SOLD!    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.

SOLD!  1971 SAAB 96

The car is complete.  I started the restoration but stopped because of health issues. The body is in good shape. There is some rust on the bottom edge of the driver’s door. The interior has a small tear in the drivers seat, otherwise in excellent unrestored condition.  The front fenders have been replaced with NOS parts.  The engine was rebuilt but not painted.  It has a new clutch and pressure plate as well.  The exhaust is sound.  I was able to find a NOS dumbbell front muffler and the back section was replaced just before the original owner took it off the road.  It needs new brake lines and brakes. The lines broke when I started taking them apart.   Includes a parts car that has good glass and body panels. Buyer responsible for transportation.

SOLD!  1967 SAAB 96 V4

First year for 4-stroke V4 engine.   I've had this car 6 years and have been using it as a daily driver during spring-to-fall months here in Illinois.  Starts good, runs good, drives good.  Everything works except the clock and it's all there, nothing missing (the "chrome" strips along the side, however, are plastic, not metal). 

Appearance wise, well....it's a 47 year old "survivor" and people seem to like it like it is.  At some time in the past it was clear coated and that is peeling off.  Paint bubbles are showing up in original paint.  Seat upholstery not original but in good condition, as are floor mats.  Floor wise, it has the original floors.  There was rust along the sides and I patched that with a sheet metal/Fiberglas "sandwich" ...galvanized metal on top and underneath with a layer of Fiberglas cloth between.  This can be seen in the photos of the bare front floor.  Has worked well.  The trunk floor is all original, no rust there.  Car has Simons Sportsystem exhaust and a Weber carb.

I've enjoyed the car and hate to sell it, but it's time to reduce my fleet of vehicles.  Have clear title.  Email or call with any questions, can take additional photos.  Buy it, drive it home and enjoy it as it is...or restore it to new if you want.

SOLD! 1965 SAAB 96   (reduced!)

  As reported in the 1 May 2000 Swedish-American newspaper “Vestkusten”,  in 1965 Gunnel Engquist (now Weiner) took the train from Goteborg to Trollhattan  and ordered her first car from the Saab factory – a 1965 Saab 96.  The car was immediately shipped to New York where it cleared customs (as the non-taxed personal possession of an immigrant) and shortly thereafter Gunnel drove it to Los Angeles.  Since then, the 96 has been a family member – always registered, garaged/carported, and regularly driven (only) in California by Gunnel or husband Mike.

  We call it “TED” because of its original black CA license.  TED has been regularly serviced and maintained for decades by Bud Clark in Orange, CA.  Perhaps 20-years ago he installed metal CV joints to replace the rubber joints and front disc brakes to replace the drums, along with an improved exhaust system.  Other small improvements to the stock 2-stroke motor include an electric fuel pump.  We also have stronger seats with the open head-rests.  The odometer says 7,000 miles – but it should show 107,000-miles – and Bud has rebuilt the crankshaft less than 20,000 miles ago.

  We went for about a 50-mile drive today , Feb. 19th.  The car runs good.  However, Bud Clark says that the main bearings are “growling” a bit.  The tranny/clutch/freewheel work fine.  Everything works, but the aftermarket radio/speakers aren’t so good.  The tires are old (checked)  and I would replace them before any really long trips.

  There is some surface rust on the rear bumper and some of the chrome – but that is about all.  The car has been repainted the original Polar White – and the finish is in quite good condition.  The interior is good, and could easily be made beautiful with new seat-covers, floor-mats, a steering-wheel wrap, and improvements to the weather-stripping and piping.  Photo album at  http://picturetrail.com/22mike22

  We visited the Saab Museum in Trollhattan perhaps 15-years ago.  On display was a ‘64/65 Model 96.  We were pleased to see that TED looked better! 

  The original Owners Manual and Service Book , a factory Shop Manual, and a factory Parts Book are included, along with original documents, the Vestkusten newspaper article, original tools and jack, several quarts of Torq-O synthetic two-stroke oil, and some spare parts.

  Why would we be willing to part with a family member after all of these years?  We are getting a bit old to do the small things to keep TED in top shape, and it would feel great to see him in the next enthusiasts garage for the next 45 years or so!  We also have two other Saabs to keep running as our daily-drivers.

