Color: Cardinal Red Trans: Manual Mileage: 20,350 Price: $14,000
1977 Saab 99EMS s/n 99777001700. Assembled in Belgium. 20,350 original miles. Purchased new by a Master Tech at Country Motors in Sewickley, PA, and accumulated only 14,900 miles before being put into storage in the early 90's. The second owner purchased the car in 2007, and brought it back to life. I am the third owner. The car is as original as you are likely to find, with only the headliner having been replaced, and the wheels having been refinished. Tires are recent correct size Vredesteins. Original engine, interior, and most of the paint. Being a Belgian assembly car, it does have some paint issues, but it has clearly escaped the fate of most of them. It has the dealer installed AC, which still blows cold. Serviced by Sports Car Service in Wilmington, DE, and has been driven to Saabs at Carlisle and the New Hope Auto Show this year. The car is located in suburban Philadelphia. A PPI at buyers expense is welcome and encouraged. Hi res versions of the attached photos are available on Flickr here:
This car was featured in Hemmings Sports and Exotic in Nov. 2010.

I have a beautiful 1978 Saab 99 GLE for sale. I am the 3rd owner of this amazing car. I bought it in Portland, Oregon in 2013 and shipped it here to Ohio when I moved. The body is relatively rust free in great condition. It looks beautiful after a buff job. The color is called Anthracite grey. It has been driven very lightly through one winter. Ohio winters are rough, so that was a one time thing for this car, however, it handles awesome in the snow. The car is mechanically sound and runs like a dream. Since I have become the owner, the car has been upgraded with premium parts, such as the rotors, breaks, exhaust. Under the hood, there are new wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, battery, thermostat and gasket, fuel distributor, harmonic balancer. About a year ago, we replaced the head of the engine with one that came out of a car that had only 500 miles on it. It's unbelievable, but its true. The odometer reads 225,000. The car is running very nice with a manual transmission on all 4 cylinders. Like most old cars, there is an oil leak. This has been there since I purchased the car. I check the oil on it every 2 weeks, and it has yet to be low. I also keep the car regularly serviced at Cartel Auto on N. Main st. The guys over there treat this car right! I had them clean the engine to locate the leak. It is between the engine and the transmission. The engine would have to come out for this to be fixed. It can be done for $800. The interior is in good condition. The driver side seat was recently repadded. There is a nice car stereo with cd. The dash is features temperature controls for winter/summer. Everything is in good working order. The heater works great. There is a manual sunroof and manual windows. The back seats lay completely flat. All windows are intact and functional. I have the Haynes manual, as well as the original owners manual and most records. The guys at Cartel Auto call this car a dream. I am asking the price above for this rare collector's special. Serious Inquiries only.

Draken is a survivor '78 99 EMS 2-door Wagonback that has had three owners since new. Before my term at the helm it was owned by master Saab mechanic Walter Wong from Right Solution in Culver City, CA. Read the entire story here: Click Here.
She wears original paint, runs and drives well, is mechanically very solid, and wears a nice patina from the past 37 years of life in Southern California. No bondo, no sketchy repairs, no cheap resprays. A few small rust spots on door, and hatch (see pics) but underside (and fenders) are completely rust free. Upper and lower control arms, brake rotors, hubs, pads, master cylinder, axles, radiator core, and fan are all from the prolific Saab 900. Brakes are strong, steering is tight, suspension is good, tires are a hodgepodge of various brands, but do the job. Wheels are Inca Alloys.
