Here is my Saab 99 which I used for a couple of  years & then it has been stored inside for the past 12 years. I was the 2nd owner. It had been traded in at the local Ford garage by the elderly owner. It was good enough for the garage to have in their showroom. Before I used the car I cleaned any rust from the underneath side including above the petrol tank by removing the tank, treated with rustkiller, painted with white Smootherite and then waxoyled. The doors sills and panels were sprayed inside with waxoly. I also painted any areas needing treatment in the boot. I have tried to show the benefits of this in the pictures. There is a picture of the boot with the carpet removed and two of the engine bay. The picture of the top of the mudguard shows an area I cleaned with a rag and underneath the waxoyl it can be seen how well it has been preserved. If I were going to keep the car I would do it again as on the underside of the body the rust is now starting to come back. 

It has been started a few times in the past twelve years. When I recently started it, after just a few seconds to pump fuel into the engine it started straight away and ran well but with being stood I would replace the ignition points before using it.

Everything mechanical and electrical works on the car and it is all original except for a face removeable type Sony radio/cassette. The previous owner did not have a radio fitted. So as not to cut into the door panels I fitted the speakers in the footwells.

The wheel trims are Saab wheel trims but if anyone wanted the original looking wheels the aluminium wheel centres that cover the centre of the wheels are present under the wheel trims but the wheels are rusty and would need cleaning and painting.

The seats are of a high quality soft to touch velour material and are in unmarked condition.  The carpets show no wear but could do with a good shampoo and clean. The headlining is coming away from the roof in an area in the rear of the car which is shown in a picture.  

The car was reliable when I used it. The only major spare part I had fitted was a new Brake Servo. The car drives but will require the brakes stripping and servicing as the pads are binding on the discs with being stood. There is no MOT on the car and it would need to be trailered away.

The wheels on the front are slightly narrower than the rears. This is how I used the car but if to use it again I would replace the front wheel rims to match the back. From time to time these wheel rims do come up on Ebay for often little money. The tyres on the rear are size 175 x 15 and the front 165 x 15. The tyres fitted on the front are snow tyres and and are not half worn but after been stood for twelve years it will need a new set of tyres to be safe.

There are a few areas showing signs of rust on the car, the worst of which are two areas on the front edge of the bonnet which are visible on the picture of the front of the car. They are not holes and the inside of the bonnet is sound but I would have these treated before they get worse. The other lesser areas of rust are typlical of what is shown on the picture of the inside of the door.

The car is twenty nine years old and is eligible for comprehensive classic car insurance at about £100 per year.

Thre are some spare wheel trims, a headlight and headlight washer motor which I kept as spres but did not need. There is also a Haynes manual.   

I have tried to give a fair assessment of the car showing its good points and bad. To summarise it is a very sound original car with no need for any welding to the body or neither does it need any upholstery work. The doors boot and bonnet close well and ther is no evidence of it ever been in an accident.  The paintwork does polish up well but please bear in mind the car is nearly 30 years and does show some signs of ageing and will require some work to put it back on the road. If your thing is showing then with a little work and not too much time, this car would be quite respectable and able to be exhibited in car shows this year.

The car would need to be trailered away and I would prefer cash on collection.  


On 13-May-12 at 13:19:25 BST, seller added the following information:

I have had a lot of questions regards why it does not have an MOT and why I advised it is trailered away. As no bids have been made I have decided to end the listing. If at a later date I decide to sell it the car will have an MOT.
