Sassy white 1973 SAAB Sonett III! VIN: 97735001368. Daily driver running condition. I have owned this car since 2004. Most recent work (last 8 years) performed by Bud Clark of J&B Imports in Orange, CA. This car has been a daily driver and is presently drivable. The exterior paint is in fair to good condition with a few “star” cracks (passenger side bonnet). The original 1973 color was green but had been painted white about 25 years ago. The interior was redone once, also about 25 years ago, and while serviceable, is ready for another facelift. As can be seen in photos, there is virtually no rust on this car. The trunk was fully replaced with an Ashcraft stainless steel product. All the glass is present, original and in excellent condition. There is documentation showing chain of ownership placing me as the third owner. This is truly a fun car to drive and show off. The original engine was replaced and now has approx 2,500 miles on the current engine, as was the carburetor. I have the paperwork with the details. Also available is the original owner’s manual, the service manual and other associated paperwork. Much of the work performed since 2004 is documented via invoices and work orders. There is a box of extra parts that will go with the car. Almost 70 photos available upon request. I begin traveling on December 16, 2018 and would love for this Sonett III to find it's new home. Currently located near Palm Springs, CA. While drivable, I highly recommend shipping or tow-hauling to new home. I can deliver to an I-10 location between Palm Springs and Indio, CA. I will consider all serious offers.

Selling my beloved Sonett after 34 years. Second owner. Purchased in 1983 at 119,000 miles. Car has won numerous awards at various conventions and car shows and has always received rave reviews and acclaim from attendees. Finished a full ground up restoration in the spring of 1988. Restoration consisted of total disassembly. Every piece of sheet metal on the under structure of the car that was available from SAAB at the time was replaced. Priming of all metal parts was done using CORALAR primer as per Saab Guru Bill Jacobsen's recommendation given at the 1985 convention in Delaware. Engine totally disassembled and rebuilt. New valves and seats to deal with unleaded gas. New Isky camshaft for enhanced performance. Carb work and tuning done by Andy Bittenbinder, local tuning expert and Saab enthusiast. Automatic choke replaced with manual choke. Much more detail work done too. New battery this past September. Transmission rebuilt by J&B Imports (Bud Clark) in California in 1999. New bearings, seals and gaskets, etc. Invoice with parts breakdown available. Brakes, hoses, seals, rotors, drums, etc all replaced. Have some new misc. parts from Jack Ashcraft in my inventory that would be included along with factory Sonett manual and Saab parts microfiche and reader. Complete documentation of all work done included with sale of car. Car was originally Pumpkin Orange. Now painted in the VERY VERY rare SAAB Pearlescent White, only used on the eight 1985 SPG prototype cars. My wife and I had the use of one of these SPG's for two weeks on our honeymoon in Sweden that summer and I fell in love with the color. Wheels are painted to match. Paint job is unbelievable and can only be appreciated in person. Car changes color in the sunlight. Unlike any other pearlescent that you have ever seen before. Interior seats reupholstered in fabric very similar to factory. New radio and speakers. Side and rear windows tinted a slightly darker shade of gray to highlight the paint. I believe this car may be one of the finest examples of this model in existence. Only known issue is an undiagnosed slight oil leak. Selling car as is with this issue. Motivated seller willing to make a fair deal for both parties.

Oregon car I picked up back in 2000 and has been in storage ever since. When purchased, it has just undergone a restoration with new paint and upholstery and overhauled engine and tranny. Two issues: (1) the previous owner had a thing against the pop-up headlights, so had removed all the headlight hardware and installed driving lights in the grill. I am about half-way done with replacing the pop-up mechanism -- the hood is still off so is accessible for someone to finish the job. (2) the car had apparently had A/C that had been removed at some point. No problem under the hood, but the vent hoses have also been removed under the dash so some analysis/refurbishment would be required there. Too good to part out, but I have no time or space (and too many other projects) to complete.
