VThe Volvo PV was created by a team of about forty Volvo employees, and Helmer Petterson, like many other Volvo employees, had a past in the United States. He already worked with motorcycles at Excelsior in Chicago in the 1920s, and during the 1930s he returned to Sweden to work for both GM and Ford dealers. One day he was out on a trip to Skövde, Sweden with Assar Gabrielsson. Petterson then suggested that Volvo should build a small car, and said that he himself had ideas about what such a car would look like.
The first prototype was officially presented on September 1, 1944 in the Royal Tennis Hall in Stockholm. However, series production did not start in earnest until February 1947.
I Augusti 1965 lanserades PV544G. Med möjlighet till högre motoreffekt om 95HK. Den 20 Oktober rullade den sista vagnen av bandet med en total om 3.400 bilar av modell ”G”. Detta exemplar är lackerad i kulören ”Pärlvit” (Kod: 79-1).
This car has few owners and is in good condition. It runs well in the engine and has the potential, with a little love and care, to become a really nice gem.