SOLD! 1959 SAAB 93B

   This was the first car I bought, and then drove, my last year in high school. As often happens when young, my initial sighting of that unusually sleek body had me very much attracted!

   Off we went together to college, after which the engine was replaced with a Monte Carlo 850. Another pattern of youth is always seeking more power! This then became my dad's commute car until he lost number 2 cylinder - the car went into “some day” mode.

   “Some day” arrived as the car approached the age of 40 and I happened upon the “Collectable Classic” section of Automobile magazine - the article revived my sleeping enthusiasm!  The GT850 / Monte Carlo was the featured car, and I learned in that article of Bud Clark of J & B Imports.  I called upon his expertise to build a fresh Monte Carlo 850, as well as wisely answer various questions.  All together, with the engine, new tires, sleeved/rebuilt master cylinder, electric fan, etc, I spent about $1,500 at that time.  The engine has less than 100 miles, and I still feel this is an exceptionally unique car, but my attentions have turned elsewhere - time for a new home!  VIN is 53821.

SOLD!  1960 SAAB 93F

     The 93F is the last of the line before the 96 was begun in the same year - 1960.  The primary outside indication that this is a single-year model is the door hinge.  All prior-year 93 models had 'suicide' doors, hinged in the rear.  In 1960 it the hinges were moved to the front -- just in time for the introduction of the 96. Before I acquired it in 2004 it was garaged for several years. After taking it outside for photos it was taken to my current garage where it's been protected from the elements ever since. This car is very straight, no dents or indications of any accident damage. No integral rust... just surface rust and dirt from its long dormancy. I also have some of the reproduction bumper parts from the Swedish SAAB Club. From what I can tell the only other things missing are turn signal lenses and insignia. The engine in the car now is not correct for the year, but I am including another engine that IS as part of the deal.

Like many of us, I acquired the car to restore and drive it but now that I'm retired, my interests have reverted to driving them and not restoring them. This can be a very pretty car when totally restored!

SOLD! 1969 SAAB 96

   This is a pristine never-restored, but well maintained 1969 SAAB 96.  It still looks like it just came from the factory, as you can see in the pictures.  The original odometer reads less than 38900 miles.  There is no rust anywhere on this car, the undercarriage is as clean as the rest of the car.  The original interior is like new, bright colors, soft and supple with no holes or tears.  Headliner is original and perfect.  The car's exterior was repainted once (with it's original color) Polar White, and it is a beautiful bright paint finish (including door jams, etc.).  No orange peel, overspray or any imperfections that I can see. The engine has the standard upgraded 34ICH Weber carb (with manual choke) for improved drivability, but I have an original FoMoCo carburetor for this SAAB, if you want to refit it.  The ignition is a Pertronix electronic for reliability.  The engine bay is also beautiful, as the picture shows.  The car has 5 new Vredestein (155x15) tires mounted on 5 freshly powder-coated SAAB rims and all new shocks.  The car idles and runs well, stops (disk brakes) and handles like a new car.  Shocks, fuel pump and other wear items have been replaced as part of the car's routine maintenance recently.

  This car has been passed down from one enthusiast to another over the years and has spent some time in a transportation museum.  I have records and a short history of the car.  All chrome and stainless is original and in beautiful condition.  The only non-original parts are the following upgrades.  The radio is a period-correct Blaupunkt, but I also have the original working SAAB-Bendix unit to go with the car.  The pictures also show period-correct aftermarket sisal carpeting, a SAAB-locking gas cap, stainless-steel gravel guards and several "Rally" stickers.  The stickers are all vinyl, and can easily be removed.  They were added recently and if removed there will not be any evidence of paint fade or discoloration.  The car has been always been covered (car cover included) in my garage except when being driven.  There is also a set of 4 factory-accessory wheel trim rings (very rare), which I will include with the car.   The mud flaps are new and I have a new spare.  Some documentation and period brochures are also available.

1968 SAAB 96 Deluxe


Parts or project car.   This V4 SAAB spent its entire life in northern Illinois and Indiana, so you imagine how much rust there is on it.  But the interior is in fairly decent shape and I was driving this lovely thing regularly (and having a heck of a time) before the transmission went out a year ago.  It's been in the garage since. 

