THE SAAB 900

Based on the previous SAAB 99's chassis with an extended front end to meet recently imposed impact regulations, the 900 was first produced in 1978 and would prove to be the Swedish brand's most popular vehicle to date. Retaining the drivetrain layout of its predecessor, its unconventional longitudinally mounted inline 4-cylinder motor sent its power out towards the front of the car and into a transaxle mounted directly below the engine. The powerplant would continue to gain features over the production run eventually gaining two camshafts, 16 valves, and a turbo charger in the top models. An ever-expanding lineup of body styles would also be introduced with the convertible hitting the scene in 1986 after demand rose for such a vehicle in the U.S. market.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Delivered new to Florida, this SAAB 900 Turbo Convertible has traveled less than 50,000 miles over its 30-year existence- low miles in the world of Swedish automobiles. Despite its limited use, the car has not been neglected, and today is in fine working order. The motor pulls strong and the transmission shifts into gear with authority. One exception is the convertible top, which no longer self retracts. However, one can easily move it between its two position with great ease. After having sat in the southern sun, the exterior plastics have experienced some fade along with some discoloration to the leather interior. That being said, the vehicle is solid and the interior shows little signs of hard use outside of the sun exposure. Of further note, the car comes with a clean CARFAX.

The perfect car to load up with friends and bring to the beach, this 900 is ready to use. Coming from the world of early forced induction, the turbo delivers its power in a satisfying wave making for an entertaining driving experience. For those looking to recreate the lifestyle of a 1980s yuppie, look no further.
