89-0129 SSC
89-0129 SSC

When the 25th anniversary of the Ford Mustang rolled around in 1989, it seems as though their marketing department was the only group interested in capitalizing on the date. There were parties and cross country cruises but no special edition Mustang emerged. Thankfully, Steve Saleen and company weren’t going to let 1989 go by without building something worth talking about. His creation was the brilliant single-purpose 1989 Saleen SSC. It was a road-race ready son-of-a-Mustang that served to remind everyone just what Fox bodies were capable of. With only 161 produced, SSC’s were scarce commodities to begin with. These days, finding a clean example is a daunting prospect. That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to offer SSC #129 – this showroom fresh 2,500-original mile example. All original with no modifications made, this car remains as Saleen intended. If you’re looking for a solid investment sure to put a grin on your face, look no further.

The Fox body Mustang was introduced in 1979 as a replacement for the compact Mustang II. Its sharp edged design was a dramatic departure and offered buyers a much sportier package than the previous body style. By 1989, the now ten-year-old Fox platform had matured and provided a truly solid platform for tuners like Saleen. This one, like all ’89 SSC’s, is painted with an even coat of white that showcases the cars understated lines. With just under 2,600 original miles, this cars pampered life is obvious from across the room. All the original body panels are still in place and remarkably straight. Panel fitment remains factory correct with decent gaps all around.

Saleen cars always have a number of distinct visual cues to set them apart. At the front, a number 129 decal sits under the driver side headlight just above a tasteful Saleen-designed urethane front air dam. As always, a large Saleen decal graces the top of the windshield. At the sides, urethane skirts give the car a lower look while complimenting the yellow and gray SSC-exclusive stripes. All molding is gray in color. Out back, the urethane rear valance completes the body kit and provides a nice visual tie-in for the competition-design rear wing. Overall, the package looks OEM but somehow different, like a GT body kit turned up to 11.

Pop the hood open and you’ll find the legendary multi-port fuel injected 5.0L V8. In stock form, these engines made an advertised 225hp and 300lb. ft. of torque. Though respectably strong in a regular Mustang, taking things to the next level is what Saleen is all about. Up top, a 65mm throttle body feeds air into a modified upper and lower intake manifold that sends fuel to the Saleen-designed high-flow SSC heads. The valve train has been upgraded with 1:7 SVO roller rockers. Polished aluminum valve covers and a special SSC engine plenum plate add some style to the bay. Exhaust gases travel through a Walker Dynomax low-restriction exhaust system on their way out of the two rear tips at the rear of the car. With the Saleen upgrades in place, the 5.0L produced 292hp and 325lb. ft. of torque good for 0-60 times around 5.6 seconds with high 14-second quarter mile runs.

Backing the hot 5.0 is a precision shifting Borg Warner T-5 manual transmission with a heavy duty clutch. That T-5 appropriates power to the Auburn limited-slip differential packed with 3.55:1 gears. The chassis is always a strong point on these Saleen cars and this one is no exception. Saleen-specific Racecraft coil springs absorb bumps with the help of Monroe Formula GP electronic cockpit adjustable 3-position struts and shocks. The chassis is stiffened by strut tower braces and a four-point interior support. When it comes time to slow down, four-wheel SVO-type disc brakes get the job done efficiently. Being a modern car, power steering is naturally present. At the corners specially designed SSC wheels wear a white coating and a General ZP2000 Z-rated tires in sizes 225/50 and 245/50, respectively.It doesn’t take much time inside #129 to realize this is no ordinary Mustang. The first major giveaway is the absence of a backseat and the addition of the four-point chassis brace. It’s a pure race car look and fits the car’s personality well. From the ground up, custom Saleen carpet covers that empty space behind the gray, yellow and white glove leather bucket seats. The seats are firm and supportive as performance-oriented seats should be. The leather treatment extends to the hand-tailored steering wheel, door panels and shift knobs. Instrumentation comes courtesy of Saleen-branded gauges including a tachometer and 200-mph speedometer. Though it may look aftermarket, that’s a SSC-exclusive 120-watt Pioneer CD player with a 16-band equalizer sending power to a limited-edition rear sound enclosure. With its stripped down look and high quality pieces, this is arguable one of the coolest Saleen interiors ever produced.

One of the best parts of Saleen cars is their built-in pedigree. Like all true SSC’s, this one carries its build number on the bumper with corresponding build plaques located on the passenger side of the firewall and on the console in front of the shifter. If you’re unfamiliar with how Saleen operated, it’s worth noting that they numbered their cars based on overall build numbers, not individual models. While Saleen only built 161 SSC’s in 1989, they built 895 cars total. The #129 represent this cars place within those 895. For good measure, all numbers have been verified by Saleen.

Rarity and value generally go hand in hand but the combination sometimes makes for a dull ownership experience. Regardless if you drive it 5 miles or 25,000 miles, this Mustang offers the chance to enjoy a limited-production low-mileage car with the knowledge that it will continue to appreciate in value. No matter how you look at it, that’s a win-win situation. If you’ve dreamed of owning an unmolested SSC, they don’t get much better than this. Don’t miss the opportunity to make #129 a permanent part of your collection!

