sold the 360 in late 90s i currently own an S60 D5 which is my 9 volvo over the years...
But i would like another 360glt which are very thin on the ground,ive seen odd one or two over the last few months for sale...
So i did google search and your forum came up so i joined......

I have my own forum(just started) and group on facbook for swedish cars saab & volvo......but nothing beats the look of a 360

Glad you like the 300 series. Epic photo. I think it was actually a dutch car, designed by DAF and then bought by volvo.

1991 340 1.7 GL, 64k, 5 door, petrol blue (Deep Blue).
1988 360 2.0 GLE, 140k, 5 door, ocean blue metallic (Blue Bess).
1989 340 1.7 GL, 108k, 3 door (Red Ness).

Once you get a 300 you will never escape them :lol:

I always thought it would be easier to take the engine out for a clutch change, never had to do one myself but it beats removing half shafts especially now they are probably rusty and likely to round off.

Have a look on www.carandclassic.co.uk they seem to come up on there more often that ebay.

Great looking GLT! An S60 makes for a great daily driver, I suspect after selling my D5 last year the obvious choice is to simply just get another one :lol:
1989 - Volvo 360 GLT
1985 - Volvo 360 GLS
2008 - Volvo S60 SE Lux