Also not working:  interior light, parking brake, speedometer/odometer.  Dashboard is cracked in three places but the upholstery, headboard and carpet are all in fairly good shape.  No driver's side seat belt.  Oil leaks, but the compression's not at all bad.  The car was originally white and has been rather poorly repainted.  The radio is the original and works, but speaker is new.  Glass in good shape.  Driver's side tail light cracked and poorly repaired.  Owner's manual and service manual come with it.  More pictures on request.

  • I have had her since she was new and I was young.  Wanted to restore her but just can't pull it off.  

  • 89,509 miles on odometer.  

  • It has had a couple of engines or rebuilds. 

  • Body is pretty good, some rust, dent in left rear side fender, a 6-inch tear in left side at bottom in front of right door, and bubbles on hood.

  • It has not been running for a couple of years, had, (I think it was), a fuel line fire which was quickly extinguished.  Fire damage seems to be around spark plug area and one fan blade is melted, but no other metal meltdowns and the rubber parts are mostly intact.  Before that, I had major repairs done. 

  • In September 2001 (86672miles) had the engine removed to replace gear shaft, fan drive gear, fan bearing assembly, gaskets, seals and clutch assembly was replaced. 

  • In Jan 2001 axle bushing for brake and clutch pedal repaired. 

  • In Nov 1999 (85352mi) the transmission was completely redone. 

  • Tires almost new when last driven. 

  • The registration is current and she even has the original manual. 

  • Interior: headliner intact, no tears.  Back seat and jump seat in good condition, there is one small 2" rip in back seat.  Front seats need work.  Inside looks pretty good apart from that. 

  • She had a supporting role in a Huey Lewis Video, "Bad is Bad" during the '80s. 

I'd love for her to go to a Saab fan who'd like to fix her up.

I hate to be posting this little car for sale because it’s like part of the family - but the time has come. 

My son and I have been working on this a little at a time for 8 years.  It has always been my son’s daily driver and it still is.  He is graduating from college and needs a car that requires a little less tinkering.  Because we’ve loved owning it we had Paul Vail from Absolute Saab rebuild the engine last spring - but a newer car is what we need.  The car is currently in San Diego where my son attends college.

Here’s a list of what we’ve done:

  • The car has 120200 original miles

  • Full engine rebuild at 115K incl new pistons

  • New Weber carb

  • Rebuilt alternator

  • New water pump

  • Custom built high capacity radiator

  • New stock exhaust system

Additional new or renewed parts:

  • Electric radiator fan and thermal switch

  • New coil and electronic ignition

  • Rebuilt starter motor

  • Rebuilt wiper motor

  • New brake master cylinder

  • New Clutch and pressure plate

  • Rebuilt rear brake cylinder

  • New front brake pads

  • New front end upper and lower bushings

  • Front and rear seats custom reupholstered

  • New shocks all around

There is very little rust and the car has very good glass all around.

1972 SAAB 95

This wagon has spent its life in the semi-arid climate of southern California and for many years it was stored in a barn under cover.  I bought it a few years back to restore and I've been slowly bringing it back to life ever since.  Now, it's time to let someone else finish what I've started. 

The current engine and transmission are from a ’72 Sonett that I bought from a guy for parts.  He'd had Bud Clark rebuild the whole drivetrain about 5000 miles before he smacked a light pole in a parking lot.  Both the transmission and the engine are in excellent running condition; the trans has a very low-mileage ring and pinion which was replaced during the transmission rebuild.  Carb is a Weber 34ICH, with most of the vacuum plumbing sorted out.  Manual choke, starts handily every time.  I’ve replaced all hydraulic components with the exception of the hard brake lines.  NEW parts include (4) tires, clutch disc, clutch master, clutch slave, brake master, wheel cylinders, calipers, pads and shoes, front hoses, and all ball joints, bushings and tie rod ends that were worn.  Front shocks are Koni and work well, rears are stock levers and need to be rebuilt.  The dash pad is practically like new and most of the seat vinyl is excellent with the exception of the driver’s seat bottom which is split.   The plastic coating on the rear deck is sun damaged in spots. 

