Came across this today in a second hand bookshop and couldn't leave it behind. No idea whether it's useful or indeed rare but it's rather nice and would go nicely with the right car.

PM me if you'd like it...

The cover is promising - apparently you can replace the pistons using only a single spanner. Impressive...

I used to use Autobooks back in the day... Much better than Haynes.

Must be someone with a 2 stroke car on here. Does actually look pretty good.

I'd keep it if I thought I'd ever get the car to go with it ;-D

The V4 versions (I have three different printings) are full of errors, the Haynes V4 manual is pretty much fault free.

Bear in mind the 60-64 Saab service manual is pretty rubbish to start with, they started to get better from 66 on.

Worth a fiver. They are pretty common Nicebiscuit, something to clean up and put on your bookshelf maybe. Most are in very good condition as they were never used. A few new old stock ones come up now and then in original packaging... I have one, paid a tenner for it. Seems quite a few were made but not so many sold.

Well that's cool then as it cost a fiver :-). Passed it on to a two stroke owner on here - my bookshelves are heaving!

I already have one of these in my collection of manuals for older Saabs!
