Saab 96 V4 from 1971
Gray with a red interior.
This classic Saab is in excellent condition, built according to the specifications of SAAB Sport & Rally. This car was sold new in Östersund, Sweden in September 1970.
The first owner was a pilot and had it until 1987. The second owner was a car collector in Trollhättan, Sweden, well known in the Saab community.
He bought the car mainly because it was rust-free. During his ownership the car received several upgrades such as Ronal wheels, pop-out rear side windows, reversing lights, Bosch 150 fog lights and an American front fascia.
He also replaced the front fenders due to some scratches and repaired a small defect in the roof.
These items were then painted at the Saab factory.
The rest of the car still has the original paint, code RB1 – Silvermink. This is a rare color, only available in 1971.
The original red interior is in very good condition.
The third owner was a Saablover from Hamar in Norway.
The car came to his garage in November 2004.
He has been driving for Saab since 1980 and has collected many parts. After two years he built a completely new drivetrain for the car. This is a 1700 cc engine built according to Saab's Sport & Rally specifications.
This means that the engine has the 7.2 camshaft, Weber 36-36 DCD, modified valves, stiffer valve springs, lighter (aluminum) valve spring holders, lighter valve tappets, aluminum rocker arms, high-pressure oil pump, electronic ignition, thicker radiator and a two-inch exhaust system.
The cylinder heads are ported and flattened 1mm to increase compression. The intake manifold is also ported for better flow.
The gearbox is equipped with the final drive from the Sonett III, and the first and second gears come from Saab's competition gear set Special 1.
This means a higher first and second gear and a 4% higher final drive. A reinforced coupling has been fitted. Functional freewheel with six rollers.
The engine was built by a Saab mechanic, Mr. Gjestrum Larsen from Larvik in Norway, with more than 50 years of experience in tuning Saabs.
The gearbox was installed by an experienced mechanic.
This Saab 96 drives exceptionally well and everything shows that this is a very special car.
A very original Saab with a special story.
A unique opportunity for every car enthusiast.
