Lot 147 – Saab 900i “Classic” Convertible 1990
Estimated Value : £2,750 – £4,000
According to various magazines and car shows, these classic shaped Saab 900’s are the ones to buy now, especially the convertibles. Prices are on the up with the wise investors out there buying good ones at a rate of knots.
This very nice Saab 900i Convertible comes from a Saab collector’s stable of 7 Saabs which due to room restraints, he is now having to “rationalise”. First registered in March 1990 it has had 3 former keepers and has a fully documented history showing the 144,064 miles recorded on the clock to be correct. Its “massive and comprehensive” service and workshop file shows its last service was carried out in February 2016 at 142,655 miles so not due another for a while.
The bright red bodywork is generally excellent with just the odd spot of corrosion beginning to show, nothing that detracts from the overall appearance but something the vendor wanted to point out. The soft top hood is like new and the alloy wheels are in fine fettle with nearly new tyres all round.
The red with grey velour interior is in excellent conditon throughout, no tears or stains. The seats are fully operational and what is worth noting is that unlike most 900’s of this era, the dash is not cracked!
The 1985cc Fuel Injected motor starts on the button and the 5 speed manual gearbox and clutch are in very good order. This car drives very well on the road and with its current MOT through to 4th of August is ready to be used and enjoyed by its new owner.
