Saab 96/9-3

Saab9693

It’s time for another chassis-swap build, and this time the donor car and recipient are both Saabs. The builders are combining the classic shell of a Saab 96 with the modern underpinnings of a Saab 9-3, with the goal of creating a little unassuming Swedish track tearer.

Thanks to James from Car Throttle for submitting.

Update: This build is now complete, I have added new images and links at the bottom of the post.

    This is a breath of fresh air in the swap world instead of a Gm LS into everything!!!

    I like the way the 96 shell is just dropped onto the 9-3 chassis! They made that bit look easy! Not sure about the front arches but the rear arches & lights are absolutely awesome! Cool thread!

    Wow! Probably the both fastest and widest SAAB 96 ever build.
