This is perhaps the most campaigned Volvo PV544 in the World.This famous rally car has been built to full “Appendix K” FIA Homologation competition specification and has always featured in the “Rally Scene”.
This extremely well know car was subject to an editorial in Classic and Sportscars magazine (April 1993) When the car was owned by the most prolific family of Rally entrants,Roger and Margaret Ealand.
The car has been constantly rallied and upgraded on a regular basis and is very much still on “Winning” form.
In 1992 this car took 2nd place,just one second behind the winner on the Monte-Carlo challenge.
In 1995 the car was again entered in the Monte-Carlo and won the touring class outright.
It has also been extensively campaigned by David Brown its previous custodian.
