"A Volvo PV in a fine shape. It occasionally emits blue smoke from the exhaust pipe. Despite this it runs well."

Description

The original color of olive green has been repainted. New exhaust pipe, ceiling, passenger seat, and bumpers have been installed.

21st of August, 2018 Kraftoljan treated the underbody with linseed oil. The car was purchased at a surplus warehouse after the seller's father-in-law used it as an investigation car for the police in Östersund. It was owned until 1998, when the owner died and the seller's brother-in-law was given permission to take over ownership. It had only been used for PV club summer outings until 2018, when the brother-in-law died and the seller was given permission to take over the car. It has remained standing since then. There are traces of it having been used by the police in the luggage compartment. It is noted where an extra fan belt, shovel, and other items would be stored.

The car feels good and performs well on the road, but it occasionally emits blue smoke.

Facts about the model

Det viktigaste skälet till att vidareutveckla PV 444-konceptet, var av ekonomisk art - karossverktygen var sedan länge betalda och de ändringar man fick göra för den "nya" modellen kostade endast omkring 3 miljoner kronor, mot beräknade 35 miljoner kronor för en helt ny kaross. Ett trumfkort i USA var dessutom andrahandsvärdet. Redan efter några år kunde Volvohandlarna visa på att en PV 444 under första året endast tappat cirka 8 % i värde, medan en amerikansk bil tappade upp till 40 % redan under första året.

Vindrutan hade nu förstorats med 22 % samt gjorts högre och dess svepyta hade ökats med 43 % och bakrutan var 19 % större och hade sänkt nederkant. Munstycken till vindrutespolare var standard, men pumpen var extrautrustning. Bilen hade nu blivit besiktigad för fem personer i Sverige, genom att baksätet hade blivit 17 centimeter större i höjd med dynan. Karossformen gjorde dock att förbättringen i axelhöjd inte kunde bli mer än 5 centimeter. Framstolarna hade gjorts tunnare, så att knäutrymmet i baksätet ökade med 6 centimeter. Standard PV:n kostade i Sverige 9 250 kronor, modell Special I kostade 9 520 kronor och Special II 10 375 kronor.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
