1989 Ford Mustang Saleen – Though Ford itself didn’t do a 25th-birthday Mustang, Steve Saleen did, introducing his SSC on April 17, 1989. Based in California, Saleen was a veteran SCCA Trans-Am and Formula Atlantic racer. He also had a business-school degree — and several Shelby Mustangs. Encouraged by the H.O. V-8’s 1982 revival, he decided to follow in Shelby’s footsteps and make stock Mustangs into personal high-performance cars. For the first five years he focused on everything but the powertrain to avoid costs involved with emissions certification for a tuned engine.
Very much in line with what Saleen had in mind when he modified early Mustangs, this Saleen tribute was built to impress both cosmetically and mechanically. Just one glance and you know right away this is no normal Mustang convertible. A quick turn of the key and the exhaust notes will convince you this is a true American sports car. The odometer shows 106k miles but the build has only seen roughly 5,500 miles since completion. A complete list of features and options include; 5.0L V8, e303 Cam, GT40x Aluminum Heads, 1.6 Scorpion Roller Rockers, Ford Racing Lifters, Trickflow Track Head Upeer & Lower Intake, Vortech V3 Supercharger, BBK Longtube Headers, H-pipe, Flowmasters, BBK Throttle Body, BBK Maf Sensor, Wire Tuck SVE Aluminum Radiator, 5 Speed, Ford Racing Clutch, A/C, Front Airbags, ABS Brakes, Center Console Storage, Cruise Control, Power Top, Power Windows/Locks/Mirrors, Roll Bar, Upgraded Interior (94-98), SN95 Dash/Door Panels, Steering Column/Steering Rack, New Carpet, Cloth “5.0” Floormats, Boss AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth/Aux, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Black Cloth Top, 5 Lug Conversion, Cobra Calipers, Eibach Sport Pro Springs, 18″ Rovos Wheels (F =18×9, R=18×10.5), New Continental ZR Tires! The heater core, oil pump, timing chain, gaskets, and seals were all replaced in the build. We can assure you that you will not find another Mustang like this for under $16k and you definitely can’t build its twin for this amount. Drop top season is here! Contact us today to become an owner.
