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.
