This Saab Sonett in Baja Red looks like new and only has 9,500 miles. This Sonett was originally sold in Illinois and the suggested retail price was $5,333 in 1974. It is currently offered for sale by Mohr Imports in Monterey, California for $20,500. It is also listed on eBay with a Buy-it-Now price of $19,950.
It's interesting to note the model shows as a Saab 97 on the invoice. As you may know, Saab skipped from model name 96 to 99. 97 for the Sonett was not officially used. The 98 was a project car and never made it into production.
$20,000 for a Saab Sonett seems quite a bit of money for a Sonett. I used an online inflation calculator and $5,333 in 1974 is equal to $27,000 in 2012. The current asking price seems very reasonable when you keep the low number of miles and perfect condition in mind.
