SAAB 99 Turbo Recreation.

This superb recreation of the legendary 99 Turbo is an absolute credit to it's creator. It is based on the 1982 2 door SAAB 99 GL in white, It is still registered as such on the current V5.

A great deal of time, effort and money has been spent in creating this one of a kind car, with  specification as follows:

Genuine SAAB 99 Turbo 'B' series engine fitted

Genuine 99 Turbo front spoiler

Correct oil cooler mounted behind front spoiler

99 Turbo INCA Alloy wheels

Genuine SAAB 99 Turbo rear spoiler (very rare)

Genuine 99 Turbo red velour interior fitted, including front and rear seats, all door cards and carpets. All modified to fit the 1982 shell. Rear seats work/fold correctly.

Genuine 99 Turbo steering wheel

Genuine 99 Turbo-mounted boost gauge; working correctly.

New re-upholstered roof lining in correct colour and material.

Earlier headlight surrounds and grill

The car is in very good condition having been dry stored for 21 years and owned by SAAB enthusiasts.

The car further benefits from ;

a re-built SAAB 900 T16S 5 speed gear box costing well over a thousand pounds just to purchase.

A re-built SAAB T16S Turbo charger (to give better drive ability and reliability)

A T16S clutch

A lightened, balanced fly wheel

Braided stainless steel break lines

A custom made stainless steel exhaust with twin tail pipes ( hand made)

Full inspection with rustproofing throughout inside and clear rustproofing underseal to the underside of the car

NOW FOR THE BAD POINTS ( THERE HAD TO BE SOME )

During the return trip from the 2018 SAAB fest, I noticed a small and very occasional engine miss. This disappeared, so all was fine. Subsequent investigation leads me to believe that the head gasket or a piston ring has failed. The car runs and drives and doesn't expel plumes of smoke, however, the fault is there  somewhere.

This car always draws a great deal of positive attention where ever it goes, with many people stopping to chat about it in petrol stations, car shows etc. It has been a real joy and pleasure to own this vehicle as I am sure it will be to the next owner.
