Purchased as a usable project by Classics World magazine, this 1989 Saab 900 T16 Turbo has seen extensive works undertaken while in their custodianship and won many a heart and mind on various features and road trips undertaken by the editorial team.
Jobs tackled during their tenure include new brake pads, new radiator, new fan assembly, new water pump, new dash and interior lights, new inlet manifold gaskets, a full set of boost pipes along side a full service and four new Toyo Proxes tyres. The car also saw some attention to the usual 900 corrosion areas.
Finished in desirable black with tan leather and black hood, this manual transmission example is understood to run and drive well, the electric hood working as it should as with the windows and heated seats.
The car was recently used on a feature which saw a 500 mile jaunt from the mag’s head office in Peterborough to Scotland around the ‘North Coast 500’ route, more than proving the car’s long distance agility. With just over 160,000 miles recorded this Saab is barely worn in - in Saab terms – don’t forget the famous Million Mile Saab; bought back by the Saab factory from its original owner as a testament to their reliability.
Understood to present well with little attention required to make into a really tidy car, it comes with a good history file and an MOT until June 2020 with no advisories and is ready to be enjoyed. We like these a lot here – which may be something to do with the Nordic heritage of the cataloguer, but at No Reserve, nobody can deny it represents something of an exciting opportunity.
