History of the 1958–1966 Volvo PV544
Volvo’s first post-war product, he 1947 PV444, ooked very much like a pre-war American car—a 1942 Ford to be specific. On introduction, owever, he Volvo was little dated as the 1946-48 Ford Tudors were dead ringers for the ’42s. Nevertheless, y 1949, he PV444 was already looking long in the tooth and by 1958 when the visually unchanged PV544 came out, t looked positively antique.
Although visual changes were minor (a curved one-piece screen replacing a flat split screen), nder the skin, he PV544 marked the introduction of the indestructible 1.8-liter B18 five-main-bearing, win-SU carb, our-cylinder engine and an all-synchro four-speed gearbox. A particularly rigid unibody coupled with a well-located live rear axle and decent 9-inch drum brakes made for a reasonably entertaining car that was rallied with some considerable success in period. Road & Track was able to get their test car to go 0-60 in about 14 seconds or around a half second slower than an MGB-GT. Top speed was a bit over 90 mph while 25-29 mpg was possible.
