Lot 1931

Description:

1970 Volvo 131 Amazon 2-door saloon - two owners from new
Reg. no. HPX 950H
Chassis no. 351547
Engine no. 684
The Volvo Amazon was manufactured between 1956 and 1970 and it was offered in three model styles: two and four door saloons and a five door estate. By 1959 it became the first car featuring seat belts as standard equipment. The engines fitted to these cars are well known for their robustness and they are good for really high mileages. This Amazon is still fitted with its original B20 two litre engine, which has covered 130,500 miles; it also has only had two long-term owners from new, the first up to 63,000 miles and the second and current owner ever since. Originally our vendor used this car as regular transport but in recent years it has had little use and been part of a collection. It has never been restored but maintained and serviced. Said to start easily, the car runs and drives as it should. Our vendor even intends to drive the Amazon to the sale from Kent. It has a strong engine although there is a slight manifold exhaust blow (replacement with the car). The clutch was replaced at 101,000 miles and the brakes were overhauled at about the same time with new cylinders and most of the pipes. A stainless steel exhaust is currently fitted. The bodywork is sound and the paintwork is presentable. The interior is generally good but the red seats are faded. This good useable car is offered with a V5c, a current MOT that expires in March 2018, a handbook, the original service record, various receipts and a selection of old MOT certificates.
