The 1965 Volvo PV544 was the final version of the first postwar design by Sweden's long-time automaker, first introduced as the PV444 in 1944. The PV544 was also the first Volvo to have any significant impact on the American market.
The Volvo PV544 differed from the PV444 by having a one-piece (instead of divided) windshield, a larger rear window, revised interior, and minor trim changes. In appearance, however, the car remained nothing so much as a scaled-down version of the 1946 Ford (both Henry and Edsel would have been flattered), with a rounded fastback two-door-sedan body, tapering hood, distinct front and rear fenderlines, rectangular grille, and low-mounted integral headlamps.
Powered by Volvo's own (and excellent) four-cylinder B18B engine. Built to last indefinitely and reliably even in severe climates, the PV544 established Volvo's reputation for sturdiness and solid construction, which exists to this day.
The Volvo PV544 was also surprisingly quick in its time, and saw sporadic competition successes in the U.S. Ultimately, it was succeeded by the more stylish (but still very upright) Amazon/120 series, which borrowed much from it mechanically. The two lines ran side by side for several years, proof enough of the PV544's staying power.
