Up for Auction is my 1988 Saleen Mustang #329 with 58,930 original miles in excellent condition. Scarlet Red with red interior and gold graphics, 1 of 1 documented from Saleen. I am the 4th owner of this car. All original single stage paint and interior in amazing condition. Very rare car; 708 Saleen Mustangs were made in 1988; 549 were hatchback and only 5 Saleen Mustangs were made with a red interior and this is most likely the only one left. Car is mostly stock condition and has all original Saleen parts as delivered from the Saleen factory including original Racecraft suspension, original Strut Tower brace, Hurst 5 Speed shifter, Saleen Leather Shift knob, Momo Veloce Steering wheel, FloFit seats and specially ordered when new with 3:55 gears. Comes with correct pioneer radio and equalizer. Car is very clean, in beautiful show condition and runs excellent.

Engine runs smooth, always had Royal Purple Synthetic oil changes. Pictures of the engine show engine is in stock form but there are a few modifications that were done by the original owner including GT40 Heads, Ford Racing Headers, Ford Mass Air Flow sensor (added to all Mustangs in 1989), aluminum drive shaft, DynoMax mufflers, sub-frame connectors and smog pump delete. The catalytic converters are not on the car but I have them to go with the car. Recently, the car has gone through a full tune-up including new coolant, new Ford Motorsport radiator hoses, Ford Motorsport spark plugs, Ford Motorsport ignition wires, Ford Motorsport oil filter, new rear differential oil, and new rear brake pads. There is also new under hood insulation.

Everything works on this car, there are no problems and no leaks. This car has a clean title and never been hit. Overall, the original paint is smooth and mint condition with only a few minor touch ups on the hood, passenger fender and the A-pillar is showing signs of age with paint discoloration / fading (See picture). The Original Pioneer KEH-6050 Cassette Radio comes with the car but is missing the fast forward button. Overall this car is a true collectible and increasing in value. You will not find another one like this. It is after all documented one of one, grabs a lot of attention and has won awards at local car shows. It comes with the Saleen Owners Packet, Ford Mustang Owners Manual and receipts for recent maintenance over the last few years. Thank you for your interest.

CARLISLE FORD NATIONALS 2018 COVERAGE

We survived Carlisle!!! Held during the first weekend of June in Carlisle Pennsylvania, the Ford Nationals IS the place to be for viewing almost 100 acres of FoMoCo products. 2018 marks our tenth consecutive year hosting Saleen owners during this Pennsylvania landmark event. This year we saw the introduction of Team Saleen as well as an inspired return of both Saleen Automotive and Steve Saleen.

There were an estimated 64 (under 70) Saleen manufactured vehicles on the fairgrounds to proudly display Power In The Hands of a Few to all showgoers. Our collection of Saleen vehicles ranged from the early “four-eyed” 1985-86 editions to the latest trifecta of S302 Black, Yellow and White Labels. With a side dish of those rare vintage XP Explorers and Saleen Foci.

Event support appreciation to Rudy & Betsy Beyer for their effort operating the SOEC tent and appreciation to all participants, enthusiasts and owners that makes this event so exceptional.

MEET STEVE SALEEN OF SALEEN AUTOMOTIVE
Hall of Famer Comes to Carlisle During Ford Weekend

A very popular name within automotive circles is coming to Carlisle courtesy of Saleen Automotive. Steve Saleen was born in California and attended USC, earning a degree in business. He parlayed his education into a booming career that saw him work with the Porsche Owners Club before becoming a competitive racer. In 1980, he entered the Formula Atlantic series and was third in the final series standings. After that, he advanced to the SCCA Trans-Am series in ’82, driving a Ford Mustang. From there, his passion for the Mustang grew immensely, culminating with the founding of Saleen Autosport in 1983 and subsequent building of the first Saleen Mustang.

In 1984, the car was completed, tested and raced against some of the world’s top cars, finishing first in its class at the Mosport 24 hour endurance race. Years later, Saleen formed a race team with comedian Tim Allen and driver Bob Bondurant. The three raced Saleen Mustangs in the SCAA World Challenge. Inducted into the Mustang Hall of Fame in 1996 along side Carroll Shelby, Saleen remains active today, primarily with his namesake company, Saleen Inc.

Since establishing Saleen Automotive, the company has gone on to build countless Mustangs and Ford products. Saleen cars and trucks are seen as one of the top brands in the Ford market. Saleen also had a hand in the 2005-2006 Ford GT cars. Don’t miss out as Steve Saleen meets and greets with enthusiasts and does an autograph signing or two. Steve Saleen will be located in the Saleen Automotive booth located near the stage. Appearance and Autograph times are still to be announced so follow this page and our Carlisle Ford Nationals Facebook page.

COMPANY WEEK: SALEEN AUTOMOTIVE INC.

Amy Boylan continues to build on Steve Saleen’s performance automobile brand using social media and lean manufacturing practices.

Amy Boylan’s path to a leadership role at California’s iconic Saleen Automotive is a road well traveled — mostly by men. But after a stint as president and COO at Shelby American and COO at West Coast Customs, Boylan’s less focused on glass ceilings than she is on stewarding an enduring brand that’s broken the rules of American automotive OEMs by transforming iconic automotive platforms into custom, high-performance machines.

“Steve Saleen has built a legacy and a brand that has lasted more than 34 years,” says Boylan, president and COO at Saleen Automotive since June 2017. “That’s what attracted me to the company. He’s weathered both good and bad times, but the automobiles he’s created remain collectible and beautiful, making the brand timeless.”

