1966 Saab OtherI bought this car locally on Craigslist to fix up and drive myself. The car was stored in a barn since 1994 under a thin coat of dust and dirt. Since getting the car home and cleaning it up I realize now that this car is too nice to just enjoy as a "driver". And the car is actually pretty rare and deserves to be properly restored... or at least needs to be in the possession of someone more into Saabs than myself?. The car is a 1966 Saab 850 Monte Carlo Sport! Pretty rare to find one this original and unrestored. The car is SOLID. NO rust issues. There is alot of surface rust on the paint chips and on the underside of the car etc. But the body, loors, nd subframes are all solid and need no repair.
I think the car might of had a fender bender at the right front corner sometime in its life. The right front fender appears to have been replaced by a standard Saab 96 fender. The paint on the right fender, he nose, nd on part of the hood is crazed and has alot of surface rust. This has been sprayed with some flat white primer to protect. The remainder of the cars paint is original.
The interior is in really nice condition and the buyer will have a hard decision about keeping or replacing the original upholstery.
There are some parts in the photos that are missing: notably the right door handle, he wipers and the chrome top piece for the grill. I found most of the missing parts and pieces inside the cars various storage places. There is a couple of boxes of various fiddly parts that come with the car. I carefully searched the car while lightly cleaning it.
The only parts I know are missing are the broken left rear tail light lens, nd the MonteCarlo 850 badge from the right front fender, nbsp; and a couple of small chrome trim pieces.
I have not tried to start the car. The man I bought it from said it ran fine when parked 21 years ago.I bought the car with no keys... But I actually FOUND THEM under the rear seats! ... So I have made no attempt to run the car.
Car has full keys and a clear Illinois Title.
I live an hour or so SouthWest of Chicago.
The car is for sale AS IS, HERE IS. You must arrange for shipping or come and get the car.The car rolls find and the tires hold air good.
All valid forms of payment are fine, nbsp; I will store the car a reasonable amount of time, ndoors, ntil you can pick it up, rovided it is paid for promptly. Please dont waste my time.
No reserve. highest bidder wins the car.thanxOn Dec-23-15 at 12:24:11 PST, eller added the following information:
Hello; I have been informed my many Ebay viewers that the motor in this car almost certainly is not the correct original motor. This car should have a 850cc 3 cylinder 2 stroke motor.
This car presently has a Saab/Ford V-4 motor installed. I did not intend to mislead anyone!Again the car presently has an INCORRECT MOTOR, on-original installed.
I contacted the man I got the car from and he has no idea of the whereabouts of the original motor. Sorry
The V-4 motor is not stuck and can easily be rotated by pushing the car backward in gear.I have not tried putting a battery in the car.
