Always Thorsday: 1962 Volvo PV544 Sprint

The Volvo PV544 was the first unibody automobile from Volvo and featured an early version of the legendary B-series inline four mated to the rear wheels.  Volvo produced an impressive 440,000 of the 1940s styled hunks of metal in 18 years of production -- but equally impressive is the fact that many of those cars are still running around the streets today in show car or daily driver trim.  Find this 1962 Volvo PV544 Sprint offered for $7,800 near Chaplin, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.




From the seller:
Very nice PV 544 Sprint ,no rust, had it down to bare metal re spray a few years ago, excellent re built B-20 motor, warmed up a little, mild cam, all bushings replaced with poly, gas shocks, IPD sway bars, sport exhaust. Many other upgrades. Not a 100 point restoration but a very nice example with the right suspension upgrades. No known problems, great handling fun car. At 74 the fun in no power steering, brakes, etc., isn't so much fun anymore.
