THE VOLVO 122S

Introduced in 1956, the Volvo 120 Series lasted in production until 1970, by which time around half a million had been built, its build quality, toughness, and longevity helping to establish the Swedish company's reputation worldwide. Marketed in Sweden as the 'Amazon', the original 121 four-door saloon was joined by two-door (131) and estate (221) models in the 1960s. Originally of 1.6 litres capacity, the overhead-valve four-cylinder engine would grow first to 1.8 and, finally, 2.0 litres. The Amazon was also the first car to feature modern seatbelts as standard, a safety revolution at the time.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

One of the most stylish vehicles to exit the Gothenburg plant, the Volvo 122S on offer has great potential to be returned back to wonderful condition. The bodywork displays a bulk of the cars age with surface corrosion visible around various point of the car. However, the panel fitment is overall good, and the doors, hood, and trunk all close satisfactorily. Under the hood, the B18 sits with its multitude of accessories including a coil, distributor, manifolds and carburetor. The spartan interior, much like the engine bay, is largely complete, with a lack of carpets being the major lacking detail.

A nice compliment to the SAAB 96 also on offer, for those looking to recreate a stage of the Swedish rally championship from the late 1960s, look no further. The 122S is a robust car that once sorted out should be a dependable runner for its next owner. Further sweetening the deal is a nice dose of subdued Nordic design that will charm any passerby.
