TR team have been recommissioning this Saab 99 for the owner as it hasn’t been on the road since 1993! Many areas had already been addressed before it arrived to them. The original engine had sadly seen damage to the cylinder bores so another was provided by the customer which needed some work which can be seen in the pictures.

Many mechanical tasks were carried out on the car, from a new water pump, timing chain and guides and wastegate assembly. Engine assembly components were vapour blasted or re-plated.
