"A good object that needs a renovation both mechanically and aesthetically."


Bil Bengtsson is a successful company that has been around for more than 90 years. Over the years, they have collected some cars that were worth saving for the future. As they now go through the collection, which needs to be reduced due to space constraints, several interesting vehicles are being sold. Most of them have been sitting for a while and need a startup service as well as a brake overhaul.

This Amazon has had only one previous owner and was added to the collection in 1991.

Facts about the model

With the Amazon model, Volvo Cars AB initiated a new era where they challenged other car manufacturers with a beautiful body, high safety, and secure handling. The debut took place in 1956 and the model lived for a full 14 years, with the last Amazon being produced in 1970. The model series complemented both the older PV and the newer 140 series during its lifetime. In 1969, the Amazon's second-last year of production, the car was still considered attractive to Volvo customers due to its high reliability and robust construction.

The 121, the two-door version, is considered by many as the most beautiful Amazon variant. With its almost Italian line play - design chief Jan Wilsgaard was inspired by Italian cars of the time when he designed the Amazon in the early 1950s - and in black paint, the Amazon is both sober and elegant at the same time. According to Wilsgaard, American cars, and especially Kaiser, were also a source of inspiration.

The proven B18 powertrain with a four-speed manual gearbox is easy to service and maintain, and there are still plenty of parts available for the Amazon, including newly produced parts.

For the first eight years, the Amazon was produced at Volvo's original Lundby plant, but with the inauguration of the Torslanda plant in 1964, Amazon production was phased over to the completely new facility. The Amazon was also built in Belgian Gent and assembled in Halifax (Canada), Durban (South Africa), and Arica (Chile). In 1969, Volvo replaced the previous B18 engine in the Amazon with the newer and larger B20 engine, which gave extra power to an already strong Volvo model. The last Volvo Amazon was produced on July 3, 1970.
