RealRides of WNY - 1971 Saab

We came across this 1971 Saab 96 V-4 a month or so ago in Youngstown. Volvo wasn’t the only Swedish car manufacturer to tout its safety-mindedness. Safety isn’t something you add on like an extra cigarette lighter or a strip of chrome, it has to be built in,” Saab brochure copywriters told us. Before they were mandated by the U.S. government, Saabs featured “shock-absorbing bumpers front and rear. And a tough steel body that can really take punishment.” The Saab was available as this 96 two-door sedan, and the 95 two-door station wagon (below), billed as “The station wagon that’s fun to drive.”
