Jacques Coune Volvo 122S Amazon Convertible
7.8/10 rating (4 votes)

Description

Jacques Coune introduced his Amazon Cabriolet at the Autosalon, Brussels in January 1963. The Amazon was an ideal basis for a cabriolet conversion, it was a sporty car with two carburettors and was solidly built. Volvo supplied Coune with 4 new 122S vehicles and although they were aware of Coune?s plans to build the cabriolets, they didn't object or interfere with the projects at all.

Only four cabriolets were produced during 1963/1964 and today only two of these original cabriolets survived. Jacques had big plans for the Amazon Cabriolet and he was actually setting himself up for a production line of 5 cars a month, however in the following years he lost many of his specialist Italian workers who one by one returned to their homeland when the Italian economy improved.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
