I am currently in negotiations for a two stroke 96 located in the northern part of Norway - link here

http://www.finn.no/finn/car/used/object ... e=24340827

Not easy when you cannot view the car, it is about 18 hours drive from where I return to Stavanger, and I am doing it by email :roll: Obviously if a local puts in an offer I expect to lose out (it would save a great deal of hassle with logistics if that happens :roll: ) but I live in hope.

The only thing that concerns me is the dashboard. I am not really up to speed on the bullnose, but the first picture shows the blue dash on John Wyatts 1964 model (currently on ebay) and the second picture the one I am after.

Obviously the wheel is on the opposite side, but is the dash right as this is also supposed to be a 64 model?

The dash on the Norway car is a '62. '63 models had the same as John's. Info from my brochures. The '62 brochure is for a 95 but I'd guess the 96 has the same dash.

Thanks Derek

The seller does say it was registered in 1964, not that it is a 64 model. With only 76k recorded, it is possible the first owner bought an old stock cheaper one I suppose. Answers my question though, thank you.

That's exactly the same dash as my 1962 car had...as said before correct for a 62-64 car..looking at the grill (saab logo on grill and not a seperate badge above grill..that changed 62/63) i would say that it's a 1963 car as the dash changed in 64 (in the UK) ..do you have the chassis number?
Looks like a tidy car..nice red/grey interior and correct for a white car! The bumpers have been sprayed..possibly because they were corroded..if you want to go back to chrome it may cost quite a bit!..it looks like it's had a quick blow over rather than a full strip down..(bit of over spray on the door rubbers)..i would be asking for a few better pictures.

Car Model: '62' Bullnose 96
Dashboard is 62-63, bonnet/grille is 64, boot appears 62-63 (64 had saab aeroplane motive on it), steering wheel/horn ring is 1964 (62-63 did not have chome semi-circle push ring) in all, a bit's and pieces motor...but who cares...it's a 'Bullnose' how could you say no? She looks a beautiful piece of SAAB class and one of the truly greatest and last of the type that can be called 'real Saab' (The model that put them on the world map).....hope you get it.

Yep,

That's the same dash / speedo as my 62 built MY63 stroker.

Although the layout is different....this must be due to the LHD?

Graham

Had a look at the photos.....looks great.

Noticed that the bumper infill plates and front wing rubbers are missing (fitted on lower edge of front wing and bumper infill panels).

This may have something to do with the bumpers being painted.

I have paper patterns for these.

There may be a problem with the in infill panel threads which are found within the inside upper edge of the bumper...mine were found to be rusted and broken off in places.

Hope this helps

Regards
Graham

Thanks all, no reply yet from the seller so suspect he is waiting on someone local visiting.
