We’ve seen and featured a lot of sick replicating cars over the years, But this Eleanor Replica didn’t even come close. I swear every single time when people tried to do something different and customizing the american muscle car with anything else, things just fall apart.
This 1973 Saab Sonett Eleanor Replica did not dwell well, but he thought of creating a car as similar to the Eleanor as possible. The seemingly impossible job of decorating the old 1973 Saab Sonett with stylistic prospects of the Shelby GT500 Eleanor wasn’t a green light for the car enthusiast.
We really like to look into the mind of a person who wants to create an Eleanor replica out of an old Saab. Some strange things happen there for sure, no doubt about that. This particular Saab was presumably produced back in 1973. The third generation of the Swedish Sonett should have Italian design, an American engine and Swedish quality. However, it wasn’t that successful and the manufacturer only around 8000 Sonetts.
Regardless, the vehicle is far away from anything that could even loosely be linked with muscle cars. It has a length of 150 inches, a lever operated pop up headlights and a Ford four-cylinder engine giving the thing a power of mere 65 HP. A proper muscle car needs to have at least five times the power output.
Despite the hilarious exterior pack, this 1973 Saab Sonett Wanna Be Eleanor Replica is offered for sale on eBay and it seems that the auction ended at $5,400. Would you pay that kind of money for a car that isn’t even cool?
