Saab 96 (white bodywork, sideview)

Despite its curious looks the Saab 96 has long been admired for its excellent performance and rally winning ability. Following on from the success of the original two-stroke models the 96 V4 made its debut in 1966, using the new Ford-Germany V4 engine.

The 1498cc V4 drove the front wheels and thanks to its 65bhp could take the car above 90mph. Other mechanical features included a column gear change and front disc brakes. The unique bodystyle was only available in two-door saloon format, although a near identical estate car derivative, the 95, was also available.Practical Classics April 2002 - Featuring Buyers Guide Saab 95&96 1960-1980 available.  Click here to view in our shop.
