The Appeal

Few classic cars do rugged, durable and stylish quite like Sweden’s Amazon. It’s no surprise that these cars are a common sight on classic car tours and rallies. 
Every Amazon is appealing but for many it’s all about this one, the 122S with the twin carburettor B18B engine. Smartly finished in dark green, it was restored in 2016 and has been garaged and sparingly used ever since. 
Recent work includes a service, replacement electric fuel pump and renovations to the rear suspension. The result is a car that is as stylish inside and out as it is usable and reliable. It is ready for use in Greece or could be exported to a new life overseas.
