Saab 95
(1959 - 1978)

The Saab 95 was a 7-seater, 2-door estate or station wagon introduced in 1959. Initially it was based on the Saab 93 saloon and 40 examples were produced. Note the doors. In 1960 the 93 became the 96 and the 95's development followed closely that of the Saab 96. It was because only 40 were made in 1959, production is often said to have started in 1960.

The first engine was an 841 cc three-cylinder two stroke engine, but from 1967 onward, it became available with the same four stroke Ford V4 engine as used in the Saab 96, the Saab Sonett V4 and Sonett III.  It had a four-speed manual gearbox. The rear-facing folding seat was dropped with the 1976 model, making the car a regular 5-seater. Production ended in 1978. A total of 110,527 were made.
