Re: CELEBRATION 403 - SOLD

The poor lady did not realise 480s and car washes do not make a great combo! Have sent you an email regarding badge.

Re: 480 spare parts (lots of)

I asked volvoman72 for some parts but he has stopped replying to me 😟 Very strange, I have always found him helpful. I think Nigel Poustie got some bits from him a couple of weeks ago I did order some parts from him and he was very nice on the phone. And said had post them on the Monday, it was Fri...

Sadly no. I have a shopping list and would be prepare to road trip for any offload of parts. I still need a carpet.

480cx last logged on in March a couple of days after the original post so I’m not confident. :(
Hi, try volvoman72@btconnect.com he may have one

Re: 480 spare parts (lots of)

After lockdown ends: Hi, I have a large number of spare parts collected over the years. There is probably the best part of a car in spares available. Parts from doors to wiring looms. Collection only. Any offer accepted on any part including just to collect for free. Max price of £15 will be accept...

Re: Here we go again...

The thing that puzzles me most about all these recent valuations/prices is where do they come from? Are they just fishing and hoping to catch someone? Is it guesswork? Or does the’trade’ know something we don’t. Anyway it is nice to see a rise in values for our wedges but as been said we do not wan...

Re: Here we go again...

Blimey! OK, it's not £8.5K, but even so - perhaps values are finally really going up...? Certainly I'd like to think the number of recent supportive articles in some of the classic car publications are helping, even if they are giving some people ridiculously inflated ideas. Hmmm... :) David I will...

Seller on eBay has a zero feedback profile for previous sales, but 6 or so other cars listed for sale..

I'm going to make an enquiry (I need a white car to complete my collection......... not!) and ask if he might take a cheeky offer (£4.67)
I dare you.

Re: Possible sale of Celebration 467

The sale to Martin (congrats), has foiled my grand plan of having two 480s without swmbo knowing. They are both burgundy N reg cars and because she does not look at cars too closely I had a chance she would not notice! Unlikely I know but you never know!!

Well, that was easy!

Tomorrow, Nilani is heading back across the Pennines to where she came from last year - yes, Martin is taking her back :D

Hopefully he'll continue to post on her progress...

Good luck with her Martin, D C has returned you a nice 480!

Re: Something a little different

I am currently using a 15 yr old rover 75 as my daily driver and to be honest with you I cannot fault it. Everything works as it should, very comfortable, and only 60k miles. But by god it’s BORING!!!

Re: Possible sale of Celebration 467

Thanks all! The "practical car" has now joined the fleet in the shape of a rather smart V50. Pics will follow when I am not on my phone... Ben - have no fear, I shall still be here as always. I am NOT going 480-less, having tried that before! Norm, I probably am mad but if I keep 4 cars they won't ...

Re: Now it's getting silly!

Wonder where the plaque went? Was it ever fitted? There seems to be no marks on dash in the usual place. Wonder if it's still in the car somewhere.

Re: Now it's getting silly!

£10k; Not exactly the best set of photos, Registration number not visible. Lower front spoiler missing. At least at KGF (did that £5k car ever sell?) you get a series of good photos and a video. I'd say the price is incredibly optimistic, but hey, it's a shop window and people are talking about it,...
