|SAAB 900 classic 2.0T16s Carlsson.|
I have just received a guaranteed insurance valuation of £15,000 (value only increasing)
This is a very rare car and as close to original as you are likely to find.
A rare opportunity to acquire an original, unmolested, appreciating classic car with detailed service & maintenance records.
Amazing 2 previous owner fully original 900 Carlsson offered for sale. I have a comprehensive document pack including the original bill of sale and the selling dealers advertising literature.
The correct documentation is the key to authenticity, there are some pretenders out there, beware.
The previous keeper acquired the car with 10,300 miles showing on the clock, the car has now covered 104,000 miles. The comprehensive document pack includes service records from SAAB main agents, well known SAAB specialists and local independent garages. Suffice to say the vehicle has been very well cared for throughout its history. Although mechanically the vehicle is 100% as it left the factory there has been 2 significant upgrades carried out, firstly the original velour seats (as mentioned in the original advert) have been re-trimmed in grey leather, the inserts on the drivers door have also been re-trimmed to match. Secondly a genuine SAAB accessory Air Conditioning kit was fitted in 2004, all parts of the kit were new when fitted in 2004. The condition of the leather seats is still very good and the air conditioning works very well even on the rare hot summer days enjoyed in the UK!
Most recently the vehicle has benefited from a twin pipe handmade stainless steel exhaust and a full clutch, master and slave cylinder replacement.
The headlining is in good condition, the factory fitted steel sunroof panel moves smoothly, both front door electric window regulators are in good order they operate smoothly and without hesitation. The original Blaupunkt Casablanca radio cassette is still in perfect working order, the electric aerial mast extends and retracts without snagging. The interior also benefits from a perfectly fitted dash facia, all switches and controls function correctly, the signature Carlsson steering wheel is in good condition with only light wear to the outer leather rim. The original floor carpets are in good condition, the car benefits from a full set of original SAAB branded rubber floor over mats.
The original 15inch 3 spoke alloy wheels are in good condition, the vehicle benefits from a full matching set of Pirelli 195/60/15 tyres all in good condition with generous reserves of tread remaining. The vehicle has just passed an MOT with two minor advisories.
On the road the car performs and drives superbly, the engine is strong and the turbo charger still delivers a punch. The exhaust note is magnificent.The gearbox is smooth and the brakes are more than capable of bringing the car to rest from high speed without fade or judder. When manoeuvring and parking the gear box continues to work faultlessly.
Any questions regarding the vehicle or requests for further information or photographs are welcome.
