"I have, for many years, hankered after a Saab 900 Classic (pre 94) Convertible. For good measure the car needed to be a manual transmission. This model is very thin on the ground in New Zealand but I was lucky enough to spot one that turned out to be from Waimak Classic Cars. Buying a car unseen from 1500 km away was made very easy by Jesmond and Gloria. An inspection was quickly arranged and completed, and was accurate. Excellent communications made me feel very comfortable with the deal and now I have the vehicle I must say it is fantastic - exactly as described and promised.I highly recommend Waimak Classic Cars should you be in the market for such things."Stuart, Auckland, New Zealand
Since the Daimler Company was acquired by Jaguar, this is the first model to be introduced.
Ignoring minor details, this is a MK2 Jaguar powered by the 2.5ltr V8 engine inherited from the sports two seater Daimler SP-250. It is fitted with the Type 35 Borg-Warner Automatic transmission and all round Disk Brakes.
Interior trim is the traditional style with leather seats, a good deal of tasteful and subdued polished woodwork and clearly marked circular black dials for al the full set of instruments

This is one of the nicest examples in New Zealand with no expense spared on upkeep. Goes and drives extremely well – solid and stable on the road.
This lavishly equipped 5 seater saloon truly provided prestige motoring in the modern manner at the time. In our opinion, this car is an outstanding performer, whether at high speed on the motorway, or leisurely manoeuvring in town-traffic – the turbine like smoothness of its engine is truly remarkable. The automatic transmission gives it full engine braking at all ratios and moreover, provides for driver control with all its advantages.
A great classic car to own with classic lines and performance, that is sure to continue appreciating in the years to come. A Good Investment.
