MCV 23F

Volvo Amazon 123 GT (2000cc)

 

We purchased this ex-rally car in 2013 from a retiring Rally gent at Gantspeed Porsche. He bought the car post a full nut and bolt restoration only to then turn it in to a stage rally car. MCV 23F is one of only 49 RHD UK registered GT cars. We purchased it with fibreglass bonnet and little interior but changed back to original wherever possible.

 

We then sought professional guidance from Rob & Emma at Amazon Cars Edurance Rally Specialists.

Amazon Cars - Rally Prep SpecialistAmazon carried out many upgrades and enhancements. Reliabilily and strength being the key focus.

 

Re-built the B20 engine.

Two stage mapping(timing) to allow for the expected poor fuel in Mongolia.

Upgraded shock absorbers with Safari springs

 

In board fuel and brake pipes with bespoke fuel tank.

Retained the original roll cage.

Wheels changed to period steels which can be repaired, by us!!

We've removed the oil cooler and electric fan to keep things standard and reduce the risk of any failures.

 

We looked at weight saving wherever possible, we purchased some really nice RS Focus seats but were promptly told "no way, too heavy - ebay 'em"!

Other than the odd bit of sound proofing MCV 23F is a great standard car.

 

Thank you Rob & Emma and all the team at Amazon - especially for the training day!
