A friend of mine recently purchased a 1957 PV830, 6-cilynder side-valve hurse (yes, for transporting dead people), originated from Denmark. He asked me to use the Net in order to get as much info as possible on this rare vehicle. Handbooks, pictures, history, available parts, etc. Anyone? E-mail at [email protected] Thanks!

Here is a website for a firm that is in the Bereivement trade (as they call it) and collects,restores and sells hearses. W R Bennett Funeral Coaches http://www.hearse.com
Hearses, flower cars, etc. are known as Professional Cars and here is the site for their organization. http://www.professionalcar.org/index
Here is also a club in San Francisco that is made up of people who own hearses for daily driver cars, they meet once a month for a "Grimride" cruise and a few beers. http://www.best.com/~border/grimrides/grimrides.shtml
WR Bennett is a great soursce of info as is Professional Car Society-PCS has a bulliten board you can ask questions on and meet other owners. Both WR Bennett and PCS also list souces for info and have a number of members in Europe and South America. (It's funny all the hearse pictures from Sweden are of American made Hearses (Packard, Cadilliac, etc).
I was also looking for info on Volvo hearses and yours is first I have ever heard about.
Please let me know what other info you locate. If the vehicle is in USA I'd like to see it sometime.
Here is hoping you have a nice ride but up front not in the back!
