Volvo 122S Amazon Polis Text (1969)

In 1956 Volvo launched one of its most successful model ranges, the "Amazon" series. Starting with the 121 and 122 models the Amazon range soon established itself as a comfortable, reliable and well built car which also introduced new levels of safety equipment, still very much a novelty in the mid-50's!

The first of the Amazon cars to arrive in Britain was the 122S, essentially a twin-carb version of the 121. The 122S had a 85bhp, 1583cc four cylinder engine coupled to a four-speed gearbox. Less sophisticated features included a six volt electric system and drum brakes.