There is NO ROT anywhere on this car.  There are a few very minor surface rust spots that could easily be cleaned-up by hand.  The underbody and rockers are totally solid.  All-in-all, if you ever wanted to restore a 95, this is the one to work with.  That's exactly why I bought it.  Now that it's running, and mechanically sound, attention can be turned to the cosmetic issues.


  • Exhaust from midpipe back

  • Interior door panels redone - the backer board is broken in spots, the panels are currently out of the car

  • LF fender and turn signal assembly took a minor hit before I bought it -- a replacement fender is available

  • Body attention -- the clearcoat is peeling in places and there are quite a few little dings and dents

  • Rear shocks, leaky and bouncy -- they are rebuildable

  • Dash clock (missing)

  • Rear brakes drag a bit - it's likely just a weak return spring, or the e-brake mechanism is sticking

  • Windshield gasket and trim

  • Driver's seat bottom needs repair

1961 SAAB 93F

I have been thinking about selling my 93F for a while and now it will be offered for sale as I do not feel that I have the time and or patience to do a complete restoration as I had intended to do on this car.  Here is the skinny on the car:

It has sat for approximately 28 years under cover and has little to no rust and no known perforation.  There are a few very small bubbles on the body where the left rear fender joins, and there has never been any rust repair.  Body straight, all glass good.  Both doors dented, but again no rust.  850 engine and 4 speed were installed before car was parked and both believed to be good, engine free, but I have not run it, base engine, single carb.  GT750 interior panels, good in rear, door panels rough.  Car has a 96 GT750 serial number plate and is titled as a 1961 96 GT750.  Has the twin pipe GT or Monte exhaust system.  Mint 93F owners manual and the cool gas cap with the add oil gold sign attached.  Some extra spares.  Missing coil/ignition switch and the 93 emblem from trunk.  Car was running and driving when parked years ago.  Came from the Rick Wolf collection in Oregon, I bought it from a guy who bought it from Rick and hauled it up to Washington.

This would be a nice project car for a Saab collector.  The car is complete and original.  I have started the motor and cleaned the fuel tank but I haven’t driven it because the brake system needs to be bled.  This car has a 850cc three cylinder motor with three carburetors & manual transmission.  There is no major damage on this car; the worst dent is on the right door (see photo).  There is no rust at all, front seats are in good condition, rear seat and door need to be reupholstered.  It will also need new carpeting.  The VIN number is 371769.

  • Isn’t currently inspected, but passed fine the summer before last

This is a California car that I bought and drove cross-country in 1985.  I drove it for 1 year and parked it in my Dad’s barn.  It was made roadworthy again 2 years ago and has been driven in the summer months and stored in a barn in the winter months.  At the time of the purchase, it was cherry.

Cosmetically, the car has minor dings and a dent in the passenger side door.  In need of a new paint job. The upholstery on the seats had been redone and are still in fantastic shape.  The headliner was redone, but needs replacing.  The rear seats are in great shape and show no sings of UV deterioration.  A Blaupunkt AM/FM/cassette with equalizer has been installed in the glove compartment. The speakers are ADS and are mounted on the doors.  Stereo kicks ass.

Deal sweetener:  will include a set of Sonnet soccer ball wheel and lugs with the deal.

1967 SAAB 96

My beautiful, white 1967 SAAB V4 with 135,000 miles is for sale.  I needed a second car to haul my kids around in. I have owned it for 4 years and have driven it daily.  This car has never let me sit, has ALWAYS started, never overheated, and runs incredibly!!  

