Black Saab 99 Turbo Finlandia
This is 1 of only 3 ever produced Saab 99 Turbo Finlandia cars, of the second series 99 Finlandia's of which 17 were produced as a GLE (and without the extra side window between the front and rear door) with both elongated front and rear door both 100 mm so altogether it is 200 mm longer car.

The only series of which 3 had a turbo engine installed .THIS IS CAR NUMBER 9 and there is a car history to be found in the internet

First series with the extra side window between the front and rear door was only supplied with the injection engine (GLE).
This car was only produced for the Finnish marked and done in Finland.

Chassis number 9978600.... Date of first registration 25th April 1978 in Finland.

I am the 3rd legal owner since August 2008 (imported from Finland).

I tried to buy this car back in 2004 but was just a few seconds late. I kept on track of the car and was able to acquire it for the collection in August 2008.

Between 2004 and 2008 it was stored at the premacis of a Finnish Saabclub member, now a very dear friend of mine.

My intention is to get this unique car back on the road for the international Saabclub meeting in Finland in 2011.
