1992 Volvo 480 Turbo Manual S/R For Sale

Post by jamesalx » Thu May 09, 2013 9:15 am

It is my pride and joy, but it's got to go, need to by a new "Family" car Volvo V70.

Good bits:
- It's a 480 turbo :)
- 66,676 miles on the clock
- MOT December 2013
- TAX Jan 2014
- Popup lights work great
- Dashboard all still working
- Heated front seats
- Electric windows
- Electric sunroof
- K reg 1992
- Manual gearbox and clutch seem fine
- Interior is in good condition
- Paintwork good for its age
- Door and sunroof seal all seem good
- Logbook and original documents
- All seems to be rust free
- Had a new battery fitted a couple of months ago

Front tyres could do with replacing at some point as they have some cracking in the tyre wall. The backing to the speedo has peeled a little and in the damp it curls up and can affect the speedo, but a quick bit of work with some super glue should fix it. Paint work is generally in good nick apart from the driver's side rear wheel arch, where a repair before I had it was done but not with quite the right pair colour. Has a non standard radio, but its not connected. The interior is good for its age.

Its generally a really nice car. There are only 24, 480 Turbo S/Rs (sun roof) on the road in the UK, and only 6 of the 1992 year! A definite collector's car.

It's located in London SE9.

On eBay starting price £400, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 1256627652

"My name's Jamesey, and I'm a paris-blue-aholic!"

*applause*

"It all started with a turbo automatic...."

Lol! :D

Seriously though, it does look like a very nice example, but WAY out of my price range.

Good luck with the sale though... Maybe you'll end up being Jamesey's "enabler!"

So I've obviously over estimated the going rate.

Id rather the car went to a forum member and not just put it on eBay where someone with a penchant for body kits and loud exhursts get hold of it. So £1500? Bargin. I'll have to list it on eBay tomorrow if no one is interested ;(

Good luck on e-bay. I think you're still asking far too much, but with e-bay you may get lucky, just not with anyone on this forum who knows what it's worth.

I've just got an S70 CD too...the Black Shark (black stone colour)...otherwise I would be bidding also!

The highest bidder on my V70R was just under 1300 quid...can't believe it...never mind I need the dry patch on the road underneath it more than I need the car

Good luck James you should see that go no problem

You are not asking too much. I recently sold a red auto turbo on ebay for £1020. Similar condition and miles to yours.

Thanks jamesy12345 and jamescarruthers good to hear, it's hard to price these cars as it's all down to what someone is willing to pay at that moment (hope that makes sense). Really want it to go to someone who will appreciate it.

Jamesy, The Black Shark is a great name. I need to come up with one for my V70, at the moment the wife is calling it The Sky Blue Bus :lol: It also sounds like that Dry Patch you just freed up could do with being filled with a Paris Blue 480 Turbo.... (enabler)

I have to agree that a grand start is indeed a grand start!
Knowing people on eBay, don't be surprised if you don't get a bid, people seem to be put off bidding on a high starting item but are willing to bid on a low start item with a reserve I find, it's really weird psychology!

I just had the same with my 460....low start price, no reserve....no interest! Heigh ho I'll keep it then. The local ice cream man wants to buy it but after some cross questioning he didn't know what engine was in it and mentioned something about being used to transport hay.....I just can't do it!!

The Black Shark is so named cos I passed the factory where they make the helicopter of the same name in Russia (Kamov KA-50, Arsenyev), and the S70 reminded me of them with the high back end, narrow body compared to length, sloping nose, etc. IMHO!
