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.

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.

Would be a great buy for an enthusiast or collector! (Read entire description before inquiring!)

The vehicle is a 1994 V6 Sport Saleen, 1 of 29 ever made. This car has 60k miles and will be increasing every so often as I drive it occasionally. I purchased the car from the original owner at 39k miles, I’m the second owner.

Car is a v6 with an automatic transmission. This making it less desirable, I’m not looking for Cobra prices. Everything in the car is original from factory aside from the following:

* OEM front struts. (Originals were RaceCraft) replaced approx. 15k miles ago.
* Passenger and driver front sway bar links. Replaced approx. 10k miles ago.
* Battery (Duralast Gold) replaced a few months ago, still has warranty.
* Thermostat replaced approx. 4k miles ago.
* Both fronts, and rear passenger side Brakes and Rotors (of course)
* And other little tune-up parts.

Aside from these everything else is original, I did not add a sound system or aftermarket body parts. NOTHING.

Clean title, no accidents and body parts have matching numbers. Car does not burn any fluids. Has the stock dual exhaust that was put on when built.

There is no rust (only some surface rust on the strut towers) and this is the first winter this car has ever seen. Car is not perfect, there’s some scratches and dings but 90% of the paint on this car is factory paint. Overall condition for a 22 year old car is very good. She could use a good wash/detailing.

The interior is all original the only thing showing wear is the gear shift knob, haven’t taken my steering wheel cover to see if there is any wear on it but, the dash and console has no cracks or fade spots. Cloth seats have no rips or tears, just a small burn hole in the passenger seat. Car’s interior is 100% original!

There are a few things that need replaced that I’m looking to get done:

Rear driver’s side brakes need replaced, I have been having trouble in doing so because of the old McGard wheel locks. My old key broke, I purchased a new one and that one broke as well. I have new Duralast pads and a rotors to go with the vehicle.
The car has slight camber on the front wheels, from what I’ve researched it is due to having an aftermarket setup previously and oem struts with the racecraft springs. May need to purchase a whole new aftermarket suspension setup. I’ve taken it to get a rotation, balancing and alignment and it just popped back out. I have changed the tie rods, ball joints, and sway bar links before going to get the alignment. This was around 50k miles.

There is a slight water pump leak, its not a significant leak, it may just need a new gasket.

The more I fix, the higher the price expectancy. I’ve recently purchased a new car and no longer need this one.


Feel free to email with questions, thanks for looking! Price is obo, no lowballs! I will entertain any trades + cash, mostly looking for cash.
