Tow bar & Electrics for Free!

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Tow bar & Electrics for Free!

Post by Martin Mc » Sat Dec 15, 2018 2:07 pm

Hello fellow 480 enthusiasts,

Just clearing out my garage in anticipation of a house move early in the new year and I've come across the tow bar & Electrics I acquired 3 years ago when restoring my last 480.

Now you know and I know that I WILL be getting another 480 at some point in the future, but I don't think it will be for the foreseeable, so I was wondering whether anyone would like an early Xmas pressie for their car? All you need to do is either pick it up or arrange a courier.

Everything is there to fit it - bolts, spacers, nuts, plates and washers. The bar itself is undamaged and the electrics, although untested, appear complete.

Please p.m. me if you are interested. I will post photos later today - am typing this on my phone.

Merry Christmas to all!

Martin

Hello there and thanks to everyone who has viewed the thread - I've agreed a destination for the towbar, and am very happy that it will be gracing an enthusiasts car in years to come.

Thanks again!

:lol: it's coming to me Alan and going onto the 480 that you previously expressed a wish to have first refusal on in due course...
