My old 1985 Saab 900 T16 (AER-085) has just been listed for sale today!
I sold the car quite a few years ago to a student from Saudi Arabia. He owned the car until last year (I think) when he sold it to another Tasmanian local named Lee.
Lee has done some work to tidy up the car – new seats, refurbished wheels, a full service and new dampers – and has now put it on the market. I’m surprised he’s selling as he got in touch with me soon after he bought it and sounded keen on fixing it and keeping it. He does say it’s a reluctant sale and I can believe it.
The car has a new engine since I owned it and of course, it has the most wonderful note from its 2.5inch exhaust. Being a 1985 car, it’s cat-free and should theoretically have a bit more punch as a result. An additional mechanical bonus is the 1991 gearbox, which is stronger than the original mid-80’s unit.
I don’t know the owner and I can’t vouch for the current condition of the car, but if it drives half as good as it looks in the photos, it’d be a great little Saab 900.
Buyer beware, but worth a look.
