Saab Pride – Nairobi 96 style

Today’s quick Saab Pride entry is a car with what’s quite possibly a very interesting history.
The current owner is a guy named Steve G and he writes as follows:
——
The car started its working life in Nairobi, East Africa in 1962 with the first registered owner being ‘SAAB’ themselves. The vehicle is in right hand drive format.
A story that comes from the son of a ex-Saab dealer from the 1960’s (one of the first registered dealers in the U.K.) is that this car was the ‘back up’ vehicle for the 1962 East African Safari rally. The cars original Nairobi registration number was KHD902 and if this story is true then being a RHD version it would probably have been for the use of Pat Moss Carlsson.
