1968 Volvo Amazon 122S Barn Find for Restoration For Sale

LJA 73F is a non overdrive 122S and was sold by Cheshire Volvo dealers Hilltop Garages (Stockport) on April 1st 1968 and has had 1 owner from new. The Amazon was discovered in a locked garage in Devon following the recent passing of the owner and is complete with the original green log book, the current V5, some spare parts and a huge, huge history file of past invoices and MOT's most of which are from Devon where the owner relocated. The last MOT was carried out on May 31st 2007 at 41521 miles. When the dry, ventilated garage was unlocked, the Volvo had not turned a wheel in 13 years, but with a battery, fresh fuel, new oil, a new clutch slave cylinder, a new brake master cylinder and calipers, the old Amazon fired up and drove sweetly, (if a bit hesitantly) after 13 years dormant !! The engine is quiet, pulls well and the gearbox selection is tight and precise. The overall paint condition is good but here is some superficial corrosion to the door bottoms, boot lid and fixing pins for the horizontal bright work trims, but the car is solid and runs well. The brake servo could do with either overhauling or replacing and the carburettors need to be cleaned / overhauled as the linkage is loose. The interior is original and apart from a rip on the drivers seat, is in excellent condition. The very rare, original rubber mats front and rear are in excellent condition. Both sills have been replaced possibly just before the Amazon was laid up, as the welding is professional but remains unpainted. The body colour is 97 as stamped on the engine bay ID plate. The location of the Amazon is Bournemouth Dorset and national trailer delivery can be arranged.
