This is the same one from the Saab collection from way back, right? All the other cars are still fine, I hope.

what an awesome little car

these are such wacky looking little cars, and that's a good reason why I love em. the merger of curvy and angular in the design and the little fins. this one has a great fade to the paint. I would drive this in a heartbeat.

I had a friend who bought the sedan version of this car because he thought it was so cool. He didn't even know where to put the fuel in or that it had a two cycle engine.

They are really cool looking cars and this one looks great.Nice photos, great profile shot.

Later models came with a british ford V4 I believe. Not sure when the switch occured, I'm a 99 guy.

J+ : The short nosed models had 3-cylinder two cycle engines, this is a long nose mode so with a V4 from Ford, here in Finland starting from 1967. We also made those in Uusikaupunki by Saab-Valmet, very popular car here whole 70s and almost whole 80s too.

95 is always a station wagon and 96 a sedan, here and in Sweden they didn't have other names, just the number.

Finnish Post was using 95s as post delivery cars at countryside.

I wish the Finns would bugger off.

So this one is Fjord powered being '69? Notice the Volvo 240s on either side of it?

The perfect Portland car.

As for the short/long nose and 2stroke/4-stroke: The long nose was introduced in MY 1965 (with the painted mash grille), while still being delivered with the 2-stroker. The V4 engine came in 1966, and for about 2 years both engines were delivered simultaneously. This 95 is clearly a V4. The chrome grilled models were never 2-stroke.

The car itself looks like it could still be restored. You know, you just have to make some several fixes in it and it's all good. It could help you transport stuff or could even serve as your own car, vintage cars are no joke, we all know that.

Cars like this one deserve a restoration. I bet it will be classic once it undergo to repair.

Now there's another old-school family car. Looking at cars like these reminds me of how 60's cars have that aggressive look in them, like boxy american muscle or curvy european sport.

Some would say that these cars are junk since they are already old; it’s somehow true but on a brighter side, these cars can be remodeled and transformed into a new one. It’s just a matter planning and of course, choosing the right car parts.
