Green Jelly Bean: ’68 SAAB 96 2-Stroke
You need not fear the reference to 2-Stroke. In this application, it is perfectly acceptable so do not go running for cholesterol lowering meds and baby aspirin. The SAAB 2-Stroke is a funky little engine that actually requires you to get involved in mixing its fuel. Yes, think of it as your John Deer weed wacker or chain saw. If you are into rallying or are a motor sports generalist, you’ll know of the incredible prowess the SAAB 96 had at rallying. Probably as famous as an Austin Mini Cooper that shared the same basic winning philosophy – weight over the drive wheels and some really skilled, fearless, crazy and suicidal drivers. We like this one, of course, because it is green and because it looks pretty original. The seller has owned it for years yet hasn’t put much mileage on it. So it may need some sorting in that department. The interior looks good and we think it could be converted to classic rally status in a heartbeat. Everything is said to work inside and out which shows the owner is into the details. It comes with manuals and original documents too. Click here for the eBay auction.
