If you have been searching for the right Saleen S351 at the right price, this is it! If you research price of Saleens I suggest NADA Classic Car Guides. However, one problem with the Saleen Speedsters is that they are “not referenced or priced as such” only convertibles, so look at the original Saleen MSRP and current retail value as a guide. Just remember, the original Saleen MSRP of this Speedster was $54,534, near that of a Saleen S351SR. This is understandable considering its light weight racing additions.

HOT ROD: A SALEEN MUSTANG COLLECTION TO DIE FOR

A Saleen Mustang Collection to Die For
Power in the Hands of… One?

BY: MARYBETH KICZENSKI on OCTOBER 2, 2019
Original Article: HOTROD.COM

We’ll wager a bet that you’ve heard the name Steve Saleen, and we’ll bet the farm that every Mustang enthusiast knows the name, as the builder of the infamous Saleen Mustangs. Coming from a Formula Atlantic open-wheel racing background, Saleen began turning out modified Fox-body Mustangs in the 1980s, from 1984 to 1993. Roughly 2,700 of the Saleen Mustangs were built during the Fox era, and a bunch more from ’94 to today. The Saleens were among the first “tuner” Mustangs on the market, and with their modified (sometimes Vortech-supercharged) engines and suspensions, they were a bright spot in the often dismal mid-1980s performance scene.

Saleen’s tagline, “Power in the hands of a few,” definitely means a bit more to Scott Warren of Highland Park, Illinois. As an avid Mustang enthusiast, the performance capabilities of the Saleen-modified ones always peaked (piqued) his interest. Scott’s first Mustang was a black-over-grey 1987 GT that would go on to both fuel his addiction to black cars, as well as the quest for a real Saleen.

For Scott, what stood out about the Saleen cars was their track record. Saleen took home the driver, team, and manufacturer’s championships in SCCA Escort Endurance series in both 1987 and Saleen’s winning continued in 1988, including a 1-2-3 in the 24 Hours of Mosport in ’88 with a three-Mustang team, a first for Ford since the GT40 tromping of Ferrari at LeMans in 1966.

Saleen Mustangs are special in that every vehicle is serialized, like Shelbys were and still are. This appealed to Scott, as well. Not only does serializing make each car unique, they also come with a story that can be tracked throughout a car’s history. Scott used this to his advantage in searching out cars from limited-production runs, super high-performance offerings, press cars, test mules, or Saleen’s personal cars—that unique serial number and bumper number tells the story. Scott learned that the cars with low bumper/serial numbers tend to be these special builds or in-house company demos; the ones sold to the public typically begin at number 10 but the numbers also don’t always follow in sequence.

After nearly 20 years from his first encounter with a Saleen Mustang, Scott purchased his first one, a black 1987 convertible. While this car started his journey into actual ownership, it would be the special ones mentioned above that he would ultimately end up with.

While the core of his collection consists of Fox Saleens, his many years of driving and collecting them have led him to appreciate all the body styles. Scott is also an active member of The Saleen Club of America which, as he says, has brought together so many people from across the country who share a passion for Saleen automobiles. Even though the Fox Mustang started it all for Saleen, there are highly desirable variants spanning across various generations of Mustangs, many of which he has in his collection. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

1993 SC #02

Saleen released its first Mustang in 1984 and to celebrate its five-year anniversary in 1989, produced the Saleen SSC, a special edition of 161 Mustangs with specially modified engines that made 292 hp. The ’89 SSC was the first Saleen to receive full EPA certification. These cars proved popular so in 1990-1993 the model was referred to as the Saleen SC, (for Super Car). The production was skipped in ’92. This car, of which only 26 were built, was designed to showcase how far the Fox platform could be pushed while retaining a warranty, something that’s critically important to anyone purchasing a new car. The production numbers of this top of the line Saleen SC can be broken down like this:

SALEEN SC PRODUCTION
1990 13
1991 9
1992 0
1993 4
TOTAL: 26

All of them, except one, sported unique interiors. They were fitted with unique wheels and a larger diameter exhaust. Engine-wise, Saleen fitted them with a Saleen-specific intake and other engine parts. Some received adjustable suspension bits, and some later models were Vortech-supercharged. In 1990, the SC cars were rated at 315 hp, which was a lot of power for the early ’90s. Saleen offered the package for 1992, but there were no takers. For 1993, four cars were ordered. Of these cars, one was a convertible. What makes this batch special is that they came with a 450hp rating. These cars were identical in performance to the SA-10 models except for paint scheme and interior seat stitching. The ’93 SC cars even had the carbon hood originally offered on the SA-10. Scott’s ’93-’02 SC is the lone hatchback produced with this 450hp combination. What does this equate to in performance numbers? Off the showroom floor the car would bolt 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and cover the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds. Again, for the early ’90s that was fast!

