"The owner, who's fond of classic Volvos, has to sell the PV he bought this summer to fund the completion of his new house. The car was fully renovated, in excellent running condition, and exempt from inspections for life. Just turn the key and drive home."


This car was originally delivered to its first owner in Växjö on June 10, 1963. It stayed in Växjö until the second owner took possession in 1974. Subsequently, a third owner from Växjö acquired it in 2018 and embarked on a comprehensive restoration project, which was completed in 2022. The current owner had been searching for a fully restored PV for many years, and this one met all of their criteria, including the desired Dark Grey color. Today, the only reason for selling is the owner's final stages of building their house.

During the renovation, the entire car was stripped down to bare metal, meticulously repaired, and repainted to a high standard. The underbody is exceptionally clean, as shown in the pictures. All suspension and underpinnings appear new, and the engine and gearbox were overhauled with many new parts, including the carburetor, electrical cabling, brakes, fuel pump, and rubber hoses, among others.

The interior received a makeover with new seat covers, door cards, a dashboard top cover, and a painted instrument panel. Original rubber parts are included but show some damage on the passenger side. The total cost of these renovation efforts would typically exceed 200,000 SEK. This presents a unique opportunity to own a turnkey PV that promises trouble-free driving and low maintenance at a very reasonable price. Some minor tweaks and adjustments may be needed, as the car hasn't been driven extensively since its restoration. The car comes with older documentation.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The car starts effortlessly with a smooth-sounding engine, offers easy and precise gear shifting, and responsive brakes. It boasts attractive wheels and tires. It requires nothing more than routine servicing for many years to come. With a lifetime exemption from inspections, it's ready to drive home and enjoy.

  • Interior condition:

    As previously mentioned, the interior has been renovated and is in excellent, damage-free condition. There are only two minor points to note: the rubber floor mat on the passenger side has some damage, and newer speakers have been installed on the doors. However, it's worth mentioning that new replacement door cards are included with the car, as shown in the pictures.

  • Exterior condition:

    The bodywork of the car is exceptionally straight, featuring well-fitted panels and showing no signs of rust or damages. The underbody is impressively clean, although there are some signs of welding work. The paintwork is of high quality, boasting a vibrant finish, and the chrome accents gleam brightly. It's worth noting that minor adjustments to the doors for alignment may be necessary, as is often the case after some time and post-restoration driving. Overall, the chrome work and glass are in excellent condition and contribute to the car's appealing appearance.

  • General condition:

    Indeed, this car represents a fantastic bargain for its new owner. The cost of renovating a car to this exceptional standard can be quite substantial, and with this purchase, you'll enjoy many trouble-free years of motoring ahead. It's an excellent investment for both car enthusiasts and those seeking a reliable and well-restored classic vehicle.
