In 1956 Volvo launched one of its most successful model ranges, the "Amazon" series. Starting with the 121 and 122 models the Amazon range soon established itself as a comfortable, reliable and well built car which also introduced new levels of safety equipment. The range continued to expand from 1956 with numerous models including 121, 122, 122S, 122 (updated and designated B18), 131,133S, 133, 221/222 and finally in 1968 the 123GT "sports" version. Production of only the 2-door models of the Amazon continued until 1970

The 123GT is a special version of the 2 door chassis (130) with high compression B18B engine, M41 4 speed + overdrive transmission, fully reclining seats, front fog and driving lights, alternator, fender mounted mirrors on some models, special steering wheel, special dash with shelf and rev counter.

Production figures wasn't Volvo strongest point and it is believed that around 1500 were produced in 1967 and 1968 only...............Click here for more information...
