Are there any 95V4 delivery vans known on this forum, in the UK as well as in the rest of the world? There's a chap on the Dutch Saabforum who says he has a one for sale and he wants to know what a good asking price would be. I haven't seen pictures yet, but I doubt it's original. I guess that original 95V4 panel vans, if they exist, are extremely rare. The only 95 vans that I know of, are strokers.


I actually have a project '77 95V4 that I'm planning to convert into a van, either a panel van or a box van (a 96 probably would be better for this conversion), not sure yet. Hope to see his car soon, to take some pictures.

Any info or pictures on any Saab van welcome!

Located the owner. It's a '63 stroker from Norway:

Found via Tumblr:

Looks fab! Wonder who's it is and whether it's a factory original van.

Funny, never noticed chapter 10 of the parts book is entirely dedicated to the van:

UK_Sub posted this one in my project thread (http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/speedball/topic.asp?topic_id=3027&whichpage=2), nice to feature it here as well:

(I've added the flip side here for your convenience. )

It comes from this Danish site: http://www.saab-brochuresamling.dk/namo2.htm (where you can also download it as a PDF).

There's also a 95 stroker van folder on it:



And someone posted this to the Dutch forum last week (he actually owns one!):



Keep 'em coming!

Ok, it's not a 95, but nevertheless cool:

Van on trailer "might give a clue to it's whereabouts?"
Off the wall guess. Swedish plates. 2005 Saab International at Essen Industrial Museum?

These are the pics I took of YBH when it was for sale at Beaulieu.

Cheers Simon! Both the drawing and the IMCDB-pics were in my archive already. The blue van's number plate looks Finnish, I'll ask my friend Jari in Finland (http://saab95.net/) if he knows the owner. I've also emailed the chap on who's site I found the pic. Hopefully more info soon.

Really like those chequer graphics (might have to 'borrow' that won day..), but can't make out the signwriting, might give a clue to it's whereabouts?

I found these, but not much use to you I guess...

Extremely cool car! Anyone who knows the car or its owner?

The 95's (or 96's) b-pillar leans forward whilst the seats lean a bit backward behind it, this means you would need to allow for some cab space in the box. Your photoshop has a very clever perspective for hiding al the nasty design bits.

Would be great to have a go though with a rotten 96, just to see if it would work!

Glad you like it!

As you say, photoshop is a lot easier than making it 'for real' - that box was borrowed from a Panhard version - looks like it converts to a pickup too. But that needs a 'cab' producing for the pick up to work properly - even more work!
