The Saab 96 was released in 1960 as a replacement for the Saab 93 model. Initially available with only with a 3 cylinder 2-stroke engine until 1967 when, under a veil of secrecy other engines were tested before the 1498cc Ford V4 unit was chosen for installation. The 96 was transformed as a result of this, allowing it to compete on an entirely different level on both the retail market and indeed the competitive rally circuit where the V4 claimed World Rally Championship crowns in both 1973 and 1976.

This Saab 96 was manufactured in 1977 and first UK registered in April 1977and is fitted with the 1498cc V4 engine mated to the column-change manual gearbox. Finished in the striking colour combination of Opalgrun paintwork with a Black interior upholstery. ‘RCT 114R’ has a recorded mileage of 87,680 miles (at time of consignment) which is believed, but not warranted, to be genuine. In current registered ownership since 2015, the previous custodian had the Saab from 2008. Accompanied by a current V5C. Scarcely offered and offered without reserve.
