Two Stroke to Turbo purchased this Saab on 28/ 02/ 2001 with only 49, 782 miles on the clock. The car was in very good original condition with good history. The car was owned by a lady customer of SAAB Wimbledon the suppling dealer, they took the car in on a part exchange against a new Saab convertible. It was Fully recommissioned before being used as a company car by myself the father of the owner of Two stroke to Turbo. The car could not want for anything during this time and was upgraded and fully resprayed by SAAB Wimbledon’s official approved body shop using the highest quality paints. When I retired, I purchased the Saab from Two Stroke To Turbo. During my ownership of the car it has always been garaged under the house in a dry and warm environment, only coming out on the best days. I have deciding to stop driving it and have had many years of enjoyment with the car, cruising around the country lanes with the hood down. The car was also featured in ‘For The Love of Cars’ on TV and has been put through its paces by testing at Millbrook proving ground. - details above

Vehicle History:

One owner from new. Initially a company car and then transferred to private ownership to the same owner on 04/ 03/ 1993 until 28/ 01/ 2001 when it was part exchanged at Saab Wimbledon.

Purchased from SAAB Wimbledon 49, 937 miles 28/ 02/ 2001.

Re-sprayed at Saab Wimbledon, body kit refurbished, comprehensively wax-oil injected throughout the cavities and a new hood was fitted. All the minor imperfections on the panel work were dealt with by Dent Master so the minimum skim of filler was required. The finish to the black paint is to a very high standard, almost blemish free. The costs exceeded £7500. 00 as all the fittings were removed as well as the front screen to paint the inner screen surrounds, the bumpers and full body kit were also fully stripped and repainted in original graphite grey, at a cost of £500. 00. A full new mohair original canvas hood including the rear window section was fitted for £1400. 00. The interior leather was treated with a full leather conditioner to clean repair and soften the leather any marks were painted in using Bradley’s leather repair system. £250. 00. New Alloy wheels were fitted, original Accessory alloys deep dish 16” Aero with polished alloy edges and graphite grey centres £1000. 00. The engine and gear box were removed and fully resealed and refitted.

It became a Two-stroke company car for me and I still had another modern company car for daily use (a new Saab 9000 CD) - since this work was carried out it has only covered 21, 000 miles approximately.

I took over official ownership 15/ 04/ 2005 when I retired.

MOTd and serviced throughout my ownership yearly, other maintenance carried out is listed below.
