"Well maintained car in good original condition. HS was the finest model Volvo PV in 1954"

Description

A genuine Norrland car that has never been renovated but has been re painted at sometime. This PV comes with complete history and documentation and has only had three owners since it was sold new and today has a beautiful patina.
The car has spent its whole life being driven around the northern part of Sweden. This HS model is equipped with roof mounted sun blinds, fog lamp, reflectors in the rear bumper and chrome exhaust pipe. It is also prepared for an aerial and speakers.
When the current owner took over the car in 1987 he restored the brakes and the B4B engine. In addition, he used specialist body expert to fix the body work before it was painted. During the 1990s, the engine was again over hauled and replaced the valve springs. Today the car has normal small leaks that’s relates to all Volvo PV model of this year

Inside, the car is completely untouched with very nice fabric, due mainly to the fact it’s had seat cover. The head liner has some stains and the paint is now matt, which is totally normal for the cars age.

This PV444 has white wall radial tires with good tread.
The car comes with a binder full of documents, an almost complete series of workshop handbooks and price lists from 1954.
