"A stylish and early Amazon in a nice and pleasant usable condition."


This is a very late B16 Amazon from the 1960 model year in a good, usable condition. It was sold new in Skåne to a painter living in Lund. The Amazon was renovated in 2015, undergoing metal work, welding, and painting. Some of the welding is of a utilitarian nature but serves its purpose. This particular car retains its unusual original front, which disappeared from the production line in 1961 when certain changes were made, such as larger holes for the grill halves. This happened concurrently with the introduction of the B18 engine. It also has original-mounted belts, which Volvo was the first in the world to have. Clean, nice, and well-maintained both inside and out. Also a clean and tidy engine room and trunk. The car comes with some documentation, such as older inspection protocols, an old registration document, and a lubrication schedule. Delivered inspected and ready to drive.
