Talladega Red - Dover Grey Velour
3 Previous Owners

BKZ 2461
First registered 15.01.1993 by Brecks Saab and incredibly still wearing its
original dealer supplied plates front to rear. Can be described as a very
tidy original and useable Saab with a sweet engine with a very well preserved
interior, clean paint work soft top and engine bay.
Setting this car apart is its original unaltered condition, this is not a
restored Saab, it even has the original supplied Sony radio. Its been well
maintaned with only 3 previous and a thick file of paperwork. The most recent
owner from York has owned it for the last 18 years. It has covered a mere 139000
miles which is very little in Saab 900 terms. This is the final year of
production prior to GM taking over the manufacturing process, its the very
last of the best. The current MOT is valid until 7th June 2020.

The Saab 900 Cult
The classic world is at last waking up to the classic Saab, like all the real
Saab's its as timeless now as it was then, and they were the real deal. Classic
cars come and go but the appeal of some remains constant and none more
so than the 900 - the last real Saab say some of the marque's cognoscenti.
Think of it as a time-warped Sixties swinger but with MTV street cred and a
style and look that was as unique as Citroen's. All of which is why the last
Saab 900 - manufactured until 1993 - became an instant classic upon its
demise, and remains a sought after though little remembered classic as
yet, though time has a habit of changing things.

Owning a late model Saab 900 is an easy way to being different and this modern
classic is one that anyone would be deeply proud to be the next custodian, its
ready to be used and enjoyed and stored with sympathy, and would be the envy
of any Saab show it entered. With values of young timer Fords Vauxhalls Mercs
and Bmws rising, this is a bit different and is a model that has a proper depth
to the build quality and engineering, one of the coolest cult cars ever made.

Cabin/ Roof
The interior of the 900 is awash with period velour, emitting an unforgettable
aroma that takes you back in time. The chairs remain in excellent condition and
supportive in a way seats will never be again. The rear seats look unused.
The mohair hood folds electrically in a matter of seconds and folds back up with
equal pace. Its in good condition with a proper rear glass screen that is

The engine bay presents remarkably well and is consistent with a car having
been well cared for.

Saab Innovation
Things like the world's first side impact bars, the first pollen and pollution
filter for the cabin air system, and windscreen pillars made of 2.5mm rolled
steel, were all unique Saab traits. Lift up the carpet and you will find box
section steel beams like no other car, reinforcing the floor. The 900 was so
far ahead in safety terms at its 1979 launch that it stayed safe until its
discontinuation in 1993 after nearly a million cars were made. Driving the
Saab 900 is a world away from today's flat-screened greenhouses. You sit
deep behind a unique curved windscreen with a dashboard that rolls away for
acres. The windscreen is slot-like and your knees go under the fascia - not
over it. It is more like sitting in a deep Victorian cast iron bath.
