Things to know about this Things to know about this 1953 SAAB 92B De Luxe
Bought sight unseen in Sweden in early 2014! The description “gott skick” (good condition) might have been a result of the seller‘s perceptual disorder and was definitely far away from actuality.... It took almost four years to complete the search for spare parts, suppliers and specialists that were able to put the SAAB in a condition worthy of calling it “gott skick”. By now, the car's performance has become breathtaking again and knowing about the efficiency of the braking system the driver can fully enjoy the decelerating speed range. In case of emergency, one could just as well use the “suicide doors” as brake flaps. The shock absorbers (made in the UK) are adjustable from „Comfort“ to „Sport“ and enable cornering speeds close to a power slide. The extract below shows the extensive operations, new parts and custom-built models (not to mention the invested money and life time):

„Beauty is the summation of parts working together in such a way that nothing needs to be added, taken away, or altered!“ This definition perfectly fits this SAAB! Whoever feels differently cannot be a true SAAB fan! It puts an expression of positive shock on everybody who can catch a glimpse of it: "A plane without propeller or wings!"
