Been following since auctioned in Scotland and what it sold for. I think ?3000 extra is a good days turn over. I came down to the South of England In 1993 In a black 99 and I wish I still had it. Ive never seen a none turbo in black. It was cool then. Max maxine bradshaw (from farnham, surrey) offered 12000 gbp

Headlight wipers. Self-repairing bumpers. Clock. Interior lighting. Kenwood CD player. Lockable glove compartment. Heated rear window. Cigarette lighter. Front and rear mudflaps. Spare wheel. Spare key.

The bright silver metallic paintwork on the Saab remains to an incredibly high standard and has a wonderful. glass-like finish. The bodywork is near impeccable with only one or two very minor imperfections to note. chiefly a couple of light indentations to the roof on the passenger side.

What really sets this car apart is the largely original bodywork. which remains solid and corrosion-free. Along both sides the car is arrow-straight. and aside from a single protective wheel arch strip. all black trim and rubber seals appear in very good health indeed. All lenses are perfectly clear and free from any chips or cracks. and the additional spotlamps present as new.

Much like the exterior. the inside of the Saab is in true time-warp condition. All seats remain very supportive displaying absolutely no signs of any wear. and the pale blue velour in which they are upholstered is quite simply stunning. The addition of the Moto-Lita leather steering wheel is a nice period touch.

Furthermore. the dash and fascia present as new with no signs of ageing to any of the components. including the wood-effect inlays. The large dials are crystal clear. and the freshness of the carpets is bettered only by the impeccable door cards. In fact. aside from a minor split in the headlining on the nearside rear pillar. the interior is flawless.

Lifting the large bonnet reveals a very bright engine bay indeed. Consistent with a much younger vehicle with even fewer miles. the engine presents in fantastic order. The majority of the components appear factory-fresh. and the polished rocker cover retains a great shine. Furthermore the inner panels remain completely solid.

The two-litre engine. mounted at 45 degrees. benefits from the fitment of twin Weber carburettors. Professionally installed in 2010 at a cost of nearly £2. 00. the upgrade provides additional horsepower and an improved burst of acceleration. easily rivaling that of the legendary 99 Turbo.

The Saab sits on the 15-inch EMS ‘soccer ball' polished alloy wheels that have been recently refurbished to a great standard. As such there is no unsightly curb marking or age-related wear to behold.

The wheels are shod in a matching set of Hankook Optimo tyres. each with ample tread remaining. As a result of Saab's safety conscious attitude the 99 also features disc brakes all round. which all show plenty of life left.

Assembled by Saab-Valmet (Finland) in 1982. this 99 was not registered until 1st July 1983. It was originally supplied in Nottingham and has remained in the UK throughout its life. covering a mere 26. 73 miles in such time.

The current owner has meticulously organized the car's history file. which contains a veritable wealth of paperwork documenting the Saab's life to date. Along with several MOT certificates. a handful of old tax discs. as well as countless receipts. there is an extensive range of invoices detailing an assortment of work that has been carried out on the car over recent years. Present also are the original Owner's Handbook and service cards.
