Stahlberg 1:20 Saab 900 Turbo

Inliner was totally correct when he presumed this fine plastic automobile is a Stahlberg. While not diecast (the only metal on this car is the axles) I still could not resist bringing it home. It’s in excellent condition and I love the details all over this piece. The scale is just spot-on. For a plastic car, they did an excellent job with the fit and finish. Sure, today’s resin models blow this away. But, by 1983 standards, this is amazing.

It still needs a good cleaning. I can’t find any signs of playwear at all on this. So I bet it sat on someone’s shelf for a long time until... well... now it’s going to sit on my shelf for a long time.

The mudflaps won me over. Not a common detail on any car really. The blue interior is really hard to take pics of but all the normal Saab details are there. Thanks for looking!
