An excellent example of an unspoilt Saab 99GL that has only had two previous long term owners from new, although the d. v. l. a kindly added a third during recent reclassification as Historic, so no road tax and very low insurance costs . The Saab was fully recommissioned last year at considerable expenditure including a new clutch. Invoices detailing the work done and a nice history accompany the car which spent almost 40 years in Aberdeenshire.
The car has an m. o. t until October even though not required and the tabs mentioned have been corrected.
It has never been welded and does not require any. There is some historical surface rust touched in by the elderly owner on the passenger door and some beneath the rubbing strip on the offside quarter and also just beneath the drivers door and the paintwork would benefit from a buffing. Essentially the car is structurally sound which is very unusual for a 99 that is forty years old and a testament to build quality and. the pleasure of shutting a door or the boot so reassuringly.
The interior was protected by seat covers and overmats and remains in excellent unfaded condition and the dashboard has no cracks. All the glass is original as is the radio and rare genuine ribbed Saab carpet mats front and rear there is very minor sagging at the rear of the clean headlining common on 99's.
The car starts well first time from cold and is running well on premium fuel.
This is my first Saab, and if you've never driven one, the cabin is a very cosy place to be, extremely comfortable seats and a great view through the cockpit inspired windscreen. They feel very sure footed and safe and remind me of my first experience of a Saab, a ride in a 9000 Carlson back in the day when it was new.
This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to do some paint rectification or not, and just drive and improve. A great starting point for something very quirky and only 54 GL's still on the road according to the d. v. l. a. still has the original Adrian Smith number plates, tax disc holder and rear window sticker and the original touch up stick. The colour is cream but c and c wouldn't edit this.
I am open to offers very close to the asking price after a viewing.
Sensible questions on specifics not covered in the Ad are welcome.
Genuine enquiries only please.
Collection Stafford area.
The car is garaged and the V5 in my name.
