It was actually made in Belgium by EBS (later named ACT) and distributed in Holland by Toncar.
I found and secured the remains of one some time ago and posted it on this forum (http://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=192485).
Even though it created a slight buzz, nobody was interested to do anything with it.

Yes I still have it.
I don't think that you'll find one in the UK so you'll hve to travel over the moat if you want one.

Are you selling it or keeping it ? Is it on a 440 where it belongs !

At present it is in a corner of my lock-up as I have no 440.
If someone wants to install it on his/her 440, I am willing to sell.

Im glad it still exists, Ive never seen one on a car and would love to, just to tick that box in my mental spotters corner.
If I still had a 440 I'd be doing an xmas cruise straight to you
Perhaps the OP would want it ?
