1999 Saab 9-3

I have a clean example of a special car for sale. 1 of 420 original Viggen coupes released and offered in the iconic lightning blue with two tone interior. After 1999 Saab began offering Viggen trim on 5 door and convertible models, and while those are great cars in their own right, this version will remain the quintessential Viggen.
A well sorted car, with a lot of recent maintenance and restoration upgrades done. I have all the receipts for work performed and will provide for the prospective buyer. I know the market for these cars and am confident that this one is worth every penny of my asking price. You can find higher mileage examples near the $4-6k mark, and cream puff garage queens in the $11-14k range, and this one resides in that sweet spot where you can revel in its unique charm while also not feeling bad about putting some more miles on it!
I am the 3rd owner, and have owned the vehicle for 1 year. I have only put 2,000 miles on the car during my ownership. Here is a list of the work I have performed on the car.
  • Upgraded Rear anti-roll bar, and "viggen rescue kit" steering rack brace installed from taliaferro saab.
  • Replaced front shocks (OEM Sachs/Boge "sport") and installed somepolyurethane bushings.
  • Fuel filter, In cabin air filter, Manual trans flush (OEM SAAB synthetic), and oil change
  • Wiper blades, crankcase vent update kit, battery insulation cover, new viggen emblems
  • Factory SAAB all weatherfloor mats sourced (will include cloth ones too)
  • 4 Brand new Viggen Alloy wheels (also have the 9-5 aero "klingon" wheels pictured if interested)
  • Rear hatch resprayed due to some surface corrosion beneath the rear spoiler. Rear spoiler reattached using SAAB service bulletin fasteners
  • New frontdownpipe and catalytic converter
  • 6 new upgraded speakers installed to the factory stereo
  • New key with integrated fob/ keyless entry (spare standard key included as well)
Within the last month, the A/C started to blow warm. I believe it is the thermo switch mounted on top of the compressor. I haven't had time to replace this. Considering the age of the vehicle, it would probably be prudent to replace the compressor if already performing the labor to do this job. Everything else on the HVAC system is functioning perfectly, so there shouldn't be any surprisesthere.
I am selling the vehicle because I only have 1 garage space, and my 84' VW Westfalia is in need of some TLC. I can't budget the time and funds for multiple vehicles.
I can help with shipping, and will do my best to answer any questions. Cheers!
