If there is one brand that prides itself on building solid, solid and safe cars, it is Volvo. We were amazed when this Volvo PV 544 was parked. With the magical Swede with the round back, or the curvature of the roof and the back, the designation Katterug is completely justified.

Every weekend drive is a real pleasure for the Steenstra family with this top-class Volvo. His wife and the 3 sons think it is a great car to drive. The youth think it is a 'cool' classic and Teade Steenstra and his wife Hermine still experience it is special when they are spoken to about the property, the enthusiasts spontaneously put their thumbs up and that admiration for the Volvo PV 544 is fun for everyone.
Volvo PV 544
The Volvo PV 544 is a more modern version of the original PV 444. In terms of bodywork there is little difference, but the PV 544 is technically more modern. The car is flawless. Beautiful large convex forward with the sturdy sun visor above it. Simply insanely beautiful. The fact that it is an original Dutch car makes the property even more beautiful.
History of the BT-99-84
The Volvo PV 544 was cherished as a treasure by the previous owner. The last restoration was in 2006. The technical condition remained excellent all these years through constant attention and maintenance. The reason for the sale was the advanced age of the owner who appreciated that the Volvo went back to an enthusiast. Teade therefore received all information with the purchase. The complete history up to the old registration certificate. And not only that. He also received all the photos taken during the existence of this Volvo PV 544. It is better not to make a history visible.
Teade then gave the car a beauty treatment. He mounted white walls that give the Volvo an even more elegant look. The only thing Teade wanted was to replace the somewhat older technology, such as the radio. But that is not visible. The classic look remains. As an ICT employee in our hasty spectacle company, a ride with the Volvo is relaxing for him. And also as a key worker his knowledge about the Volvo technology is enhanced. For him, the Volvo functions as the medicine against stress. You just feel better in a Volvo PV 544 from the sixties.
