Volvo Amazon 1965 for sale
The Volvo Amazon was in production from 1956-1970 and there were many variations. The engine alternatives were in the beginning B16 and then later the successful B18 and last the B20. These last two engines are known to be the toughest engines in the world.
Exterior: There is no other colour that suits the Amazon as well as black (19). It really makes all that chrome stand out. And, the chrome details on this car are in excellent condition, as well as the paint. The bumper guards have been removed for a wider sleeker look. But they come along with the car. It has also a sport suspension that makes the ride height slightly lower than original. Underneath this car was cleaned and the entire front and rear suspension was dismantled, all parts were sandblasted and painted and new bushings were fitted. There was never any rust on this car. We can not even find that it has been welded anywhere underneath.
Interior: Here the car is in very good and original condition. Still wearing original seat covers in very nice condition. Good headliner and all instruments work as they should. There is a new dashboard fitted recently and a textile carpet. It has seat belts also for the passengers in the back.
Engine: The engine fitted is a B20 for better power, and with this there is a Weber carburettor. It has a little bit more free exhaust system that gives it a very nice sound without being loud. The delivery of the power goes through a gearbox M41 J-type with overdrive. And, this makes the car wonderful to drive even on longer stretches or if you need to go on the highway. You are now cruising along in 110-120km/hr with ease.
History: This car was living its early life in one of the districts in Sweden where they did not use any salt on the road’s wintertime. The car was repainted by previous owner in 2012 and has never needed anything but regular maintenance. All bushing and joints in the front and rear were replaced in 2017. We also have the original engine and gearbox.
Sorry, but this car is already SOLD. Contact inforamation is disabled for sold cars.
Classix by Schiebler is a company offering classic automobiles and sports cars for sale in Sweden. We are conveniently located just 30 km north of Malmö along the E6 highway. However, we have noticed that our customers come from all over the world, and we are only 40 minutes away from Copenhagen airport. We have sold cars manufactured by Mercedes, Porsche, VW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volvo, SAAB, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar and many more. Personally, we like GT or "Grand Touring" cars best, but we also offer convertible cars, limousines and coupes. We have spent a considerable amount of time on this website to ensure that you as a customer know what you are about to buy, and we hope you will enjoy it, and find something to your liking. I think everyone in the classic car market has experienced the frustration of spending a lot of time and money to go and see cars advertised, and they were nowhere close to what the sellers have told you. A lot of time and money wasted for both parties! For this reason, we always display a minimum of 20 high resolution images, detailed description and a video of the classic cars and sportscars we are selling.
The small town Löddeköpinge, is well known in Sweden. Here, we have the biggest gathering of vintage automobiles and motorcycles in Sweden every Tuesday evening. There could be more than 500 classic cars if the weather permits. American muscle cars are popular in Sweden but we also have many well-maintained and restored European classics coming to this event. In Löddeköpinge, there are also many workshops if you are in need of any repair.
Michael Schiebler has been working many years with classic cars and now a new classic car dealer is evolving here in Sweden under the same roof. Melvin is focusing more on the youngtimer cars such as sports cars from the eighties and nineties. On the picture we are working together as members of the jury during Classic Days Schloss Dyck in Germany. Judging the Concours d´Elegance seeing so many beautiful automobiles in this castle environment was a great experience. We also do appraisal work for the Swedish Chamber of commerce with classic cars as specialty.
