Beautiful Amazon 1964

Famous Amazon ready to do battle again

Revealed following many years in storage after show-stopping career

Exactly a year after the death of its owner, Barry Unicombe, what’s probably one of the best-known Volvo 121 Amazon saloons in the UK is back on the road.

Barry’s wife, Sonia, has had the 1964 car put back into running condition by engineer and car restorer Dave Taylor who has spent many years taking basket cases to pristine show condition.

“I was introduced to Dave by a mutual friend because Dave was interested in taking on Barry’s Suzuki 1100 GSX-R, one of the other great loves in his motoring life along with his little Italian Capriolo that he also restored,” said Sonia.

“The Suzuki had not moved for 11 years before Barry died last August but over the winter Dave stripped and rebuilt it with the attention to detail that clearly showed he took the same approach as Barry. He was obviously the right person to work on our beloved Volvo.

“The Amazon was bought new by Barry’s father and the only surname that has appeared in the registration book is Unicombe. I am the current owner because I had to insure it to get it restored and MoT tested. After Dave’s work, it passed with no advises.”

Barry and Sonia moved to Sonia’s current home near Thruxton Circuit from Ninfield, East Sussex, nearly 20 years ago after Barry retired from the family Volvo repair business. The Amazon went into the garage under cover and hardly came out again. Dave Taylor eased it out with a winch and onto a low loader leaving the engine undisturbed until it had been checked over and serviced in Dave’s workshop.

Since then, attention to the brakes and some minor bodywork blemishes resulting from a minor accident on the way back from a show many years ago has brought the Volvo back to show-winning condition. In its show life with Barry and Sonia it won the Volvo national seven times.

“Barry and I stripped the car to a rolling shell for priming and a bare metal respray before we took it through a meticulous rebuild,” explains Sonia. “Dave was impressed with how well the car survived its life in storage. After its check over and the fitting of a new battery, the engine fired straight off. It’s testament to the love Barry literally poured into his work.

“I’m going to use the car very occasionally to keep it running but it will now be looking for a new owner. 

It deserves to be out there and seen again after so long under dust covers.”
