This very nice Saab was restored in 1996 and had other work done since then. You don't see these early Sonett's very often and it looks they took great care with this restoration. The auction bid is currently up to $17,800 and the reserve has not been met yet. It is offered by a private seller.
A nice detail is the wood dash from a time when a dashboard was actually a board with some instruments mounted.
