For Sale: 1971 Saab Sonett in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this sharp 1971 Saab Sonett III. This car is claimed by its owner to have underwent restoration in 2013. During the restore, the numbers matching original Ford Taunus V4 cylinder engine was rebuilt with new gaskets and seals, the heads were machined and valves lapped, new rings and cylinders honed, the bottom end is original and didn't need rebuilding, the exhaust system was replaced, and even the 4 speed manual transmission was rebuilt with the freewheel locked out(all claimed by its owner). The engine did receive some upgrades such as its Weber 34ICH Carburetor, Classic Auto Air under dash A/C system, aluminum radiator, electric fan, and so much more. The odometer reads 77,251 miles but the rebuilt on this drivetrain was done only about 500 miles ago. The tub was sandblasted, trunk floor replaced, and painted with POR-15. All of the suspension components were powder coated satin black, new shocks/bushings/ball joints/ brake lines/ fuel lines/ and braking components were replaced as well. Painted in a sharp Ford RZ Red Candy metallic tri-coat paint that looks amazing and flows well with the two-tone red and gray leather interior. The total production in 1971 was 1265 units and total production for all manufactured years, 1966-1974, was 10,236 units. As this unique car gets older, it will only be harder and harder to find one, especially in this condition.
