Hey guys!

I'm more of an old Land Rover Series guy, but I came across this old 1962 Saab ( I believe it is a 96, please correct me if I am wrong). The seller is asking $1500. Runs and drives, surface rust, 18,000 miles. I'm not sure of the interior's condition yet.

What do you guys think? Worthy project? Good deal? Too much? will it be as fun as an old Series Rover? Honestly, I know very little of these old Saabs.

Thanks!

for that price - if it`s really only surface rust and if that`s rell low miles, I would have bought it without any doubt. go and get it!

Yes, supposedly that is the actual miles of only 18,000. Unless, of course, these odometers roll over in these cars. The car is 6 hours away, so it would be quite the trip to go look at it. The seller says they had it appraised at $2500, so $1500 seems fair if that is the case.

Oh, and the owner/seller has inidcated that the floor pans are intact.

That engine doesn't look like it's from the Saab. It looks like its from the Mercury behind it.

Just be cautious there. Might be an honest mistake mixing his photos, but just beware.

Yep, your right! The daughter is selling the Saab along with a few other old cars from her 89 year old father's car collection. She sent me whatever photos from her iPhone that she had which included some toher 1950's and 1960's cars. Disregard the engine photo.

I just can't convince myself to do it right now. If anybody wants to pursue this car on their own, it is located in the Oklahoma panhandle. I can pass on the info if you would like it.

Thanks!

:cheesy:ditto:cheesy:
These relics are so fun to drive and so simple to fix.
Much as a Model T Ford is.
Parts = a challange plus.
