbil och en personbil. Bilen formgavs och konstruerades av en ingenjör vid namn Erik Skoog. Innan dess hade varianter av PV-herrgårdsvagn/paketbil/ambulans med flera tillverkats av fristående karossproducenter på de särskilda leverans-chassier vid namn "PV 445" som Volvo introducerat 1949.
445-chassiproduktionen fortsatte vid sidan av Duettproduktionen löpande fram till 1961. PV 445 Duett, som Duetten hette från början, fick ny skepnad 1960 i form av P 210 Duett som skilde sig från föregångaren med till exempel hel vindruta istället för delad. Duetten kan ses som Volvos första kombi men blev kanske mest populär bland jordbrukare och hantverkare. Många kommer kanske ihåg de orange Duetter som under många år användes av Televerket. Andra storkunder var postverket (gula vagnar med svarta framskärmar och front) samt försvaret som i vissa fall utrustade vagnarna med flygspanarlucka i taket. Några få vagnar producerades med hel bakdörr.
Duetten utvecklades parallellt med Volvo PV 444/Volvo PV 544 och tillverkades ända fram till 1969. Den fanns i flera versioner, som skåpbil med täckta sidor, och med fönster. Volvo försökte göra en efterföljare i Volvo 145 Express, men den anses inte kommit i närheten av Duettens popularitet. Eftersom dessa bilar fick slita hårt under sina verksamma år finns få bevarade idag och de som överlevt är eftertraktade hobbybilar då de är fina att köra och fortfarande mycket praktiska.
