A good friend of mine sadly has to sell his low mileage 900 Ruby Edition. It had previously been listed and sold on Ebay but the buyer then declined the purchase due to not having the money to buy it!! It is now relisted but with only 20 hours left to go!
I am mentioning it here because it is a fantastic opportunity to own what is fast becoming a sought after model and hope it can be purchased by somebody within our community or a Saab fan who will cherish it as it so deserves.
I originally sold this car brand new from the dealership I worked at to a chemist who sadly died. His wife then kept the car in the garage for many years until she then sold it to my friend who coincidentally was also a salesman at the same dealership.
The time has now come for it to find it’s third loving home. The car can be found on eBay (see details below) but only has 20 hours to run (at time of writing). Apologies for the short notice but I have only just found out about it being relisted.
Only available in the UK, the Ruby had the 185 bhp (138 kW; 188 PS) ‘Carlsson’ engine but no body kit. All were in ‘Ruby’ Red and can be distinguished from other 900s by the colour-coded bumpers and grey (rather than silver) alloy wheels. They also had the unique air-conditioned interior of buffalo leather with Zegna pure wool inserts in the seats and door panels. There were 150 examples and were the last classic style 900s sold in the UK.
This example for sale is a genuine 2 owner car with only 69,000 miles on the clock from new and has a full Saab main dealer service history.
It is in fantastic condition as you would expect and has 4 new tyres, also new brakes and discs all round.
It also drives perfectly to match its condition.
This has to be the best example of a classic Saab 900 Ruby available in the UK at this moment, this is indeed a great investment opportunity for somebody to own a piece of motoring history.
If any of you purchase it please let me know. Incidentally it is listed on eBay as a T16s which of course is incorrect.
