Default 144 breaking in Gloucestershire.

Not mine so no PM's please! Call the number below.

Seen on a Facebook group and I have permission to share on here.

The ad says :

"Hi all.
I know it's not a 240 but does anyone need anything from this horror. Seats and propshaft have gone. The body is very rotten and the car does not run!! I'm in Gloucestershire. Cheers Tom 07775573888"

Looks to be some saveable panels on there and I'm sure plenty of other bits but sadly only the one picture.

No longer a 140 owner or I would have bought the whole thing and done a full stripdown of it!

Hope it helps someone out.

Interesting, for it MUST be at Volvo Mecca: look at the background. If I didn't know better I'd say the car next to the 144 was the Volvo 165 John H bought recently - but he hails from Huddersfield..... Therefore must be an early 245. Then behind them is what is probably another 144 or 244.
Whatever, it looks worse than my 144 spares car - but could be half OK under the bonnet.
Thanks for link C - please continue to keep those eyes peeled. Will see you again somewhere!

Popped over there this evening and had the dashboard, steering wheel, washer motor and carb off the poor thing - rusty to the point of suspension collapse!

Nice chap with 240 bits too.