The heat works excellent with manual valve under the hood, brakes work great too. All the windows are in perfect shape and function as they should, all gauges work excepting the clock.  All dash lights function, too.  New tires in the past 2 years, new front resonator and manifold pipes.  Recent spark plug wire set. The interior is decent and the body is a B+ with little rust.  A few scabs here and there have been repaired along the way.  Looks like the original paint.  Someone repaired the passenger rear panel along the way too.  Driver's door has an impression / dent and a few small pieces of trim were off when I bought it.  Silver tape takes the place of the chrome trim in the pictures and has been this way since I bought it to keep out water etc.  New valve cover gaskets were put on at 126,000 miles.  I rebuilt the brake and clutch master cylinders a year or so ago.  New oil sending unit.  Comes with some spare parts as well: fan bearing, jack, spark plug wrench, thermostat, brake clips, points, oil filter, car cover, spare tire, hubcaps, owners manuals, and service manuals, misc.  Free wheeling was welded before I got the car.  The transmission works great!  Like all old cars, it leaves a little oil on the garage floor but nothing serious.  Doesn't smoke and neither did I.  No glove box.  Car has been put in the garage every night here in Pennsylvania since I bought it.  

Buyer must pick it up here in PA.  I wouldn't recommend a multi-state drive although it does hold it's own on the highway. The longest highway trip I took has been around 50 miles.  Feel free to e-mail with any questions.  I will call you back.

1969 SAAB 96

Little Red is a wonderful 1969 Model 96 which I bought two years ago and began to restore.  I have been driving him every day since then but I finished my schooling in Seattle and have moved back home to Alaska.  It would have cost me $1000 to ship him up here and I don't have that kind of money on hand so the car is in storage in Seattle until the first week in Nov when I return for a few days. At this point he can be seen and will have to be sold.

I put him on Ebay before I left in August and the $1800 reserve was not met so I put him in storage as I had to leave the next day to return to Alaska.

He is a wonderful car, very mechanically sound under aged paint.  He has a few spots of minor surface rust – most has been repaired.  Some around lower edge of the rear trunk and inside the passenger door had yet to be dealt with but it is not major.  Any spots of rust in the engine compartment, floor, driver's door, front fenders, trunk (inside) has all been cleaned and painted with por-15 rust preventative paint.  He has new boards for the trunk floor.  He has approx 107K miles on the odometer.

New within the last 7K miles:

  • front calipers and hoses

  • clutch master & slave cylinders

  • alternator (rebuilt)

  • water pump – new OEM

  • valve job

  • carb adjustment

  • rebuilt CV joints inner and outer

  • front and rear speakers

  • front end alignment

  • NOS reinforced Rally A-arms

He is very original – even to the point of not having an external aerial.  He has an original Saab windscreen and the interior door panels are original in great shape.  The previous owner had the headliner rebuilt before I got him and it is perfect.  He has all the trim pieces and a complete set of hubcaps and insignia. The seats are original with headrest inserts. There are covers on the seats as the vinyl is cracked but the foam and frames are in perfect shape.

The original paint is tired, the two radiator mounts need reattaching to the radiator, the exhaust is in good shape but needs some re-welding up-front where the down tubes join the crosswise pipe - no rust - just poor welds.  The windscreen washer pump is dead, tyres are ok but show some wear due to his prior misaligned front.  He has has a few dents and dings commensurate with his age but nothing major.

There is synthetic oil in the engine and Redline synthetic manual transmission lube in the tranny.  He comes with a factory workshop manual and an original owners manual and records back to the 90's.  I also have boxes of misc. parts which can go with him as well as a set of four wheels (winter tyres?). There is a spare (blue) trunk lid (no dents), axles/CV joints, seats etc.

This car has never let me down. He runs like a champ with a lot of get up and go.  He is zippy and draws a lot of attention.  The purchaser has first dibs on purchasing the following new parts I acquired to get him into tip top shape: Perfect dash - no cracks or marks of any kind, two rebuilt heads with hardened seats (not really indicated but I was going for it!), complete engine gasket set and a professionally rebuilt original equipment FOMOCO carb.

The car is currently licensed in Alaska and since he was located in Seattle - he also has a Washington State emissions certificate.  If you are interested, e-mail me soon as it will be first come-first serve when I return to Seattle to show him and sell him Nov. 1-3 ONLY!

50,000 miles of daily driving (and normal wear and tear) on a quite expensive complete restoration seven years ago; restoration photos and records available. Presently registered and inspected. Just had rebuilt front brake cylinder pistons, new seals, new front brake pads, and new Bosch platinum spark plugs.

