The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to
1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International
Auto Show in April 1959.
The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well
as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model
configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo
provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including
the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this
step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts.
When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives
from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler,
German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the
two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e.,
within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began
its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series.
The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in
Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began
operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models,
359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of
them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.
