Saab 93F ‘two-stroke’, 1960
Saab 93F, year 1960. Colour crème white combined with a grey / red cloth interior. This fantastic Saab ‘two-stroke’ was imported from Sweden in the past. In the Netherlands, the car has known two owners (Saab enthusiasts of course). This Saab 93F is in good and very original condition and the car drives perfectly! The car was very well maintained; the 850 cc three-cylinder two-stroke engine was overhauled, and the clutch renewed recently. Also, the seats and door cards were given new cloth upholstery recently. The two-stroke engine runs and sounds superbly and the four-speed gearbox (column shift) shifts perfectly. The front brakes were up rated with Saab 96 disc brakes. The red wheels, the large tachometer, and the period correct Marchal auxiliary spot and fog lamps give away the sporty aspirations of this fantastic Saab 93F!
