"An object that can easily be put back on the road with some basic work, but requires significant effort if you wish to showcase it in exhibitions."


A Turbo classic that now needs a review and upgrade to get back on the road again. A lot has been done, but time and other engagements make the current owner hand over the completion to a new owner.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The car has had some work done, such as a replacement five-speed gearbox, clutch, cylinder head gasket, injectors, cables, distributor cap, ignition coil, air and fuel filters. However, during the photo and inspection for sale, it was acting up, but according to the owner, the issue has now been fixed. It was a back valve that was incorrectly installed. The car has been sitting for some time, so a thorough check-up is needed.

  • Interior condition:

    The carpets and interior are dirty but complete, with some wear on the driver's seat. There is a newer headliner, and the driver's door panel is incomplete, with speaker holes. The dashboard is in original condition, and a radio console is included.

  • Exterior condition:

    The car has been repainted a few years ago, and it looks decent, but there is some color difference on the driver's door. There are several defects and details that need to be addressed and completed. The trunk is missing a lining. Ronal wheels that need to be renovated and new tires are included.

  • General condition:

    There are challenges, but at the same time, it is a classic with iconic status that requires dedication. The extent of the work needed is up to the new owner.

Facts about the model

Den "bredaxlade svensken" SAAB 99 började tillverkas som årsmodell 1969. En två dörrars framhjulsdriven bil med en motor om 80 hkr, året därpå kom fyra dörrar och en insprutningsmotor om 87hkr. Relativt omgående gjordes ett antal förbättring och uppgraderingar med såväl motorer som karossformer men också en hel del säkerhetsdetaljer, som fick beröm och positivt mottagande.

Det blev också motorstarkare varianter såsom EMS och LE, där framför allt EMS lanserades som en sportig familjebil med olika sportiga assessorer. År 1976 kom så bomben, Saab presenterade planer på en motor med Turboladdning.

En motor för 80-talet, skrev Teknikens Värld efter sin första test av Saab 99 Turbo 1977. Vid den här tiden var de få tillverkare av personbilar, som hade eller haft en Turbomatade variant på menyn. Pionjärerna fanns i USA med Chevrolet Corvair Monza och Oldsmobile Cutlass Jetfire under tidigt 60-tal. År 1973 kom så BMW med en prestandavagn i 2000 Turbo och året därpå Porsche 911 Turbo. Även sportbilstillverkaren TVR och Mercedes 300 TD lanserades vid den här tiden med Turbo. Kul att lilla Saab var på hugget och 1977 tagit fram en förserie om 100 bilar, i en ordinär familjevagn, med Turboladdad motor. Det föll väl ut och vips lanserade man 1978 en tvådörrars sedan och combi coupé med tilläggsepitetet TURBO. Det året tillverkades 6.672 bilar. Året därpå försvann CC-modellen och de tillverkade 1.506 bilar, för att avslutningsåret tillverka 1.363 bilar. Nu var det Saab 900 som fick ta över stafettpinnen.

Lite tävlingshistorik, premiären skedde i det Brittiska RAC-rallyt 1978, Per Eklund och Stig Blomqvist körde varsin bil. I Svenska Rallyt året därpå körde Stig Blomqvist en Saab 99 Turbo och vann. Det var första gången en turboladdad bil vann en deltävling i Rally VM, det blev inte den sista. Saab var ju lite av pionjärer med olika tekniska lösningar vid den här tiden. Nu ett ett minne blott...
