But then he'd need to add power steering to an Amazon, which makes the process a whole lot bigger.

Here's a cheaper solution...remove emergency brake, and install this.

For the 1967 model year, the federal government mandated dual braking system via dual-reservoir master cylinder for vehicles.
Story goes that they assembled 122S longer than that. There was a assembly line in South Africa which continued to the year 1971.

I was told that the police could still order them until 1975.

Also, Volvo didn't start installing dual circuit brakes until the very end of the 1967 production for both the 122 and 1800 Volvos and only for the US market, so the majority of 1967 122 and 1800 Volvos had single circuit brakes.

For those few made in 1967, we affectionately call them half breeds as they have some of the 1968 features like the dual brake masters, but not all of the features.

I know this for a fact as we currently have 3 half breeds in our shop, 2 of them are 122 Volvos and the other is an 1800.
