Default 1987 8v na 3dr

Beautiful blood red 1987 8V NA Saab - one major issue and one minor (cosmetic) issue - major issue is that the gearbox (5SPD) is knackered - pinion is shot to heck - minor is a cracked dashboard (what 23 year old Saab doesn't suffer from that??) - kills me to sell her.
The good - full ownership history
new tires on super incas
OEM steel wheels and hubcaps
Great paint (excepting pass. door which is good)
New exhaust system (manifold to exit, failing the CAT which is gutted)
Seats and interior trim in great condition
8V engine runs great
Brakes work great
New universal joint on steering column
The bad - Gearbox is shot

Make me an offer - hate to have her head to the scrap yard - much rather give a fellow saaber a break.

email me at drstevehorn@yahoo.com

Peace

out

Trans to beat to drive 200 or so miles?

I'm glad you sold it Steve! Good you didn't scrap it.

I'll never sell mine- have some friends in the mountains that are going to let me store it in their property.

Oddly enough Steve's ended up in the mountains in Western Clinton County.

if you have to ask you've never driven an 8V through there! North of State College PA - beautiful part of Pennsylvania.

Sure would, not as large as the Blue Ridge or Rockies, but still mountains with lots of mountain roads and not so many people around.

Sounds tempting...I'll definitely pass through there if I travel in that direction.
