The 1987 Saleen was a modified version of the newly redesigned Ford Mustang base level LXs. The Saleen exterior features were altered, including the rear decklid spoiler and front valance. Performance changes included four wheel disc brakes, five lug SVO rotors, heavy duty master cylinder, 8-inch wide rear tires, and an optional 3.55 rear for quick acceleration. Saleens were converted from Mustang hatchbacks and convertibles. One very special coupe was converted for Austin Craig, who was the account manager for Ford. The competition versions of Saleen won the SCCA Manufacturer's championship.
