Project up for grabs: 1973 Saab 99L, stored in Suffolk (IP17) £875.-

This is a one owner car that has stood since it failed it's MOT back in May 2007. I recovered it from Kent, cleaned it and checked it over quite thoroughly. (Please see under the Your Cars section, SLN216L) It is 100% complete but does need welding, the main areas being NSR wheel arch and OFS drive shaft tunnel. Other than that, small patches are required here and there but generally it is solid. Triumph 1850 engine turns freely but currently no spark. I'm playing with it every weekend so will update if I get it started

Keys and V5 present.

PM me with an email address if you want pictures of any specific areas (I'm no good at posting pictures on here... :cry: )

Quick update: the lack of spark was due to faulty points and once replaced the Triumph engine now runs sweet! Clutch is stiff but works and all gears engage as they should. The car now starts, runs and stops 8)

Do you have any more photos of it yet ?? this is the same colour mine was (minus the moss) when I gave it to a relative way back in 1983 just prior to being posted to Germany with the RAF.

I wish Saab had continued with it, interior was green cloth which contrasted well.

Cheers
Mike
