"Reliable and pleasant Amazon, with some exterior touch-ups needed to make it even more pristine"


It was delivered new in May 1964 by Västbo Bilförsäljning AB in Smålandstenar to the current owner's father-in-law. He took meticulous care of the car and had it rust-proofed more frequently than recommended. And this can be seen in the pictures from underneath. Father-in-law Evert loved his Amazon, but wasn't as fond of driving it, hence the relatively low mileage. Judging by everything, the meter has circled around once, and the actual mileage is 108,220 km (10,822 mil in Swedish). The last and therefore final inspection was noted at 855 km, and they must have mistakenly read twos for fives. The current owner's wife inherited her father's car in 2003, and they have stored it in a shed in the garden. Their son intended to get it back on the road, but neither time nor opportunity was there. About a year ago, the current owner decided, "Either it goes to the junkyard or I fix it". He chose the latter, and the interior was the main challenge. Or more precisely, it required the most purchase of new parts. There's thorough documentation, including the first registration certificate, the warranty document, and an original workshop manual.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Good mechanical feel, and among other things, the car has received a new alternator, fuel pump, brakes, and heating valve/connection. The latter is not original but is actually more convenient than the original. A set of older winter tires on nice original rims is included.

  • Interior condition:

    The car has recently received a brand new interior after mice had their party. The seats, with their headrests, are actually for a 1970 model year, but they were available as optional equipment later in the model cycle and were also standard, for instance, in the German market.

  • Exterior condition:

    Repainted sometime in the early seventies when the first owner worked as a security guard at a community park in Smålandstenar. He expelled a few misbehaving guests, who knew who he was and which car he drove. They vented their frustration by jumping on the hood and scratching the paint, hence the need for repainting. Today, there are a couple of small dings on the trunk lid caused by screws that were too long for the interior lining of the lid. The driver's door later sustained paint damage due to a wasp nest discovered during its storage in the shed, where the nest was constructed between a plastic tarp and the door. The owner quickly applied surface treatment and paint, which is why there's a different shade in the middle of the door panel.

  • General condition:

    Affordable Amazon in a presentable and user-friendly condition, ready for use. A repaint of the driver's door with a spectrometer-measured color would make it even more presentable. On the other hand, the wasp nest story also provides a kind of amusing history and provenance.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
