Translating…

This 1957 Volvo PV444 was acquired by the seller 23 years ago out of a field and subsequently modified with the intention of entering the La Carrera Panamericana. The car is finished in red over a two-tone red and tan interior, and power comes from a 2,166cc B20 inline-four mated to a four-speed M41 manual transmission with overdrive. Modifications include Volvo 142 suspension and brakes, dual Weber carburetors, and more. This PV444 is now offered with a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.

Introduced in 1943 and produced until 1958, the PV444 was Volvo’s first unibody car. This example was originally finished in black and was repainted in red during the seller’s refurbishment. The trunk and passenger compartment floors were both replaced due to corrosion, and the seller states additional corrosion bubbles appear on the doors. The lighting is comprised of Cibie lights including H4 headlamps, Iode 45 yellow spots, and Tango foglights. The condition of the paint and trim is shown up close in the gallery below.