Scott’s 1993 #02SC originally stickered for $39,990 and was used as a daily driver during the first part of its life, where it was traded between collectors. Later it spent several years on display at Performance Autosport in Richmond, VA. Scott was adamant about telling his friend there how much he loved that particular car and this communication proved beneficial when the car came up for sale a few years back. Scott was able to scoop it up with 54,000 original miles.

1993 SA10 #01

The Fox-body Mustang came to an end in 1993 which coincidently was also Saleen’s 10th year of production. To celebrate, the company decided to offer the SA10 model. In order to purchase one of these special edition cars, you had to be a member of the Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Club. What makes the SA10 models special was that these were the first cars to use sequential serial numbers from Ford. All 10 of the black LX hatchbacks came off the line in order and were shipped to Saleen for the conversion. Exterior wise, the black cars were marked with yellow and white accent decals, a carbon fiber hood, and flat-lipped Stern wheels. Scott notes that these wheels are often copied, and stresses that only 10 or 11 Saleens ever came with them. Interior wise, all but one car received Recaro leather seating. From this point, the customer could pick and choose his/her vehicle’s options from the Saleen Performance Parts catalogue and as such, no two cars are exactly the same. The SA10’s base car, a supercharged Saleen but not an SC, came with 325 hp. Obviously, based on which additional performance goodies were ordered, the car could leave with 450 hp. Less than 10 Fox-body Saleen Mustangs with 450 hp were ever produced—four were the Saleen SC flavor, and the remainder were the SA10 cars.

SA10 #01 was originally built for John McCauley, President of the Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Club. Like all original purchasers of these special cars, John met with Saleen to discuss the additional details of the build. John enjoyed racing so he wanted this to be a race car. While some collectors would frown upon this decision, others would applaud it—after all, these cars were born from a racing heritage. SA10 #01’s performance story began with a balanced and blueprinted engine fitted with ported cylinder heads. This is the only SA10 with a Saleen-specific intake for more horsepower. From there, a Tremec five-speed and a 3.55 gear with an Auburn differential transferred that horsepower to the ground via heavy duty racing springs and shocks at all four corners. Interior wise, John had the rear seat deleted, and a four-point roll cage installed. A custom Pioneer stereo with a 10-disc changer rounded out the build because, you know, street car! Because of the racing intent for this particular SA10, it would become the most-optioned build, and was built by Joe Gosinski and his team at Saleen. Joe, for those not up to speed on Saleen history, was the man behind the infamous 1994-1999 S-351R but met a tragic end a few years ago—more on that later.

Being the first prototype build, SA10 #01 has a few other details that make it different from the reminder of the SA10s. The graphics are slightly different and the wheels have unique polished center caps. The car also spent time on the show circuit, including being Vortech’s booth car at SEMA. What was the original cost for this special Saleen? MSRP was over $50,000 for this race-ready Fox. Gosinsky would later open Chicane Motorsports in California, A subsequent owner of #01 took the car to Joe’s shop where he refreshed the entire drivetrain and brought the car back to collector-original quality. Scott eventually purchased the car from Mark LaMaskin who owns Performance Autosport in Richmond VA (and helped us with some technical information on this story). The car had been in the Roger Rodas’ collection. Roger was a good friend and client of Mark’s, after Roger’s death Mark helped the family place all of his collectable Mustangs. The SA10s, due to their storied history and performance prowess, firmly place them as one of the most sought-after Fox-body Mustangs. Of the 10 offered, only nine were ultimately built due to a customer backing out on the deal. This car is one of Scott’s most prized possessions, the other being the aforementioned legendary S-351.