New, over past 18 months:

  • exhaust system (complete)

  • rear brake cyl, springs, hardware, shoes

  • front brake rotors

  • clutch master and slave cylinders

  • windshield wiper motor

  • back-up light

  • brake light switch

  • radiator thermostat

  • cooling system flush and fill

The car had an engine-out engine and transmission rebuild 40,000 miles/7 years ago. The engine is the 1700 cc V4.  Parts are still available.  The following items were replaced 50-40,000 miles ago.  There is a new cam for improved lower-range torque.  New Weber 34ICH carburetor (manual choke), new distributor, electronic ignition, high output coil, ported heads, etc.  New clutch disc, plate, and throwout bearing.  The cooling system was reconfigured to recapture reservoir with electric fan.  Re-cored radiator.  New high-volume oil pump and drive.  New fuel pump, water pump and new water distribution fitting.  New brake master cylinder and hard line, rebuilt wheel cylinders and calipers, new parking brake cables. The upper and lower A-arms were reinforced (boxed), all new bushings, new snubbers and bumpers, new ball joints and tie-rod ends, front springs new NOS, rear springs replaced, new shocks (Bilstein front, Boge rear), front anti-sway bar installed.  Removable stainless-steel battery tray to facilitate front end alignment.  New windshield. The interior was redone as needed. The headliner and front seats are redone nicer than stock, the headliner in fabric and the front seats in MB-Tex vinyl with all new foam. The rear seat is original, as are the carpets. The Nardi wooden steering wheel is from a 1967 SAAB Monte Carlo rally model. The horn switch is now on the wiper stalk, with a dash button for windshield washer. New brake, clutch, and gas pedal pads. The car has a concealed Alpine detachable-face CD & radio system with front and rear speakers. Original owner's manual plus Haynes service manual plus much SAAB club literature.

Car currently needs: tuneup and valve adjustment; rear wheelarch rust repair; floor rust repair; mild crumple LF fender repair; LF parking light assy; general body and paint work. May need new tires to pass inspection in October. Windshield washer is balky.

These cars have bucketfuls of character and are great fun to drive. It is rare to see a SAAB 96 that is on the road, running and registered and inspected, that has so many new parts and so many components rebuilt, for this little money. The price is fair and realistic in view of the need to attend to body and paint issues.

This is a good running daily driver car that could be great with a fresh coat of paint.  I've owned this car for 4 years now and have done lots of work to all the major systems.  Some of the most notable work includes:

  • Rebuilt Transmission with all new bearings and synchros and a new clutch
  • Completely rebuilt brakes including master cylinder re-sleeved in brass, stainless brake lines, new rear wheel cylinders and rebuilt front calipers
  • Suspension work included rebuilt "heavy duty" rear shocks by Apple Hydraulics. The rear axle was repainted and rebuilt with new bushings. All new rear wheel bearings.
  • The engine has been gone through and includes new balance shaft bearings, all new seals, and a new water pump. Rebuilt heads with hardened seats. Jack Lawrence Holley 43mm performance carb and manifold. Entire exhaust replaced with new stock system within last 2 years.  Pertronix Ignitor Optical Ignition (no points).

The body is in good shape. There are some minor dents and very minor surface rust but there is no through rust or structural rust at all.   All instruments work well except horn and cigarette lighter.  The interior is in fairly good shape. All the seats are in good condition except the drivers seat has duct tape on the seat bottom. The headliner is in good condition except for 2 small holes from a mouse.  This car includes lots of spare parts including an extra rear door, spare rear opening windows, front chrome, master cylinder core, extra rear taillights, etc.

Two 1971 SAAB 95s for sale

The tan one has 85,000 original miles and had been preserved by the oil method. I picked it up to replace the blue one in it's old age, then it was to restore it, but than my life changed. The blue one has 205,000 miles with engine and transmission rebuilt at around 130,000 and had a rust search and destroy mission around 122K, doors and fenders removed, rust blasted, treated, repainted and undercoated. The rear shocks were replaced at around 170K.  Both drove prior to their present resting spot. They get turned over yearly to pump the oil through, and the blue one actually still runs.  The tan one has a gas pump/float problem so it didn't start last year. They are still worthwhile for restoring. I had hopes of building a garage to work on them myself but having kids has greatly slowed down my ambitions of that.  I would like to find them a good home while they are still worthwhile.  I have many spare parts including tires and wheels, a front right fender, muffler, gas pump parts and more I can't remember in boxes in cellar.  I even think that there may be a radiator.  All the lenses are intact.  They reside in Barnstead New Hampshire and now that the snow is gone, they are accessible. They are presently up on blocks on top of tarps to cut down on the ground moisture.

