|SOLD SOLD SOLD! 1988 Saleen Mustang number 689 for sale
Saleen may be making headlines these days for working on the Tesla Model S, but its history and bread-and-butter is all about the Ford Mustang. The rear-wheel-drive Dearborn pony cars singlehandedly put the company on the map in the ’80s. Founder Steve Saleen was already a talented American racing driver when he started the venture, and like many auto industry businesses before him, Saleen went to the track to prove his vehicles’ worth. Now, there’s a chance to buy one of those early racers.
The 1988 Saleen Mustang was upgraded with Monroe shock absorbers, Pioneer sound system, and a Saleen 170 speedo/tach, Saleen body kit, wheels and all signature appointments. All convertible Saleens were converted from LX Mustang models. They all had factory 5.0L V8 engines with optional supercharger, five-speed manual transmission, this car was imported into Australia in 1998 and right hand drive converted for a lady who also had the supercharger removed. It changed hands in 2002 and has been owned by the same owner since and been part of a car collection in Victoria. The original supercharger was sold and fitted to a race car and has had a replacement one fitted.
In 1988 Saleen produced 546 Hatchbacks, 137 Convertibles and 25 Hardtop coupes making this number 689 of a total of 708 cars built.

VEHICLE INSPECTION: SEVEN82MOTORS and its people make every effort to accurately and fairly describe the vehicle to you and disclose any known information regarding the vehicle. We will never describe a car as “perfect” and buyers should have reasonably expectations of an old car, even restored cars can still have some old parts… We list heaps of detailed photos to help you get a good idea of the car so you can decide if you want to get on a plane and come and inspect it yourself. Unfortunately we have to write this cos we live in a world where a lack of common sense means we are all only allowed to run as fast as our slowest walker… So…SEVEN82MOTORS will not be held responsible for your assumptions. We welcome and recommend an independent inspection of any vehicle prior to purchase if you decide not to view yourself.
WARRANTY: These vehicles are consignment listings and being sold as is, with no warranty, expressed written or implied by the consignee. They are old cars and all vehicles over 10 years or sold on consignment are sold AS-IS. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have thoroughly inspected the vehicle, and to have satisfied himself or herself as to the condition and value and to purchase based upon that judgment solely.
