Sharing the same wheelbase as her predecessor the Volvo PV, the Volvo Amazon 130 was originally called the Amason – the ‘s’ in between symbolic of the fearsome Greek girl warriors. However German motorcycle maker Kreidler had already registered the name earlier and therefore forcing Volvo to change the name to Amazon.
Produced for nearly 14 years, this model that was first launched in 1956 also was the first to introduce the concept of seat belt as a standard option in 1959. By the time production ceased, this model that was available in 3 variants (2-door, 4-door and Estate) had over 680,000 cars on the roads.
