Volvo Amazon convertible

Volvo itself never built them. However, a small number of coachbuilders have made a limited number of convertibles. Personally, I think that is a pity on the one hand, but on the other hand it also makes them special. Read the story I wrote for Volvo Classic Magazine about my Amazon Cabrio hobby. I used to have two.


In the meantime, I have had to conclude that I have more projects than time. The red Amazon convertible has now been sold. The black one is a future total restoration.

There is a large number of self-build Volvo Amazon convertibles, where one conversion has succeeded better than the other.

As far as I know, there are six Amazon convertibles with Dutch registration. Four via import and two based on a Duett chassis (one of the two is still half a Duett). In addition, a conversion is in progress (at the bottom, no Dutch license plate yet).

Also electric?

Do you also want to convert your car (Volvo or another brand) to full electric? As a spin-off of my own EV conversion project I started EVcreate for 'enabling EV conversions'
