Car is 100% the was this car came from the factory. Motor leaks a little oil. Please ask any questions before you bid. It had been hit in the rear and fixed. Could use some detail inside to make perfect again. Hit a dog in 2015 and properly fixed, not bad at all.

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.

ebay_2016_88-0689_005

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.

88-0294 Saleen Mustang
88-0294 Saleen Mustang

Up for sale is a 1988 real SALEEN convertible mustang. I recently bought this for my wife however she would prefer an automatic. So my loss is your gain. This is a real Saleen with all of the Saleen components present with the exception of the original radio. This is a rust free car, not a rattle box either, with all the original body panels with all the tags. Clear carfax history as well.

Starting off with the body:
The body like I mentioned is in great shape and has good bones. At some point I would think this collectible should have a fresh paint job, as there are spots that are showing its age. The lower spoilers could use a fresh dose of 3M double stick tape, the worst part of the car would be the trunk lid, as the body work from Saleen (being that its 30 years old) is showing its age and the paint is lifting.

88-0294 Saleen Mustang
88-0294 Saleen Mustang

Interior:
I would rate the interior a strong 8 out of 10 all the Saleen correct material is there and the most important seats are there. the interior is all original. Momo steering wheel, correct shift knob, door panels, cluster, and floor mats.I would say the interior could use a stream cleaning to make it fresh. I haven’t had a chance to do so.

88-0294 Saleen Mustang
88-0294 Saleen Mustang

Drivetrain:
Probably the most impressive part of the car, car drives straight and true and really has non of the typical convertible rattles associated with them. The tires i would say are 75%. Recently the entire brake system was overhauled with a tune up, New gas tank, fuel pump,and sending unit. Brand new clutch as well. Like i mentioned the car drives great.

I would to make this car a complete show stopper would be refinish the wheels and make them brand new.

These cars are beginning to gain value everyday since they are 30 years old. The collector car market is seeing a spike in fox bodies and more importantly the Saleen mustangs.

I believe its priced right and correct description about the car is given.

I do reserve the right to end the auction early. and i can be reach at 516-225-2735 for any further questions you might have. Can be seen locally if needed. Trades might be considered.

Car is 100% stock down to the air silencer in the fender.
