Bilturist i Storbritannien (1959)
While checking my twitter feed this morning I came across a video posted by @skandix of a couple taking a driving holiday in the UK in a Saab 93. You see the 93 being loaded onto the ferry in Norway and then the tour itself. A saab 93 must have been a very rare sight in those days.
I’ve put a direct link to the website where you can see the video in all its glory here
A big thank you to Svenska Filminstitutet for sharing this wonderful film.

Nice video, worth watching. I’ve seen it before; maybe even through SaabsUnited (long ago).
Ah, yes: June 28th, 2011
Coming from the Highlands I loved seeing Inverness and environs in the year before I was born…but I am VERY suspicious of those “Central Casting Department” shepherds in kilts! I’ve never seen a shepherd – or any working Scot – dressed like that in my life!
Loved the 93 though. Could almost smell the miasma of 2-stroke drifting in the Highland air…
Wow! That was a wonderful piece of history. Thank you for sharing it. I actually own a 93b from 1959. Same original colour (now painted a lighter blue by previous owner) and interior as the one in the clip. What if…it is…my car? Does anyone know if it is possible to trace the old registration-number to the new system somehow? Unfortunately no documentation about that came with the car.
Wow…nice travelog! Lots of neat old (now) cars. That Scottish tea warmer was also quite interesting! never before seen such a bright & shiny 93!
Proves who really looks at the forum, doesn’t it? I posted this almost a year ago
Never mind, Robin.
As it happens I’m not a forum person, I did not see your link.
Even after Ralph wrote what he wrote, I thought “well there must be a few like me who missed it first time around” and decided to leave it there for others to see.
Good things like this are worth watching over and over again! =)
I had also missed it :/
There’s always something that was missed the first time around that the eye catches when watching something like this again.
Whole heartedly agree. This is simply a gem of a film.
Thank you for this wonderful film; it was nice to see it again…
