Saab's entire heritage fleet up for sale
The chances of Saab surviving have been dealt an especially poignant blow with the news that its liquidator has put the company's entire heritage fleet for sale.
Yes, the entire inventory of the Saab Heritage Museum is available to the highest bidder, as Swedish law company Delphi, in charge of killing Saab softly, tries to recoup some money.
Over 120 cars are available, with Delphi having advertised the entire lot on its website and requested email or fax bids by noon on Friday 20 January. (At the time of publishing the specific Saab sale link on Delphi's site is dead, but we'd expect it to return shortly...)
Delphi has advertised the cars on a 123-page PDF including images of every car, the oldest being a 1946 Saab 92001, aka the Ursaab.
Saab's heritage fleet is naturally the most complete collection of historic and unique Saabs in the world, and includes mint examples of Saabs spanning every decade since the '40s, including one-off show cars.
So, if you liked the look of the Aero-X Concept back in 2006, it can now be yours - though sadly Saab's last madcap concept, the PhoeniX, isn't included in the sale.
You could also own a one-off 9-6X crossover, based on the effectively one-off Subaru B9 Tribeca.
Bidders can make offers on their own terms, which is to say they can bid for just one car, any group, or all of them.
No doubt some surprise bidders will emerge. We'll let you know...
