The Saab 90 was a somewhat shortlived but nevertheless quite fascinating car that was only built for three years during the mid‑1980s. After the launch of the 900 in 1978, Saab became concerned that it didn't have a base, entry level model. So a prototype was created with the front end of a 99 and the middle and rear of a two‑door 900 saloon. The resultant car was dubbed the 90, to tie in with the 900 and the new 9000. In total, 25,378 Saab 90s were made, but the runaway success of the 900 overshadowed it, and in 1987 production ended after just three years. What was quite a rare car in its day is even rarer now.

This example, in Ivory with brown cloth interior, was registered in August 1985, but taken off the road in 1994. However, according to the vendor, it was kept in a good garage under a car cover. In September 2021, it was recommissioned with a complete new exhaust system, new rear brake calipers, overhauled front brake calipers, and new water and fuel pumps. The bill for the recent work totalled £1350.

The paperwork file includes the V5C, original Saab owner information wallet with owner's manual, Saab owners' club brochure, mid-1980s accessories list, Philips radio/cassette instruction manual, and a service book, which records services up to 36,473 miles in 1989. The present mileage is showing as 68,290, although this isn't warranted, while the current MoT is valid until September 2022. Two former registered keepers are noted on the V5C.

This Saab is extremely well-preserved, with its exterior and interior both in very good condition - only some sagging roof-lining, a very common fault on old Saabs, detracts slightly from a very presentable, tidy and clean cabin. The car also drives very well, with no apparent issues aside from a squealing fan belt when cold that would benefit with tightening.
