For some reason SAAB didn´t use the designation 95/96 on the cars or in ads between 1965-70. On the homemarket they were just marketed as SAAB Sedan and SAAB Herrgårdsvagn with the addition V4 for cars with that engine. I had to check up about the US-market, and it seems to have been the same there: http://mclellansautomotive.com/photos/B30632.jpg

So, to be correct this is a 1968 SAAB Station Wagon V4 (It has got the higher windshield introduced -68)

Earlier cars are just 95 or 96. 1969-70 the sedan is called just SAAB V4, and the wagon is V4 Herrgårdsvagn. From 1971 Sedan/Herrgårdsvagn is dropped from the name and they are simply 95 V4 and 96 V4.

Probably yes, but it´s a british car (with some fake arabic numberplate) and I don´t know what they were called. Probably SAAB Estate.

Yes, the Saab 95 and Saab 96 are basically the same car from the B pillar forward; the 96 is the sedan version, the 95 the station wagon/combi/estate version.
Unlike '9-5', which was used for all versions, sedan or estate.

If this vehicle came from USA, then it should be listed as 1965/66 SAAB 95 3 cylinder version. It does not have federally mandate backup light. It also does not have federally mandate side marker. It doesn't even have a V4 logo on the front fender either. If DAF555 says it is a 1968 version, perhaps it is a Mexician version. In this movie, according to filming location at IMDb, listed both at USA and Mexico.

It´s a 1968 due to the large windshield, so it can´t be a 2-cycle engine since they still had the small windshield for the US-market. It´s been stripped of all trim and even back-up lights and side markers that it should have had. But it does have the orange turn indicators of 1968 models. It´s about 18 years old in the film so a lot of things could have happend to it through the years.
Here some samples from the 1968 brochure of how it would have been equipped originally, the second shows a swedish car but you can see the designation in the text:

So, 1968 SAAB V4 Station Wagon [95]
