Saab was a pioneer in making turbocharged cars, and the 99 is now recognised as being one of the best of its type.
This car is a unique (to Australia) example of a two door replica of the car which Stig Blomqvist brought to Australia to compete in the 1978 Castrol International Rally.
The car was constructed to tackle the 2003 Targa Tasmania and carries extensive modifications to make it competitive and reliable. It's a lot of fun to drive and a new owner could use it for historic rallying, as a track day car or return it to road use.
As you might imagine, there's no rust and the car was treated to a full bare metal respray in Ferrari 365 red in Acran™. The photos do it great justice. Saab 99s are now very rare, and ones in good condition, like this are like hen's teeth.
It can be test driven by appointment, and I'd welcome any pre-sale mechanical evaluation.
I am selling because I can no longer compete.
