SAAB Model 96 Turn Signal Lenses from Molds - Interest?
Posted by Scott Paterson [Email] (#13) [Profile/Gallery] (more from Scott Paterson) on Wed, 16 May 2018 11:41:56
Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I was contacted by a Saab owner (Emmett) who has come across a company that is willing to make molds and reproduce SAAB Model 96 turn signal lenses and if there are enough owners who want them, the price could be as low as $50 per lens. His original message to me is below. I told him that I'd post the info online and see what the demand might be so he could see if it was worthwhile to proceed. Please post if you would be interested in these? There is no need to register or to have an account here to post, just hit submit!

Thanks,

-Scott

Scott, Today I came across a company that is willing to reproduce SAAB 96 turn signal lenses, both kinds for the front as well as tail light lenses. Before they produce the molds to reproduce the lenses they would like some sort of an idea as to how many people would be interested in buying them. I am sending them the lenses for them to mold from. If they get a good response the cost will be reasonable, say, in the neighborhood of $50 per lens. If the response is not so good, the price will be higher or they may not be rerpoduced at all.

How can we go about getting the word out and some sort of a count as to number of buyers that might be interested for the initial run? I have found that decent lenses are almost impossible to find, and that just so so ones are pretty spendy. I was able to get his last two NOS lenses for a 67 front turn signal for $56 including shipping.

Thanks for your efforts and your time. I know the job is pretty thankless.
