Shoulda Had a V4: 1974 Saab Sonett III

I’ve seen what happens when people buy the first year of a new car when it is released…and it usually isn’t pretty.  The new model comes with new technology that always has some teething issues, so I generally recommend that people avoid the first few years of production…but what about the last year or so?  If the factory is being shut, will the assembly people care if your car is assembled correctly, or will they ignore the fine print on their work orders.  I think I’d take a risk on this next car because I can’t imagine that any assembly issues haven’t been worked out in the past 45 years.

I have a very well sorted last year made Saab sonett iii, year old British racing green paint in good shape, approximately 5k on rebuilt engine 1.7 Ford v4. It’s very well sorted fun little car. Unfortunately I don’t really fit in it with a bad back. It also comes with a bunch of spares.
