FOR SALE - 4x Volvo 480 SE, Celebration, & GT models - North West England

Post by JDW1983 » Tue Jan 03, 2023 9:43 pm

Hello,

My father in law has recently passed, and he had 4x Volvo 480s in a lock-up in North West England near Burnley, UK.

1x 1995 480 Celebration in Black / Dark Grey c.110k miles
1x 1993 480 SE in Green / Blue c. 120k miles
1 x 1995 480 Celebration in White c. 50k miles
1 x 1994 480 GT in Green c. 150k miles

None have been started for a few years but were all running as I understand it. MOTs were last done between 2012 and 2014.

They were intended as retirement projects but unfortunately my father in law didn’t get to work on them before he passed.

If anyone is interested in buying one or all please get in touch.

Kind regards,
Jonathan

As James says, thank you for offering them here. Those are all rare cars, so your father in law certainly knew his 480s. I wonder if he was one of our members ?
I maintain registers for all of those models, so I would very much appreciate further details and will send you a pm regarding that.
We will be anxious to know if they are all successfully re-homed and put back on the road so please do keep us posted. We have a rescue group, currently with as many 480s as we can take, but I'd like to think we could help if it got to the point where any of them was threatened with being scrapped.

Hi Jonathan,

could you provide any photo's of the cars to show overall general condition and a guide on pricing if possible? it may help us help you to track down a new home, your father in law sounds like most of us on here, you don't often just own one 480....!

cheers - Fraser

Hi Jonathan,

To begin with, I’m sorry to hear of your loss. Are you open to viewings this week, even today perhaps? I’m free for a week or so and it sounds like a great opportunity to help you assess the overall condition of these vehicles and to potentially find some new owners for them!

Thank you in advance for sharing,

Adam

Hello Jonathan,

I'd be interested to take a look at the collection, and report back on here with photos for forum members.

I'm local (Blackburn) so could make myself available at reasonably short notice to fit in with your availability.

Regards
