If you like your classic cars quirky, you can’t get much quirkier than this 1972 Saab 95 Wagon just listed on Craigslist in Ellsworth, Maine where the private seller is asking $4,300. A quick check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his 95 priced $1,000 above the current #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $3,300.  

Swedish carmaker produced the Saab 95 two-door wagon from 1959 through 1978.  Surprisingly, Saab marketed their tiny two-door wagon as a seven-passenger car right through to 1975 when safety regulations made the rear-facing third seat a liability.  While famously known outside the U.S.for using a two-stroke engine equipped with a “freewheeling” mode to prevent engine seizing, from ’67 onward U.S. models came equipped with the same four-stroke Ford Taunus V4 engine connected to a four-speed manual transmission.   The Saab 95remained on sale in the United States until 1973.

With a fresh clutch installed last year and fresh tune, the seller indicates this his 95 is a great restoration candidate that from the limited pictures provided indicates its needs a fresh paint job over the solid body while the interior will need a complete redo.  If you dare to be different, this 95 is a tiny yet practical way to go.  Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“I am selling my Saab 95 because I have one too many projects at the moment. I thought I would keep this car forever and restore it but do not have the time. The car runs and drives and is a great candidate for restoration. It had the clutch done last year and a recent tune by my local shop. I have had it garaged and driven monthly the last 3 years. If you are interested please come and have a look. It is a 4 speed manual v4 and is a blast to drive. We can take all precautionary measures and I will leave keys in it for you when you arrive. I would also consider trades for small sailboats that can be tandem rowed 15-20ft Dory skerry Whitehall daysailer ect. price is negotiable. If the ad is still up, the car is available.
