Thorsday on Tuesday: 1966 Amazon 122S Coupe

Introduced in the U.S. as the 122S in 1959, the Amazon showcased Volvo’s commitment to safety, becoming the world’s first car with standard front seat belts and later featuring the pioneering three-point seat belts. Boasting a sleek ponton styling, the Amazon was available in various body styles, including two-door and four-door sedans, along with a distinctive five-door wagon. With its origins in Greek mythology and an initial spelling hiccup due to trademark constraints, the Volvo Amazon left a lasting legacy with over 667,000 vehicles produced, offering a range of features from the powerful B18 engine to gearbox options like the M41 with four-speed and overdrive. Find this 1966 Amazon 122S Coupe offered for $10,750 or best-offer located in San Mateo, CA via ebay motors. Tip from Zach.

From the seller:

This is a nice, rust free California car. Made in 1966, they do not make them like this anymore! This has the legendary B18 motor (rebuilt), and has fairly new brakes, Weber, fuel pump, shocks/bushings, clutch, and tires. The car had the gas tank replaced, alomg with the suspension springs. The car was repainted with the factor colors (Ruby Red, code 46, and Grey Beige (code 65). The heater does not seem to work. The stock 4 speed transmission is a bit noisy, and should probably be rebuilt.The rubber around the windows need replacement. Trunk support is not working. Car runs well, I drove it from the Bay Are to San Diege, with no problems. While not a show car, it has “good bones”, and has a ton of potantial. Odometer shows approx 45k.
