Look at this beauty.... From a time when cars were all different and turbos weren't for the masses.
Pretend you are a 1990s architect as your rock up to work everyday.
If anyone wants a starter classic car this is it, especially if they like a blue interior.
Absolute doddle to work on and prices seem to be in the ascendancy.
It's 1990 Saab 900 8v Auto.
133k miles on it
364 days mot
3 speed auto that works flawlessly
Head gasket was changed about 100 miles ago
Almost brand new tyres all round
Heater is immense
All of the normal Saab quirks like fresh air vents in centre, amazing visibility all round
Central locking (a bit temperamental)
Non leaking PAS
Keys go in central console so if you have an accident they don't stab you in the knee
Comes with full set of brake flexis, fuel filter and some injection spares.
I think there is a bag of history for it at NJGleeds garage so will chase that up
Best opening bonnet ever
Comes with an extra switch wired to turn the fan on manually if needed (also comes on automatically)
Comes with a decent stereo to listen to your jazz funk with.
Bits that need sorting
Front jacking point needs a tickle with sparkle stick - Was advisory (or whatever they are called)
Both windows won't go up that last few mm - this is a well known fault with the quadrant wearing/breaking
Sunroof drains need unclogging - I attacked it with a coat hanger but didn't really get anywhere
Headlining is droopy drawers
From stone cold you need to let it idle for a minute before touching the throttle otherwise it floods. Once up to temp it isn't any problem at all.
Rear boot lock is solid, so needs taking out and cleaning
Cl can be temperamental - I think it is a bad earth as started working when I tooted the horn
Rev counter starts working when you go over a bump
Small crack is in the bottom of the windscreen at the edge.
Dash is cracked
Door bottoms have Norwegian Chrome
As does one of the wheel arches
Boot gas struts need replacing. Comes with free broom handle to avoid noggin taps.
Missing a front headlight washer blade
Whilst that sounds a massive list I have put everything I know of on there. Most it is a case of ignore and fix in your own time. I seriously wouldnt hesitate to drive this anywhere.
