Saab 93A De Luxe, year 1957. Colour beige combined with a two-tone black-red interior. This magnificent Saab 93A De Luxe was sold new in Sweden. In the year 2012 the car was imported to the Netherlands and made ready to participate in the 2013 Mille Miglia (1000 Miglia) in Italy. This gorgeous Saab 93 was one of the 357 historic cars which were allowed to participate in 2013, and the only Saab! Especially for his event, the car was fitted with two black bucket seats with Sparco 4-point safety harnesses, the original seats (and seat belts) are still with the car and can easily be put back in place. From day one the car has known four owners, the history is fully known and documented from new, the car comes with two file folders, a Swedish and a Dutch instruction manual and an original sales brochure. This classic Saab 93A is in an excellent condition and the car drives and sounds delightfully! The bodywork is completely sound, and it shows wonderful paint. The interior is in a wonderful condition with only the slightest signs of previous use. The mechanical components are in a very good condition and the engine was overhauled. The Saab 93 features a 3-cylinder in-line two stroke engine and a 4-speed manually operated gearbox with a shift-stick on the steering column. The Saab two-stroke does not brake on the engine compression because of a so-called ‘free-wheel’ function. The Saab 93 was a very successful rally car. From 1956 until 1960 the Saab 93 competed successfully in many important rallies and rally championships. In 1957 Charlie Lohmander and Harald Kronegård competed in the legendary Italian 1000 Miglia road race. (Then a gruelling and very dangerous race over public roads, nowadays a fast but safe historic regularity touring rally). They entered the race privately without the Saab factory knowing about the participation. Their surprising class victory only became known after their return to Sweden! Thanks to this 1000 Miglia participation the Saab 93 is a Mille Miglia ‘eligible’ automobile. This gorgeous Saab 93A De Luxe shows wonderful original details like the Saab steering wheel and the large tachometer, and the car is fitted with period correct Halda Tripmaster distance meters.
