Volvo Amazon 1965

Volvo Amazon 1965 for sale

The Volvo Amazon was in production from 1956-1970 and there were many variations. The engine alternatives were in the beginning B16 and then later the successful B18 and last the B20. These last two engines are known to be the toughest engines in the world.

Exterior: There is no other colour that suits the Amazon as well as black (19). It really makes all that chrome stand out. And, the chrome details on this car are in excellent condition, as well as the paint. The bumper guards have been removed for a wider sleeker look. But they come along with the car. It has also a sport suspension that makes the ride height slightly lower than original. Underneath this car was cleaned and the entire front and rear suspension was dismantled, all parts were sandblasted and painted and new bushings were fitted. There was never any rust on this car. We can not even find that it has been welded anywhere underneath.

Interior: Here the car is in very good and original condition. Still wearing original seat covers in very nice condition. Good headliner and all instruments work as they should. There is a new dashboard fitted recently and a textile carpet. It has seat belts also for the passengers in the back.

Engine: The engine fitted is a B20 for better power, and with this there is a Weber carburettor. It has a little bit more free exhaust system that gives it a very nice sound without being loud. The delivery of the power goes through a gearbox M41 J-type with overdrive. And, this makes the car wonderful to drive even on longer stretches or if you need to go on the highway. You are now cruising along in 110-120km/hr with ease.

History: This car was living its early life in one of the districts in Sweden where they did not use any salt on the road’s wintertime. The car was repainted by previous owner in 2012 and has never needed anything but regular maintenance. All bushing and joints in the front and rear were replaced in 2017. We also have the original engine and gearbox.

Interior: The interior really shows the quality of the Volvo leather that still looks like new in this car! Very nice original carpet and it is hard to believe the km reading looking inside this classic Volvo.

History: Just imported from Italy to Sweden. Previous owner was a collector and true Volvo enthusiast. The car had ASI Certification Automotoclub Storico Italiano in Italy. This is a format where the current owner of the car can go through a process to have his car certified that it meets the criteria for registration with ASI, that the car has met the historical regulations for the car. In other words, this car can be proven as being a certified from the date of manufacture to present day, that it is just as it left the factory and its history is known.

Volvo Amazon Kombi 1965

Volvo Amazon Kombi 1965 for sale

The Volvo Amazon Kombi was many times used by carpenters, painters etc. They used these cars until they were so beat up or rusted out that they could go no further, and were later sent to the scrap. That is probably the reason why it today is so hard to find a good Amazon Kombi.

Exterior: Repainted in 2016 with new chrome and rubber all around. This was a very good car already before the repaint. Rolling on 5,5 KPZ rims that were the wheels from Amazon Sport. (You can choose a set of original size wheels if you prefer.)

Interior: Looks like new inside! New seat covers, door panels, headliner and carpets. Everything works and looks very good inside. Spare, jack and original tools in its place.

Engine: Engine had a complete rebuild and the entire engine bay was made to look new again. Engine has covered a few hundred km and is not even broken in yet. Still runs perfectly. It is very quiet and gives great power. The entire brake system, clutch etc are also brand new.

History: Sold new in Sweden in April 1965 and had the same owner until 1989. The second owner put the car out of traffic in 1989, and it did not come back in to traffic until 2007. There were some owners in between and in total including dealers the car changed hands 7 times. Documents collected in a binder.

Volvo Amazon 122 Kombi

For sale: Volvo 122 Amazon Kombi 1965

The Volvo 122 Amazon kombi was a car used by many carpenters and painters during the 60's and 70's here in Sweden. It was affordable to buy, could fit a lot of stuff in the back and it was a real workhorse! This is probably the reason why it is so hard to find a Volvo Amazon in good condition today.

Surprisingly for this car however, there has been only one user over the years and he took great care of his Amazon. But at the end it was left sitting for too long so the engine seized up, and for this reason the engine is now completely rebuilt with new pistons and bearings. It is very strong and has a great sound. All fluids in the car are new and so are all hoses, clamps, pipes etc in the engine room.

The brake system has new master cylinder, new brake hoses all around, new shoes and cylinders in the back. Calipers in the front have new seals and dust covers. New pads and pins. Rebuilt brake booster.

There was not much rust on the body since the car had received a rust protection treatment at a very early stage. The two front fenders appear original and only a small section in the rear wheel arches was replaced. It was then repainted in original graphite grey color. Rust protection underneath is still moist and healthy.

The bumpers received a new high quality chrome and all other shiny parts on the car are in very good condition.

On the inside, it is the original material on the seats and this still looks like new! Original rubber floor mats. And it has recently received a new headliner and new carpet in the back. All rubber parts and seals have been replaced on all doors, windows etc. New torpedo wall carpet.

The wheels were painted in the exactly right color that was original for the Volvo Amazon and then fitted with the correct tyre size. New springs and shocks.

There is an original Volvo radio on the dash. All in all this car is now probably one of the best Volvo Amazon 122 kombi cars in the market.
