The Saab 95 was a 7-seater, 2-door station wagon made by Saab. Initially it was based on the Saab 93 sedan version, but the model's development throughout the years followed closely that of the 96 since the 93 was put off the market in 1960. It was introduced in 1959, but because only 40 were made in 1959, production is often said to have started in 1960.

The first engine was an 841 cc three-cylinder two-stroke engine, but from 1967 onward, it became available with the same four-stroke Ford Taunus V4 engine as used in the Saab 96, the Saab Sonett V4 and Sonett III, and the German Ford Taunus. It had a four-speed manual transmission.

There was a small handle on the firewall that, when pushed, put the car into a "freewheeling" mode. This allowed the driver to coast downhill without seizing the two stroke engine, but when power was needed the transmission would engage and the driver could power the car up hill again.

A rear-facing folding seat was dropped with the 1976 model, making the car a regular 5-seater. Production ended in 1978. A total of 110,527 were made.

For certain markets (Norway, Denmark) a special export version delivery van was available without a rear seat and rear side windows. Both commercial companies and private persons made conversions of the Saab 95 to a pickup truck.

My dad bought a 1960 Saab Wagon in the summer of 1960 from the dealer in Orlando Fla.. He was looking at another car and the dealer said that he would be much happer with the Saab Wagon, the problem was that he (the dealer) was going to use it in the new car parade in a week or so. My dad said ok that he would think about it till then. There was another problem to, there were onley two (2) Saab Wagons in the U.S. at the time. And very little was known of how the little car would do on a long trip. We, my mom dad & sister were moving to Hawaii and would travel from Fla. to Cal. ,and then ship the car to Hawaii. As it turned out my dad got the car and we went from Fla. to Pa. Ill. down to La. to Tx. & out to Ca.. We left on Halloween night after "Trick or Treat"
And traveled till a week be for Christmas. We were in Los Angeles till after new years day, then flew to Hawaii. The car arrived a few days later. Me dad kept that Wagon for ten (10) years in a Hawaii then sold it.
