Saabstang or Mustaab: 1986 Saab 900
Parts availability for the Saab 900 platform isn’t as plentiful as it was back when ever other college professor drove one of these things, but it isn’t bad for vintage Scandinavian oddball. But if you were really concerned that you couldn’t find some diaphragm or hard-line used in one of those early Bosch fuel injection systems, you could consider upgrading to something more common, like an entire Ford Mustang drivetrain. Say what? Yeah, this next car might look like a Saab 900, but it has been competely transformed from front-wheel-drive backwards-engine Saab rally machine into a Weld Wheel shod supercharged 5.0h V8 powered drag strip speed machine. And the interior (and engine bay) is a treat for the LSU or classic LA Kings fan. Find this 1986 Saab 900 offered for $22,500 in Henderson, NC via faceswap marketbash.

Okej, det är nötterboll.
Fun fact, Henderson NC is about 50 miles from Greenville NC, site of East Carolina University, 4th largest in NC and home of the Pirates, whose colors are… purple and gold.
I don’t know – it’s missing something. I think it could use a little more purple.
Add some Royal Purple oil at the next service.
I’ve seen a lot of wild drivetrain swaps, but this one is completely unprecedented.
The louvers seem appropriate for both the SAAB body and the Mustang drivetrain swap.
That’s no Saab dashboard… it’s from the Mustang! But how would it fit in a Saab? I have a very bad feeling about this.
