Single-Owner 1970 Saab 96

  Saabs aren’t the most common vehicles, especially ones from over 50 years ago, but we’ve seen a handful of 1960s and 1970s-era examples here recently. Another one has popped up for sale, this time a one-owner 1970 96… more»

38K-Mile Two-Stroke Triple: 1967 Saab 96

Bidders are hot for this 1967 Saab 96 triple, it’s a low-mileage original car that has had a recent restoration. That’s unfortunate in my world as I would much have rather seen it in original-original condition with the original… more»

Stunning Swede: 1988 Saab 900 SPG

Even though Saab hasn’t really been making new cars for a decade (they’ve been bought and resold several times, restructured, and are essentially electric cars made in China, search online for Saab NEVS), in the 1980s and 1990s Saab… more»

Bargain Swede: 1984 Saab 900 Turbo

This 1984 Saab 900 is a rare four-door with the turbocharged engine option, a powerplant typically reserved for the three-door hatchback. It’s hard to tell whether this photo is staged or if it just rolled out of storage, but… more»

Dealer Find: 26k Mile 1973 Volvo 1800ES

A teacher on Long Island bought a brand new Volvo in 1966 and loved it so much that he drove it 3.25 million miles before his death in 2018. The story of Irv Gordon is fascinating, and I highly… more»

Black Plate Driver: 1962 Volvo PV544

It seems that this 1962 Volvo PV544 doesn’t spend its entire life hidden away in the garage. The owner says it comes out every week for a jaunt to a Cars & Coffee, suggesting that this classic is about… more»

No Reserve Driver: 1992 Saab 900 S

There’s something reassuring about finding a classic car that its owner offers for sale with a complete service history. That is the case with this 1992 Saab 900 S, and its overall condition helps explain why it has already… more»

One Family Owned: 1964 Volvo PV544

We’ve seen a few older classics in recent times here at Barn Finds that have been part of the same family since new. The trend continues with this 1964 Volvo PV544. The seller has listed it on behalf of… more»

Stored Since ’75: 1972 Saab Sonett III

The second owner of this Saab Sonett III removed the car from the road in 1975 and it’s been sitting in their garage near Fairfield, California ever since! Apparently, it’s time to pass the car on to a new… more»

Rare And Beautiful: 1953 Volvo PV444

My guess is that this will go quickly. It’s a very rare 1953 Volvo 444, the first postwar model to arrive in the U.S., and it’s available here on craigslist in suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota for a very reasonable $4,600.

Sporty Swede: 1969 Saab Sonett V4

1970-74 Saab Sonett IIIs come up quite frequently here on Barn Finds; I’ve written about three of them myself. Its predecessor, the 1967-69 Sonett V4, is not quite as common, with only 1610 produced over that three-year period. After… more»

This 1970 Volvo 1800E Has Been Asleep For 25 Years

We’ve all been there, buying a car as a project, storing it in the garage and then…life gets in the way. That’s the case with this 1970 Volvo 1800E here on Craigslist in Boulder County, Colorado. The owner bought… more»

BF EXCLUSIVE: 1992 Volvo 240 Survivor

SOLD! We received a surprisingly huge amount of interest in this one. It sold right away and is headed to an East Coast Barn Finds reader. Thanks guys! One of my friends (a lifelong Volvo mechanic) had worked on… more»

Ran When Started? 1974 Saab Sonett III

Styling is always subjective. There can be agreement at either end of the spectrum, as in a knock-out look, or something that is so ugly it would make a freight train take a dirt road – but there’s a… more»

Show Winning Barn Find: 1969 Saab 96

This 1969 Saab 96 has a fascinating back story and has been stashed in a California garage for 12 years. The seller notes it belongs to his mother, who purchased the car as a lightly restored example in 1995… more»
