Saab 99 Turbo – Some great 99 turbos for sale right now…

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

For those of you in the market for a Saab 99 Turbo, there are 3 great opportunities on Saabnet:

(note the availability of these cars or the addition of new may change quickly from the time this is posted).

I want to call special attention to one of the cars in particular. It’s certainly not the prettiest of the three. It’s the burgundy one that is missing the front grill. This would certainly be a car worth restoring as it is one of the original 1977 test fleet cars (only 100 made) and has the special recognition of being the 99 Turbo used and featured in Car and Driver‘s Road Test in its 1977 issue. You can view a pdf of this article on our website on the documents page:

I have the original magazine at my office. I’ll give it to the person who buys this car and can prove they’re going to restore it. Not much of an offer I know, but hopefully some additional encouragement to whoever might already be interested in taking on this worthy restoration project.
