1989 Ford Mustang LX SaleenThis is an authentic Saleen Mustang, serial number 489 that can be verified through Saleen Club of America. Saleen whale tail rear spoiler, front air dam, side skirts, and rear valance; Saleen graphics. No rust whatsoever. The front seats are aftermarket racing seats. This is a modified Saleen Mustang that's built as a show and go street/strip vehicle. Less than 1500 miles on new drivetrain. Never raced or been down the drag strip. I have owned the car for four years and made numerous modifications to enhance the car's performance capabilities. The car is currently titled and registered in Illinois. The vehicle was involved in a minor accident in 2010 with mostly sheet metal damage that did not compromise the safety or drivability of the car. As far as I can tell the only paintwork is the passenger door and the hood of coarse because its aftermarket. I have numerous pictures from every angle above and below the car to attest for its straightness and soundness. One test drive and you will be convinced there are no issues with the car. It goes down the road as straight as an arrow and the suspension is tight. However, since it was an older vehicle the insurance company totaled the vehicle after the accident. I purchased the vehicle and had a licensed Illinois rebuilder repair the damage and bring the car through a stringent state of Illinois process to ensure the legality, drivability, and safety of the vehicle prior to registering in Illinois. Since I took the car through the process already and it is currently registered in Illinois, there will not be any issues in registering the vehicle. This car is a real eye catcher, I have owned several Fox body mustangs and seen hundreds at car shows and on the streets and this is by far one of the nicest examples you will find. It is not a brand new car, has a few scrapes here and there, but overall a very stunning example that you can be as proud of as I am and I like very nice things so I am not easily impressed. I added keyless entry and a very nice stereo system with component speakers front and rear and a top of the line JL Sub with box and 2 nice amps hidden under the rear seat delete, sounds amazing and with backup camera, all that was $2500. The car has a big cam and big stall convertor with a manual valve body, so it takes a few moments to warm up and settle into idle and you might have to foot brake it when its cold to keep from killing it with the big converter, but once it has settle into idle it is almost as easy to drive as a modern car. It runs cool, handles great and you can cruise in the summer with the Air conditioning blowing cold, not many fast sports cars can manage that.Just had it on the Dyno and it put out 368 Rear wheel Horsepower. I have a new 2015 Mustang Gt with the Coyote 5.0, exhaust, intake and tune and I can assure you that from a start, roll, any situation this fox body will pull away from the higher horsepower new mustang. This car is set up so good that it hits and hooks so tight that the car is much faster than cars with much morepower, but this car is very light weight. I have many more pictures of the undercarriage, engine, interior etc and a few videos posted below. There is nothing to hide on this car and I want the interested purchasers to feel comfortable with the product.
