Forum rules


We tend to get quite a few 'what's it worth?' threads, now we have somewhere to put them!

Those starting a thread on here should do so expecting the answers to vary.
You are likely to get people attempting to grab a bargain (a 5dr 99 Turbo you say? Probably worth about a hundred quid scrap value - I will bring the cash round and take it off your hands).
You will also get optimistic opinions (there is only 9-3 Sport left in the whole world - I would take it off your hands for £1,000,000 right now but my wife would kill me/your too far away/I've got nowhere to put it).
Also be prepared to be offended because you know what you would like for it/what it owes you (why are you posting here) and no one has said its worth that.

You would probably be better off putting an ad in the Classifieds section with a price that you think is about right...if no-one buys it, lower the price. If the car sells within minutes you might have been able to get a bit more but hey, you have got what you wanted!

People replying to requests should be polite, respectful, and honest please. If you cannot do that, please don't post.
No need to say 'stick it on eBay with a good listing, a 99p start and no reserve' because we have just said it right here...
Any posts found to be breaking these simple rules will be removed.

Some of the classic magazines (Classic Cars and Practical Classics for example) have price guides in the back...it is worth having a look in there if you have got a classic SAAB. Or look in the UKS classified archives for previously advertised cars and asking prices.

Car Models: Saab 99 LEA
Hi everyone, sorry I’m new to the website and to Saab’s in general, but I’ve recently inherited a Saab 99LEA from my Uncle. As much as I love the car, I’m looking to sell it but am not sure if it’s value. I’ve had it resprayed and it runs well, 86k miles from one owner, my uncle! I don’t even know where to start as can’t find anything on the usual websites that would give me an indication, but websites like this make me think this would probably go to someone who would care for it as much as he did.

Love to hear some responses, thanks for reading and look forward to hearing from anyone.

Welcome to UKS.

As with any classic car, values are determined by condition and desirability.

All 99's are starting to rise in value, with the Turbos and EMS models being the most desirable/sought after.

Prices are anything from £400- £1000 for non Turbo/EMS projects.
Runners to exceptional non Turbo/EMS models range from £1500 - £7000

For an average to good Turbo or EMS you will be looking at £10,000+
Asking prices for truly exceptional examples of these models will be and are around £20,000 + or - a few £k.

Again, condition is everything.

A reminder, this is not a for sale ad.
The OP is looking for advice on what it’s worth.

If you have any advice on values please post for all to see rather than pm.

“pm sent” posts will be removed as per the rules posted in the sticky above.

That's quite a rare car, but maybe not that wanted.

From memory an early 2.0l model, basic 'L' spec
'E' for Electronic (bosch D jet) injection
'A' for Auto

Not many around at all.
