Rally Cars for sale

Rally Preparation Services are offering for sale this budget Volvo Classic rally car.

The Volvo PV 544 was introduced in 1958 as successor to the PV 444 which was their first monocoque construction car. The design of the PV 444 had been heavily influenced by the 1939 German Hanomag 1.3. (which had an understandably short production life as world events demanded production was switched to military half-tracks) and so by the time the PV 444 appeared in 1946 it was already slightly dated. With popularity, performance, reliability and robustness the PV 544 production carried on alongside the much more contemporary Volvo Amazon in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Not surprisingly the performance, reliability and robustness characteristics are endearing to rally drivers and teams and the PV series was rallied with great success including outright wins on the East African Safari, The Acropolis and the RAC rally.

Today the PV 544 (Personvagn, 5 occupants) still makes a great classic rally car.

This Volvo was imported from Sweden and started its rallying career about 10 years ago and features a number of performance and rally enhancements . The original engine has been replaced with a 5 bearing B20 power unit mated to a 4-speed transmission with overdrive and the somewhat marginal front drum brakes have been upgraded. Other rally preparation follows the tried and tested route. For safety, a full Safety Devices roll-cage with rear cross bars is installed alongside Corbeau GT seats, TRS harnesses and a 1.75 litre AFFF extinguisher. For protection a sump guard is fitted and, in the cabin there are additional gauges, a battery cut-off switch and a leather Mota-lita steering. Lightweight fibreglass wings are fitted all round. The car appears not to have rallied since the 2010 Alpine Trial and will benefit from some maintenance and fettling and any other works for its new keeper.

The car is currently residing at RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services.
