RealRides of WNY - 1956 Volvo

When I came across this 1956 Volvo PV 444 back in 2016 in a Tonawanda parking lot (inset photo), I said to myself that the owner had made a strange choice of custom taillamps. Then I saw it again a few weeks ago in a snowy Hamburg parking lot and did a little research. Lo and behold, those are the stock taillamps! The front grille however, appears to be a home-made affair (but similar in design to the tubular unit used on earlier PV 444 models). You can see the original 1956 grille below in a brochure illustration, and the earlier 1953 version at the bottom of the page.
