HDF 918L was partially dismantled some years ago in preparation for a restoration that stalled. It was recently rescued by Ant Anstead of Evanta Motors for Series 2 of Channel 4's 'For the Love of Cars' and has now been restored by Ant, working with the team at restoration specialists MRH in Hertford. Firstly, the shell was stripped and assessed, and then all welding repairs were completed before it could be painted in the original Saab Ambragelb Y8B.
The original engine, gearbox and ancillaries were then rebuilt with new or reconditioned components and modern electronic ignition was fitted in order to improve cold starting and reliability. The wiring and electrical systems were renewed or restored and the fuel system was also rebuilt with modern materials.
A single choke Weber carburettor was fitted in order to utilise its manual choke. The brakes, steering and suspension were also rebuilt with new components throughout and fitted with poly bushes.
As such, it represents a fine opportunity to purchase a superb Saab 96 which could equally be used as an everyday car or make a fine show car.
