Saab Quantum S racer for sale

For those who are looking for a Saab with a real difference…..

Via Bringatrailer:

This 1964 Quantum Formula “S” has Saab power and is one of approximately 50 kits manufactured by Quantum Motorcar Corp in 1964. These were marketed through the dealer network and the builder sourced their own Saab suspension, powertrain, and other components to complete the car. This example was brought to Anchorage, Alaska in 1969 by Brian Hall where it was very successfully auto-crossed for three years. It deteriorated after that and the current seller bought it in 2006, after 30 years of sitting in pieces, as what he calls “a rolling hulk with a few boxes of parts.” It has since been restored and is being sorted for competition (see videos). It is available in Homer, Alaska for $20k.

Looks like the owner has some other serious Saab interests, too, judging by the Sonett II in the background.

There are a bunch of videos over at Youtube as well.

GM Heritage Collection Saabs unsold

I had a few communiques with Chip Lamb from West of Sweden late last week, with regard to the Saab vehicles remaining unsold from the former GM Heritage Collection.

There were a number of vehicles bought, restored, or just kept from new by GM in their Heritage Collection that the new Saab organisation either couldn’t afford to keep and store, or didn’t think were needed to be kept outside of the Saab Museum (take your pick).

Most of those have already been sold, in some cases sold back to owners who had them before GM bought them in the first place. There are a few remaining, however.

They are listed below with brief notes from Chip, in some cases expanded a little by me:

Saab 9-3 Aero 1/400 – $30k, with virtually no miles on the clock. This is #1 of the 400 anniversary convertibles produced for the US market back in 2006.

Saab 9-7x #1 (pilot car used for auto shows et.c. – actually VINned as a ’03) – $23k

Saab 9-2x Aero – $21k – 15k miles and somewhat rough miles at that, as it was used by European Car magazine for a while.

And the party piece of the bunch…..

Saab 900 Airport Runway Friction Tester $16k ($50k restoration by GM…) – no miles since restoration

If you have any interest in one of these, contact Chip via West of Sweden.

Saab Sonett II on Ebay – rare opportunity

A Saab Sonett II is a beautiful but quite rare thing. A quick look around the internets right now tells me there’s just one for sale in the usual US-based classified sites, so this one coming up for sale – and in such good condition – presents what one might call an opportunity.

It’s not for the feint of heart however, as there’s an asking price that’s considerable compared to some other vintage Saabs. It does look to be in superb condition, though, with a genuine sounding owner who gives a pretty full description of the car and the work done.

What we have here is a 1969 Saab Sonett V4 located in Texas and restored to some level of competition specification, though apparently it has never been run competitively in any events.

You should check out the full description on Ebay but be quick, as there’s less than a day to run on the sale.

As I write this, the car is priced at just over $9K, but there’s still room for growth there as the reserve is mentioned in the sale details, at $13K.

I have no relationship with the seller. I just love Sonett II’s and think this is a cracker of a car.

Awesome Saab 900 at Blocket (with apologies to Jalopnik)

Los Jalops regularly have a feature where a somewhat distinctive car is offered for sale, but seemingly at much too steep a price.
I just couldn’t resist stealing their byline for this one, on sale at Blocket. So……..
1984 SAAB 900 FOR 150,000SEK – NICE PRICE OR CRACK PIPE??
25K900forsale.jpg
There is no doubt that this classic Saab 900 looks positively droolworthy. It is immaculate. And the addition of the later model Aero body kit on this flatnose 900 is tastefully done.
Everything works. The paint is brand new. The interior looks like it’s never been occupied. There’s a long list of all-new bits at the sale page.
But 150K? That’s $25,000 here in Australia. Almost $21,000 in the US.
Given that even the best 900s seem to go for little more than $10K here, this car would need to come with Bjorn Envall as a chauffer, wouldn’t it?
But, jeez it’s superb.
