I have a 2003 9-3 Arc, and don't know alot about older models. I'm looking for a project car...

The following is an e-mail from a friend I have at a Saab Dealership. He says he can get me this car for $800.00 I know it's hard to judge a book by it's cover, but is this a good deal:

"How about a 1985 SPG, first year, all were black and tan. I know the history of this car, well kept and needs little. A/C blows warm, but the car runs great."

Nice car. Those bullnose SPGs look darn good. I really like the way that the front air dam wraps around the bumper like that. Good choice.
I would compare with similar cars that you see advertised. If it needs work, get them to include in the price or price the work by asking a Saab mechanic or looking up the part yourself and deducting some for the work. You know the car better than any of us...

As far as losing money, you're probably good since the wheels and body kit would bring a fair amount parted -- maybe $250 for the wheels and $400 for the body kit? Look at the ads for those, too. Remember that the facelifted body kits and 1988+ wheels will bring a little more since there is more demand.
