No.361 Celebration for sale

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

No.361 Celebration for sale

Post by gentlegiant » Sat Nov 24, 2018 10:11 am

After owning two 480s for the last 10+ years the time has sadly come to move on to bigger, if not better things. So here it is:

480 Celebration in dark red/burgundy.
No.361.
Still a good runner - relatively low mileage for its age (110,000 miles)
Rusty bits round wheel arches and underneath back end which will need sorting out.
Otherwise all in good working order - pop-up lights fine, sidelights not cracked, back lights also fine. Interior very good condition.
Fairly recent cam belt change and 4 relatively new Goodyear tyres.
Comes with Thule roof rack and 2 Haynes manuals!
MOT lapsed end of September so currently SORN.
£500
Posting it on here first in the hope it might be snapped up by a fellow enthusiast who can give it the home it deserves!

Yes - it would need the rusty bits sorting to get through MOT... may get it done if no one is interested as is...