The Non-Saleen: 1993 SAAC MKII #01 Convertible

Scott may be a die-hard Saleen owner but that doesn’t limit him from appreciating special cars built by other notable builders. Carroll Shelby, as everyone knows, made history with some of the most incredible Mustangs ever to grace the planet. The SAAC MKI and MK2 cars of the early 1990s have an interesting history due to the fact Shelby was under contract with Chrysler at the time, building the crazy pocket rockets for Dodge. This project was a secret between a few Ford engineers and Shelby, so secret that the first few cars were built in the garage of one of the original people involved in the program. Production was eventually moved to Watson Engineering in MI. Scott’s car was the last one built, and it was assembled at Kar Kraft (home of the Boss 429 Mustangs). The goal was to create a modern day G.T. 350 and they almost pulled it off, but right around the launch of the MK1, Chrysler issued a cease and desist order against Shelby. The cars were quickly rebranded as SAAC (Shelby American Automobile Club) instead of Shelby. Production-wise, 37 white-with-blue-stripes MK1 cars were built. MK2s saw a mix of hatchbacks and convertibles and the colors were expanded to include red and black. Out of the approximate 21 cars made, 12 were convertibles.

The MK cars came with nearly 300 naturally-aspirated horsepower with the GT40 package that consisted of different heads, larger throttle body, and a tubular GT40 intake. The brakes were upgraded to four-wheel discs and three-piece Simmons wheels finished the look. In order to assist with brake cooling, the fog lights were removed in favor of air ducts. Interestingly enough, some believe that without this secret project the 1993 Cobra would have never happened. Ford sold some back-room parts to get the cars built and also used it as the test bed for EPA certification. Also note the lack of fake air scoops that the GT body had.

Scott’s ownership of this car came through an eBay auction—goes to show that sometimes you really can find awesome things on the site. Sitting at around 10,000 original miles, this drop-top Fox is a wonderful example of this complicated three-way relationship that left a sour taste in one manufacturer’s mouth.

1997 S351 #026R

The “R” designation on any Saleen means something special. The S351 series was built from 1994 until 1999, and these legendary cars were the first ones in which Saleen changed out the entire driveline. There were less than 300 produced throughout the entire production run. Some of these cars started out as basic V6s while others were V8s and after Saleen’s swap, power output ranged from 371 hp on the naturally aspirated models to the 505hp fire-breathing supercharged variants. Again, this is the mid- to late-’90s so that kind of power for a car with a warranty was incredible at the time.

Scott acquired S351 #026R after the untimely murder of Chicane Motorsports owner Joe Gosinski in 2010. The car found its way to Joe’s shop with intentions of being turned into a track car. The customer ran out of money, so Joe acquired it as a personal project. A Maximum Motorsports suspension and Global West subframe connectors were installed just prior to Joe’s untimely passing, so when Scott took possession his job was to reassemble and install the original drivetrain and Tremec six-speed. Currently sitting at 15,000 miles, this was one of four cars built with every available option. Those options were the 10-inch rear wheels, 3.55 rear end, two-point chassis brace, and the Recaro leather interior. All S351s received Alcon brakes as a standard feature in 1997. S351 #026R is Scott’s favorite car to drive on the street. He said that the combination of the chassis and suspension work with the sheer power from the supercharged engine make it an absolute beast. Because of his connection with Joe, this car holds a special place in his heart and he never plans on selling it.

1997 S281 Cobra #173

The Supercharged Extreme Rainbow Cobra Speedster Saleen is a mouthful to describe. It is one of 182 cars built on the Cobra chassis and the only convertible ever painted this color—less than 20 Saleens in total were painted this color. Often confused with Ford’s Mystic, this is a completely different color as BASF was a partner of the Saleen/Allen racing team and manufactured the paint for them.

The story of S281C #173 began as a custom build for a customer in Colorado. He insisted on a white top, and the only way to get one was to order a red car, so this car started life as a red cobra convertible. Why is this significant if the car needs to be repainted? Well, Saleen preferred black cars because then they didn’t have to paint the engine bay. A bill for an additional $4,000 for labor was added to the customer’s build in order to remove the drivetrain to paint the engine bay. With an original sticker price of $58,287 and the additional labor costs, plus $4,286 for the supercharger install, this car topped out at $66,573! The original owner supplied a disposable camera to document the build and some photos are said to show the test-fitting of the Vortech supercharger at Saleen’s production facility but Saleen records show that the car was shipped off to a dealer for the supercharger install.

