1968 Saab Other
You’re considering a 1968 Saab 96 V4. It was purchased in Corapolis, A in February 1969. The car comes with a meticulously documented original owner history including original bill of sale, indow sticker and a complete chronology of service and mechanical history culminating in transfer of ownership to the original owner’s son in June 1995 as witnessed by a notary public. At that time the vehicle showed 33,268 miles according to the latest service receipt from the previous April. From there, he car’s ownership and service history is not well documented. The Saab turned upin April 2014in Marble Falls Texas where my father purchased the car. It had been stored indoors as part of a collection, pparently for quite some time. He performed a thorough servicing to recommission the Saab for the road and used it sparingly for Sunday drives and local shows. The vehicle now shows 34,588 miles. We can make no definitive claims due to the gap in ownership and service records, utgiven its overall condition the possibility that it has covered just over 1000 miles since 1995 is entirely plausible.
The Saab has had what appears to be a complete respray in its original color at some point and it is holding up very well. It is not a concourse job but probably as good as or better than it came from the factory in single-stage polyurethane paint (not base-coat/clear coat) which gives it a perfect period correct look. The panels are all arrow straight. I’ve taken close-ups of the finish’s worst flaws to give as accurate a sense as possible of quality and condition. There is no rust evident anywhere on the car with the exception of the door bottoms which appear to have been treated well before any serious rust took hold. My father added an oil cooler and electric fan for peace of mind in our hot climate. He reports that the car never once overheated but that the gauge would begin to climb off the normal running temperature mark if idling for extended periods. You can see the dash pad is cracked and crudely repaired. The interior is otherwise beautiful. The engine and gearbox perform flawlessly as do all other electrical and mechanical systems. I’ll spare the hyperbole and let the pictures do the talking. There can’t be many left in this condition. We highly encourage an in-person or third party inspection before the end of the auction.I know of no reason why the car could not be driven anywhere but I advise trailering or transporting beyond a few hundred miles out of respect for the car and conditions that prevail en route on today’s interstate system.
