Shit! no way!  :D
 I was down the Red Lion and yours came up in conversation. I was told it was bought for 600 by one of the lads from Stag Hill motors.
 Thought it was too bloody cheap! stunning nick  8)
As I say,although they are the same block, the Volvo turbo is very different. An engine change would be the way forward, but yours is far too nice to bugger up! I'm off to Ash's at the weekend to pick up some bits,to get the F7P tha'ts down the side of the house fitted over the winter....

is it a 1.4 or 1.7?

Don't want to disappoint you, but they fetch about a third of the price of a Turbo.Though with that low mileage, it's quite a special one.

I paid 150 quid for my 1.7 donor and my next door but one neighbor, paid 600 for his near concourse one.( Jammy sod!)  :D

About the only thing the Volvo 480 Turbo shares with the 1.7 na Renault lump, is the block.

Hmm, I'm the same. Mk1 escorts,Mk2 escorts,cortinas,granadas,capris..
 The real 2 standouts I got shot of for peanuts were a MK2, RS 2000 with  a factory Ford X pack bodykit (chopped in in for an Astra GTE and gave the bugger cash his way  :( ) And a Mk3 Cortina 2litre GT in black, that I scrapped for 25 when the engine died.....

If you get over to retrorides forum, you'll find stacks of people who have stretch tyres and there is  quite a few who band steels. They'd love the 480!

What do those big wheels and tyres do to the handling?

Should be worth a couple of hundred quid.
I sold my engine (condition unknown) for 50 and have just bought 2 F7P lumps for a ton.

Are they cut Springs? Only ask as mine had been 'lowered' when I got it and the top of the springs flopped about like you'd never believe as they didn't sit in the top cup properly.
Lovin the whole look of the car btw  :D

Suprised at the transmission. Can a Renault 11 gearbox cope with that kind of power?

Try Tom, at Simply Automotive in Sussex. He often has a few shells. :wink:
