1958 Volvo PV444 Historic rally car £7500
Here for sale is a 1958 split screen Volvo PV 444 with a tuned B16 with twin SU carbs.
The engine was completely rebuilt around 3000 miles ago by Bill Banister in Preston.
The car has been modified to make it more competitive over the years.
Notably, there is a four speed 144 gearbox, servo assisted 240 disc brakes, LSD, twin dampers at the front, a roll cage, fire extinguisher and a boot mounted fuel tank.
The car has been rallied extensively in the past and was once owned by Wesley Massam, who competed in it in the Monte Carlo rally twice. I
t is eligible to compete in the 1600 pre-1960 class and is very competitive in this field.
The car was restored in 2002 and had a re-wire at that time as well.
The car has been in storage for the last ten years and has seen little use.
It currently runs but will need recommissioning properly before being used competitively.
This is a seriously quick and nibble car for a 62 year old example and is great fun to drive.
The car comes with its original seats, spare wheels with mud tyres and a additional spare tyres
