"Untouched Amazon in an incredibly pristine original condition, runs very smoothly, and looks as if it has just exited the sales showroom."


The car was purchased in May 1968 from Upplands Motor in Uppsala by Arne Gullbrand. He exclusively used the car during the summer months and always kept it in a garage when not in use. He drove the car until 1985 when his son, Lars Erik Gullbrand, took ownership. At that point, the car had traveled around 6,000 miles.

Lars Erik lived in Ronneby and was employed at F 17 in Kallinge, where he had the opportunity to store the car in a conditioned aircraft hangar. It remained there for 29 years and was sparingly driven during the summer months, accumulating about 1,000 miles during this time.

The current owner purchased the car in 2014 and has only driven it sparingly during the summer to attend events and exhibitions, where it has won several awards.

Facts about the model

The major updates on the 1968 Volvo Amazon included the split steering column and the new safety steering wheel that collapsed upon impact. The cars were now equipped with power brakes and the small knobs on the seats for adjusting the lumbar support. Additionally, the wiper arms were treated with an anti-glare coating.

At the end of 1967, the production of all four-door Amazons ceased, but the two-door version continued production until 1970. During the 1960s, the Amazon was Volvo's major volume car and a significant success both in Sweden and on various export markets. It was appreciated for its sturdy construction and reliability.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
