Description

THIS IS A ULEZ EXEMPT CORRECTLY HISTORICALLY REGISTERED 1981 SAAB 900 GLS 2000cc THREE DOOR COUPE
TWIN CARBURETTOR, TWIN BONNET VENT AUTOMATIC WITH A FACTORY FITTED SLIDING SUNROOF, IT HAS LOTS OF HISTORY ESPECIALLY THE LAST TWO YEARS. IT HAS THREE PREVIOUS OWNERS FROM NEW AND I’VE OWNED IT FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS WHERE ABSOLUTELY NO EXPENSE HAS BEEN SPARED, I WANTED THIS CAR BECAUSE IT IS BEAUTIFUL WITH A CORROSION FREE BODY AND UNMARKED ORIGINAL INTERIOR AND I DIDN’T MIND ONE BIT SPENDING MONEY ON IT. THIS SAAB DRIVES BEAUTIFULLY HOT OR COLD AND IS LITERALLY TURN KEY READY DUE TO BEING MADE COMPLETELY RELIABLE BY ME AND PROBABLY THE COUNTRIES LEADING SAAB SPECIALIST. THIS VERY RARE MACHINE HAS NEVER BEEN INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT ALL THE PANELS ARE COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AS IS THE GLASS APART FROM THE NEW WINDSCREEN AND CHROME TRIMS FITTED IN FEBRUARY. ALL THE ELECTRICS WORK AS DOES THE VACUUM CONTROLLED HEATING SYSTEM, EVERY LIGHT BULB WORKS IN DASH AND ALSO THE FRONT REVERSE LIGHTS. A COUPLE OF NOTEWORTHY POINTS TO ADD IS THAT IT HAS THE CHARMING EARLY TYPE SEAT BELT LATCHES AND THE NON PLASTIC STAND ALONE DOOR MIRRORS OF WHICH I’VE NEVER SEEN ON ANOTHER 900 CERTAINLY NOT IN RECENT YEARS.
THE PERIOD CHROME HUB CAPS ARE IN GREAT SHAPE AND SECURELY ATTACHED WITH THE ORIGINAL FASTNERS. IN THE LAST TWO YEARS THIS SAAB HAS UNDERGONE A VAST AMOUNT OF MAINTENANCE AND WORK CARRIED OUT TO MAKE IT COMPLETELY RELIABLE AND A PLEASURE TO DRIVE. MOST OF THE MECHANICAL WORK HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT BY TWO STROKE TO TURBO IN BASSINGBOURN ROYSTON WHO I’VE KNOWN FOR MANY YEARS. DUE TO THEIR VAST EXPERTISE KNOWLEDGE AND ACCESS TO ON PREMISES PARTS IT WAS THE NATURAL CHOICE FOR ME. WORK CARRIED OUT BUT NOT LIMITED TO….
