2014 Guardian Glass SA-30


On display at the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration in Charlotte, NC

WORTHINGTON, OH – April 17 – Ford Motor Company’s iconic pony car, the Mustang, turns 50 this year and is being celebrated in style this week in Charlotte, NC. Visitors to the Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration will be delighted by roaring exhaust notes, high octane fumes, immaculate paint jobs, classic pony cars and modern renditions of a venerable classic.

One of the best executed modern versions on display at the Mustang celebration is the creation of another icon, Steve Saleen and the team at Saleen Automotive. The Saleen Mustang offers performance, suspension, trim and styling cues that stand out in a crowd and provides an excellent platform for additional personalization and customization. Saleen’s new Mustang also offers an option never seen before on a Mustang: a panoramic, switchable, glass roof.

The breathtaking roof utilizes Guardian Reveal switchable glass technology, which enables glass to go from clear to opaque with the flip of a switch. This option – dubbed Saleen Frost-Touch Glass – gives Saleen Mustang owners the best of both worlds: a 360-degree birds-eye view from the cockpit as well as protection from the heat and glare, as desired.

“We are always looking for game-changing technologies that will help set our vehicles apart from the pack,” says Steve Saleen, CEO, Saleen Automotive. “In working with the Custom Glass Solutions team at Guardian, we are getting to see firsthand the value and impact glass can have on a vehicle. We know our customers will agree; our panoramic, switchable, glass roof is a thing of beauty and a true differentiator.”

The Reveal Glass equipped Saleen Mustang made its way from California to take part in the anniversary activities in Charlotte. In true Mustang fashion, it was accompanied by a pack of more than 300 other Mustangs making the eastward trek.

“We are proud to introduce our Reveal switchable glass technology to the automotive world with a respected and reputable brand like Saleen,” says Todd Baum, sales director for Custom Glass Solutions. “The Saleen name stands for quality to automotive enthusiasts, much the way Guardian is synonymous with high-quality glass. As both professionals and enthusiasts, we are proud to produce advanced technology like this in the U.S. for a vehicle that is an American Icon.”

The Mustang 50th Birthday Celebration takes place April 16 – 20 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and visitors can see the new Saleen Mustang with the dynamic, switchable glass roof at the Saleen stand in the center of the paddock.
