An interesting old car

I found this whilst recently visiting a customer. I think it's a Volvo PV an early one as it has a split screen, it just appears to have been parked up and left.


1950's Volvo PV. 444 Maybe? MGB behind by Tim J Preston, on Flickr

There's also an old MGB parked up behind it.

Must be an early RV, it has a picnic table mounted on the front bumper!

Unusual to see a Volvo with its headlights off in the daylight!

Re: An interesting old car

Surely a worthy restoration project for someone? May do Pete instead of his Jag??
