Some Saab Museum cars to be sold

Last month the City of Trollhättan together with Saab AB and financially supported by the Wallenberg Foundation bought the Saab Car Museum collection for SEK 28 million. And not suprisingly they now say that some of the cars will be put up for sale.

The car collection consists of around 130 cars and according to the new owners, the City of Trollhättan and Saab AB, not all cars are of interest to the museum.

"It's not necessarily only cars that can be sold. Among other things, there is a complete workshop down at the Saab Museum," said Paul Åkerlund, Mayor of Trollhättan, to TTELA.

According to the agreement between the City of Trollhättan and Saab AB, Trollhättan owns 70 percent of the museum and Saab 30 percent. The City of Trollhättan will together with the region of Western Götaland be responsible for the day to day management of the museum.

Saab AB will be allowed to borrow cars from the museum and the museum could even borrow planes from Saab for exhibit.

So if anyone fancy an old Saab deemed of not to be of exhibit value, then your chance may be just around the corner!
