1991 SAAB 900i Classic 8 valve 2 door Low Mileage Car For Sale
Beautiful blue 900i 8 valve 5 speed manual. Last of the real Saabs (before they became Vauxhall Cavaliers) with all the quirky features unique to these models, such as the wraparound windscreen, strange window winders, unusual bonnet opening procedure and back to front engine, with its "cassette removable clutch" etc.
This car has not yet covered 66,600 miles and belonged to my former Photography teacher for several years before he finally sold it to me in his 80's. He cherished and looked after the car well, always having it serviced and repaired at a local Saab specialist garage.
I am a professional mechanic and classic car enthusiast and really appreciate these Saabs due to their mechanical and aesthetic features plus the way they drive. Since owning over the last 3 years and within the previous 500 miles I have brought the car up to scratch completing the following work myself:
Replacing the entire headlining (as with most of these cars it had ended up collapsing around your ears!)
Replacement exhaust system.
Cylinder head removed, skimmed, chemically cleaned and gaskets renewed with full engine block flush and cylinder honing, some photos to show this work are available.
New water pump, thermostat and radiator. Power steering and alternator belts.
2 replacement Bosch fuel injectors, distributor cap and rotor arm, spark plugs, filters, oil, antifreeze, temperature sensor, C.V. joint gaiters, wipers etc.
The car is fully tuned and runs and drives perfectly and obviously passed it's current MOT first time.
In terms of the cars overall condition, it has never been painted or crashed and overall the paintwork is very good considering it's 27 year vintage and due to it being a dark blue solid colour is easy to match, touch up and polishes great, with only a few minor blemishes here and there and 1 small area of corrosion on each of the rear arches about 45mm diameter. This is the only corrosion on the car which is a very minor repair and the underbody itself is rust free and solid. Front bumper has some scuffs on the corners and the chrome effect trim strips are in need of replacing.
The blue interior with automatic working heated seats is excellent and unmarked having never been smoked in (fully functioning Cigar lighter never used) also with the brand new headlining and unmarked dash/fascia. Period face off radio cassette with original fully functioning Saab automatic electric aerial. Car has it's original toolkit and unbelievably the proper red unused - yes unused - space saver spare wheel.
Any inspection of this car is welcome and if you are interested in one of these lovely Saabs you will find it difficult to find a more honest original car. At the asking price I will give a full 10 day parts and labour guarantee to cover any failures if they occur to give the buyer confidence
