This is a 1961 PV544 with a B16 motor and spare B16 motor and some other valuable parts

Runs . Has some smoke out exhaust pretty sure valves need adjustment

Twin carbs ... paint job looks better in pictures it’s amateur job but works and body doesn’t seem to have much work done but I can’t tell

Has full MOONROOF similar to Volkswagens

New powder coated rims and tires few yrs Ago with receipts

Interior clean

Starts up and drives and runs but seems to need tuneup

Can be seen driven in coloma Michigan

The spare motor was supposedly gone over BUT can’t verify as previous owner died. I have compression tester here if buyer wants to test I’ve never done that before .

See a better way to drive thorsday?


  1. Nice red wheels!
    Not so sure about the random metallic blue paint under the hood, some sort of Swedish flag customization thing?

  2. Because a tune-up will always fix a car that has exhaust smoke. PFFFT!

    - Average Bear

  3. When all else fails go rat rod......still......... throw a skull and bones on the door and be subtler.......

  4. Anyone else here love where the heater blower motor is?

    1. With a little rerouting you can use it to add boost to the engine!
