Old and Blue: 1974 Saab Sonett III

This next car is a Saab Sonett III, so that means the 2-stroke oil burner was no longer an option (shame, that would be the one to get IMHO) and it is powered by a V4 borrowed from the European Ford Taunus. The V4 displaces 1.7 liters and puts out 65 horsepower to a 4-speed manual gearbox mated to the front wheels, not exactly a performance nirvana, but at a sub 2000 lb curb weight, it won’t be a penalty box either. Find this 1974 Saab Sonett III offered for $5000 in Ham Lake, MN via craigslist. Tip from Kester.

From the seller;


74 Sonett with 79K. Complete running car with Collector plates. Some interior has redone with professionally restored seats. New carpeting and headliner. Has original engine, carb, etc. Has 5 soccer ball wheels. Rocker panels were replaced using 16 gauge metal. The floor pan is quite solid with one patch under gas pedal.
