Thought of Jesda when I saw this today.

A whole lot of uniqueness for the selling price of just $4100!

Wow, that's in shockingly good condition. Usually the interiors of these are trashed.

I can kind of imagine how it smells -- the awesomely pungent mix of glues, vinyls, and fabrics from half a century ago.

^^^ I had no idea that they were still making that model Saab in 1967. Unfortunately (for the sake of "real" Saab eccentricity) they had replaced the original Saab 95 (/) series two cycle engine with a four cycle engine four cylinder in the early sixties. The one I used in East Africa was a mid fifties coupe with the 2 cycle power plant. I came to admire the little car for its' almost indestructibility and its' ability to maintain a 60 mph speed for long distances on Eritrean roads ..... all the while getting well over 30 mpg in the process.

There's something refreshingly honest (albeit deadly) about the little Saab's all metal dashboard.
Great instruments and vintage steering wheel.

An uncle of mine had a mid '60s Saab with the V-4 two stroke engine. I'll have to ask him about it more next time I see him.
