1973 Saab 99 LE
Hello, and thank you for looking at my Saab 99 race car!
I would put the car as being between 90-95% complete, and all of the hard fabrication and custom work is already done. Almost everything that's left can be done with bolt-on parts. It does not currently run.
This is the perfect car for someone who wants a unique race car for track days, canyon carving, vintage racing, or just something that most people have never seen before.
There is an extensive build thread on Saabrally.comwhich documents almost everything that has been done to the car from start to finish, with fabrication and modification notes, parts interchanges, and build details. I'd be happy to send you the link if you cannot find it.
I also have more photos available if you are not able to come see the car in person.
All of the fabrication and mechanical work was done by myself or my brother. I used to be a professional Saab technician, and all of the work was done to a very high standard using only OEM and old-stock parts, some of which were very hard to find.
-Rust free 1973 Saab 99 LE notchback body still wearing original paint, 1973-only Brilliant Yellow, code Y9
-Clean and clear California title on non-operation, with no back fees
-Extensive body lightening (door skins, undercoating, polycarbonate windscreen and windows)
-Custom hand fitted fully tig-welded 4130 chrome-moly roll cage built to FIA-253 (stage rally) specification
-Fresh rebuilt with zero miles N/A B202 twin-cam engine, firewall clearanced to accomodate larger footprint engine, sitting on custom engine mounts
-Fresh rebuilt with zero miles GM 456-06 5-speed transmission
-Fidanza 9 lb aluminum flywheel with 6-puck Clutchnet clutch
-Fresh non-power steering rack
-Complete suspension with all brand new bushings and balljoints, and vented disc brakes and calipers from 1991 Saab 900 Turbo

-Two Bimarco Expert racing seats with valid FIA-8855 safety stickers
The car as it sits now weighs 1,850 pounds.
The car still needs the following to be made running:
-Cooling system (radiator, fans, hoses, engine oil cooler)
-Fuel delivery system (pump or pumps, fuel lines)
-Fuel injection system - I have parts to set it up to run on Saab Trionic5 fully sequential engine management system, but it could easily be set up to run Weber or Dellorto carbs
-Pedal box and brake lines (Some fabrication required, brake master cylinders, clutch master cylinder, throttle and throttle cable, I was going to use Tilton or Wilwood racing components)
-Wiring - I have a complete Saab 900 body wiring harness that fits almost perfectly to wire the lights that is included
I also have extensive spare parts available at negotiable additional cost since I intended to race this car, including but not limited to:
-Glass, including original front windows, windshield, rear window)
-Extra set of Ronal 8-spoke wheels
-Lightly used racing slicks
-Suspension hard parts (front control arms, hubs, complete rear axle, power steering rack that could be adapted)
-Brakes (new rotors, pads, spare calipers)
-Additional suspension springs and dampers in various rates
-Extra engine (turbocharged if desired)
-Extra transmissions and transmission parts
-Clutches, flywheels, engine sensors, halfshafts, stock and modified ECU's, etc etc etc.
