1987 - SAAB 900 Turbo

My well loved Saab 900 Turbo Convertible is up for sale. It’s time time to finally let go of the family SAAB after 27 years of ownership and 186,000 Miles. Located in Redondo Beach, CA


The History

 My Dad and I are the second owners of this SAAB having originally bought it in 1990 from the original owner in Arizona. Its been garaged its entire life, is rust free, professional maintained with a rebuilt transmission in 2006, Head Gasket  in 2011 and new turbo in 2012. The car has an amazing top of the line sound system that presents crystal clear sound while cruising down the freeway at 75 mph

What's So Great About this Car?

The SAAB 900 is a great example of a modern classic. It has been well maintained and drives exceptionally well. With a new turbo and a slight tune to the APC, this car really gets up and goes. The car comes with the original plastic covers for when the top is down and the original cabin cover. Maintenance records from the last decade are also included. Yes it has 186,200 miles on it but all the major engine and drive train work has been completed. Comes with extra body parts.

What Needs Attention?

Heater control and A/C does not work. Fortunately when temp control valve got stuck it got stuck on full heat. When it’s cold I put the fan on and there is plenty of heat on tap. When it’s nice out top is down and breeze keeps me cool. Heated seats also do not work and will likely need a catalytic converter if register in California. Years ago I had it parked on the street and a pick up truck backed into the front hence the slightly warped hood. Not to worry though... The car comes with a replacement hood if you want it.
