The 122 S was the performance model of Volvo's 120 (Amazon) Series of cars designed in-house by Jan Wilsgaard and introduced in 1956. Unlike the slant-backed PV444/544, the newcomer was a modern-looking three-box design. Power came from a new OHV in-house unit initially of 1.4-litres, but increased to 1.6, 1.8 and eventually 2.0-litre capacity over the model's 14-year lifespan. Suspension was independent at the front and by live axle, torque arms and coil springs at the rear. Braking was initially by drums all-round with discs becoming standard at the front from 1964.
This very original-looking righthand drive 122 S is finished in light Blue and trimmed in Cream. It displays an unwarranted total mileage of just 32,159 and is regarded by the vendor as 'very good' in relation to its four-door bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, 1.8-litre engine and four-speed manual gearbox. Offered with history file which includes a parts list, old MoT's and a collection invoices from marque specialist Amazon cars we are informed that in 2013 a new clutch was fitted and serviced in 2011. 'NFB 743' comes complete with an Irish test certificate valid to May 13 next year.
