1.9 Carb 1985 Volvo 360 GLS - Bought on 16/11/2014 5.30PM

Post by zack360 » 17 Nov 2014 01:55 pm

Hello guys..I don't know why i did it, but i successfully did it..bought for RM2500 or 477GBP or 597 EUR. I did post this car before on the other thread , went to check it back and it's still there.. I thought this is the best car that i ever bought. I want to built this car for speed and performance. Is this model better than GLT? it's 1.9 not familiar with carburetor engine though..but it think there is something fishy about this car..is this a good buy guys?? Hit me with comments please..

Looks a bit ruff, but a good clean up should make it better. I think that you are going to find some rustspots looking at the frond grill and sunroof.

The gold emblems are original for Malasysia.

Love the "5 speed" decal :-) I'm sure it'll look a lot better after a good clean.

Does it have air conditioning? Looks like a filter/drier in the engine bay. Wow!

Took some video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bxe0aDdqZ4I

Why there is limitation when I want to log in? What is the maximum log in attempt. Yes it's rare. Will stick to standard setup just add bolt on turbo.

Man, that is an awesome video and an evil car - I envy you. I'll be like you when I grow up. The login problem comes and goes whether you use the recovery code or not. I thought it must be the North Korean secret service trying to take down the picture of Kim Jong-Un I liked to here...

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15775&p=183196&hili ... ay#p183196

... but sometimes it won't let me in when I'm on the phone but it works fine from the laptop, so its probably something completely sporadic and random.

I always use blackberry Q5 when I log in to this forum. Really nice device, most of the picture and video I took with it. I'm planning to clean all the moss is it moss joris? It has air conditioning trabitom. Hell driver, I need to test drive this evil first, before turbo upgrade, since this is my project car, maybe a minor modifications. Let's clean the car first and get rid of the rust. Rust in Peace.

Hello all, i need your 2 cent on this vehicle. Is it worth it to use 1JZ for engine upgrade. Sure it will lost it's original attribute. IJZ engine is quite common here (lot's of cheap japanese half cut here :D ) and should i go for turbo or N/A.

I guess it's not suitable to mix Japanese and Continental car in this forum..ok..this car model is B15A. What does that mean? Do you familiar with this model?

Thanks

Doubt a 1jz would fit tbh and there would be no point unless it was a 1JZ-GTE but then you would have even more trouble fitting in the twin turbos especially around the steering column.

By B15A do you mean the 360 has a B19A engine? If so it's the early version of the redblocks and is still a 1986cc engine like the B200 but it isn't a low friction engine, compression is 8.5:1 and it runs a carb so only produces 90hp... Pretty much ready for a turbo :lol:

Do it! If you can get the parts and know what to do, why wouldn't you do it. Should be nice to see something different.
But your biggest concern I think, is rust.

I couldn't locate the engine code on the block..i don't think there is a B15A engine right? A friend suggest for SR engine..much smaller 4 cylinder and more torque. I have to send it to body repair shop for rust treatment. Thanks for the suggestion joris. Is there any 360 with japanese engine in this forum? i would like to know how he did it..
