1988 Saleen Mustang number 689 for sale
Saleen may be making headlines these days for working on the Tesla Model S, but its history and bread-and-butter is all about the Ford Mustang. The rear-wheel-drive Dearborn pony cars singlehandedly put the company on the map in the ’80s. Founder Steve Saleen was already a talented American racing driver when he started the venture, and like many auto industry businesses before him, Saleen went to the track to prove his vehicles’ worth. Now, there’s a chance to buy one of those early racers.
The 1988 Saleen Mustang was upgraded with Monroe shock absorbers, Pioneer sound system, and a Saleen 170 speedo/tach, Saleen body kit, wheels and all signature appointments. All convertible Saleens were converted from LX Mustang models. They all had factory 5.0L V8 engines with optional supercharger, five-speed manual transmission, this car was imported into Australia in 1998 and right hand drive converted for a lady who also had the supercharger removed. It changed hands in 2002 and has been owned by the same owner since and been part of a car collection in Victoria. The original supercharger was sold and fitted to a race car and has had a replacement one fitted.
In 1988 Saleen produced 546 Hatchbacks, 137 Convertibles and 25 Hardtop coupes making this number 689 of a total of 708 cars built.
