pics of a pristine 1984 99 Gl in the UK!

[ Copied from my thread at CCSW ... ]

Just recently on Ebay there has been a 1984 Saab 99 GL for sale on Ebay UK. It's a pristine car, owned almost the whole time by the Netherlands Embassy in London!

We've never had 99's in Australia later than 1978 I believe, so to actually see pictures of an almost-showroom-condition last-production-year 99 is quite unique! Check them out in this album.

Regards,

Craig.

no, the 90's were really odd. basically I think it was saab trying to use up extra parts. the 90 is a 99 front end, with a 900 notchback/sedan rear end. really odd cars.

It does appear strange, but at the same time, in great condition.

Yep only a small number (25378 total) were made, and they were only produced between 1985 and 1987, and only sold in Europe! That makes them uber-rare indeed.

I've assembled a growing collection of pics of the Saab 90. I actually think they're quite a neat looking design. To the eye, the combination of Saab 99 front and a Saab 900 2-door sedan body works very well. Imagine a modified turbo version - I bet some people have done that to their 90's.

If I was able to import one to Australia it would be one of the most unique Saab's in the country! Not that I've got resources to do that sort of thing, though if a 90 is superb condition was to miraculously appear on the market, who knows...

Craig.
