Definitely a Volvo PV 444.
This is one of the first series 'A' or 'AS' (1947-1950).

The first series don´t carry a letter, that´s made up afterwards. They are only PV 444 and all of them are sold as 1947 models, the PV 444 Special was built in a very small series 1950, as a 1950 model, shortly before the second series was introduced. So the PV 444 B and BS are the first to have a suffix, even if the designation is used everywhere these days.

We have that a lot, like 'Series I', 'Mk.I', 'Phase I', 'Modell A', etc. They all were introduced when a second version arrived. I think it is okay to use that, as this way we can differentiate between 'half identified' cars where the version is not known and those where we have the exact information.

Do you know if it is possible to identify the 'Special' from the outside ... if it is also black?

The Special was bluegreenish with trimming on the sides and on the fenders, if I remember right they also had chrome on the wheels and bumperguards of aluminium. Only standard cars were black, with few exceptions.

There´s a problem with the suffix, since Volvo didn´t follow the alphabet. They skipped a few letters here and there for the 444 cars, B C D E H K L was used. So adding an A for the first series does not really add to the logic here. But today even Volvo does that.

I think it´s important to try to be as historically correct as possible and keep the original designations clean from later made up Mk:s, phases or whatever. They fill a purpose I admit that, just as long as they are kept away from the modelname.
