SALEEN TO BUILD LIMITED EDITION ANNIVERSARY MODEL

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA (June 30, 1993) – Saleen Performance has announced it will build a special limited run of SA-10 Anniversary Edition Saleen Mustangs in celebration of the first 10 years of Saleen production. The 10 cars, all hatchbacks, will be the final Saleen production cars for the ’93 model year and for this 14-year-old body style. Hatchbacks were specifically chosen because they will be dropped from the Mustang lineup with the introduction of the new ’94 models. A number of features will contribute to the special collector’s status of the anniversary edition Saleens including sequential VIN numbers through special arrangement with Ford, and the ability to provide buyers with a degree of customization through purchasing directly from Saleen Performance.

In a tribute to 10 years of production, the SA-10’s will incorporate something old and something new. Proven performance modifications developed over each of the production years will blend with a variety of new items including a new Saleen design lightweight composite hood, bolt-in rollbar, 3 piece 17 inch Saleen wheels, Saleen Panhard rod, Saleen rear shock tower brace and supercharger/ceramic coated header power package. The interior will receive a special black leather package with Saleen stitching, new gray Saleen gauge faces and a CD player. All 10 cars will receive a unique black, yellow and white paint and graphics treatment to commemorate the championship winning Saleen race teams. This year’s World Challenge race team will carry a similar paint scheme including special 10th anniversary graphics.

Saleen, the most successful specialty car maker in the U.S. today, has built over 3,000 vehicles over the past 10 years. Only Carroll Shelby has been more prolific.

In the incredibly popular 5.0 liter Ford performance market only Saleen Mustangs are EPA certified for dealership sales. The Team Saleen Ford dealership network puts a Saleen Mustang within a two-hour drive of practically any location in the U.S.
