“Freya” is one of only 6 PV444 series Volvos in the UK, having originally been delivered new to Mr Sven Lindqvist in Vanersborg, Sweden in 1956, in whose family she remained for 25 years. We bought her as a retirement project in 2017, when she was scruffy, but mechanically sound. Since then we have restored the bodywork and interior, rebuilt the (3 speed) gearbox and  vacuum wipers, and taken her to events as far afield as Stratford Upon Avon. Although not a motorway car, she bowls along happily at 45-50 mph, and gets there in  her own time. She has had one documented engine rebuild in an estimated half million miles of motoring. Not for nothing are these cars legendary for their toughness and longevity!
