Celebration For Sale

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.

Celebration For Sale

Post by jifflemon » Sat Mar 09, 2019 4:36 pm

Not mine, but have been contacted by a couple who are regrettably selling their 480.

In their words:

"I have the above model which a 1995 year and I have owned it for 18years , it is in a lovely burgundy colour with the body work in very good
condition.
The car has done 69000 miles and has just passed the MOT for another year.
For the last 18 years it has always been kept in a garage.
I am considering selling now and would like to know if anyone in your club would be interested to purchase, we are based in Essex."

They're looking in the region of £2k, but I think they're more concerned it go to someone who'll continue to love and care for it.

If you're interested and want their email address, drop me a message.

That looks a really nice example ! I can't add it to our fleet, but I'd like to add it to my list of Celebration details - can you find out the no of 480 and chassis no plee ?

That looks like a very good example - if both rear arches are as good as they look in the photos, likewise the rear lights, I think they are underselling at £2000.

Only thing I can see wrong is the spoiler has been replaced and needs painting to match - easy enough job.

I'll be killed for even looking at it😉 but do hope it finds a good home and we see it again...

Someone on here please take it!!
