Further information:

The Sonett was a lightweight fibreglass-bodied sports car manufactured between 1966 and 1974. Sonett I never progressed beyond prototype stage, but 258 Sonett IIs were produced, powered by the two-stroke Saab 96 engine. When this no longer met federal emission regulations Saab adopted Ford's 1498cc V4 unit for both the 96 and Sonnet. Ultimately 1,610 V4 Sonetts were made, virtually all of which headed for the USA, including the Blue sale car that came to the UK via Connecticut in 1997. It was resprayed in 1998 and subject to £5,000 worth of improvements in 2008. For the last four-plus years it's been owned by a Saab enthusiast who presently classifies the engine and manual transmission as 'excellent' and the bodywork, paintwork and black interior trim as 'very good'. Now displaying 109,227 miles, 'YMO 252F' rides on rare Tuneverken alloy wheels and was shod with fresh Michelin tyres in 2018 and comes complete with sale brochure, workshop manual, collection of old MOTs plus invoices.
