On This Day


Thursday 18th August 1955

65 years ago

The Saab 93 was announced. Styled by Sixten Sason, it had a longitudinally-mounted 3 cylinder 748 cc two-stroke engine giving 33 hp (25 kW). The gearbox had three gears, the first unsynchronised. A freewheel device was fitted to overcome oil starvation on overrun (engine braking) for the two-stroke engine. The 93 was the first Saab to be exported from Sweden, with most exports going to the US. A Saxomat clutch and a cabrio coach (large cloth sunroof) were available as options.
