Re: New to V3M but not to Volvo's

I bought an original condition 17,000 mile 360 in 2009 for £1200. Felt like a lot then, but not now. The car you are looking at looks very nice, you have to weigh up the cost of the cam belt it's had done, exhaust and other things etc. I had an a stainless exhaust fitted at the same place in Doncast...

Re: '86 340 DL

Photos are fine, looks to be in great shape. I drove a C.V.T. for 10 years, yes, not to everyone's taste. I always wanted a manual but the car had been in the family since 1977 so I kept it running! Now have all manuals, 340, 360 and a 740.

Re: JAK 74W

Epic work - not seen you here for a while. Might have not signed in a few times, I was away most of December and not been doing anything with the cars over winter. Quiet on here I expect due to Facebook, pity as the forum is actually a better way to record things. I've been sorting out a non workin...

Re: Gold 360 GLS XKW

The awesomeness lives on. Currently awaiting repair panels for mine to get it through the MOT. The poor garage man has been saying "Its getting very rusty now, Mr Cooper" with that familiar ring to it. Have you seen a 440 lately? I've not seen one for a good 2-3 years round here. I see more 340's. ...

Re: G89 VFW (Project) Time for some TLC

Just a quick update. VFW still exists, although off the road for the last 4 1/2 years (dry stored but dusty! :D ). I check it every so often and started it before Christmas 2018. It needed a new fuel pipe to the pump as the rubber had perished and petrol was dripping out. Unfortunately I'm coming un...

Re: Gold 360 GLS XKW

Just to add further confusion, I'll update the history of this car late again! In 2014, I failed to get the M.O.T. in time for the annual caravan trip so VFW was brought out of mothballs. XKW had failed on a small rust patch on the O/S sill by the rear wheel and neither I nor the garage had time to ...

Re: 4k mile 343 manual

Hi Andy. Must keep that in mind mate as my spare wheel is 34 years old and has never been on the road. Cheers Mark. sm69 sm69 sm69 sm69 sm69 sm69 sm69 sm69 I recently changed the wheels on my gold GLS back to the ones that came on it. A few years ago I'd put on some alloys I bought from Theo in Cor...

Re: 4k mile 343 manual

Amazing condition, I would keep the wheels and tyres (but not use them on the road!) and get some more shot blasted, sprayed up with new tyres on. If you intend to use it much the paint on those those wheels soon lets rust in! I did that with my 360 which was in similar condition and year but at 17,...

Re: MCHUDDS 1983 360 GLS (Louvre and Spoiler Content)

Hi all. Auto windscreen in Belfast could only find two replacement screens in the whole of UK and Ireland. One with a tint and one clear. I bought what I was told was the last new non-tinted screen in National Windscreens own warehouses a couple of years ago. I had already bought quite a few non-ti...

Re: [AgA] Volvo 340GL - Possible Project

That's looking good now. The wheels look good, are they 13 inch? I've got some but not on a car yet! I was wondering what they looked like.

Re: '85 360 GLS

Is it definitely the jets getting blocked? I never actually was sure what caused my problem with the green GLS, the filter on the tank inlet was certainly badly messed up with gunk which was also preventing the fuel sender from working. Although by the time I changed it, the car never did the fuel s...
