The Volvo Amazon was designed by Jan Wilsgaard and was introduced to the public on September 1, 1956, but delivery did not start until March 1957. It was intended as a successor to the popular Volvo PV444, but proved too expensive. The PV444 had a reputation as a cheap 'people's car' and was therefore replaced by an 'intermediate model', the PV544. In October 1965 the 'Favorit' appeared, a stripped-down version of the Amazon, which would eventually replace the PV544.
Passive safety was (and still is) a top priority at Volvo and the Amazon, along with the PV544, was one of the first cars to come standard with 3-point seat belts and a padded dashboard. The car is known for being very reliable and strong. Of the 297,000 units sold in Sweden, 35,000 are still registered and 15,000 are believed to be in daily use. Production ended in 1970 and the model was succeeded by the Volvo 140 series. From 1961, mechanical parts from the Amazon, such as engine, gearbox and axles, as well as the modified floorpan, were used for Volvo's sports model, the Volvo P1800.
Each reproduction is printed on FineArt Baryta, a paper with a high color depth, large color range and image sharpness. The use of barium sulphate in the premium inkjet coating provides the typical gloss that makes this paper a real eye-catcher. By using advanced printing techniques you can be sure that your reproduction will remain a beautiful work of art for many years to come.
After printing, the reproduction is glued onto a Dibond carrier. Dibond is a sheet material with a high-quality appearance that consists of two thin layers of aluminum with a synthetic layer in between. Due to the use of two layers of aluminum, the plate can never warp.
Every reproduction is supplied with a practical hanging system as standard, so that you can hang it immediately after delivery. Your reproduction will also be carefully packed to avoid unpleasant surprises upon delivery.
