Description

Volvo_8.jpg (50041 bytes)



This car is still "alive" today primarily because during World War 2 (1939-1945), the Swedish military took tires from all known Volvo PV-658. These tires fit the Volvo military vehicles. This left all PV-658s parked in garages or otherwise stored, without spokes and tires. Following the end of the war, most of the other PV-658s were not in good condition or were taken to the junkyard.

The renovation of this 1935 Volvo PV-658 was difficult. It took Tommie Björkman and his colleague Mats Johansson in Sweden 6 years of hard, careful work to accomplish this task. Each and every part was disassembled from the car, and the body was renovated before the paint job in the workshop. Today this PV-658 is the only surviving PV-658 in the world.
