For Sale: 1973 Saab Sonett in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this exhilarating 1973 Saab Sonett III in red, with beige and black interior. The Saab Sonett is a special type of low production classic that remains unheard of amongst the general public, and even some car enthusiasts. At first glance, one might think Opel GT, Pantera, or even Ferrari. The Sonnet is for those who want a unique, quirky, and quick little sports car that is rarely ever spotted on the road. Saab Automobile was a Swedish manufacturer founded in the 1940's. Production of the Sonett I began in 1956, and only 6 were made to be displayed at a Swedish motor show. Production numbers picked up in the 60's with the upgraded Sonett II, and from 1970 to 1974 the Sonnet III was manufactured. Like vintage Corvettes, the body panels of the Saab are composed of fiberglass. Lightweight, and impossible to rust. The headlights manually pop-up with a lever- pretty quirky. Won't ever have to worry about motors breaking, and your car looking as if its winking at everyone. The rear glass panel can be popped open as a hatch for easy cargo access, and the fuel cap is located on the passenger sail panel. The Sonett is equipped with a Ford 1.7L V4 engine. Paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The car is an absolute blast to drive, and the motor sounds great in and out of the cockpit. The exterior is in red with black trim and bumpers, with a clean tan interior. The seats are in great shape! The stereo has been upgraded to a Retrosound radio. Which appears period correct but allows for auxiliary input, so you can play music from your phone. The Saab Sonett III, a fun and quirky little sports car- a hidden gem.
