Thank you for the info. David, I appreciate it. I still remember my neighbor had a 87 900 spg(?) I could hear him driving all the way down the street. I remember the exhaust note sounded so exotic.Don't see these very often. Technically, it's a MY 1982 1/2 since it's APC, and it's a special edition with body color wheels! Good luck.
Yes, in 1982 all cars had 85 mph speedos that were originally sold in the United States , even Porsche's and Ferrari's. My 1981 Z-28 speedo needle would go all the way around the speedo to an indicated 10 mph (about 150 mph road speed). :lol: http://i.ebayimg.com/t/1970-79-1981...w!2k~$(KGrHqUOKm4Ew9-L-qpJBMb2JoTI2Q~~_35.JPGWow...The speedo stops at 85 mph!!
Mine goes up to 140;ol;
Thank you for the info. update on this car. So apparently it does not have the special option group, because it has cloth. Thank you for supporting the asking price. I didn't notice the power antenna design, I will take a closer look next time I am near the car. Thank you for wishing us well on the sale.A rare car, 25th anniversary model in slate gray metallic only. H engines through '82 had timing chain issues. If this has leather, then it has the special option group but without console not likely. Very much worth the asking price as paint appears to be original. Do not mess with the power antenna as it is one of a kind, not anything like the +'84 type. Good luck with the sale.
Thanks for elaborating on the antenna design Peter! I'll check it out next time I am near the car!The antenna design is noticeable on the exterior by the location of the mast, which is closer to the edge & lower on the fender edge than a late '83 or newer model. When you remove the trunk liner which is complicated by the trunk light, you will find something that does not look remotely like the later model antenna motor & mast. This style was found on some American & Japanese cars in the early eighties as well as Saabs until mid '83. The later style will not mount unless a new hole is drilled. Wish I had a place for the car but no such luck.
According to an L.A. Saab club member a private shipper can deliver this 900 Turbo for about $1k. He said they can be found in Hemmings Motor News and in online vintage car blogs. :cheesy:
Yes, I know. The L.A. member is aware that this 900 Turbo does not run. I was surprised when he emailed me this news, that's why I replied to your post. Maybe shipping this 900 to NY is still possible. Out of respect for the L.A. member's privacy, I will introduce you two privately. Hopefully you can add this car to your collection for 1950-2350.Really?
I called several and lowest price was more than double that because it doesn't run. A running car is much less. Who is the LA guy? Please put him in touch with me. Because I would love to add that car to my collection for sentimental reasons - it's just that I can't justify 3200- 3500 for it.
