The Volvo PV444, the predecessor to the PV544, was introduced shortly after the close of WWII in order to fulfill the needs of the masses for a small economical car. The 444 was Volvo’s first uni-body construction car as well as Volvo’s first car to features a 4-cylinder engine in almost 20 years. The 444 saw massive success worldwide and entered the American market starting around 1956. The PV544 was phased into production starting in 1958. There were multiple subtle differences that set it apart from the earlier PV444 with the most important being the introduction of a 4-speed transmission as well as an upgraded power plant in the form of Volvo’s new B18 engine. The new 1.8-liter B18 engine had originally been developed for Volvo’s sporty P1800. It featured five main bearings and was available in both single and twin carburetor setups. In 1963 Volvo began production of the PV544 at their new Canadian production facility, the first such facility located outside of Sweden. The PV544 would remain relatively unchanged, despite a few minor cosmetic and mechanical changes, until the end of its production in 1966. The PV series of cars were a massive success for Volvo with approximately 440,000 cars being built and delivered worldwide over the 18-year production run.
