There aren’t very many of these Saab 99s on the market, and the price makes it a bit more appealing. That said, this car does need quite a bit of work.
If you’re looking at this 1974 Saab 99 LE and thinking to yourself, “I’ve gotta have it,” you should know that, at the very least, it needs the motor replaced (maybe a b207 swap candidate?) and some rust repair. But if you have the resources to do your own bodywork, and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, it could be a cheap way to get into a classic Saab.
Compared to an allegedly pristine ’72 99 with 42,000 original miles listed here, which has a price tag of $5,900, we think the asking price of $1,000 for this ’74 model is fair and reflects the condition of the car. The ad states that the seller purchased the car from the original owners son, and that he/she has all the records for it, including the original bill of sale.
Personally, I’d love to have it, but I’ve already got enough to do in the garage as it is. What are your thoughts given the condition and rarity of this Saab 99? Let us know by responding to the poll below.
