(2 photos of a 1988 Light Gray Saleen Mustang Fastback) Light Gray 1988 Mustang Saleen fastback owned by Kevin Abrahamson from Warwick, Rhode Island. Kevin tells us, "I bought the car from a local used car dealer on 7/3/99 with 48,511 miles. It just turned 56K. I tracked down the original owner here in R.I. and he gave me everything he had left except the SALEEN Jacket and Helmet that came with the car. The car came from Snipes Motor Co.in N.C.and I believe it was Chuck Snipes' Personal Demo and Track Car. Being a demo does not allow the company to sell it as new. The car came with a 'Approved For Daylight Use Only' Inspection Sticker which leads me to believe that the headlights were removed possibly to vent more air to the intake or possibly a supercharger. I have the sticker as well as the Saleen Autosport Production Work Order with 'to JBA for modification' which I believe was for the Factory installed Roll Bar and Frame connectors. Since coming to R.I. the original motor was
modified with GT40 aluminum intake and heads (NOT EXPLORER) and converted to mass air as well as various other upgrade mods."

(2 photos of a 1988 Bright Regatta Blue Saleen Mustang Convertible) Regatta Blue 1988 Mustang Saleen convertible was originally owned by Mark Seefried from Highland Village, Texas. It has a 302ci V8 and a manual transmission. Mark had this to share, "This is the only Regatta Medium Blue Metallic Blue Saleen Mustang convertible made. The number is 706 and is in the Saleen Registry. We special ordered the Mustang in June 88 through Damerow Ford in Beaverton Oregon and I picked her up at Saleen Autosports in Anaheim Hills that September 88. We were told it was the last car off the Saleen line at the time and were pretty upset when we found out otherwise, but that is another story."

(5 photos of a 1988 Scarlet Red Saleen Mustang Hatchback) Scarlet Red 1988 Mustang Saleen hatchback owned by Josh Ewald from Langhorne, Pennsylvania. It has a 302L V8 engine and a manual transmission. Josh tells us, "I bought the car about two years ago locally off craigslist. It was repainted, the original body kit wasn't installed, and in very poor condition. The original Flofit interior was destroyed. It had no heatercore. The valvecovers leaked like crazy right on the factory headers. The wheels were spray painted black. BUT it did have all the correct Saleen pieces to restore. The car was all stock save a set of mufflers and a Centerforce clutch. A year long build consisted of a full interior restoration (seats ,headliner, doorpanels, dash) Exterior wet sand and buff. Restoration of the original 16x7 and 16x8 ARE basketweave wheels (30hrs labor alone). The car is #399 of 708 made in 1988 and 1 of 5 made in the red/beige/gold combination. Possibly a 1 of 1 considering the stripe delete option."
