Editor Note: Saleen Performance and the Western Region of Budget Car Rental teamed to offer specially equipped S281 convertibles at select locations. These convertibles featured 18″x9″ Speedline magnesium wheels, interior Sport Bars and were assigned unique serialization ending in "B".

For rental duty the original Ford springs were repainted orange and reinstalled. After rental service, red Racecraft springs replaced the Budget springs during reconditioning. Interior serialization plates were not installed for rental duty in fear these would be stolen. Serial plates were shipped from Saleen, to be installed by first owners. A number of units featured damaged magnesium wheels that were replaced before resale.

All Budget rental S281s were based on the Ford Mustang GT convertible, featured Ford leather interiors and door guard protectors. Convertible top colors were offered in black or white. Interior color were either black or grey. It is believed that 96-0002B and 96-0008B are lone Speedsters. 96-0002B is the only rental with optional gears.

Folklore states: Budget and Saleen disagreed in how to resale and distribute these used S281s. Budget sought no involvement leaving Saleen to liquidate these models through various means and channels.
