A20 KFS
First registered 12.06.1987 by Astley Saab. Specified with the options of full
leather interior, cruise control, electric heated seats and 4 electric windows.
This a 3-owner car and has been in long term ownership for many years all of its
keepers, the most recent owner for 5 years and prior to that over 20 years. The
last 2 keepers have been members of the Saab owners club. This Saab is as tidy
underside as it is on the top.

A proper 900 Turbo has a life of its own, only a Saab enthusiast would
understand, some may hate it or at best not get it. For me its a piece of
automotive history representing the best of the 90s and perhaps outwith
that something better inside us all, from a Golden age where every
manufacturers models had a high degree of personality and individuality
that was instantly recognizable. Driving it today it draws supreme admiration,
thumbs up, lights flashing, pictures and videos being taken and social media
posting, its not like a new Porsche where you are sneered at, lip reading
obscenities along the way, guaranteed to get let out every junction with a
smile and a wave.

Setting this car apart is its original unaltered condition, this is not a
restored Saab, nor does it require any restoration work, its an original
survivor that has been extremely well maintained and as such been spared
the ravages of time. The knowledgeable owners have taken precautions applying
a proactive approach to ownership, servicing and preservation. The images of
which there are many should speak a thousand words.

Two original keys with dealer supplied keyrings, full toolkit and spare,
all manufacturers labels are present and correct, all as the car left the
factory with no compromises. Hard plastic fitted branded plastic mats
protect the carpets front to rear.

The Saab 900 Cult
The classic world is at last waking up to the classic Saab, like all the real
Saab's its as timeless now as it was then, and they were the real deal. Classic
cars come and go but the appeal of some remains constant and none more
so than the 900 - the last real Saab say some of the marque's cognoscenti.
Think of it as a time-warped Sixties swinger but with MTV street cred and a
style and look that was as unique as Citroen's. All of which is why the last
Saab 900 - manufactured until 1993 - became an instant classic upon its
demise, and remains a sought after though little remembered classic as
yet, though time has a habit of changing things.

Owning a classic model Saab 900 is an easy way to being different and this modern
classic is one that anyone would be deeply proud to be the next custodian, its
ready to be used and enjoyed and stored with sympathy, and would be the envy
of any Saab show it entered. With values of young timer Fords Vauxhalls Mercs
and BMWs rising, this is a bit different and is a model that has a proper depth
to the build quality and engineering, one of the coolest cult cars ever made.

Servicing & Recent Expenditure £4729 Of Recent Bills

Body
As unmarked as it is remarkable. The paint retains a deep glossy shine and is in
superb condition all around and looking to be factory original. On close inspection
there are no negatives to be found with only a few discreet blemishes that have
been touched in. All of the panels are nice and straight, lining up as they should,
with all lenses remaining free from any cracks or moisture. Presents like a
far younger car with a true depth to paint, currently detailed to a very high
standard with all the lines angles and quirks of the 900 surely looking
superb in flat Black. Areas of improvement are the alloys have some marks,
though has matching Hankook tyres on the front and Vredsteins on the rear, all
thick with tread. The drivers mirror has a chunk missing from the plastic
casing which is easily replaced, the glass is fine and the mirror works
properly, everything as tested works without issue.

Cabin
The interior of the 900 is awash with period leather, emitting an unforgettable
aroma that takes you back in time. The chairs remain in excellent condition with
just a hint of patina, and supportive in a way seats will never be again. The
rear seats look unused and the headlining is perfect. The A1 condition continues
to the door cards, along the bottoms of the doors, the door shuts and A and B
posts, along the dashboard, and all the rubbers none of which shows signs of
age or damage. The centre console is the same, with no wear to any buttons or
knobs. The carpets throughout remain clean and tidy and unspoiled.

The mohair hood (recently replaced with receipt) folds electrically in a matter
of seconds and folds back up with equal pace. It’s in first class condition with
a proper rear glass screen that is heated.

Engine
The engine bay presents remarkably well and is consistent with a car having
been extremely well cared for. Unsurprisingly the 5 speed transmission shifts
through the gears with ease and there are no shortcomings with anything, its
an utter joy. The underside is dry and well protected, the car has never had
any welding.

Saab Innovation
Things like the world's first side impact bars, the first pollen and pollution
filter for the cabin air system, and windscreen pillars made of 2.5mm rolled
steel, were all unique Saab traits. Lift up the carpet and you will find box
section steel beams like no other car, reinforcing the floor. The 900 was so
far ahead in safety terms at its 1979 launch that it stayed safe until its
discontinuation in 1993 after nearly a million cars were made. Driving the
Saab 900 is a world away from today's flat-screened greenhouses. You sit
deep behind a unique curved windscreen with a dashboard that rolls away
for acres. The windscreen is slot-like and your knees go under the
fascia - not over it. It is more like sitting in a deep Victorian cast
iron bath.

Remember you get what you pay for in life, the quality of this 900 will
remain long after the price has been forgotten. Investment wise this is
easily tipped as a model that will multiply in value in coming years,
think about it..
