87' 360 GLT Saloon

Post by mountaindewing » 27 Apr 2015 07:51 pm

Im new on here, I just bought a 360 GLT saloon with 65000 on the clock and drove it 150 miles back home yesterday, didn't miss a beat, only o/s/f wheel bearing just starting to go, so will be getting one and replacing it soon.

Just in the process of getting a quote for the little bits of rust on the body which is to be expected on a car of this age and a previous owner has tried to roll the arches and managed to crack the paint on them causing surface rust, but not too bad over all, needs tiny little bits of rust sorting but the main parts are all solid.

Plan is to get the body work sorted, and then swap in a B230FK, and have some fun so I'm on the hunt for a donor car if anybody can help Midlands and below would be ideal!

Hope you like it! :360: :mrgreen:

Nice saloon, should it not have spoilers front and rear, or are there holes in the boot?

Tidy base of a car - I remember it for sale here when it was standard, I hope it's possible to revert some of the 'mods' the previous owners did - not much of a fan of rolled arches/bent wings. Where abouts in the Midlands are you? The turbo swap is definitely the way forward :)

I'm looking for a B200e engine to replace or repair the one in my 360GLT - so if you're looking to sell it I'd be very interested.

If you want an upgrade I have a nice B230 engine that would bolt in
