Volvo Style Pickup!

'59 Volvo pickup

Volvo pickup you say? Volvo never built a truck version of the PV444 or PV544, but that didn’t stop anyone from building this one. This is the best little pickup we have seen today! Listed here on eBay in Fountain Valley, CA is this 1959 Volvo pickup conversion with a high bid of $6,300 at the time of writing.

There is very little information provided with the ad so please review the images and ask the owner any question you may have concerning this sweet little ride. One thing the owner does mention is the “Rhino Bed” and that much of the truck is new. And from our own research, it seems a Swedish Coachbuilder built this truck shortly after it left the Volvo factory.

There is a beautiful new interior with better than new seats! This really looks like a place we wouldn’t mind being, especially for trips around town to pickup parts!

These were all the photos included in the ad, but we sure would like to see more detailed images. Given that this was a custom built truck, we want to see how the work was done and that it still looks good today. There is B20 under the hood, which we know to be bullet proof. It currently wears new paint, new tires and brakes, so we assume it is ready to go. It looks like time to pick up some hardware and supplies in style.  If one of you picks this up, please let us know!

    It’s a good thing this one is far away in CA and I’m on “car restriction” with the wife, otherwise I might just hit the bid button.

    I don’t think this is a one-off custom job, but a coach-built on a 445 chassis.

    While certainly not a pick-up, I saw this little lunch truck in Ontario in LA last week.

    This most likely started out as a volvo duett delivery van. They are popular in sweden for young boys to make them into EPA tractors they are limited to a top speed of ca 20 miles per hours, till they are old enough to get a drivers license, at eighteen years of age.

    This really hit a nerve with me. My 1st car ( that I actually drove on the roads) was a 1958 Volvo 444 that I bought in 1971 for $50. I trashed that poor thing, ( found out later, Volvo switched to the 544 in ’58, so I very well could have had one of the last 444’s) and it secured my love for older Volvo’s. The car came with a B16, so the B20 is an update, but to be perfectly honest, there was nothing wrong with the B16. I agree, it must have started out as a wagon, you can see the bottom behind the door is the same. Unbelievable job here, I’d love to have it.

    Seriously want to buy this pickup, but unfortunately the owner does not reply to my questions about more information. Also note that the eBay seller has no reviews at all. It stands at $8,600 now. Still worth it, if it’s a driver, and the title can transfer here in CA.

    You could buy a “delivery chassie” from Volvo and take it to a coachbuilder in the 50-ies and 60-ies. They are quite common here in Sweden as pickup trucks. I’ll guess that there’s almost a 100 of them still alive.
    A company calld “Valbo” made really nice looking convertibles from PV 444 and 544 back in the days.
    I’m sorry if I’m miss spelling… My swedish is better. 😊

    Good thing I did not see this car this morning. Upper management would have me sleeping in it.