This was another eBay score for Scott. He came across the auction 12 years ago and immediately called the seller to end it. This was his second Saleen and the one he has owned the longest. As it sits today, the car only has about 4,000 miles on it. With the eye-catching paint and unique build details, the car remains one of the most recognizable Saleens out there.

2011 Black Label #01

With all these rare and special Saleen vehicles, what does Scott drive daily? Why a Saleen, of course! True to his collector roots, this also isn’t just “any old Saleen.” The 2011 Black Label (2011-01BL) that serves daily duty started out as a car for Liz and Steve Saleen to use as a commuter for work. At some point, the car was then used as a test mule for what was going to be “George Follmer” editions. A modified engine in addition to suspension tweaks were installed and tested at the track. The car was then shipped to Charlotte to celebrate the Mustang’s 50th anniversary where Steve Saleen gave test rides in the car on the track. Then in 2014, the Black Label body kit was installed and the car was shipped to China as a marketing tool to help launch the brand there. When the Mustang switched body styles in 2015, Saleen sold it to Scott with 26,000 miles on it. Modern Saleens use a “label” to designate the trim levels: White Labels are base models, Black Label is the top trim, and Yellow Label is a White Label with a supercharger. As a true daily driver, Scott has driven this car to over a dozen states and has taken it to two different Saleen Nationals plus Ponies in the Smokies.

There we have it! A somewhat brief history into Saleen as told through the stories of one dedicated owner and his collection of rare and unique Mustangs!

Factoid

In 1985, Steve Saleen’s secretary miscounted the vehicles produced that year, omitting vehicle number 6. Since 1985, Saleen has had the tradition of not issuing the #6 bumper number on any of its vehicles. And now you know.

Everything works; A/C, cruise control, wipers, washer, power windows, power door locks, radio and CD player, power trunk release, etc. …. Vehicle comes with three factory Ford keys as well as two remote key fobs ….. Just get in, fire up that 371 hp 351, put it in gear and go!

The vehicle turns heads wherever it goes and it always takes me just a little bit longer to leave the gas station due to curious on lookers wanting to talk about the car….

Vehicle has been owned by adult Saleen enthusiast owners and they can all be traced back to the original owner. The vehicle is well known in the Saleen community, as are the owners (as I mentioned)…..I will include all parts that were replaced due to age as well as parts that were replaced due to upgrades that I think make the car stand out, e.g. Cobra style head lights, which change the front look of the vehicle …. I will also include a myriad of receipts of the work that has been performed by me and previous owners.

Also included in the sale are parts that are brand new and have never been installed…..I will also include trophies that the vehicle has won at various area car shows…..Vehicle has been signed by Steve Saleen in the engine compartment as well as on the dash, along with the company trademark line “Power in the hands of a few” that can be found on the Monroney as well…..In addition, the vehicle has been signed by Steve Saleen’s long time in house vehicle designer, Phil Frank.

Vehicle is equipped with and comes with the following:

1) 351 cubic inch, 371 bhp (5.8L) naturally aspirated V8 engine.
2) Tremec 3550 5-speed transmission with Pro-5.0 short-throw shifter.

95-0075 Saleen S351
95-0075 Saleen S351

There are a couple of windshield chips, I took a picture of the one that has a “star”….. There are a couple of small rock chips here and there but they don’t photograph well as they have been touched up with correct Ford E8 paint ….. The car is in fantastic shape for a 24 year old vehicle and that is a testament to the owners, (including myself), that have all taken excellent care of this rare beast.

The only reason for selling is that I am trying to purchase a different year Saleen and need to sell this one to make room, that’s it …. If I could keep it, I would.

Stand out at your next car show or cruise in ….. I would venture to say that there will most likely not be very many Saleen’s and much less a 1995 S351 in this condition!

Please ask any and all questions prior to bidding….The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to cancel the auction early if car sells locally.

For serious buyers, I have many more pictures that I can’t upload here. Please get in touch with me and I will send you a link to the host website. In addition, I also have a video that I can send you the link to.

Mileage is approx. as it may change due to showing vehicle at a few car shows and cruise in’s coming up in the next few weeks.

