Jim, it was nice working with you.  I am not sure if I will do anything to the car (1970 GTO), but it really is a lot better car than I thought originally because the price was so good.  I am glad I came to look at it and have my mechanic check it out.  I will keep up with your cars because I still want to add to my collection as I can.  Thank you again.  AB, AL

I highly recommend Jim with Classic-Car Store to help you find your next classic vehicle. Jim was instrumental in helping me find my 1966 Ford Mustang GT. The experience was so successful that I asked him to help me find my next "forever" car. Jim is very responsive, follows up and has excellent communication skills.   

THANK YOU very much.... 5 STAR GOOGLE RATING by Dennis Lareau, FL



Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS

1974 Saab Sonett III

“Almost” a Barnfind! This is a second owner car pulled out of an Alabama storage garage, stored since 2007. The car is currently 49 years old and originally from the
State of Pennsylvania. The original mileage is shown as 55, 208 miles. This car has
spent a great part of its life in storage, with no rust in the floor pan, which is
highly unusual for Saab Sonetts.

Current Condition
The car is not running because of sitting the brake and clutch hydraulics are locked up. Parts
were almost impossible to find but because this car has become a very collectable car
many of the normal maintenance (and other pars as well) they have become much more available. Ebay and other online sellers have these parts, mostly coming from Europe. Some of the regular maintenance parts also fit other SAAB model cars.

This Sonett was driven into storage in 2007. The motor turns freely with a good, charged battery. The oil is clean, but obviously needs changed. The fuel tank needs cleaned and the carburetor needs to be rebuilt.

Paint and Interior
It wears an older repaint and some interior work was done while it was being driven in the early 2000’s. The overall quality as it is would make it a good Driver, but certainly capable of show quality with full restoration. Fiberglass is in good condition for an original fiberglass car.

Title & Paperwork
All cars pre 1972 were not titled in Alabama. All that is necessary for transfer to another owner is an Alabama Registration and Bill of Sale from current owner. This Sonett does have and comes with its books and many other manuals for the 1974 SAAB Sonett.
