160 MPH. 1988 Saab 900 Turbo Convertible SiS(Springtime In Sweden edition) Has newly installed "ultra rare" GM55806 Transmission w/8 Series Gear Set which is 22 yr old "new stock" found still boxed in a dealership in Europe. This transmission will take engine to 160mph... a true European Saab. Only 200 miles has been put on this rebuilt engine. I am the 2nd owner and it has been well maintained from its beginning w/all original receipts kept. The car is in excellent condition as a lot has been put into the rebuild/restoration of this unique Saab. The car has original paint (came from SW USA - no rust) though the bumpers were painted black (it just made them look smarter). I've replaced black convertible top, found and installed the orig. radio/cassette w/equalizer. Now also has original hardtop tonneau cover w/bag. Comes with original owner manuals w/case and also a new factory Saab First-aid kit and Bently Service Manual. The engine was rebuilt with hand-made Wossner pistons 0.20 thousandths over, new rods and main bearings, new Comet Gaskets & seals, timing chain, oil pump, reconditioned cylinder head, Pirelli P4 tires, new brakes, Stage 1 cams, water pump, starter, a/c compressor, alternator, Saachs clutch kit, new clutch pressure plate and bearings, a new hyd line for the clutch, new motor mounts, B&G suspension system springs (frt & rear), 4 new Bilstein shocks, new radiator hose, new ignition switch and key tumbler/gear set (had car keyed the same). Also has new Mass air flow sensor, new i-iac motor, RBM Short Shifter and performance PCM and Injectors. Recently spent $2,000 on Turbo RBM - no more Turbo lag. It spools up as soon as the car starts moving. You would not know it is a Saab 900. I have saved all of the original parts in case someone wants to turn it back into a plain SiS. I have done this work for myself to drive a truly European Saab...not to please anybody in the car clubs. For health reasons I can no longer keep this car, but I truly believe that anyone who buys this car will be more than happy with it. It's a great ride, and a lot of fun to drive. More pics are available...just email me. I can provide copy of an email I received from John Libbos, Product Manager for Saab Cars North America, Inc. verifying his tracking of my Vin# identifying that this car was part of the 288 SiS edition convertibles made in 1988 for each of the dealerships in the US that year. I have a new dash that I found in the UK that is in great shape. And the list of the work that has been done goes on and on and on.