Thank you for looking and good luck…

Up for sale is a very clean and low mile 1998 Saleen S351 Convertible. Yes it’s a real Saleen! 1 of 1 car as you can see in the letter of authenticity I bought from Saleen. Super low miles as you can see.

The car runs and drives perfect. I just had the engine and trans pulled and had it completely resealed. It had some oil leaks when I acquired the car. Convertible top is in great condition, and the motor for the top works great. The car has been under a car cover in a temperature controlled garage for the last two years and driven a couple times a month to keep all the fluids moving.

98-0016S S351 Speedster
98-0016S S351 Speedster

Recaro cloth seats on the interior. I purchased a complete decal kit from Saleen when I got the car so all the decals are brand new. OK! so what isn’t perfect. The Speedster cover was not with the car when I acquired the car. Nor the roll bar. Last thing is the rear wing. Its not the S351 wing that is commonly seen on these cars. I called Saleen and spoke with Molly Saleen for about an hour and a half. She verified that the spoiler that is on the car is the one the customer ordered when she personalized the car. Original owner was named Beatrice. If any of you have a Saleen Registry you will be able to find this information.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. Title in hand. Don’t waste your time or mine with low ball offers. I will entertain any reasonable offers. No trades. Just looking to sell the car. Thank you for taking the time to check out the car. Happy Bidding!

RARE YELLOW S351 SPEEDSTER (98-0022S) APPEARS

The powerful and exotic S351 Mustangs offered during the 1990s were a serialized series of unique and complex vehicles by Saleen Performance. These Saleen Mustangs were twice (or three times) as powerful as their Ford produced counterparts of the same era.

For the 1998 model year Saleen produced 205 street Mustangs; 183 were S281 models while 22 were S351 editions. Of those 22, 12 were produced on the convertible body style. Of those 12, 10 were optioned with the Speedster package with 6 having the Leather Saleen Seating equipment. In addition to those statistics, 98-0022 was the lone Chrome Yellow S351 produced for 1998.

If we look at the production run for yellow exterior paint from 1994-98 on the SN95-styled S351, we see Saleen Performance produced 14 units of 351 powered Mustangs in this color. -DB

Overview:
Here is an absolutely stunning 1995 Mustang Saleen S351 R Code Supercharged Coupe in basically brand new condition inside and out. This car is completely all original and untouched with only 1,600 original miles on it. It is one of the finest, untouched, original ’95 S351s on the planet. It has been in the hands of only two collectors since new, where it was always bought to be a future collectors item. The car was put in the garage under a car cover, driven sparingly, never modified or hot rodded in any way. It even has floor mats over the factory Saleen floor mats to protect them. This is number 121 of only 126 Saleens built in 1995 which makes it ultra rare. I was told this was the last S351 Coupe built and one of only a few Laser red ones built, but you would have to verify that. The ’95 S351 was one of the most desired, talked about and most sought after Mustang Saleens ever built. This was the original beast that put Saleen on the map. This is a high desirable collectors item that will only rise in value, kept in this stunning condition. As most have been driven, wrecked or modified, this is one of the last true virgins in existence. The S351 came both naturally aspirated and supercharged and this is the factory supercharged one bumping the horsepower from 371hp to an astonishing 480hp. This car was one of the fastest production cars of the 1990’s even topping the viper in 1995. Motor trend called this car the thundering, plundering, viper-eating monstrosity!

This Saleen has most all its original paperwork, which includes its original window sticker, Saleen aftermarket docs and owners manuals. It has perfect, clean Carfax showing its flawless history. It was completely checked out and serviced from front to back. It is a completely all original car, even sitting on its original tires. This is a must have for any Mustang, Ford, Saleen or general car collector. This car is better then money in the bank and is a pleasure to look at in the garage. Don’t wait on this one, as it will not last long at all!!

Exterior:
This Saleen shows like a brand new car siting on the showroom floor and is absolutely stunning. It does not have, one flaw on it. The paint shines like new and car has always been garage kept, under a car cover. The original wheels are flawless and it is sitting on its original tires. You will not find a nicer one!!

Interior:
The stunning all original black cloth Recaro seat interior is perfect. It still smells like a new car inside. The original Saleen floor mats are even covered by another set of floor mats.

