Back in the early 1950's, Volvo's president/founder, Assar Gabrielsson, wanted to make his own version of a lightweight "sporty" car after seeing how well the Chevy Corvette was doing in the United States. He then contacted an American boat builder to help fabricate a fiberglass body for his 3-speed engine. The rest of the parts were "borrowed" from the Volvo PV444.
Since then, his Little Red Volvo has been in multiple car shows, shown at the Owl's Head Transportation Museum as the Featured Sports Car, and won the 2003 Grand Marshal's Award in the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance.
It was believed that Alan had #62 of 68 cars produced. But in doing some research recently, we now believe that Alan has in fact #68 of 68 cars. The very last p1900 ever made in factory. It truly is a rare one of a kind car.
