"Well-maintained and fully functional car with traces of the ravages of time and use over the years, which gives a nice original feeling."


If you want to have the opportunity to use and manage a Swedish icon, this is the car for you. The unique thing about this car is not that it has been in the same family for a long time, but that it is as the PVs were back in the day. This is how they looked when they were used for both parties and everyday life. Swedish steel was roaring along the highway. Always maintained and repaired when necessary, but with its integrity preserved. The odometer shows 66050 km. Even with moderate use for less than 75 years, it is likely that the gauge has turned around the clock one revolution because that's what these old gauges do at 100,000 km. Sothe probable mileage is 166,050 km. The seller had to take over the car from a relative in 1998. He is now letting it go as he stopped driving due to his age. The car has had 4 owners total. Instruction book, spare wheel and tools are included. Best of all, you don't have to worry about the car's 6-volt electrical system. The car has both a new battery and a low beam installed.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Volvo's durable B4B engine of 1.4 litres and 40 hp. The gearbox is an original 3-speed with an unsynchronized low gear. Starts easily and runs fine. These older cars with unsynchronized 1'a require a relaxed and harmonious driving style. The car is fully functional and ready to drive. 6-volt electrical system with new starter battery. Equipped with a heat pack, something that was optional when the PV 444 was introduced. Double heating packages have been installed here. An important thing to remember is that the car only has original driving direction arrows. This is approved by Swedish car testing, but modern drivers often miss when the arrow is folded out. An update with small discreet indicator lights is recommended for safer driving in modern traffic environments.

  • Interior condition:

    Well-preserved interior with a nice headliner. We believe the seats are original and that the front door panels were replaced in the 1990s. Very nice dashboard and nice rubber mats on the floor. A little wear on the steering wheel contributes to the charming patina. Nice rubber seals.

  • Exterior condition:

    Let's state right away that this car has not been renovated to mint condition, as has been done with many other early PV 444s. This car has been serviced and repaired, but not renovated. This means that the paint has some wear, stone chips and small damage that are completely natural for a car that is 75 years old. There are also some older improvements to the paintwork. There are some minor dents around the car. See the pictures. Of which we can mention indentation on the left rear wing, scratch marks on the bottom of the left door. Polishing the paint would bring up more shine and a bit of gentle panel beating could straighten out some of the bumps without repainting. Otherwise, we recommend that the car be enjoyed in its natural condition. Chrome and trim are in good used condition. Equipped with older diagonal tires that give the car the right profile. The roof rack on the car is an original Volvo roof rack.

  • General condition:

    Fully usable and a nice classic with great historical value. Good overall impression and a nice patina.
