Volvo PV444 1947 Origin Sweden

As a herald of hope for peace and better times, in September 1944 Volvo presented the PV444 at an outsized Volvo exhibition in Stockholm. The worth was very attractive - 4,800 Swedish kronor, an equivalent because the ÖV4, Volvo's first car, cost in 1927.

American styling influenced the looks of the 444. This car was the primary Volvo to possess a unitary body without a separate frame. It had been also equipped with a laminated windscreen, a crucial new safety innovation. Interest was enormous and therefore the originally planned production figure of 8,000 cars became almost 2 Lakh before the PV444 became the PV544. The PV444 was the primary small Volvo car and therefore the one that basically set car production at Volvo moving.

Engine 1,414 cc, straight-four Top speed 76 mph (122 km/h) With unibody construction and a new overhead-valve engine, the Volvo was ahead of its time. The prototype had first been revealed three years earlier, in 1944. In 1956, the PV444 became the first Volvo to be sold in the US, in a more responsive, twin-carburetor form.
