1990 Saab 900 Injection

Description

1990 Saab 900 Injection

3 door hatchback 16 valve injection, fitted leather seats & extensively reconditioned by our vendor.

A photographic record of rebuild on memory stick is in the vehicles history folder. 

Then current vendor has supplied the following information...

'We purchased the car in December 2013 and have covered 3,000 miles in 3 and half years.  The car is fitted with the rare whale tail spoiler costing a considerable sum!

In December 2015 the car was stolen from our garage but fortunately recovered by the police the same week. The insurer 'Hagerty' declined to repair and paid out the full agreed value. 

We immediately purchased the car back and had it repaired. 

This has left an insurance 'Cat C' marker on the DVLA file. 

The car had an oil service on February of this year and a MOT valid to 23/2/18 (no advisories). A five speed gear box reconditioned by Saab Specialist 'Two stroke to Turbo' was also then fitted at a total cost of £1,500.00'

The following is a Description by the previous owner in November 2013.

"My father and I purchased this Saab from a lady whose father owned the car until his passing away, the lady then ran the car herself for a while until she decided to emigrate and we bought the car from her in 2007. The car was very straight and original but needed a bit of TLC. We planned to do only minor work to the car, but once we started we got carried away! Resulting in most parts being removed, cleaned, stripped and painted. We have both had Saabs in the past and are very passionate about them We started by removing the front suspension, engine and gearbox, all parts were shot blasted and painted then refitted using all new parts where necessary including new springs and shocks. The rear axle was removed and again shot blasted and painted and refitted with new springs and shocks, and all exposed brake lines replaced including flex. The brake callipers front and rear where re-furbished - painted and fitted back to the car using new disks, pads and stainless braided hoses. Our attention then turned to the bodywork, we had already gone way further than intended, so decided to keep going! We removed everything from the car, bumpers, glass, lights etc. and the car went to a local body shop, for a full repaint, in straight black gloss and lacquer at great expense! The rubber bumpers were painted in the body shop satin black and look far better than new. The interior is black leather. The headlining (which can be a problem with these cars) was removed, went to a local car trimmer and professionally recovered, as was the rear parcel shelf. Super Aero deep dish alloys were bought for the car and sent off to Metal Magic to be stripped and powder coated, and fitted with new Pirelli tyres. The underside of the car was painted. All the cavities wax oiled, a new custom mild steel exhaust was then fitted. The car was finally put back on the road in June 2012 and only used on sunny days and taken to local car shows, we took the car off the road for winter, which it spent in a heated garage. It gets a lot of attention and always puts a smile on your face”.

Hopefully all this will enable you to build a picture of the car we have here for sale.
