Classic Driver: 1967 Volvo 122S Amazon

I may have been spending too much time with CFlo, because I am starting to appreciate (and like) classic Volvos like the 122/122S/Amazon.  The simple truth is that these funky little Swedish sedans are cheap to buy, drive, and maintain.  What else can you ask for in a classic?  Find this 1967 Volvo 122S Amazon offered for $4,000 in Escondido, CA via craigslist.

You won't be overwhelmed with V8 torque or an open air experience, but the Amazon combines a 118 horsepower inline-4 with a decently well built chassis that feels like a fast car from the 50s, even though it was built in the late 60s.  Does that sound like your idea of fun?

See another cheap classic? Send it here:


  1. Here is another one (4 door) with more of a street fighter style to it. Same price.
    These are really great looking car. Engine swap would be a must for me.

    1. As in the B20 swap, or did you mean something farther from the tree? I would be up for a period and marque correct swap, but nothing else. If I choose to drive a Volvo 122, I want to drive a Volvo 122. Just my opinion.

  2. Just saw this on speedhunters,
    I would be much more into this type of build than stock
