Description:

  • History: This car competed in the Barber Saab Pro Series for several years starting in the first season in 1986. It was turned into a "roller" of a show car used to promote the racing series during the last couple seasons of the series. The chassis' of all Barber Saab Pro Series cars were constructed by Mondiale Cars out of Ireland while many ancillary components like the front and rear wing structures, etc. were fabricated for Mondiale by SPA in England. A great overview of the Barber Saab Pro Series, the many great drivers that started their pro driving careers in it and the champions of each year of the series can be found on Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barber_Pro_Series.
