This would be soooooo cool.
The story in TTELA is that of Johan Josefsson. Aside from being the tech guy who helped out the Saabs United Historic Rally Team in the Midnight Sun rally last year, his primary claim to fame is a beautiful orange Saab 99 service vehicle and a collection of other Saabs.
TTELA asked him about one very special part of that collection, which sounds like a relatively recent acquisition, too.
This silver Sonett II is not just one of the incredibly rare two-strokers, it was previously owned by Erik Carlsson himself!
And how did they find this out? Well, Josefsson is apparently one of those true Saab geeks, and he knew the chassis number of Erik’s car. Carlsson later confirmed it and signed the vehicle for him last summer 🙂
The car still needs a restoration, but is a treasure just as it is.
Click the link above and do a Googletrans. It’s well worth the effort.
Thanks to Tomas for the tip!
