Mid 1980s the American Saab importer came up with the idea of selling a convertible version of the already successfully landed 900, especially in the sunny states of the US a convertible 900 would be considered very attractive. In Sweden this was not particularly a priority. Understandable. And so, it started. 900 hardtops were delivered to Valmet (reputable producer in the industry, that for example built the Boxster for Porsche) located in Finland where they made the cars into convertibles. Evidently equipped with required reinforcement and different doors to hug the large sills. This production process made it very costly to build a 900 convertible. As a result of this and high taxes on vehicles the catalogue price of a 900 convertible in The Netherlands at the time was around fl.100.000, - Almost twice the price of a hardtop 900. At the time that kind of money would also buy you an apartment. The model gained appreciation over the years, and, because there are not a lot of alternatives, is nowadays a looked after car. After all, which convertible offers aside fun also this amount of practical space and safety. Meanwhile they are 25 years old which makes it harder and harder to find a nice and scarcely used example. Imagine my joy when I found this highly original and unique condition 900. The body of the car still wears its original and only coat of Cherry Red, which remains deeply lustrous. On behalf of garage-keeping in a dry and heated environment the body remains rust free, the rubbers supple and deep black, and the convertible top as new. It is rare for me to see a classic 900 with such low mileage, and especially in this condition. From the overall condition 'museum-worthy', still I would rather see it drive into the sunset. Will be delivered with a new MOT, warranty and a service.
This 900 Classic is fitted with air-conditioning, four electric windows, central locking, anthracite leather, an electrically operating convertible roof fitted with a heated rear screen, power steering, heated seats, radio/cd player with detachable front, etc.
