Not many cars get a 20-year span of production, and fewer make it through those years with only one major change. The SAAB 96 is one of those cars, and it may look like a curiosity to modern eyes but the car survived and prospered because it works well for its purpose. This example is an original survivor - Overhead fan shaft three cylinder mixer. Rust free body in patina white with gray cloth/vinyl interior and a smooth shifting three speed on the column. It runs and drives but we would recommend to frenshen the entire car. The original SAAB 96 was introduced in 1960 as a 1961 model year car. The 96 succeeded the older SAAB 92 and 93 models, and was co-produced with the similar SAAB 95 station wagon through 1978. The 96 was part of the SAAB design tradition: a two-door coupe with front wheel drive and an aerodynamic body. That's no accident; SAAB is an acronym for Svenska Aeroplan AB - the Swedish Airplane Corporation. Much of the badging and grille design reflects that heritage, and SAAB was also engaged in airplane design and production throughout the 96 era. Hagertys' value in 2010 of this car in "good" condition is $8100. Excellent condition $13,400
