1970 SAAB 96

    "Fixer" 96 available in San Diego.  All original with the exception of Weber carb.  Needs complete restoration or would make a great parts donor.  Clear title.  Lots of surface rust, interior is rough, signs of firewall seam rot - would be an ambitious restoration project.  However, rockers are very good as are floors, glass, wheels and bumpers.  Not running, so condition of engine and gearbox are unknown.

    There are lots of usable parts on this roller.  Somebody take her home and bring her back to life or put her bits to good use!


Asking $750 OBO

1973 SAAB 96

    I have a very rare 1973 SAAB 96 with the original V4 engine. I got this car from its original 83 year old owner. It was in his indoor storage for over 30 years, a true barn find! I began to fix it up with the intentions on having a very rare and unique car, however, its probably better suited for someone who knows SAAB'S. I got her running really good, however, it needs the clutch master cylinder to be rebuilt or bleed correctly. I tried to fiddle with it, but I just cant seem to get it to work correctly, so I think I'm gonna pass this on to someone else who can address it correctly and who has knowledge of classic SAAB's.

    I do have all the original paperwork, including all the service records dating back to 1973. It has 73,xxx miles documented original miles. The exterior is in decent shape, it looks to have been repainted 1 time with the original color. The paint is faded, but could probably buff out. There is a small dent on the driver lower fender and one on the right side lower trunk. The only rust is under the front windshield, which is apparently common for these cars, but the rest of the car is solid. The windshield has a small crack on the driver's side. The brakes work fine. The interior is in good shape. The front seats look to have been redone at one time and look great. The dash, floors, door panels, gauges are all in good shape. It needs a headliner. The car is complete and will make a good restoration project or you could fix the clutch issue and drive it as it is.

    I have lost interest in this project and have moved on to another project. I'm asking $3900 cash, but am open to an offer to the right person. This car is not drivable in its current state and will need to be towed. The car is on non-op status and i have the clean title in hand.  If you would like additional information, or need additional pictures, please give me a call.  I'm located in Southern California.

1973 SAAB 96

     I bought this car primarily because the body was so nice. My intention was to make it into an electric car.  I had done a Saab 96 electric conversion in the mid 1980's using SCR's and a 24 volt DC traction motor.  We pieced together several cars and transaxles to try it.  After cracking a few well worn ring and pinions I stopped doing that.  I bought this car to be a project to keep until I retired. I waited too long and can no longer do the work required. If you wanted to do a restoration this is the perfect starting point. There is minimal rust on this car. It is mostly on the edges with maybe 30 or so pock marks in other places. With care and time (and 4000 grit paper) you could touch this car up without needing a complete repaint. I think the grill will need to be painted and the left front fender has had a repair that probably was not re-galvanized and is showing rust.

     The engine will need work.  My customers kids took the car from the valley up to Mt. Bachelor without saying where they were going and the engine did not have enough anti-freeze. They heard a lot of noise when they started the car. The noise stopped so they drove home. They free-wheeled down the mountain but drove home the last 50 miles with the temperature in the red. My guess is that the starter broke the fins off the water pump. The least it will need is a pump, maybe gears, radiator rebuild, probably heater core rebuilt as well. There is a risk that something lost temper from the prolonged overheating. The owners decided against taking that risk so I bought it for the body.

     I put my last set of stored a long time in a cool dark place Michelins on this car. It has snows on the front and regular 165R15 Xs on the back. There are a few minor dings. The right rear fender mount has some bend in it that looks like an easy fix. The front seats are worn, the rear seat is good. It has the headrest frames but no headrest inserts.  It has a the stock jack and a marginal spare wheel with no tire.

     This car has a perfect dash and zero structural rust. If you are going to spend the time and effort on a serious job, this is the right body to start with. I think the left rear side passive reflector is the only part that is not there on this car.

Two Old Friends for Parts or Restoration
1965 SAAB 96   --   Iceberg Blue bullnose, unknown mileage.  Parked this car in 1982 because of a leaky water pump.  Ran great otherwise, with original 3-cylinder 2-stroke engine, operable freewheel and 3-speed transmission.  Interior was reupholstered in 1980 and is still intact.  Interior door panels have been stored indoors and are in great condition.  Still many good parts, including original jack, since the car has never been scavenged.  All glass intact with no cracks.  Looking to part with my old friend to someone who can use the parts.  Must be moved or it will be taken to the crusher.  $200 OBO
1967 SAAB 96   --   Canary Yellow, unknown mileage.  Purchased with a blown 3-cylinder engine, a good 3-cylinder engine is included with the car.   Second engine is sitting inside the car as are the triple carbs and intake from the original engine.  Started renovation over 30 years ago and ran out of funds and time, plus I had a girlfriend, enough said...  Fenders, grill and tail lights are removed but included.  Car has been garaged until last year.  Only driver seat, no passenger or rear seats.  Door panels fair.  Glass intact except right rear.  Could be a great project or parts car.  Must be moved or will be taken to the crusher and turned into a Hyundai, or worse.   $200 OBO
