The Volvo PV444, the predecessor to the PV544, was introduced shortly after the close of WWII in order to fulfill the needs of the masses for a small economical car. The 444 was Volvo’s first uni-body construction car as well as Volvo’s first car to features a 4-cylinder engine in almost 20 years. The 444 saw massive success worldwide and entered the American market starting around 1956. The PV544 was phased into production starting in 1958. There were multiple subtle differences that set it apart from the earlier PV444 with the most important being the introduction of a 4-speed transmission as well as an upgraded power plant in the form of Volvo’s new B18 engine. The new 1.8-liter B18 engine had originally been developed for Volvo’s sporty P1800. It featured five main bearings and was available in both single and twin carburetor setups. In 1963 Volvo began production of the PV544 at their new Canadian production facility, the first such facility located outside of Sweden. The PV544 would remain relatively unchanged, despite a few minor cosmetic and mechanical changes, until the end of its production in 1966. The PV series of cars were a massive success for Volvo with approximately 440,000 cars being built and delivered worldwide over the 18-year production run.

The example on offer here, chassis number 428953 and engine number 22925, is a 1965 Volvo 544 (PV544). It is currently finished in grey with a red interior and is a well-preserved example throughout that is believed to have received only 1 respray in its life, in the correct factory color. The interior of the car is believed to be original and presents colorful patina throughout while remaining in nicely preserved condition. This 544 spent most of its life in Monterey, California where it resided with its original owner till being purchased by the current consignor out of the Pebble Beach area. As it sits today, this Volvo 544 remains in good condition with patina and character that back the originality of it scattered throughout. Mechanically this example remains in good useable condition and has been well looked after. This 1965 Volvo 544 presents as the perfect driver example for someone looking for a fun and reliable classic with plenty of character and charm.
