This SAAB is an early 96 so it’s still wearing the “bull nose” front end treatment. It’s powered by a 3-cylinder 2-stroke engine and a three on the tree transmission. The seller makes the impressive statement that this has been their vintage daily driver for the past two years! So, if you are okay with pre-mixing your fuel, this could be the perfect all-season classic. Find it here on eBay where it’s listed with no reserve and only about a day left.
Well, you wouldn’t actually have to mix oil in your gas because this one has a mixer. That means there’s a small tank of oil and it is injected right into the fuel as that tiny 2-stroke ring a ding dings along. You would still need to keep any eye on that oil level, but it would be a lot nicer than having to mix at the pump.
The outside has been resprayed in the original white and I would assume that the seats have been recovered too. Those type of details are less important if you plan on using your classic for daily transportation. These are front wheel drive and do great in the snow so it could realistically be a year round car. After driving a few, I’d want a small steering wheel. It is a nice homage to SAAB’s airplane past though.
In an ironic twist of fate, the seller has installed a radio from a Volvo. The more conservative of the two Swedish manufacturers has lived on, but SAAB will always be remembered for their unique ideas. They weren’t afraid to do things differently and as a result produced some very interesting cars.
