Saab 96

The Saab 96 is an automobile made by Saab. It was introduced in 1960 and was produced until January 1980.

As first designed it had an 841 cc, 38 hp (28 kW) three-cylinder two-stroke engine. In 1967 the 96V4 with a Ford four stroke 1498 cc V4 engine, originally developed for the 1962 Ford Taunus 12M, replaced the two-stroke 96. The V4 engine produced 65 hp (48 kW) and the car made 0-100 km/h in 16 seconds. In terms of bodywork, the front differed little from that of the Saab 93, but the rear was a new design which gave the 96 more internal space and a larger rear window.

The Saab 96 was driven by Erik Carlsson in several rallies in which he finished first: the 1960, 1961 and 1962 RAC Rallies, and the 1962 and 1963 Monte Carlo Rally.
