Here are 3 Volvos that I photographed at the Footman James Classic Car Show at EventCity, Manchester in September 2016.
This is a 1957 Volvo PV444-08 that was imported from Sweden in 1985 by the owner of a Devon Volvo Dealership and used very little for the next 14 years. It is one of only four Volvo PV444-08’s known in Europe and the only example in the UK. PV444-08’s were produced for the USA Market only, but a few did escape onto the home (Swedish) market. These cars can be recognised by the fact that they are fitted with the sports B16B engine which has twin SU 1¼ carburettors.
This car, pictured in the car park outside the arena, is a 1972 Volvo P1800ES, a 2 litre fuel injection estate version of Volvo P1800.
