We were at the Pier Mustang Show last weekend and this car was there:

Apparently, it's the most expensive Mustang sold. He claims he paid over 100K after tax and such.

We've got more pictures from the show at:

There was actually two Saleen Mustangs at this show. This was only one of them. The other was just as nice, but not convertable, and not as expensive.

Would have loved either, but the convertable is a nice touch.

The Pier show was great. I don't remember seeing the Saleens. Where were they parked?:?:

I can't believe that anyone would pay that much for a Saleen except for the S7. You have a Mustang body with some bolt-ons. I guarantee you that for under $50,000, you can build a Mustang into a car that will compete with any Saleen out there.
Pictured below is one of (2) two '95 S351 Saleens. This car sold for $65,000.00 new. My friend sold the car in '99 for $32,000.00, with less than 5000 miles on it. My Cobra sold new in '95 for $24,000.00 and still has a book value of $17,000.00 for stock condition.
I just can't see spending that kind of money on a car that is sitll a basic Mustang.

This Saleen was on the back of the Pier.

I have pictures of every car at the pier at:

Also, that intake manifold is the stock that comes with it.

Apparently (the guy claims), that is all original parts from Ford. He hasn't modded it at all. He bought it that way.

I would never pay that much for that car either. It was nice, but not $90,000+ nice. I'd rather look at another type of exotic or something.

O well. :)

I've got the high-res photo of the engine (and intake), if you'd like it, email me.

I'm looking at it now and I don't think it's an edelbrock. Unless, they made it and then sold the design to Ford. There is no name on it.

Let me know if anbody would like the high-res.

It's a SALEEN intake. It sits atop the 351W toped with aluminum heads sporting 495 hp & 500 + ftlb of torque. Mag rating anyway. I'm sure the HP & TQ numbers were just a little higher.

Side note: The only SALEEN I've seen over the $100,000 mark was the SR Widebody. They had the same engine but a completely different suspension (IRS) back in 95. They are VERY RARE.

Do you know if it was built by Ford? This guy claimed and he showed a certificate that his was the most expensive produced by Ford...

roger that!

well, these things are hardly basic. steve saleen (pronounce su-leen, not say-leen) and his boys do modify the car in other areas as well.

still, i agree with you 100%. i cannot see paying more than $45-50k for a new s281/351. for that kind of $$, i can do pretty much the same thing to a new GT. ;)

and since i live in SoCal, i get to see saleen's all the time. there's a '00 not too far from where i work and one of my club's members has a '99 s281. :thumbup:
