My swedish is, believe it or not, more or less perfect!
I dont really want to translate everything, but the article starts of with directions to the place where the camper is 'first right after the arctic circle, then after the second lampost, follow the river for about 50 metres downstream.'
Theres a bit of waffle, then a bit of a description about the interior '2 burner gas cooker, double bed, space in the glove box for boat motor.'
It was the second of two prototypes, the first was on SAAB 92 bits, this on SAAB 95.
Incidentally Brian, theres a big Volvo meet planned here in August (I think)...any interest for your trip?
Does this mean that the original 3 cylinder 2-stroke engine was replaced by a V4?
'Den trecylindriga tvåtaktsmotorn byttes ut mot en V4 på 1970-talet och Björn Lindell minns när han 1976'
I can't even decipher IKEA assembly instructions when they are translated into English but I've had a few Saabs over the years including a two 96V4s and that sort of makes sense. In the specification there is a mention of something that sounds a bit rude with a a figure of 100-110 kph which is a little over 60 mph. I wonder if that is the top speed; either way the mind boggles
To attempt to answer all of your questions. The link is a magazine article, and it isn't for sale.
It was built by a man called Torsten Johannesson, who owned a company called 'Biltjänst' that still exists today. Only the two prototypes were ever built, but is was planned to build around 20 per year, if the was enough interest.
The cruising speed is 85kmh, and max. speed 100-110kmh. It originally had a two stroke SAAB, but got a V4 in 1976.
