5k: Toyota Inside: 1968 Volvo Amazon Wagon 4X4

 The Volvo Amazon (called the 120 series outside of Sweden) was the more
practical, more upright but still cool older sibling of the P1800 sporty
car, to which it donated its engine, transmission, and suspension
options. The Amazon was available as a coupe, sedans or wagons — they are solidly built, fun to drive, look great and should
live forever…reminds us of a certain Toyota pickup of legend...what if…no…it couldn’t happen…no one would combine two of the most bulletproof cars on the planet in one homage to madness?  Find this 1968 Volvo Amazon 4X4 offered for $7,900 via craigslist. 

Someone put a 1968 Volvo Amazon Wagon body on top of a 1984 Toyota 4X4 chassis and the seller only  puts a few sentences of ALL CAPS with limited details.  Who built this?  Why?  How? 

Under the hood is a Toyota 22R engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.  The Toyota light truck engine won’t be much of an upgrade over the Volvo B-series engine, but it should be better on fuel and even more bullet proof.

The cabin still looks like a Volvo Amazon, and you won’t be able to tell it is mounted on a Toyota Truck chassis until you look out the windows or attempt a low speed turning maneuver.
