K Plate 480 1.7 Manual 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.

K Plate 480 1.7 Manual For Sale

Post by 480cx » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:41 am

With the latest advice RE COVID-19
After lockdown ends:

Probably best for spares.
It's white, needs a windscreen, a clutch, may be missing a few small bits under the bonnet such as pcb breather.
Arches need repairing. Roof has a few ripples from kids having climbed the car and from a few bits being stored on top. (Weirdly I have a spare roof also...not sure if dented itself but you can have it)
Tyres are flat...will try to get them pumped up.
Mostly all there.
Would much prefer it to be saved or used as spares to keep other 480s going than to just scrap.
When I had it I preferred it to drive over the turbo.
Interior was nice on it.


£150 or offers (no offence will be taken at low offers as it has to go.)
Quick removal prioritized.
Located near Middlesbrough.

(There is also a mass of spare parts available from doors to wiring to most of an engine. Close to a full car in spares.
Max price £15 for any item.
If someone has storage I'm willing to donate all spares to the club as 1 lot otherwise it may all have to be scrapped.)

Sadly it sounds as if it needs to join the other spare parts :cryhard:

How much pressure is there to get the car and parts moved?

Not a red one that sits in the street with a baby seat in the back is it?

Hi,

I have no capacity for a whole car sadly - but if there is a good condition passenger compartment fitted carpet with decent footwells going spare, i'd happily make the journey up north (lock down allowing :cry: ).

If so, give us the nod and i'll transfer over to a PM with my mobile number.

Many thanks.

Jay.

Hi,

Is there any chance you could post some photos of the vehicle ? , i'm interested in the seats if they are in good condition , the front fabric seat foam on my White 1990 Turbo seats have turned to dust....

I have space to take the whole car for spare and i may also be able to sort someone to pick it up and deliver

thanks
