A "fair" price is dependent on three factors: (1) condition, (2) condition and (3) condition. It's hard to put a price on a car for which there is no information provided. On that basis, as a 1974 Sonett owner, I would say between $500 and $20,000. Most usually sell for between $500 - $3,000. Above $3K and below $10K you can find very good to excellent models. On the lower end, i.e. $3k -$5K you will find rust issues and mechanical issues and an interior that needs to be restored too. At the upper end, the car should be complete, running very well to perfect with a very nice interior (but you will find a lot of variations that are great but not original). It is very rare to find a Sonett that is all original, especially in the interior.
It looks like a great car. I love it! Based on the photos the car seems to be near perfect. The seats cloth material looks like a replacement fabric. Not a criticism just an observation. The trunk carpet also looks new, not original, The engine carburetor and air cleaner have been replaced. The Saab folder that is with the brochures and booklets I don't believe came with the Sonett (I've never seen one anyway but I have that folder that came with one of my much newer 900s - I think)
Few Sonetts fetch $20K but to do comparisons I would suggest going to buyatrailer.com and use their search bar and type in Saab Sonett. You will get a listing of all Sonetts that have sold through them. I bid on one in CT in the last year (purple I think). I also inspected it in person and drove it. The owner did everything to the car. Upgrades everywhere all tastefully and professionally done. It was gorgeous, drove perfectly and nothing had to be done to this car. I unfortunately was outbid and the car sold for $10,250 (if I recall exactly).