FIRST YEAR S351 (94-0014) OFFERED FOR SALE

The wild and crazy Saleen S351 Mustang. With all of the press and excitement during the 1994 model year that surrounded this new model from Saleen Performance, few realized the 351 powered SN-95 Mustang from Saleen was a slow start to reality.

For the 1994 model year Saleen produced 46 S351 Mustangs; 44 were “normal” S351 models while 2 were SR editions. Of the 44 non-SR models, 32 were produced on the coupe body style. Of those 32, 9 were painted in Black exterior paint. If we examine those 9 vehicles, 7 featured Black interior plastics from Ford. Of those 7, 5 were not equipped with the optional supercharger package. Of those 5 vehicles, 4 had the standard cloth Saleen/Recaro seating. Of these 4, 1 had the optional Saleen 2-Point Roll Bar. 94-0014 is that car.

If we view 1994 S351 production in detail, it appears 94-0014 was the first Black painted coupe produced by Saleen Performance; two Black convertibles were produced before 94-0014. It also appears 94-0014 may have been the eighth 1994 serialized production car produced by Saleen Performance.

While viewing 94-0014 in its current state, we notice the front bumper cover serial number decals are an incorrect typeface and the silver side chevrons are not the “reverse fade” version commonly seen on 1994-95 Saleen Mustangs. We suspect previous paintwork. One cool early production element are the pre-machine gun exhaust pipes with Fox-era Saleen SC tail extensions. -DB

96-0032S S351 Speedster
96-0032S S351 Speedster

Since the 1980s, Steve Saleen has been THE source for Mustang owners wanting to get the most out of their pony cars. Saleen’s successful racing programs in SCCA and IMSA road racing filtered down into his road cars. Saleen Mustangs are sought after for their handling prowess, increased horsepower and distinctive good looks. Quite often, Saleen cars that appear on the market are made up from aftermarket components and aren’t genuine factory built examples. We are offering this genuine, fully documented, factory-built 1996 S351 Speedster with just over 9,000 miles from new.

According to the Saleen Registry, this car, number 96-0032, is one of just 10 S351 Speedsters built in 1996 and one of 3 finished in Rio Red and is one of one with these exact options and colors. It was originally built for the CEO of a company that sponsored Saleen’s racing efforts in the 1990s and it was a fully-loaded show piece. Equipment includes the base S-351 package, T-Code (Recaro Interior, Alcon Brakes), 3.55:1 Gears, Saleen Sound System, Speedster Package and a Wheel/Tire upgrade.

In addition to those options, an additional $3,700 in 1997 Prototype additions were fitted. This included a six-speed gearbox, Auburn limited slip differential, Koni suspension, Racecraft rear lower control arms, aluminum front bushings, and Pro short throw shifter. The combined packages and options totaled $36,249 – and that doesn’t include the cost of the base Mustang!

The clean Carfax report verifies just two owners from new, the original owner keeping the car for fourteen years, while the second owner kept the car stored in a climate controlled garage during his tenure. The car presents in very good overall condition showing no signs of crash damage or repairs. The Rio Red paint is in very good order, with a few stone chips apparent, mainly on the front bumper, but overall it presents well excellent gloss. Panel fit is good and the special Saleen graphics are in similarly good condition. The polished wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza tires and are in excellent condition.

Inside, the Recaro seats are embroidered with Saleen logos and trimmed in leather. The leather is in good condition, with some slight wear showing on the driver’s outer bolster. The rest of the interior trim is excellent and all electrical functions work as they should. The original Saleen audio system has been upgraded to a Kenwood Excelon series receiver and Memphis Audio amplifier. The original radio is included. The original power soft top has a heated glass window and is in excellent order, operating smoothly.

On the road, the Saleen shines. The Koni suspension is aggressive but not harsh and the bespoke Saleen Racecraft suspension parts work to make this car handle exceptionally well. Grip is phenomenal thanks to the Auburn limited slip. The six speed transmission takes a firm hand and the shifts are positive, with well-spaced ratios. With just over 9,000 miles from new the car feels tight and fresh. This factory-built Saleen S351 has all the makings of a future classic – rarity, great looks and outstanding performance.

Sale includes fitted cover, original books, Saleen invoices, Speedster tonneau, soft tonneau, cockpit cover, original radio, two original keys and fobs.
