You’ll have to pardon me, I am not overly well-read on vintage Saabs. When I saw this car submitted, I jumped on the opportunity to do a write-up on the car. Early Saabs like this one here on craigslist are not common, although they never really were too popular. This car features station-wagon styling with the face-lifted grille.
There is not much to be said about the interior of this car – the padded dash appears to be in good condition. All the switches and gauges are there. The only glaring issue appears to be the worn driver’s seat – unsurprising for a nearly 50 year-old car.
Aside from their quirky looks, Saabs also were unique in that many had two-stroke engines. This car sports a V4, which is borrowed from the Ford Taunus. The owner does not say much about the mechanical condition of the car unfortunately, aside from it having a V4 and a 4 speed transmission.
This angle of the car is one of my favorites. You can just barely see the classic Saab mud flaps with the plane underneath. The “fins” are reminiscent of 1950’s American cars, but the taillights appear completely out of place. I love the color too. What would you do with this Saab?
