This convertible is home made. The chassis was bought from Liljas Bil AB in Borgholm, Sweden and the trip home from the store went on small gravel roads, sitting on a stool. The first owner built the car under a period of 1½ year in his fathers garage. The back hatch is from a 1938 Buick and the back fenders are fetched from Opel Kapitän 1951.
Through the years the car passed a few owners and somewhere along it was cut up. In 1970 a new owner started a reconstruction and had built a new chassis when he sold it in the late 80;s. The present owner is a serious PV enthusiast and the convertible is awaiting its second life on the roads.

Information about this chassis is collected from the members magazine PV-entusiasten of the swedish Volvo PV-club. Read about more details according this car in issue #4 1988.
