47 of 50: Kimberly: 1966 Volvo 122 Amazon Wagon

The DT staffs spends a good portion of the day dreaming drinking the wagon flavored kool-aid, so of course we had to include a Volvo wagon on the list.  The Volvo 122 (aka Amazon) is one of those rock-steady-reliable platforms from our Swedish friends and it carried its 50s styling from introduction in 1956 to obsolesce in 1970.  That is an awfully long period of time for a car to look the same, especially in the hyperactive 50s/60s when most cars changed visually year-to-year, but the Volvo 122 didn't care.  Find this 1966 Volvo 122 Amazon wagon for sale in Houston, TX currently bidding on ebay for $8,100 with 3 days to go. Thanks to Lew B. for the tip!

This Volvo 122 Amazon wagon is a very nice example and the seller has owned this car for 20 years and includes a detailed history of this particular car.  He is (was?) also the owner of a vintage volvo shop that sells parts on ebay, so chances are good that this car has been maintained well over the years and sports many small but significant upgrades.

Definitely the most "well sorted" and nicest Amazon wagon we've seen for at least a year, so if you want one, better jump on it.
