A Saab 9000 convertible ?
This is a custom rebuild of a Saab 9000i, done by Björn Frykholm. It's a 50th birthday gift to himself. It took two years to accomplish, from 1993 to 1995. Many self made parts, the frame, the doors, interior parts. The canopy is a modified originally from Ford Escort. At least this I could understand from the google translated description from the swedish Saab turboclub forum thread.
The author of this masterpiece Björn Frykholm was for a time working with Robert Solstad, who did several special rebuilt Saabs, including convertibles as well as special transport vehicles. And this 9000 was not his first rebuilt Saab.
For more pictures definitely visit the mentioned Saab turboclub forum, there are more of this. This convertible is a nice addition to 9000 rebuilts including a couple of combis. Also here is one more interesting picture.
