We have had quite a few 544s on Mint so it doesn’t surprise you that we zeroed in on this one. Many of the other featured Volvos were refreshed or restored to the new owner’s specifications.

We are confident that Volvo enthusiasts will read this featured listing and we have many of them. Our other readers who have not yet warmed to the charm of a 544 will probably take a pass. This one is Mintworthy because it allegedly has 44,000 original miles. We like the red exterior and don’t know what is inside. Probably grey if we know the Swedes. This is a Portland, Oregon car and if it has been in Portland all of its life, it might actually be rust free. We have visions of this one without whitewalls and with body color wheel and no wheel covers. An old friend calls that Stage One rally tune. These are easy to work on and parts are easily obtainable. We would go to Stage Two rally by installing some IPD suspension upgrades and adding a few vintage rally lights front and rear. Nothing too big. The seller is asking $9700 and if it checks out to be an accurate description, then it is a good place to start. Click here for the Craigslist ad.
