The Volvo Amazon was introduced in the year 1957 and was produced until 1970. The model is officially known as the Volvo 120 series. The Volvo Amazon was designed by Volvo chief designer Jan Wilsgaard.
The Amazon became the second model in 1957 next to the Volvo PV 544 fastback model. Volvo hoped to increase international sales with the Amazon; that worked out positively. These very strong, reliable cars were fairly popular those days. The Amazon was a ideal family sedan and a very tough opponent in races and rallies due to it's legendary robustness and reliability. In the year 1962 a Amazon station car model was presented: the 220 series.
The "crown jewel" of the Amazon series is the 123 GT which was introduced in the year 1967. Volvo fitted a P 1800 S engine in a Amazon two-door coachwork and voilà the 123 GT was born! The GT was available with two engine cylinder capacities; 1778 cc. and 1990 cc. four cylinder engines with their respective power output of 96 and 100 bhp.
The 123 GT was equipped with a four speed manual gearbox combined with an overdrive (Laycock de Normanville), a sports steering wheel, fog lamps and a rev. counter on top of the dashboard.
Nowadays these cars are very much sought after for classic
rally participation.
