UPDATE 3/15/17 – Jason has decided to drop the price to $15,500. That seems fair for such an exclusive and potent machine!
FROM 2/26/17 – Now this is an interesting and fun find! The Fox body Mustang can be quite the fun machine in stock form, but after Saleen got their hands on this convertible, it should be an all out rocket. The 302 V8 has been worked over, with a Vortex Supercharger to give it a little extra kick! When it was brand new, this was likely the fastest convertible around, heck it’s probably still fast by modern standards. Jason F found this Mustang back in 2012, drove it a little and then parked it in the garage and that’s where it’s been since. Rather than let it go to waste, they’ve decided it’s time for it to go to a new home. If you’d love to be the next owner of #716, you can find it in Greenville, South Carolina with an asking price of
$18,500 $15,500. If interested, please use the contact form below!
As great as Saleen’s body kit and interior are, you didn’t buy one of these for the visuals. You bought it for what is under the hood. Saleen worked the 302 over and strapped a Vortech supercharger to it, bring horsepower up to nearly 300! I know, you can buy a new Mustang and get more power than that and still get better fuel mileage, but you won’t have something nearly as special as this.
Here is that supercharger in all of its forced induction glory! It’s amazing that such a simple bolt-on part could add so much performance to this Mustang.
The interior is a mixture of factory Ford parts and custom Saleen bits. The seats are probably most eye catching upgrade, but they also changed out the steering wheel, shifter, gauge cluster and door panels. As supportive and sporty as the seats are, I would be perfectly happy with a pair of cloth buckets, what I would be excited about is the short shifter and sporty steering wheel. This was actually the last year for this style of steering wheel, in ’90 they left the air bag equipped factory wheel.
This Saleen doesn’t really need anything other than a good home and to be driven! If I were in the market it for a specialty Fox body, I would want the hatchback, but this convertible would be fun with the top down and they only built 165 of these drop tops.
From Amanda (Jason’s Wife) – So we have had this Saleen since 2012.And mechanically it is perfect.We aren’t gear heads so everything is stock. My husband had the rear end changed out. The mileage is around 51,000. The paint is original and it should be restored for max beauty! And also top needs to be replaced…but that is normal wear and tear. The supercharged engine will keep up with anything stock around. Let me know if you have any questions.
As far as story… my husband bought it from one of his customers… he runs a bread route. A restaurant owner sold it to him because he wanted a ’60s Mustang. And we know that prior to restaurant owner, John, it come out of Florida. John bought it from his cousin. I will miss this car immensely, but we don’t have time to enjoy it… and it needs to be on display and shown off! When we have taken her to drive-ins… she is a show stopper!
