Volvo Amazon 122 S
1964 Volvo Amazon 122 S P130 1.8 Manual finished in Cherry Red with grey cloth interior. The odometer shows 4766km but this will certainly have rolled over given the age of the vehicle, so exact mileage is unknown. Chassis number is 59078. The car appears to have had just 5 owners in it’s near 60 year life.
The first recorded ownership is listed 1967. The car was sold to a gentlemen in Sala, by Erland Rohlins Bil AB, and this original ownership document along with the owners manual is present. Incredibly it remained with the same owner some 29 years until 1998 when it was sold to another gentleman also living in Sala. This gentlemen kept the car for 10 years before another gentlemen acquired it in 2008, living in Alby at the time. This owner kept extensive records of invoices, work carried out along with a wealth of background information on the Amazon during his tenure which are all found in a neatly kept folder, along with the aforementioned original documents from 1967 which are clearly wonderful items for an enthusiastic collector to inherit with the car.
The current owner is a reputable collector in Stockholm with a number of quality classics in his ownership and a full time mechanic employed to take good care of them. The car looks fantastic in the flesh, with a number of parts replaced over the years, a truly beautiful vehicle to cherish and enjoy, or add to a collection and potentially benefit from the appreciation curve these cars are clearly on.
