VOLVO 480 TURBO AUTO *SPARES OR REPAIR* For Sale (1992)Very rare metallic grey 92J Volvo 480 1.7 Turbo Auto with only 80k miles.
MOT 23rd August 2014
Tax 31st May 2014
Recently bought as a project, but I now no longer have the time or space to complete it. There are a few things need sorting; I've listed the main issues below as best as I can, but I'm not a mechanic so I can't be 100% sure of everything. Please remember this is a 21 year old car with the usual wear and tear, so please don't expect perfection!!!
Good engine with very low mileage of under 80,000.
Excellent grey leather interior
Original alloy wheels
Info centre with trip computer/temp/fuel range etc.
Original Volvo radio/cassette
Air con and heated seats (air con probably needs re-gassed)
Long MOT and tax
Driver's window mechanism broken
Rear discs and pads need changed(brand new discs & pads supplied)
Rear wiper sometimes works...and sometimes doesn't!
Offside front wheel bearing a bit noisy
Fair bit of play in steering
Offside rear spring broken
Alternator belt worn (squeaks)
ABS light comes on at start-up, stays on for a wee while, then goes off.
Rear axle suspension spring bracket rusted
Bodywork needs tidying; rust to rear arches, front wings, door bottoms and underneath tailgate. Not rotten, just superficial.
No history unfortunately, but the mileage ties up with the readings at past MOTs
There's not many of these 480s left, and it really would be a shame to scrap it. There are plenty of good parts and an excellent interior on this car, so an enthusiast would get loads of spares from it, or if you are handy with a spanner and have the time, it would be a good running-project, especially with long MOT and tax.
Any questions, feel free to get in touch.
