Hi I have just acquired a 99GL 2 door 1981 W reg in Cirrus white, only had 2 owners from new with some history, only covered 39,000 miles. I need to pull it out properly from under the hedge, so I will be able to look more closely soon. Being romantic I think a good wash off and change of wheels will help it. More details to follow, hopefully with only a small amount of disappointment!
I will be looking for bits and bobs and will look forward to posting a list soon.

Hi all, I pleased to confirm I have collected the 99 GL - DPX 83W and it’s now back home. I have it booked in the garage to have a look over and see what the list might look like, gulp, fingers crossed.
It’s only had 2 owners from new, was supplied by Shore Road garage in Chichester. The car has been off the road since 2006, but has only covered 39,283 miles.
Initial look over would mean, get engine looked at to see if will turn over, and check the under body.
I will update as I find bits out, and hopefully will be posting a list of parts neeeded rather than new post listing a complete Saab for parts only!

Hi I have just merged your last post (and edited it, you know why*) with the original thread you started.

Your thread has also been moved into ''Your Cars'', threads should only be posted in Restorations if they are full on restorations or builds.

Pictures of the 99 are a must :wink:

*For selling or items wanted please use the classifieds, UKS does not allow ads in other sections of the forum.
