Turbo Jet: 1998 Saab 9000 CSE

This next car comes as a tip from Cory who writes: bargain of the day- this is last year and aero spec Saab 9000. Yes, for $500 you get a manual gearbox equipped version of the last year of the Saab designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign with a boosted 2.3 liter B-series engine. Not sure if it is a true Aero spec (shouldn’t it have an Aero badge?) but the 200ish horsepower engine should make this thing scoot along faster than most $500 cars. Find this 1998 Saab 9000 CSE offered for $500 in Bradford, RI via craigslist.

Selling this 1998 Saab 9000 CSE with manual transmission and 2.3 Turbo engine. Has Mitsubishi TD-04 turbo and is a non traction control car. 312,000 miles but you would never know it. Interior is mint. Body is good except for hole in floor on passenger side (pictured). Rear shock towers are in good shape which is rare for a New England 9000. Car comes with rear brake rotor and pads but needs a rear passenger side brake line and caliper. Engine and transmission are smooth. Has a 3” cat back exhaust with middle resonator delete, new heater core, new temperature sensor, and a new rear drivers side brake caliper done in the last few months. Hoping to sell it to a Saab enthusiast who can use it as a parts car for their 9000 or get it back on the road. I just don’t have the time for an additional project or room for another Saab in my yard. $500 takes it. Must be towed. Car cannot be driven due to leaking brake line. Calls only. No texts. No emails. Sorry for the inconvenience, just too many scammers out there. If I don’t answer please leave a message and I’ll call you back. Thanks for looking.
