1958 Volvo PV544 Sport

In August 1958, the Volvo PV544, a more modern version of the PV444, was introduced. The body was given a larger, convex windscreen together with a larger rear window to improve visibility. Inside, a new dashboard with a padded upper half to improve interior safety was fitted, an ultra-cool 'thermometer' speedometer showed the speed with a red strip and the rear seat was remodelled to improve comfort and provide space for an additional person. While the Volvo PV444 (apart from in North America) had only been available with one engine alternative, with the PV544 a second version was added and a 4-speed manual gearbox was also made available for the first time.

This Example

This beautiful LHD 1958 Volvo PV544 boasts an 1800cc B18 engine, with some special features that deliver additional performance:

- Ported head with higher compression

- Rally C-camshaft

- Twin S.U. carbs

- Oil cooler

It was recently rebuilt to successfully complete a Johannesburg to Nairobi road trip.

The upgraded leather interior provides longevity to the classic interior, for a comfortable everyday ride.

The rebuilt engine and gearbox are highly maintained and regularly serviced by the owner.

Papers are in order (status reflects 'Used/gebruik') and licence is up to date.

Available to view by appointment in Johannesburg.
