Patina, original condition. This is the stuff that many automotive dreams are made of. Originality is becoming increasingly important in the scene. A Saab 93B De Luxe that can fulfill these wishes is called up during the summer campaign for collector vehicles. It is so wonderfully original.
Its paintwork is said to be the first, the Swedish license plates are also. The Saab was built in 1959, under its hood is a small but personable two-stroke engine with 3 cylinders. Its sound alone brings tears of joy to the eyes of many fans. It's the old troll sound. He fell silent to be replaced by the whistle of the turbocharger. But has not been forgotten until today.
In the case of the Saab 93B De Luxe, the sound is additionally enhanced by a soothing sports exhaust. Heart, what do you want more? The little Saab is in its original condition inside and out - with a very nice patina. Its signs of use stimulate the imagination that they could tell stories. And they make the car unique. The seats have holes in the covers, the covering is also from 1959. Covered with a stylish ceiling, you can leave it in this condition, or repair it. The Saab Museum could even help out with the original fabric.
1959 was the last year of construction with the "suicide doors" hinged on the back. The 93F followed in autumn with the doors hinged at the front. It was the intermediate model on the way to Saab 96.
The charm of the Saab 93B De Luxe
The two-stroke Saab is the safe entry ticket for every classic rally. Every Porsche, Mercedes or VW Beetle would usually be against him. It evokes the memory of the unforgettable Erik Carlsson and his legendary success. The wonderful sound from three cylinders makes even electric car drivers soft. Its patina and the stylish interior, which comes from a different time, make it desirable.
The auctioneers price the 93B between the equivalent of € 11.500 and € 13.500. It is quite possible that the charming Saab during the Auction reach that price, and will skip. The uncertainty is the current corona situation. If you are interested in a rare contemporary witness that has not been restored to death, you should keep an eye on the course of the auction.
It is hoped that the Saab 93B De Luxe will find the ideal buyer. Who would not restore it with perfection and rob it of its identity. It is carefully preserved, preserved and moved regularly.
