Footnotes

  • With chassis number confirming original manufacture by Volvo in Sweden in 1964, this left-hand Amazon is eligible for both pre-1965 European and 1967 British Historic rally and race categories. The 2-door saloon was the subject of a back-to-bare-metal shell rebuild by Pip Carrotte as a purpose-built rally car in 1997.
    The specification includes DeCarbon shock-absorbers, heavy-duty front springs with increased ride height, M27 axle with 4.88:1 ratio and Salisbury lsd, M40 gearbox,
    B18 1786cc motor with lightened and balanced flywheel and AP competition clutch, balanced crankshaft, con-rods and Mahle pistons, Volvo K camshaft with 10.8mm lift, lightened cam-followers, steel timing gears, gas-flowed cylinder head with 10.6:1 compression ratio, bronze valve guides, double valve springs, 42mm inlet and 35mm exhaust valves in 214n stainless steel, 8mm head gasket, twin HS6 SU carbs with pressure regulator, red-top Bendix pumps and filters, Tony Law manifold and exhaust system, full rewire with all circuits fused and 55amp alternator.
    BFW 612B was campaigned successfully during the 1997 and 1998 seasons on HRCR Championship rallies, ranging from Welsh forest to Manx tarmac special stages, and took class wins on several Belgian tarmac events. Having proved to be immensely strong, totally reliable and surprisingly rapid, and following straightforward upgrading of certain mandatory safety equipment to comply with current MSA regulations, this clearly very well prepped stage car would be a most suitable contender for the newly launched HRCR Historic Rally Challenge series of one-day events. Whilst by adding some easy to source items to the interior, the car would comply with Historic Road Rallying regulations where it would be ultra-competitive for long-distance Continental or UK classics, such as Le Jog and the Rally of the Tests, as well as one-day road events.
    Included are photo-album recording build and prep, wiring diagram, FIA Appendix J Recognition Form 1408 for 122S, FIA Historic Vehicle Identity Form 97/2061, MSA Competition Car Logbook, previous MOTs to 2003, maintenance invoices 1997-2003, jack and wheel-brace. 5 further steel wheels and tyres would be available foc to buyer for collection from near junction 11 of M25.