SALEEN AUTOMOTIVE DELIVERS 730HP POLICE VEHICLE

Saleen Automotive Delivers 730HP Saleen Mustang Police Vehicle

2017 S302 Saleen Mustang - Riverside PD
2017 S302 Saleen Mustang – Riverside PD

CORONA, CA–(Marketwired – May 10, 2017) – Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive, Inc. (OTCQB: SLNN), delivered a Special Edition Saleen Mustang Police Car to the Riverside Police Officers’ Association in Riverside, California, which represents the Riverside Police Department’s frontline Officers, Detectives, and Sergeants. This specially built Saleen Mustang will be used to bring awareness and attention to their fallen officers and promotion and avocation of the Police Officers’ Assistance Fund, which provides financial assistance to officers’ families in Riverside and surrounding communities. It will also be a tool in recruiting new officers, engaging the community, and generating a cohesive camaraderie with Riverside Residents.

The Saleen Mustang boasts the latest in technology starting with a whopping 730HP, powered by a twin-screw supercharger with a unique exhaust. It sports a fully revised suspension for extreme cornering, and wears Saleen big brakes, giving it ultimate stopping. The interior is fitted with Saleen gauges and necessary police equipment with full police lighting built into the cockpit for sports a revised front end, Saleen rear wing, and is equipped with the necessary siren and external speakers. Steve Saleen stated, “This is one of the fastest police vehicles ever built. It is one of the most exciting projects Saleen Automotive has been involved in. If you are attempting to elude the police in the Riverside Department’s jurisdiction, beware; your chances of getting away are quite slim.”

Detective Aurelio Melendrez, who also serves as vice president of the Riverside Police Officers’ Association, said, “We are excited and pleased to receive delivery of this Special Edition Saleen Mustang. It brought incredible smiles to those in the department who were on hand to take delivery. We are honored and thrilled that Saleen Automotive has shown their support of the Riverside Police Officers’ Association/Riverside Police Department in this way.” Melendrez stated that the majority of police officers’ deaths across the country are attributed to automobile accidents; after driving the Saleen Mustang he felt the vehicle was the best accelerating, handling, and stopping (police) vehicle he has ever driven. The technology that led to this vehicle’s extreme performance is something he hoped to see become used in a more widespread format, to improve officer safety and vehicle response. The Riverside PD employs roughly 350 men and women. Drivers of this particular Saleen Mustang have been specially trained to handle the speed, cornering, and overall handling. As with any tools assigned to department employees, only those qualified will handle the car. To date, Steve Saleen has trained a handful of department employees. Melendrez feels Saleen’s continued work building police vehicles and training officers with this exceptional technology would keep officers safe. He is hopeful to continue a collaborative effort between Saleen and Riverside PD.

RIVERSIDE POLICE OFFICERS’ ASSOCIATION TAKES DELIVERY OF SALEEN MUSTANG

By: RIVERSIDE POLICE DEPARTMENT on May 5, 2017
Original Article: FACEBOOK.COM

New Saleen S302 Mustang RPOA Memorial Vehicle

The Riverside Police Officers’ Association Assistance Fund is pleased to announce our recent partnership with several prominent businesses in the Inland Empire. With the help of our partners, we were able to create a memorial vehicle to increase awareness of the Law Enforcement members killed in the line of duty and to celebrate their lives.

Without the right team to bring it together, the concept of the memorial car had previously been little more than a lofty goal and one that would take a significant investment in time and resources.

But then in early 2016, Steve Saleen, owner of Saleen Automotive headquartered in the city of Corona, approached RPOA with the idea of creating a Model S302 Saleen Mustang as the memorial car. Steve started working with his partners in the racing community to move the project from concept to reality. Saleen Automotive personnel donated their time and expertise over the next year to design and outfit a base model 2016 Ford Mustang, which was provided by Fritts Ford of Riverside.

A Riverside based business, West Coast Lights and Sirens, immediately offered to assist with the project. Danny Gonzalez, in cooperation with Federal Lights and Sirens who donated their equipment to the project, installed the equipment and wiring for the car.

The memorial car continues to be a work in progress. It was recently back at Saleen Automotive for the next phase of the project. The goal has always been for the car to be completed for a public unveiling at the 2017 Riverside County Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony on Monday, May 22, 2017.

The memorial car is intended to raise awareness of the risks faced everyday by the men and women who wear the police uniform, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. With awareness comes the financial assistance for those injured or killed in the line of duty.

The Riverside Police Officers’ Association Assistance Fund is a 501(c)3 charity that was created in 2011. It is a separate entity from the RPOA and is governed by a 5-person board of directors. Its goals are to provide financial assistance to law enforcement officers injured or killed on duty, to promote youth programs, and to support the elderly and veterans in the Riverside community.

On Friday, May 5, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., the memorial car will be taken to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Emergency Vehicle Operations Center (EVOC) for testing by Steve Saleen and other professional drivers. All news media are welcome to attend. The EVOC location is at 18901 Institution Road, San Bernardino, CA 92407. Any media inquiries should be directed to rpoamail@sbcglobal.net.
