NEW SAAB-CAR PUT ON THE MARKET
SAAB 96 & 95 (1960-1979)
The 96 was first introduced in 1960. The main difference between it and its predecessor was the larger rear window. The engine had grown to 841cc and now produced 38 hp.
The car remained in production from 1956 to 1970. Seemingly indestructible, these cars are still seen in daily use on the roads today.
The 343 was designed by DAF before the take-over by Volvo, although DAF never manufactured it themselves.
