Great running '74 Sonett III. My parents bought it in 1981 and I inherited it about 13 years ago. Has been stored indoors since 1981 and not driven in snow/rain. Reliable and incredibly fun although it is time to pass it on. Issues: some rust as expected on rockers and front floor pan although still structurally intact (trunk pan is fine), mild oil seepage from left head or valve cover which I have not had time to investigate. Recently repainted yellow, many parts replaced in the last 5 years: Cooling, clutch, ignition, intake, exhaust systems COMPLETELY redone. Interior is excellent and leather seats are flawless. Everything works except a/c which was removed. All repairs were meticulously performed the right way and I have taken excellent care of this car. Please contact me for more information.

I am only the second owner of this Sonett. It had been stored since 1988 so mileage is low at 67,000. It has updated mechanicals including all new brakes and tires. The interior is all original and very nice. The paint has flaws but mostly original paint but it doesn't need paint. The car comes with original manuals and dealer window sticker! The trans works great and freewheel dies too.

Third owner. Reliable and great fun to drive. First owner (an
engineer/inventor/designer who raced SAABs and open-wheel cars) took great care
to immediately enhance the rustproofing. It worked. Engine professionally
rebuilt at The Foreign Service (MN) at 70,572 miles. Upgrades produce
significantly increased power: Motor Sport Service intake and exhaust manifolds
and carburetor, plus new from MSS pistons (+ .032 oversize), lifters, street
cam, steel timing gear set and main, rod, cam & balance shaft bearings. Heads
with bigger hardened valves and seats (can use unleaded gas),lightened flywheel
(new flywheel bolts). Brake and clutch systems renewed and converted to DOT 5
fluid: Brake master re-sleeved, front calipers rebuilt, new front rotors, pads
and rear wheel cylinders. Electric cooling fan, Jack Ashcraft coolant filter.
Freewheel works (saves gas). Correct Vredestein Sprint Classic155SR15 tires fit
perfectly. Original wheels with center caps. Wheels never blasted: original
machining marks still there. Original paint. Solid original pan, rocker panels,
etc. Cibie headlights and period-correct driving lights. Seats upgraded with
sheepskin seating surfaces plus extra pair of original seats included. Appraised
in 2008 at $7500. New asking price above. Price reduced: Needs transaxle.
