r5 monaco
« on: 12:00, Mon 15 October 2012 »
sup all you r5 headdsss.

I got a monaco off a women who bought it brand new 23 years ago. It is in near perfect condition with no rust and extremely low miles.

Is there any money to be made on the monaco?

Feel like i am wasting it by driving it every day i am either going to put it in a garage or sell it. Will upload pics if anyone is interested.

She is a beaut though.

I have been told it is worth a bit.  It means a lot to me as well.
I originally intended to do a few things to it but never have. It is completely original and, at the moment, has only done     31 000 miles!
I'm tempted to put a cover over it and keep it.

I have heard you cab put the volvo turbo on it..
Don't really know a lot about it though.

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.

Believe it or not but that is my one lol.  I paid a bit more than 600 for it though..

Should have spoken to you about them before.

It is the 1.7. Really tempted to put it away for the winter.. or 5 years.

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....
