Finished in black, the last PV544 rolls off the production line at the Lundby plant on 20 October. At an outdoor ceremony that same day, 26 Volvo employees who have won a white PV544 each in a prize drawing and are presented with the papers to their new cars – a splendid way of rounding off production of the model which made such a difference to Volvo’s future.

Total production of the PV444 and 544 ends at 440,000 units, 160,000 of which were exported.

The official opening ceremony for the assembly plant in Ghent, Belgium, takes place on November 3rd.

This means that Volvo now has a production plant inside the Common Market.
