I’m sending one of the finest low-mileage Fox Body Saleens I have ever owned to Mecum Indy. Fully detailed and sorted by me right here at CCA you’d be hard pressed to find a better example in this white hot Saleen market where rarely does any example show up in any condition. Here are some details:
Offered in unrestored, original condition from the Colin Comer Collection, this 1989 Saleen Mustang is a prime example of the famous Fox-body Saleen. No. 451 of 540 produced in 1989, it is a two-owner car with full history and 59,000 original miles. Powered by Ford’s 5.0L High Output small-block V-8 in combination with a 5-speed manual transmission, the 1989 Saleen was among the most evolved ever sold by the boutique manufacturer.
It was instantly identifiable by its tri-color body-side racing stripes, Saleen Autosport designed front air dam, extended rear spoiler and body-side skirts, Saleen Mustang windshield tint band and decklid emblem, Ford Motorsport quarter window graphics and unique Saleen Autosport/American Racing alloy wheels. Its Racecraft suspension offered serious handling improvements through the use of special chassis bracing, a strut tower brace, special high-rate front and rear springs, Monroe Formula GP front struts, rear shocks and horizontal axle damper, special strut mounting bearings, urethane sway bar bushings and SVO 4-wheel disc brakes.
Saleen also added his touch to the interior trimmings, installing special Saleen Flofit sport seats with extra bolstering and adjustable lumbar supports, matching rear seats and door panels, a leather-covered small-diameter Momo steering wheel, 170 MPH Saleen speedometer and electronic tachometer, a Hurst short-throw shifter with leather-covered knob, special Saleen Mustang dash emblem and a serialized console plaque. No. 0451 also features a Traction-Lok differential, air conditioning, the optional Pioneer KEH 6050 cassette/stereo and graphic equalizer and an Escort radar detector. Presented in stunning black and show detailed No.451 has been maintained to the highest standards since new, is freshly serviced and ready to show its next owner just how great a Fox Body Saleen Mustang can be.
