Hi,

Just thought I would put up a picture of my 900 t16s that has just been brought back to life by my dad. Along side it is my dads 1981 Talbot Sunbeam (1.7 turbo!!!!!) he has a sense of humour.

Very nice collection of cars there Adam :wink:

The 900 looks very clean, what's the mileage on it?, It looks like its been well looked after.

Got any more pictures of it, interior, etc, be interested to see a side view of it with those black minilites 8)

Bet that walnut dash mush be a bit different with a red dashboard.

36k that's mental, where's the car been for the last 26 years, how did you come by it?

Do you have a shot of the offside side inner wing? I need to recreate the model year blue/white sticker as mine is missing, appreciate it if you do :wink:

My dad has owned it for the last 10 years, in which it has done very few miles. Once I had passed my driving test I asked my dad if I would be able to have the 900 as my car :)

Will try and get some interior pics of the car and a pic of the offside inner wing for you.

These are the only blue and white stickers I have on the front offside inner wing.


Here's a shot of the walnut dash with the red dashboard: -

Very nice Adam 8)

Nice black leather Carlsson steering wheel, that's quite rare. I like the walnut too, your dad must have spent ages picking up all those parts. You've also got the red leather, that's the rarest of all Saab 900 leather interiors. Lucky you for your first car, I had a brown Allegro :oops:

Thanks for the pictures, but the sticker I need is a dark blue with white writing stcker that's normally alongside the black warning 'varning' sticker. Only ever seen it on one 84/85 T16S, mine, I lost it in the rebuild :cry:

Cracking collection of cars you've got there.
I have to ask, as an Avenger owner (and many Sunbeams over the years), what engine's in the Beam and what sort of power is it pumping out?
Here's mine on the track at ASOC national weekend-

1.7 Turbo.... The only 1.7 turbos I can think of Volvo units or either diesels, so what is fitted?

Redders - My dad has a red carlsson steering wheel that im trying to persuade him to give me for it :) My first cars were the Talbot Sunbeam and the Talbot Avenger (ran these whilst waiting for the 900 to be ready). Will have another look for stickers under the bonnet to see what I can find, if I have any luck then I will post up another pic to hopefully help 8).

madwelshman - The sunbeam is running a 1.7 turbo avenger engine which my dad made, it is also running a ford type 9 gearbox (he also made that conversion too). Unsure of the power output, its bloody quick (not been brave enough to use all the power on the road).

umquat - the 1.7 turbo that is in both the avenger and the sunbeam are 1.6 avenger engines that have been bored out to 90mm to create the 1700cc. Both engines are using saab pistons (90mm).

Interesting.... my first car was a 1500 Avenger in red. One little old lady owner prior to me. Didnt matter how you drove it, the fuel economy was 25mpg.

45mpg!!!! I'd be happy if mine was doing half that!!
Mine's 1.6 beam lump, lightened & balanced, AVFR3 cam, ex Peugeot Talbot Ported&polished big valve head. Pulls hard from 3500-7500. Mate clocked me on track at 125mph. Bloomin knew I was doing it though, Not like my old 99t
