I don’t do ‘for sale’ items here very often. When I do, it’s usually because there’s something special about the car on offer (and no, I don’t receive any sort of commission for publicising any cars that come up for sale).
As mentioned in the headline, this particular car is indeed pretty special.
First, it’s a Viggen – a Lightning Blue 3-door (my favourite kind 🙂 )
Second, it’s the Viggen formerly housed in the GM Heritage Collection, which gives it a very collectable air.
Third, it’s prbably the closest to a brand new Viggen that you’ll ever get in 2011 or any time afterwards. This one’s still got less than 1,000 miles on the clock.
The car is being sold on Ebay by Chip Lamb, a guy who’s name should be familiar to most Saab fans in the US, especially those of the vintage variety (the Saabs, not the fans).
The car may also be familiar to a number of you, especially if you’ve attended a Saab Owners Convention in the last few years, when cars from the heritage collection have been present…..
The car has taken a slightly convoluted path into Chip’s garage, which he describes fully in the advertisement.
The photos of the car are a very good testament to it’s original condition. I’m sure everyone’s familiar with the ease with which Saab seats develop bum-prints. Well, have a look at these babies… flat as an ironing board.
The asking price isn’t cheap, but then again this is a very rare opportunity to pick up a classic Saab that’s virtually brand new.
Geez, I love me a good Viggen.
