1985 Ford Mustang Saleen

Hi,I am selling my 85 Saleen #65. Sentimentally I do not want to, even a little bit. But financially Ive got to give it a shot. Id like to buy a home soon. This is a real 85 saleen that I bought out of Arizona. It is a fabulous car. Extremely fun to drive. Ive always loved the authenticity of the saleens. Especially the foxes. The car spent most of its life in AZ and on the west coast. Its extremely extremely RUST FREE. I can swear to you I have yet to find any on this car. It is a factory grey color, but has been repainted once. It is one of 139 saleens in 85 and is one of five in this color.

The car runs strong. Extremely strong. Literally I kid you not when I say that this car has power EVERYWHERE. It has just as much low end as it does high end. Its a 331 stroker, MSD 6ALedelbrock performer heads, h beam rods, Vic Jr intake, and holley carb. The thing does not miss a beat. Hands down the best running carbuerated car that ive ever owned. Its got a World class t5 trans with a bbk short throw. Aluminum driveshaft, and 8.8 with 373s and posi. It will roast the tires at will. While rolling or at a stop. Honestly I can not even tell you how impressed I am with that little 331. Like I said the car is rust free. Like not even a spec. Also, I am selling the car with 2 sets of wheels. The factory set which are the black ones, and a set of 15in rikens. The rikens would have come on a ASC McLaren Capri. Both sets are in great shape. The car has subframe connectors, kyb shocks and struts, etc. The body is fairly straight. Minus a few dents and scratches that it has required over the years. But everything is there, all the ground effects and everything. The interior is also in fair condition, sporting its 20 some years of use. The only thing on the interior that is not correct is the steering wheel. Somewhere along the line someone changed it to a later model saleen whee. BUT the factory center cap still remains on this steering wheel. The Speedometer and tach are not in working order. Partially because of the MSD. The Clutch is perfect, doesn't miss a beat. Headlights, taillights everything with a light bulb works. Even the information center in the center console. The shift knob is factory but is missing the button that has the shift pattern on it. Rear defrost still works. And as you may see this was also a factory AC car, but was removed long ago. Has an electric fan that turns on automatically with Temp. The tires are in fair condition with life left in them no doubt. Basically all in all, this is a great car. Take it out, enjoy it, without having to worry about it. My plans were to slowly restore it. But life happens. Thanks for looking and I know im missing things I just said what I could think of off the top of my head. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you 6055531527
