For Sale – 1991 2. 3 Saab 9000 Carlsson .

Very Very Rare - B234R 2. 3 Carlsson Model (most are 2. 0)
(only made in this shape 1990/ 1991) – 5 speed Manual Gearbox

143, 000 miles MOT expired March 22023 - but will put through if necessary as its not moved since last MOT.

Note- the car is in storage and will only be available by appointment to serious buyers (it is currently on storage wheels which can be supplied also) - but I can only access the car at certain times.

2021/ 2022 it has just had a lot of restoration work running into many thousands of pounds, (pics to prove) most of which listed below. Including virtually a full respray in original colour.
I understand its all original panels, original engine and gearbox, and was original paintwork.
It is now IMMACULATE inside and outside, and runs perfectly
It is very quick (having previously being tuned by Abbott Racing Motorsport (Saab specialist)
It holds the road superbly being fully polybushed, twin rear anti-roll bar and front strut brace and lowered on 15mm sport springs.

Everything works as it should (except fuel gauge – but the trip computer does show miles to empty)
No Service History (this was lost by previous owner – but I have knowledge of the car since 1997, and I sold it to the previous owner in about 2012 when I supplied him two folders full of documentation and service history - so I know it has been well looked after)
restorative Work Done in 2022.
