Default H reg 360glt

Just gauging interest in this. What would a good condition 1 owner 65k miles in black sell for? Suspect it's on a private plate

No mot, engine seized, might use the one I got from a 740 to get it going and mot it....Any ideas on value please?

Hi, is this yours and are you are thinking of selling it? If so, I could be interested!

The production of 360's stopped in 1989, so the last ones are commonly on F plates, and some G, the 340's continued for a bit longer to 1991, so to be a H reg, it was possibly late in being registered or sat about before being sold and registered. If it is on a private plate, it shouldn't make the car appear newer than it is......

What is the engine you have in the 740 as a potential donor? I have a good running B200E engine from a 360 GLT. With the seized engine as it is with no MOT it's not going to appeal to everyone, but prices appear to be rising for good clean models. If it is rust free, that is the biggest battle to overcome and will make it worth more. Has it been off the road for long, or has the MOT recently expired?

Pete

It's been garaged for 15 years, body is solid. It is not mine but I have first say when the family sort out what they want to do with it.

I have a B200f redblock from a 740, injection. I hope it is easy to swap and get it to work with the 360?

Just throwing ideas around, the B200f is going spare at the moment and I'm looking for money to get my project going again.

If space allows I might even run it myself...not too sure yet.

seized engine, no mot, it isnt going to be worth a lot.
Always something else wrong with it.
Id be looking at scrap value, maybe a little more cos you like them
Owners will probably be glad to have their garage back.

My thoughts, for what they're worth......It's all about condition. Rust free with a straight undamaged body and interior (bar perhaps a little cosmetic refurb) would make it valuable (relatively speaking). If so, keeping it stock (perhaps the engine will free off with care....or replace with similar) could turn it into a 2500++ car. One owner, low mileage, last of the line.....I can hear a dealer waxing lyrical about it already.

If not, then I guess it's in the 250-500 range as a parts car, rolling resto or drifter project.

Default Engine seized?

Are you certain it's seized? It might just be that the current owners don't know how to get it going - why not try dropping the belts off and hand cranking it? As for value - if you restore it no doubt you will spend twice what it's worth!

Agreed - the value is difficult when it's a non runner being sat for some time. I took on a similar 360 GLS project last year which had sat for 8 years and whilst the car is in excellent shape, it's needed a fair bit of recommissioning work and it had been for sale for well over a year before I bought it.

A H reg GLT sounds unusual as they'd phased out 360's by then, but stranger things have happened. As a non runner probably a few hundred, as transportation becomes an issue for most people. If it's rust free then it's well worth swapping engines!

Hi mate do you still have the Volvo?

If so how much and roughly where abouts is it so I can see cost of courier (that's if it has the siezed engine in and no mot)

Thanks Bernie
