Description for Saab 900 1990

Saab 900 . Seller reserves the right to close the posting at any time.Originally a Pittsburg car, I bought it in Savannah a few years ago. I wasn’t sure of what to expect – the seller touted it as gorgeous in every way – and decided to buy it when I was still 100 feet from touching it. No thirty years old car can look that good and have owners who don’t care about it. The odometer had 35,000 miles on it and the seller told me to double that. The speedometer croaked at 35k and Savannah Saab popped a used one it and broke the plastic surround in the process. It’s still cracked. It was my daily driver for a year and ran without issue. I worried me every day that something would go wrong and I’d be up a creek in a bad way. Here in South Carolina, mechanics can rebuild a 1970 Ford truck engine blindfolded, but wonder what a Saab is. I finally blew a belt and took it to the shop that works on my wife’s Jeep. After an hour they called to ask – not kidding! – if I knew the car was made in Sweden and that everything in it was backward. I took it to a Euroshop who claimed they were Saab experts. I’m pretty sure mine was the first backward Swedish car they ever worked on. They gave the car back to me not charging the battery. I put in on a charger on Sundays and drove it all week to work. By the end of the week, the batt reads about 10-11v. If I wait longer to charge it, I have a jumping unit I take with me to start the car. I am selling it with a new alternator that you can install. When started, the battery reads about 11.5v so something is wrong with the system. ConsI was driving the car to work one morning on a back road when something long and stout like a 1965 Cadillac came at me and started swerving onto my side of the road. At the very last fraction of the tiniest second, the driver woke up or looked up from the phone and I heard an explosion. Our mirrors hit. I bought a new one which works well but the paint on top of the driver’s door is dinged up. The dash and interior looks like every other 1990 Saab I’ve seen. The carpet has a hole under your feet and there’s obvious wear. The dash has a crack on the passenger side and the vinyl facia covering is peeling in a couple spots. The driver’s side seat belt holder is cracked, too.I recently had new tires put on the rear. The front needs new ones too. Per the photo, I lost the cap to the power steering box. Speedometer, as described above, runs 35,000 miles short. The convertible top has a mind of its own. First, I never use it. I’m from Seattle and live in the South now where a nice summer day tops 100 degrees. I drive with the top up and the AC on. When I do use it, I always help it by hand and the dash button works sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t. ProsYou are looking at, in my humble opinion, one of the finest cars ever made, along with a 1970s Porsche. Except for the electrical issue, the car runs great. Ask away. I can take pictures of anything you want and will fill in any blanks for you. Please know that I am asking for a bank or cashier’s check and will require it to deposit to my bank account before releasing the car. Plan your Friday night date accordingly. Shipping, transport insurance, and any and all fees are the buyer’s responsibility. If you use a transporter, I will be happy for them to drive to my house. I’m just selling a car.
