In the process the original interior was retained. The bodywork is in superb condition showing crisp panel-fit and very good paintwork. The original interior is largely in good condition, showing some wear and tear to the seat facings and the odd stain. All the original details are present like the semaphore trafficator arms and the wood rimmed Saab steering wheel! Mechanically the car is in very good condition, the car drives and sounds splendidly! The engine is a 750 cc two-stroke unit fitted with a 750 GT cylinder head. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a three-speed gearbox with a steering-column operated shift-lever. This special Swedish classic model is listed on the Mille Miglia eligible car list. So, you might be granted an entry for this legendary Italian event with this car!
