The Volvo 480 Turbo is now a rare car as according to the web site - details above there only 43 examples of all 480 Turbo models currently licensed for road use in the UK.
This car is a genuine barn find having being stored in a farm building since 2010.
It was registered new in August 1991 by Bickets of Kilmarnock, the local Volvo dealer who sold it at 12 months old to a local lady. The lady kept it for 16 years until 2008 when it was bought by a local elderly collector.
The elderly collector used it for two years and then parked it in the barn on a local farm where it has remained until this year from where we collected it.
We transported it to Leeds and after fitting a new battery and replacing a fuse the car started without a problem.The engine sounds good and the car drives around our yard and even though the brakes are slightly binding they do stop the car.
We have examined the car and have found that it will require a small amount of welding on an outrigger as can be seen in the photos above.
The current genuine mileage is 69890 and the many invoices in the large history file confirms this.
We recommend that prospective buyers come and view the car in our Leeds showroom to ascertain its condition for themselves. Please ring to make an appointment to view.
The prices of examples of 1990's classic cars are rising very fast as more people want the cars from their youth that they could not afford when young.
When this Volvo 480 Turbo is restored it should turn out to be an excellent investment.
