Pre-Production car for sale in Belgium

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.

But what would you do with it? If it can't be driven and enjoyed, and your not a museum, I do fail to see the point.
Didn't I also see that someone said it lacked a VIN so couldn't be legal anyway?

Absolutely!

Leaving aside the VIN query would you ever drive it? If not, then it is just a very expensive ornament...since I am not a museum, and I don't have somewhere to store it in the hope that in another few years it will be worth a further several thousand pounds AND a buyer is out there, I think I'll pass on this one (lovely as it does, of course, look...)
