I am reluctantly offering this very rare and nicely restored Saab classic 99 GL. I have a small collection of classic cars and the warehouse where I've stored many of my cars for the past few years was just sold. I am desperately searching for alternative space but need to prepare by selling some of the collection. This is a great car that needs nothing and is ready to drive and enjoy today.
This particular 99 GL was restored about two years ago just before being acquired by the previous owner. That owner used it only as a weekend and beach car and it was always garaged before being sold to me. The odometer (and title) reads 55. 26 actual miles but best guess from the previous owner is that actual mileage is now closer to 65. 00. While the odometer has stopped working. the speedometer does work so it seems the guage itself is the issue. All other gauges including the clock are opearable.  
The engine is original and runs like new. it's the very quick and responsive 2 liter fuel injected 4 cylinder war horse that was popular on the European road rally circuit in the 1970's. I've never had to add oil and I only have a few sporadic drops on the garage floor. The restoration included new brakes and a new clutch. I just changed the oil/filter within the last 200 miles of driving.
During the restoration two years ago the car was professionally repainted the original Saab Alpine White (more of a cream color). The interior is superb and was restored in the original dark brown cloth/vinyl combination. The headliner is new. The dash is excellent but I added a custom fitted dash top cover. The carpet is excellent but could use a cleaning. While there is a rear antenna and speaker wiring to the rear deck lid there is no radio in the car. There is no a/c. Chrome and glass is very good all around. A blue car cover is included with the car.
The trunk is huge and has the original jack. carpet and full size spare. *The previous owner replaced the original wheels with a later set of model 99 turbo "inca" wheels on new radials which really set the car off. I also have the original set of wheels with hard to find chrome hub caps on a set of nearly new tires.
A few months ago the seat bottom on the drivers seat sagged a bit and I suspect that one of the seat frame straps either broke or came loose. I placed a support under the seat and all is well. but it will need attending.
The trunk and engine compartment was not repainted during the restoration but. as you can see in the photo's. the color match is perfect and it shows how clean the car was before being repainted. While essentially rust free. there is a small 2 inch area at the bottom lip of the drivers door near the rubber trim (see photo).
You'll be hard pressed to find another Saab 99 in this condition at any price. It's the perfect affordable and reliable classic driver that will generate a thumbs up wherever you go. Several people have stopped me to let me know they fondly recall a 99 as one of their first cars and I don't remember ever seeing another one on the road around here in Virginia in many years.  
All emails will be answered promptly and I'll be happy to show the car to interested local buyers. I've also listed the car for sale locally so the ad could be pulled at any time if sold. and if I get lucky and find some new garage space before it sells. I plan to keep her.
