"A renovated Sonett in excellent condition."


This car was restored by a former Saab development department technician. He has set a higher standard for this Sonnet, making it a little better and more like it should have been from the start. The 1.7-liter engine has been rebuilt and balanced. New pistons, valves, and a ported top.  A sharper 7.2 camshaft and a Weber 32/32 carburettor were installed. The gearbox in the car was built by Saab's gearbox factory in Gothenburg. New exhaust system designed and built in-house. The electrical systems have been mostly replaced and are brand new. All the floors, luggage, and sills were replaced and reinforced. The suspension, dampers, and braking system are all brand new. The body is butterscotch yellow with black highlights on the hood and back stem. Saab Ronal rims in steel Gray metallic. The interior was recently refitted, roller seat belts were installed, and the original steering wheel is still available.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
