1960-1968 SAAB 95/96 Two-stroke specifications

1960-1968 SAAB 95/96 Two-stroke specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Saab 96 might have been marketed as a new car when launched in 1960, but it was very closely related to the original two-stroke front-wheel-drive 92 that had been around since 1949 and had proved to be a massive breakthrough in design. More than ten years on and the 96, with its aerodynamic styling, independent suspension and tenacious roadholding still seemed ultra-modern despite being a facelift. The 841cc two-stroke developed enough power to push the 96 to over 80mph while the standard seat belts appealed to safety-conscious drivers.
