Saab, an acronym for the Swedish aircraft maker Svenska Aeroplan AktieBolaget, developed a strategy to build production automobiles as the answer to converting their military aircraft capacity to peacetime production at the conclusion of WWII. Often described as an airplane without wings, the Model 92 (earlier model designations belonged to Saab aircraft) was created as a rugged, low cost car designed to conquer the rough and wintery Swedish roads of the time. Reflecting its aircraft heritage, the Model 92 utilized a monocoque one-piece body/frame structure, yielding light weigh and great strength (safety). Its front wheel drive not only delivered good traction on snow, but also a flat floor and roomy interior. Produced from 1949 to 1955, the Saab 92 exemplifies the innovation and design that are the icons of the Saab brand.
