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.
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.
