Car Catcher: This 1972 Saab Sonett III Is the Alternative Swedish Sports Car

By the time this 1972 Saab Sonett III debuted, Saab had ditched its old two-stroke motors of yore and switched to a Ford-sourced 1.7-liter V4. While the engine only produced around 65 horsepower, the Sonett was still a spirited driver thanks in no small part to its under-2000 pound curb weight. Hagerty values a No. 2 example at just under $11,000. Find this Sonett III on offer from Bring a Trailer with six days left and the bidding currently at $9000.

I'd love to have one of these that actually drives. I've had 2 over the years, yet I've never even been a passenger in one.

I used to HAAATE these things when I was younger. Now? I want one so badly. Don't you still have one?

Not any more. The closest thing that I still have is the '72 95V4. There's another member here with an excellent build thread for one though.
