On Friday, June 8th, 2007 I toured the newly renovated in 2005, Saab Museum in Trollhättan, Sweden. At the Saab Museum, you will see everything from the first Saab prototype Ursaab 92001 to the Aero-X and this time, just about every vehicle was on display.

At this years Saab Festival, I managed to take a number of photos of the vehicles with particular attention paid to the written descriptions displayed in the windshields of many of the models being showcased. In the near future, you should expect to see more photographs of these vehicles along with some good descriptions about them and why they were important to Saab’s history and continue to be while being held in the safe confines of the Saab Car Museum in Trollhättan, Sweden.

The Saab Museum’s curator is Peter Backström, whom is responsible for the organization and managing of the Saab Festivals. Peter Backstrom has his work cut out for him with the events, records and archives that need to be managed while also continuously maintaining and preserving all of the vintage Saab models at a high standard and ensuring that all Saabs are mechanically and electrically sound at all times.

The Saab Museum is an incredible and somewhat overwhelming experience that I suggest you visit if you have not done so already.

    Ian Jones,

    Thank you for your contribution. I think they still have it, but I have not seen it in quite some time. Do you have any photos from when you put it together? Your contribution here to Saab History would be very nice to see. Please e-mail me any photographs you have from your time working on this rare vehicle.

  1. Saab History » Bob Sinclair’s Drive in the California Mile - 1996 - March 13, 2008

    […] An ideal solution presented itself – an exchange with the Saab Car Museum in Trollhättan, Sweden. Sinclair explained, “With the blessings of Felix Bosshart of Charles River Saab in Massachusetts, who was chairman of the council at the time of my retirement, I worked out a swap with museum curator Peter Bäckström. Now the museum has a much more desirable car for display, and I have a more practical car for my own particular uses.” The Saab 93B was shipped from Sweden to Sinclair’s home in Santa Barbara, Calif., arriving on May 2, 1996.
