Reduced reduced. All original except engine power increased, plus extra rustproofing. Reliable and great fun to drive. Retired and downsizing is the reason for selling this Sonett (also see my 1994 classic 900 convertible on Saabnet.com). Purchased in 2001 from second owner. First owner (engineer and racer) successfully enhanced the rustproofing: No rust to repair! Engine rebuilt 2001 at 70,572 miles with intake and exhaust manifolds, carburetor, street cam, oversize pistons, steel timing gear set, lightened flywheel, etc. from Motor Sport Service for significantly increased power. Heads with bigger hardened valves/seats for unleaded gas. Electric cooling fan and Ashcraft coolant filter. Brake and clutch systems converted to DOT 5 silicone. Brake master re-sleeved, front calipers rebuilt, new front rotors, pads and rear wheel cylinders. New clutch master and slave cylinders. Transaxle rebuilt 9/2016 by Tom Donney at Fort Dodge Transmission with Tom's recommended upgrades: Clutch disk and pressure plate, freewheel locked out. Rare correct OEM/Scandix dual exhaust and correct Vredestein Sprint Classic 155SR15 tires. Wheels never blasted: Original machining marks and center caps. Cibie headlights and period-correct driving lights. Seats with sheepskin seating surfaces plus original seats. Email or call for pictures and questions.

- 1974 Saab Sonett III (Posted 7/17/2019) SOLD
Color: Grabber Blue Trans: Manual Mileage: 58,000 Price: $3950
Vin #97745000116 Owned since mid 1980's. It was my last best Sonett of my 5 or 6 I had up to that point. She has been continuously registered and insured since I bought it from an ex GE employee I believe. One repaint in the mid 1990's in Ford Grabber Blue, a very close match to Saabs original color. I do not believe it has ever been wrecked. Corrosion is in the typical places near the jack stands and behind across the hind section. Clean NYS title. Always garaged, but time and moisture has caught up to her. GREAT candidate for a body off restoration, which was my intent... until i fell in love with a Baja Red one (II) recently. same color as my original 1971 Sonett in 1978…. ahh, you never forget your first Sonett... Car currently does drive (sort of), front left brake seems to be holding up, lights work and sometimes do not, idle stays higher than it should. Runs to good temperature and engine starts up on a click and sounds good. Transmission shifts but 3rd gear is stiff. New plugs, points and misc tune up items. New brakes, tires and battery.

Color: Beryl Trans: Manual Mileage: 160,966 Price: $7500
You are wondering why I am selling it, aren’t you? Being familiar with the Sonett III, you know it is not filled with creature comforts and I am past the age of driving a vehicle without A/C, power steering, power brakes, or power windows. I also need a radio I can hear at freeway speeds. I always loved the attention the car received when I drove it daily, but I have to get over the praise the car awarded me.
The car was purchased new in August 1971; original owner; driven daily until 2007; garaged nightly/covered daily when exposed to elements; service records available; repainted Beryl in 1991; four speed transmission; fun car to drive; CA car serviced at J & B Imports for most of its life prior to moving from Orange County to the San Fernando Valley; Saab owner and shop manuals.
- 1973 Saab Sonett III (Posted 4/29/2019) SOLD
Color: Yellow/Primer Trans: Manual Mileage: 37,XXX Price: $2500
Early 73 Sonett, licensed and inspected in PA. I drove it last summer but the brake master is leaking and I don't have the desire to remove it and send it back to White Post again. The heads have been rebuilt with hardened seats. MSS single pipe exhaust. Car needs paint, interior and brake master work. Could use carb tune up. Also I think the bushings in the shifter need to be replaced. Car comes with 2 barrel manifold and Weber DGAV carb as well as an extra front clip (not pictured). More pictures upon request. Make me an offer.
