5k: So Many Questions: 1963 Volvo PV544 Inline-6

The PV444/544 was a passenger car made by Volvo for the post WWII car market.  The PV was the first unibody automobile from Volvo when it was first released for the 1947 model year and somehow managed to survive with little changes through the 1966 model year.  Imagine cross shopping Ford's iconic Mustang and this piece of bathtub shaped 40s steel in the same weekend in 1965.  What a hoot!  The PV444/544 was only ever powered by the Volvo's B-series inline four mated to the rear wheels...but...someone managed to shove a tri-carb fed domestic inline-6 up front in this one.  Find this 1963 Volvo PV-544 Inline-6 offered for $3,500 in Hamilton, OH via craigslist.  Tip from Scot.

I really don't mean to beat a dead horse here, but the easiest and most profitable way to sell your classic on craigslist is by including some basic information as to what a buyer is looking at.  Let's take a look at the entire text of the seller's ad.

runs and drives good new tires tinted windows just looking to get something different i like trading but will sell 3500 obo text or call

Seriously?  You are going to show photos of some non-cross flow inline six shoved in the front of this Volvo and leave ZERO information to its donor vehicle, marque or specification.

See another mystery car?
