1967-1980 SAAB 96/95 V4


Overview

In 1967, the two-stroke that had served so well for 15 years was joined by a V4. The four-stroke 1498cc Ford Taunus V4 engine had been installed to take the 96 further upmarket, but also acted as an insurance against the threat of US-style emissions regulations in Europe. The first V4 96s produced 55bhp and 65bhp, and usefully boosted performance. Top speed was now over 90mph. It was in this form that the 96 remained to the end, gaining more equipment and impact absorbing bumpers before finally being retired in 1980.
