A beautifully restored early Amazon with the B16 engine: it doesn’t get much more charming than this. This two-tone painted Amazon has been completely overhauled and is ready for new adventures. The most recent owner purchased the car almost thirty years ago and placed this Swede, after a few years of use, in his collection. But before we continue, let’s delve into the origins of the Amazon.

In 1956, Volvo introduced the Amazon, a completely new model, quite distinct from its predecessors. The design was appreciated from the very beginning, and the Amazon excelled in terms of safety. No wonder many people fell head over heels for this model.

Returning to this particular specimen: recently, among other things, the fuel pump, clutch, spark plugs, ignition, wiring, distributor cap, and much more were replaced. The carburetors and fuel tank were also cleaned. The ignition was adjusted, and the valves were set. In short: the engine runs wonderfully smooth and quiet. The four-speed gearbox also shifts very smoothly. The Amazon drives excellently, with a suspension that feels fresh together with a properly functioning steering system. As you can see, the Amazon is more than ready for the future.

Being a 1960 Amazon B16, makes it an early example. The B16 is not often seen and is sought after. The body has been given a new coat of paint, which has been expertly done. As a result the car looks revitalized. Chrome and lighting components are also fresh, and the colour-coded steel wheels, along with whitewall tyres, give the Amazon just the right look.

The interior has been completely renewed, with the seats providing excellent comfort. The fabric upholstery complement the dark blue paint beautifully. The light grey carpets also look fresh, and the dashboard, which is partially covered in black synthetic leather, appears neat and unblemished.

An Amazon that is not only suitable for enthusiasts who occasionally want to take a pleasurable ride, but also for people who don’t want to drive a modern, mundane car on a daily basis. The car comes with the necessary invoices and an original instruction booklet.
