Borrowed heavily from Volvo’s first unibody car PV444 which in turn was borrowed from German made 1038 model called Hanomag 1.3 (this car was imported by Volvo engineers to study), the PV445 was a variant that was put in to use as an estate car (stationwagon), van and small trucks. It all depended on the application.
Rightly named as Duett (Duet) the idea was to convince people of using the car as a service/delivery van during the daytime and as an estate car in the evenings. With a 1.4 litre engine (in 1956 it was replaced by a more powerful 1.6 litre engine), the Volvo PV445 Duett was produced for eleven years starting from 1949. Until 1960 over 45,000 were produced. This car was replaced by the arrival of the Volvo 145 Express.
The Volvo Service team used this car for her customers.
