Although Saturn models were highly prevalent on the roads in the mid-1990s, they’ve largely gone away, with many Saturn models seemingly disappearing over the last decade or so. It’s especially rare that you find one in unusually nice condition — but this is exactly that.
What you see here is a 1995 Saturn SC2 with leather upholstery and a manual transmission — and just 76,000 miles. It isn’t perfect, as you can spot a little wear in the interior, but it’s surprisingly close — and it’s surely one of the nicest Saturn models left in existence. It’s offered by Select Motors in Wichita, Kansas, for just $3,599, meaning you can live out your Saturn dreams without spending a fortune.
So how did this SC2 end up so perfectly preserved? The Carfax report gives us the obvious answer, which is that it’s a one-owner vehicle, purchased new by the first owner in August 1995, registered in suburban Wichita and owned there ever since. The car finally left the first owner in early 2018, going to an auction and then into dealership inventory where it remains.
For those of you who don’t remember the details of early Saturn vehicles, the SL was the sedan, the SW was the wagon and the SC was the coupe, like this one. “SC2” meant it was the top trim level (compared to the base SC1), and it boasted a 124-horsepower 4-cylinder — a reasonably sporty engine that surely has a lot of life left.
