1971 Saab 99 2-door - 1709cc with only 79k miles from new - immaculate condition.
Owned by the same family since new, it has only two owners (father and then son) and was originally bought from Crossflags garage in Dumfries, at the time owned by Bert McNish and was the first Saab he sold from that dealership.
Inside and out the car is immaculate, there is no rust, the car has never been welded, all the chrome is bright and without pitting and the interior trim is similarly unmarked; taut and in a very nice shade of red contrasting with dove grey exterior. Everything in the car works including the period radio, heater controls, wipers, indicators, lights etc. We replaced the dash top as the vinyl had shrunk and rippled with age. Being a 1709cc car the gearbox is fitted with a freewheel which engages and disengages as it should when operated from the centre console. The glass is all original with period etchings and the rear seat back has the rotary knob intact (they often break or are missing) enabling it to be lowered to allow larger loads.
Mechanically the car is spot on; we have replaced the clutch master, clutch slave and clutch pipe, replaced the headgasket and thermostat as a matter of course, fitted new fuel lines and performed a full service on the vehicle including all filters, plugs, leads, drive belt etc - the car has a years MOT with no advisories even though it is not required. It has also been fully waxoiled.
We would be confident that you will not find a better example of an early 99; it is a genuine car that has been looked after by the previous owners and will prove a reliable vehicle for both daily or occasional use.
As with all of our sales cars, it comes with a 3-month bumper to bumper warranty - details upon request.

I looked for a long time for the right 99 for me. And this one I found after many months of searching. It has had 3 owners and is the 2 litre later 74 model. It has an indicated 33000 miles and only 3 owners. When I found it , it was covered in blankets and obviously cosseted. It has never been nor need to be restored
