Volvo Amazon 122S Very good condition, long term ownership (1966)




On November 9, 1966, this Volvo Amazon 122S was delivered new and provided with a registration number in the Netherlands, after which it remained registered in the Netherlands for the rest of its life. The last owner has owned the car since December 1986, you call that long-term ownership’. This does not surprise us because the Amazon is such a typical car that takes you everywhere, is incredibly reliable and despite its age is still fine in today’s daily traffic, why should you distance yourself from that?
The Volvo has been lovingly restored in the past, maintaining its originality. The car has been provided with new paint in the original Volvo colour 89, light blue.
The interior (it could just be that this is the original) also corresponds to the factory data, namely black imitation leather (417-515). Standing warm in the garage, waiting for that sunny day for a walk around the church is not how this example (has) led its life. Tatra Trail 2011, Monte Carlo 2012, Nordkapp 2014, Sweden and Finland, are just a few of the trips this Volvo has made.
The above proves once again how reliable Amazon is. The general condition is of course very good, paint and chrome are beautiful, so the interior looks very original with the correct signs of wear. The B18D (corresponding to this type 122S) engine is equipped with double carburettors and runs like a charm, the gearbox functions well, this example also has overdrive in addition to the 4 (manual) gears, great for long distances. The body is in very good condition with only a few minor signs of wear, and the fits of the various parts are very good.
Typically Dutch, the car is equipped with a towbar, so the caravan can go on holiday. We expect this copy to continue on its way soon, in any case, it is ready.
