Saab 99 Turbo Truck sketches

Jack Ashcraft is a unique combination of mechanic, artist, engineer, and thinker. Shortly after graduating Art Center College of Design in 1975, Jack began a series of sketchbooks. Literally a dozen or so 8.5″x11″ sketchbooks filled with hundreds of pages of mechanical drawings. Everything from dashboard layouts for a Saab Sonett, to one-off automotive creations. He’s even thrown in the occasional naked woman to keep things interesting.

Here’s just one interesting sketches his Saab 99 Truck:

Later sketches minus the sail panels:
