1970 Saab 95 description

Up for sale is this very nice 1970 Saab 95 two door sports wagon. This is a 99% rust free, always garaged, car owned by a Swedish car enthusiast and collector (this is one of two 1970 Saab 95's that I currently have in my collection). The very low 89,855 miles on the clock are believed to be original as per prior owner who purchased the car from the gentlemen who did the restoration in the 1990's.
As some Saab fans know, a recent auction of a 1969 Saab V4 wagon, not much nicer than this one, sold for $32,000 in an auction on BringaTrailer.com. These wagons are ultra-rare in any condition and this is one of the nicer ones.
The restoration was completed in the 1990's and has had very little actual driving or wear since. The restoration included a respray of the original Saab white paint color, along with new black leather seating surfaces, door panels and carpet. I'm not sure if the headliner was also done at this time but it is like new (see photo). All glass is excellent, however there is a vertical crack in the front windshield almost dead center (see photo) that hasn't grown or expanded in many years. The front seats are slightly loose in their tracks and need adjustment. They do slide forward and back and stay in place. Original front seat belts are in the car. All gauges work except for the clock. An extra special feature... the car is equipped with a very expensive and super rare Nardi steering wheel with Saab horn button (Nardi is engraved into the chrome). I've seen these Nardi Saab steering wheels occasionally for sale online for over $1,000.
The car was tuned up less than 300 miles ago by my mechanic and the V4 engine with dual carbs starts up and runs as it should. The 4-speed on the column transmission shifts correctly and drives well. The exhaust and muffler was replaced less than 1,000 miles ago. The previous owner also removed the engine and cleaned the engine bay, replacing all the engine seals before reinstalling. I have no leaks anywhere worth mentioning and no measurable oil consumption while driving. The free-wheel is locked out but it was never really needed once Saab switched from the old 2-strokes to the reliable V4 engines. There's a switch on the transmission that could re-engage the free-wheel but I've never attempted to do so. A previous owner removed the hood release pull from inside the car and a small release latch was relocated to the front grill (see photo- it's actually much more convenient). The spare tire is located (with cover) underneath the rear seat. The original radio was replaced with a 1990's vintage Kenwood am/fm cassette stereo and rear door panel mounted speakers.
Tires look like they have 85% tread or more. Included are original Saab logo hub caps in nice shape with chrome trim rings.
There is minor bubbling under the paint in a couple of small areas along the door bottom edges and on a small spot of one rear side roof panel- both areas are isolated, contained and nothing has come through the paint (photos of all three spots are shown). There are no real scratches or dings to speak of- look at the photos's... the paint shines! There was a minor dent in the passenger front fender that was repaired by the previous owner and that panel was repainted after the repair. Chrome is good with aging in places. The underside is completely solid and appears to have been undercoated during the restoration.
The photos were taken on 8/6/2016 or 8/14/2016.
All in all this is a very nice, better than driver quality, car that will get lots of attention at your next local car show. I can also almost guarantee you will never see another one coming the other way. Questions? Email me through Ebay and I will respond within 24 hours, usually sooner. Also offered for sale locally and on various classic car websites so the listing may be ended at any time.
I'm located near Charlottesville, Va., 2 hours southwest of Washington D.C. and an hour west of Richmond. I would have no hesitancy driving this car hundreds of miles back home BUT, since the car is, after all, 46 years old, I would recommend a trailer or having it shipped if you live any farther than that. If you're more adventuresome, go for it. If you ship, I'm happy to assist loading with your shipper. Local inspections by appointment. Thanks for looking.