Enduring some ups and downs over the years, the car manufacturer has never stopped producing vehicles and aftermarket accessories. “Steve developed a car every single year for 34 years,” says Boylan. The company is most commonly known for its Saleen 302 on the Mustang platform, a high performance version of the Ford Mustang with a redesigned body, drivetrain and interior that delivers higher performance.

“Steve also built the S7, the first American supercar which has its own extensive history winning races,” says Boylan. “The new S1 is his latest design, an affordable supercar that can reach 180 mph. We like to call it – a sports car with a supercar pedigree.” Because of these achievements and capabilities, the company is recognized as an original equipment manufacturer, not a tuner. “We are an OEM,” says Boylan. “We’re like a smaller high-end company like Porsche or Ferrari. We get pre-titled vehicles from dealers but we go through all the required testing that all OEMs do.”

The market has been good lately, and the company continues to grow with its manufacturing roots in California. “Everything is done here in Southern California,” says Boylan. “From the design, engineering, and even getting additional parts from local suppliers.” To improve efficiency, Boylan adopted station building, a technique first developed by Toyota. “When you station-build, you can figure out who is doing things correctly, and who needs more training,” says Boylan. “Teams sign off on a vehicle when it leaves their station and they own that build. Then everything goes under post inspection. If there’s something that goes wrong, and we see it being repeated, we can retrain or re-educate the team. This is important when you’re expanding the lines and taking the company to the next level.”

Boylan points out that Saleen’s way of building vehicles isn’t the same as having a bunch of workers bolting on parts. “Most mechanics and car builders have their own way of doing things. That may not work well here so we retrain,” says Boylan. “Steve is adamant about keeping records and keeping manufacturing consistent. Everything has to be exact.”

The company also works with many vendors who must maintain that same high level of quality on their end. “We tell our vendors what we expect and show them the quality that it has to be,” says Boylan. “Everything must be done well and consistent. We look at every part that comes in and can send parts back to our vendors, so they can make it right. Steve believes, and I agree, that we have to touch everything so that the vehicle looks and sounds like a Saleen.”

Boylan realizes that keeping the brand growing involves embracing social media on many levels. The company has Facebook and Instagram pages, and she personally engages online to speak with vehicle owners. “We have customers who have a 1984 Saleen and we still make parts for those cars,” says Boylan. “We still support and talk to them. It’s important to talk to customers who have kept loyal to the brand.”

Needs: “You can never have enough equipment and people,” says Boylan. “In this area of California, it’s hard to find workers. Where we are now, in Corona, California, it’s a great place for a middle-class lifestyle, but not the best place to find executive level employment. Most people at that level are transplants and that’s sometimes difficult.

Challenges: “Trying to grow at the speed we need,” says Boylan. “We have turned a corner and are trying to keep up with a growing demand. We have created licensing deals with China to build vehicles over there, but all cars for North America will be designed, engineered, and built in the U.S. There are people here building to design stuff overseas. It’s the same for anyone building a car from scratch.”

Opportunities: “Steve has never been pigeonholed into one thing,” says Boylan. “He helped build the Ford GT for Ford, He also helped with the Dodge Viper. He’s brilliant in finding new opportunities. The new Saleen 1 (S1) for example breaks the mold for a $100K carbon fiber sports car that can reach 180 mph.”

SALEEN SPORTRUCK ADDED TO VEHICLE PERFORMANCE LINE

CORONA, CA—January 11, 2018, Saleen Automotive will reveal its latest Saleen-designed performance vehicle, the 2018 Saleen Sportruck, on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, at 11:00 A.M. and live on Facebook (Facebook.com/Saleen/).

Steve Saleen’s extensive history in truck racing includes the most wins in the SCCA Truck Series and well as a national championship. Saleen, no stranger to the truck market, began its heritage with Sportrucks in the 1980s with Ranger pickup trucks, S331 Pickup trucks, and the limited-edition Supercharged Harley Davidson for Ford. Saleen’s level of performance and design makes the new 2018 Sportruck a must-have for the enthusiast.

“This addition to the product lineup demonstrates the Saleen Company’s commitment to its Brand and continued growth in the sport car and truck markets, returning Saleen back to its position of dominance,” stated Saleen Automotive President Amy Boylan. “The return to our heritage with the Saleen Sportruck is a perfect fit for our program. We now have a full line of high-performance vehicles carrying the Saleen Brand,” said Saleen CEO Steve Saleen.

The Sportruck will be offered as a 700 HP V8 Supercharged edition with a full flow Saleen designed exhaust system, and other power options. It will also be offered in RegularCab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew. All design elements hold true to Saleen’s exceptional aerodynamic designs. The Truck will feature Signature Saleen fender vents, a minimum-drag, high-downforce front facia, side skirts, and a unique functional rear facia while still maintaining the utility of the truck. It is also equipped with Saleen Racecraft Suspension with Racecraft specific-rate front coil springs, front performance shocks, specific-rate rear leaf springs, rear performance shocks, and front sway bar and bushings. Equipped with Saleen Alloy 22×10-inch front and rear wheels, the Sportruck will ride on General Tire Grabber 305/40/22 front and rear rubber.

The Performance interior includes Saleen signature two-tone leather sport seats with Saleen embroidered headrests, front and rear floor mats with Saleen embroidery, Saleen Race-inspired pedals, Saleen White Face gauges, Saleen race-inspired center-stripe leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a serialized Saleen plaque.
