Re: 74 SAAB fo sale


Hi folks, new guy here.
I have the 1974 Saab 96 and sought Mr. Vedder's advice, didn't know he posted it until I got emails.

Ah well, it's not quite ready for prime time but I guess it's for sale.

She was dropped off at a body shop in Yonkers and then the owner passed away; that was 12 years ago. I bought it from the body shop owner. It sat next to a dumpster with one window cracked open. It was a roach! Skanky, rat crap under the engine, trash, yikes! Trailered it home and started inventory.

The gas tank was not strapped in, I pulled the gage level out and discovered someone had cut the legs off with a hack saw. I bought a new one. I pulled the engine just so I could clean it. It's been repainted Ford blue.
I removed the interior and welded up the rusty floorboards and duck buttered in some seam sealer.

The car has no Title, paperwork of any kind (I do have the owner's name and address) nor does it have a key. I wired in an on/off switch and a momentary button for the starter. I have but haven't installed a barrel cut off switch to access from inside the fender well.

The wheels are cleaned up and repainted Navy Blue, comes with 4 shiny hub caps.

I currently have $1472.58 invested, please don't ask how many hours. I was going to assemble it further and put it out there for ~$2k. but if anyone wants it as-is $1450.

Light wet sand and a little wax woke it right up.
Car is located in Ballston Spa, just south of Saratoga.

This is what's stamped on the car in three places I can find.

96722015554.

VIN Decoder says it's a 1972.

If you don't have a trailer or dolly, I will throw in a free tow bar so you can flat tow it.