Presently located in San Francisco Bay area.  Can be driven but is noisy (exhaust pipe) and very heavy as all spares are in the trunk/cargo compartment.

V4 rebuilt in 1995.  Carb rebuilt in 1999.  Fuel cell and sender rebuilt in 2000.  Electronic timing and fuel pump.  Transmission is 31 years old and still doing the job!  I hate to let it go, but I just don't have the time to tinker with it anymore.

1970 SAAB 96, fully restored & ready to go!   fully restored & ready to go!   white, ~130K 

This one is a strong runner. The bulk of the work needed is cosmetic and would be a bit of a project for the neophyte, but a fairly easy fixer-upper for the committed SAABaholic. I bought this car from an owner on the Olympic Peninsula here in Washington, and have since owned it for three years. I have done some minor repairs myself, but have entrusted most of the major repairs to one of Puget Sound's best vintage SAAB mechanics. I have full record of repairs done since purchase.

Problems: The interior in general is pretty rough. There is some leakage around the passenger door and in the boot (the boot lid should probably be replaced). The speedometer just recently cut out (I had to fix this when I bought it too). Odometer does not work now either. The car had 107K when I bought it. I'd say the car has between 120-130K on it now. Gas gauge works but is off by a quarter of a tank. Quite frankly, it appears that a previous owner did a lot of their own electrical work, and did not know what they were doing. Potential buyers might want to consider a general rewiring. AM/FM Cass. works but speakers should be replaced. Parking break cables have been replaced but break shoe needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

The Good News: Gearbox was rebuilt two years ago. Free wheel is totally functional (I have not used it much). New-ish break system and tires. Clutch seems pretty solid. Body is in very good shape. There are minor rust spots, but these have been patched up very well; work is visible only under careful scrutiny. There are a few dings but they are very minor. Bumpers are in good shape. This car was definitely never out east!

Other goodies: Set of heavy traction front snow tires. Electric rear window defroster (not installed now). 'Old School' Thule ski rack (a little bent but totally functional).

Final Thoughts: I bought this car with the hopes of restoring it to it's former glory, but like many other novice car buffs, I underestimated the amount of time, money and effort it would take to do this. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed this car immensely and have learned so much from owning it. It has been a very reliable and fun car and has never left me stranded. I have driven it up to the mountains to go skiing, out to the peninsula, and as far south as Eugene without a hitch. I am going to graduate school and need to 'consolidate' a bit so the car must go (though I'm not in a huge hurry to get rid of it). I'm hoping to sell it to someone who can give it the time and attention it deserves! Please contact me if interested:

1968 SAAB 96 V4 Deluxe, "The Cop Car"

*  1500cc V4 with 10k on rebuild (new bearings, MSS heads)
*  MSS exhaust from top to tail
* 1969 advance curve distributor, Bosch blue coil
*  4 speed transmission with working freewheel
*  New 2-tone head-turning paint job -- white top, black sides
*  Late radiator, 900T cooling fan, 180 deg. thermoswitch inline
*  MSS springs in front, new ball joints
*  KYB Gasadjust shocks all around
*  Soccerball rims with new Kelly radials

The tranny is tight -- neither it nor the engine loses any oil -- and the cooling system is tight. The motor was redone by Ted Tucker (Loki automotive) in the 1980s. Very little rust, all repairable, needs trim strips to be perfect exterior-wise. Dash has a working tach, all instruments work except clock, radio from 1987 9000 with graphic EQ and 4 speakers. Wiring all checks out as car was a hulk when I got it. The interior could use work -- it's 31 years old! This is the only 96 I've ever owned with perfect working window regulators, they're very smooth and easy to operate. The car is driven daily here in VA.   $2500.00 OBO.
