Here we have for sale is my own very rare Saab 9000S 2.3 Turbo 5 door hatchback!
This Saab is in a condition fit for shows! Definitely an appreciating classic Saab ideal for an enthusiast.
Please read the description and contact me if you have any further questions.
This is the Biglamp model, so has the big headlamps but they are slightly sloped unlike the very early flatfront 9000. 1991 was the year Saab introduced the 2.3 litre engine and so this is one of the few biglamp models to come with the 2.3 litre engine of which standard came with 220BHP
So the car itself.
Registered in 1991 and came with ,
Full leather interior with front seat heating,
Anti-lock braking system and traction control,
Trip computer,pmtelling you, miles to end of fuel, fuel consumption, voltage, economy gauge, tells you if any levels are low/ faults, doors open etc.
Electric windows all round
Electric glass sunroof,
Plus more! A very high spec car for today's standard, let alone in 1991!
its been in and out of the same family a few times, I bought it off of a friend of the original owner who was selling it for him.
In 2009 the Saab was out into dry storage and left until January 2017 when it was dusted off and put in for an MOT, other than brake pipes and 2 tyres it flew through!
No welding had been carried out on this car prior to my ownership, this is due to the fact it's been wax oiled regularly as well as being a well built Swedish machine (wish my Range Rover was as reluctant to rust).
I noticed the rear lower quarter panels were bubbling and took the paint back to see it needed a repair unlike many I believe keeping a car as original is a priority and instead of taking some filler to it I sourced some panels over from America and had them installed . I have photos to show what was done.
So the bodywork is 100% you must see it to believe it. Yes the odd mark is here and there but no more than I have seen on a 3 year old car let alone a 26 year old car.
The history is outstanding on this Saab,
A full history is present, all books and receipts
All previous MOT certificates are present.
Here are a few key items that have been replaced over the recent years ( most of which were carried out under an extended Saab warranty plan) and all have been done by a Saab dealer.
Head gasket replaced @ 105,051 miles
Balancer shaft, chain and sprockets replaced head gasket also done @ 108,441 miles
Brand new gearbox and a upgraded clutch @ 111,072
Water pump and pump pipe to turbo @114,972
A brand new gearbox was fitted with an upgraded clutch, including hydraulics around 108000 miles also, I do have the receipt.
More recently by ourselves
new DI pack
New mass air flow sensor
New coolant temp sensor
New cooling fan switch, full cooling system flush and a new thermostat, full service, oils, fuel, spark plugs etc
2 new tyres,
Aux belt tensioner pulley and idler pulley,
Front brake flex hoses,
New boost pressure blow off valve
Engine and gearbox mounts replaced with power flex polyurethane bushes.
I have also fitted Bilstein B6 shock absorbers with Eibach 30mm lowering springs along with the very desirable super aero alloy wheels with Goodrich tyres. (I have all of the original parts that can go with the car)
Also an upgraded exhaust has been fitted for better flow.
I have had the headlining recovered as well as the gear knob re-trimmed and as I said previously, had the rear quarter panels restored
The previous owner had Abbott racing remap the Ecu to 260 horse power and had later aero suspension fitted which is boxed up since I fitted the Eibach and Holstein set-up
The car is ridiculously quick! 260hp doesn't seem like a huge amount but it's certainly a lively car! And handles superbly. He have been some very tasteful modifications that you would never tell have been carried out.
Is really is a collectible Saab and must be seen to be appreciated.
The previous owner has also written down all the work carried out over the years in the back of the owners handbook.
As with all of my cars, it comes with everything fully serviced ready to go and most importantly wax oiled!
Sold with a fresh MOT
