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. Therefore I was very pleased with the find of this black 900 convertible that I sold once before back in 2005. The convertible roof could use some attention, on all other aspects the car remained in excellent condition on behalf of regular maintenance. This 900 I supplied originally with 58.000km, in fifteen years the family I sold it to drove a mere 33.000km, and only with good weather. On behalf of (insulated) garage keeping the body remains wholly original and rust free. The convertible roof has been replaced inclusive of the rear screen. It is very rarely that I see classic 900s with true low mileages, and especially not with this background. Note the lustrous paint, the service history inclusive of invoices, and the way this car has been treated. Judging from the overall condition and much looked after colouration a very attractively priced 900 classic convertible. Will be delivered with a new MOT, warranty and a service.
