Here are the details published in the appeal: “Attention SAAB Enthusiasts who hate seeing old rare SAABies get euthanized! Cocoa needs a home and someone who isn’t intimidated by her flaws and sees her true potential ASAP! She runs and drives and comes with spare parts. I’ve had many people interested since I first put her for sale in October, but no offers. Price is and has always been negotiable. I can no longer invest any energy in her as a project and the garage she’s living in is no longer mine. Please save her from the SAABy Rainbow Bridge! ”
We hope that this appeal will be heard by some of the true fans of the Saab cars, and find the money and places for this beauty.
And below, here are the details of the car itself.
