1964 Saab 96 D Production Race Car

$14,000.00 $12,000.00

This 1964 Saab 96 was built in to a race car in 2009 for long-time Saab racer Bill Thew. The car features a three-cylinder two-stroke built by Tom Donney with 72.5mm Wiseco pistons, triple Solex carburetors, stage two porting, and an electric water pump.

The engine is paired with a 4-speed column-shifted manual and the car features a roll cage, Wilwood front brakes, widened front soccer ball wheels, and a trunk-mounted fuel cell. The seller purchased the car with the intention of converting it back to a road car, but has since decided to leave it as a racer. This Saab 96 is sold with a logbook and a bill of sale.

Power comes from a 2-stroke inline-three which was reportedly built by Tom Donney in March 2017. The engine is paired with a 4-speed column-shifted manual transaxle. Modifications include an engine overbore to 72.5mm and installing Wiseco pistons, Toms rods, large polymer-coated end bearings, balanced rods, 29mm silver-coated top end bearings, an electric water pump, and stage two porting.

The engine is fed by a trio of Solex carburetors. Originally oil-injected, the pump and oil tank have been removed and the car set up for 32:1 premix. Some spare parts are included, including an extra engine block, head, oil tank, oil injection pump, and carburetor jets

The car was reportedly repainted in white when it was converted to a race car. Saab graphics are worn on both rear flanks and a front valance is equipped.

Saab soccer ball style wheels are fitted at the rear, and custom widened soccer balls with a steel outer section are fitted at the front. Wilwood front brakes are fitted, which the seller states are legal for vintage racing.
