5k: Dumpling: 1964 Volvo PV544
The PV544 was the first modern unibody vehicle to come out of Volvo after the smoke cleared from World War II. It was a rugged and versitile car, powered by an early version of the legendary B-series inline-4 and a privateer PV544 driven by the legendary "Flying Sikh" Joginder Singh won the 1965 East African Safari Rally. Find this 1964 Volvo PV544 offered here on eBay currently bidding for $1,625 reserve-not-met with 2 days to go, located in Upland, CA.
Volvo produced an impressive 440,000 of the 1940s styled hunks of metal before production ended in 1966, long after pontoon fender styling had fallen out of favor. The PV544 is powered by a B18 inline-4 that was rated at 95 horsepower from its twin SU carb setup.
The seller includes a large number of square shaped pictures in some sort of low resolution homage to instagram, but what you can see is a decent interior and a paint job/exterior that needs some help.
