1967 Saab 96 Crash Test

I found some still images of some early crash tests back in April and published them here on Inside Saab at that time.

Last week, we found the film from one of these tests. It’s from August 1967, and involves a frontal impact test performed on a Saab 96 at a speed of 50 km/h. It’s enjoyable both from a technical point of view, as well as being a window back in time into how things looked and worked back in the late 1960′s. The track they use today for crash testing at Saab is still in the same location, though it’s now much more sophisticated – and indoors :-)

…and Saabs are still among the safest of cars in the world!
