Hi all,

I will be inspecting a potential new candidate for my Saab "fleet" next week.

This is a 5dr 1979 MY in GLs trim ;ol;.

Checking the mechanics and body is no big deal. But I have never even seen one of these early cars up close, so I'd need pictures of the interior to compare to what I'll be seeing. From the limited pictures I saw on the ad, the upholstery seems very different from the very few pics I've seen of 1979 cars, but then all of them were turbos/EMS/GLE so with higher spec trim.

Would be great if you could contribute pictures of some GLses to put me on the right track when it comes to assessing the inside of it!

Thanks in advance, Seb

Yes that is definitely turbo trim. Quite different from the tiny piece of seat I can see on the ad's photos. I'm quite sure some GLS sported them but was this factory spec or retrofit? The seats I see in the ad look like no other later 900 seat I've ever seen (brochures or actual cars) so I'm thinking they may be original. But they have nothing to do with GLE of turbo upholstery I saw in the 1979 sales brochures...
