Lot Number:
Estimate: No Reserve
  • MoT Exempt
  • Chassis number: 45858
The Amazon was the car that largely introduced the rest of world beyond Scandinavia to Volvo, selling well across the globe. The model was in production from 1956 to 1970. The Amazon name was unofficial ‑ because a German motorcycle manufacturer had already used the title. So instead, Volvo started using a tri‑digit designation instead, beginning with the number one.

The nomenclature '121' designated the base model variant with a single carburettor and 66bhp. Estate variants joined the saloons in 1962. This 121 estate was registered in 1967 (although there is an error on the HPI check document which says it was registered in 1954)  and is fitted with the 1778cc B18 engine, justifiably renowned for its reliability and durability.

The car has 53,906 miles recorded on its odometer, although this isn't warranted. Five former keepers are recorded. There is no V5C, with the paperwork being largely limited to MoT certificates from 2003 and 2010.

The car drives well, with a particularly easy four-speed gearbox, fitted with overdrive. Cosmetically, the Volvo could do with some work to improve it, but seems solid and very usable.
