A Fabulous Flatnose is a rare car all the same, so finding one for sale is not so easy. Although, now might be the moment to orientate on one, since there is actually quite some choice in the market. Here are five available Fabulous Flatnoses from around the world:
#022196, my own former Flatnose, for sale in Chemnitz Germany (price n/a)
After quite a lot of work, the new owner of my Fabulous Flatnose has now put it on sale again (ad).
This is a manual with 214,000 miles and functioning well, including the top, A/C, central locking and even the Clarion audio system with equalizer:
#025556, a project car in need of TLC, Austin, TX, USA (price n/a)
This Flatnose is in need of quite some love and repairs, but doesn’t look all to bad (ad). It will be auctioned via Autobidmaster, after not having sold there in a previous attempt. The mileage is 264k.
The interior is far gone and the car is well used, but if you are in for a nice project with a rare Swede…
#unknown, for sale in Den Haag, the Netherlands, € 11.750 / USD 13,300
A nice and well taken care of Fabulous Flatnose. that is not yet in the register due to unknown serial number (ad).
It looks quite original and is the first Fabulous Flatnose that was registered in the Netherlands, in 1991. It is an automatic with 139,000 miles.
#025748, a great example in Hässleholm, Sweden, € 18.600 / USD 21,000
That’s right, prices for good examples are going up. And this automatic is one of the better cars that are out there (ad).
With just over 91,000 miles, it is one of the few examples with little experience.
#026379, a needy Flatnose in Myerstown, PA, USA for € 2.600 / USD 2,900
And there is this Fabulous Flatnose in the USA, that needs quite some attention to become the enjoyable convertible it was (ad).
Nonetheless it looks like a good base to start from and a lot of work has been done already.
Own a piece of Saab History, 1 of the first 300 convertibles commissioned by Robert Sinclair (very low vin number, 1 of the first 75 built). Restoration was started, has recent new convertible top, runs and drives, transmission shifts well, most all electrical functions including top, most lighting, gauges, heater ,etc. tested and operating, dashboard very good-only a couple small cracks, seat leather worn but usable. still needs some body work completed and paint and misc work. battery was relocated to trunk and larger oil cooler installed in battery area by previous owner.
So if you are looking for either a project car or a nice and ready example, it is time to get out there and check out these wonderful silver convertibles.
