About this site

This site I hope will over time become a source of reference for the extra-ordinary vehicles built by Robert Solstad, and others to the same format. I hope to update it as more information becomes available. Please check back regularly.


Having been a Saab fan for a very long time, and having an attraction to weird and quirky engineering, the Solstad conversions had been on my radar for several years. My personal collection of Saabs has grown over the years, and I own and administer the worlds busiest Saab forum www.uksaabs.co.uk. The first Solstad that piqued my interest was the classic 900 based one shown in the photo on this page. Many years of seaching and following up leads lead to a chance discovery of the very same car listed incorrectly on a Swedish car sales site. Several emails later and a trip to Sweden was required to collect my purchase.


Solstad-Saab.com has been set up to try and collect the available information on the company and the vehicles, and hopefully also to provide a survivors database as these vehicles are getting on a bit now. If you can assist, with any information, please get in touch.
