1984 Saab 900 Lynx Engineering Conversion

Lot: 174

Sold for (£): Unsold
Offered for sale is a 1.9L 1984 Saab 900i Lynx Engineering Convertible manual that has been with the current owner for the last 7 years. Coming with an extensive history file, this lot's condition scores an impressive 108 / 135.

Classic Car Auctions says:

A very special car - 1 of 2 ever produced - and now the only surviving example.  Before Saab produced their own 900 convertible, Lynx Engineering (of Jaguar conversions fame) created two folding roof convertible/targa examples.  This project was discontinued soon after Saab took the convertible style on.  This actual car featured on the Lynx brochure and is completely original.  A truly irreplaceable car!
