The Volvo PV is a series of two-door, our-passenger car models -- the PV444 and the PV544 -- made by Volvo from 1947 to 1966. During World War II's early stages, olvo decided that a new, maller car that could deliver good fuel economy would assure the company's future. A raw materials shortage during the war drove home the point that an automobile should be smaller, nd also complicated Volvo's ability to mass-produce the product. In 1944, hen the car was finally introduced to a car-hungry public, esponse was very positive and orders poured in from the Swedish population. It was another three years though, ntil 1947, efore series production began.
The PV444 was Volvo's first uni-body car. It was also the first Volvo in almost 20 years to come with a 4-cylinder engine. The first PV444s were powered by a 40 PS 1.4 L inline-four engine designated the B4B, ith three main bearings, verhead valves, nd a single downdraft carburettor. The power of this engine increased to 44 PS (32 kW) in October 1950, nd to 51 PS (38 kW) in October 1955. US models, eginning to appear in the US in early 1956, eceived an uprated version called the B14A which was given twin side-draft 1½ in S.U. carburetors for a total of 70 hp.[3] Most early US sales were limited to Texas and southern California
