Save A Pretty Turbo - eBay

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.

I’m new to this! What is not right under the bonnet?
Just got my first 480 (August 2020)!

No problem :)
Mentioned in the listing is suspected head gasket:

All Original None Modified Interior, Exterior & Engine
Becoming Rare, Future Classics Compounded by it being a Turbo & Auto
Car Drivers Good with the exception of a misfire, suspected Headgasket However, Being a 8 Valve this is an easy Engine to work on & rectify

This Volvo has "Fair" condition bodywork for the age Bar the Expected Abrasions & Knocks, Specifically Both Bumpers
O/S Drivers Rear Arch Has Rust But Is Complete.
N/S Passengers Rear Arch Has Been Dented With Rust Also.
N/S Passengers Rear Inner Light Is Broken Further More There Is Damage Below Said Light - See Photos

. Alloys All Round - Missing Centre Caps
. Electric Windows - Working
. Electric Mirrors - Working
. Central Locking - Working
. Sunroof
. Half Leather/Cloth Heated Seats & Generally very good condition interior, including Trim
. Original Stereo
.Roof, Bonnet & Bumpers Free From Dents

I'd still choose this over the SUD, who is currently at £700+.

Hi all, I’m coming back to these cars so looking for a goodish example.
I will be trying to save this car if the bids don’t go mad to get me back into one. Used to have a J reg White Turbo 20 years ago.
Regretted selling it.

I missed out on this car, hoping someone else on here got it.
Has great potential.
