The Foxbody Ford Mustang has always held an interesting place in the history of the pony car and the definitive version of the car can be said to have hit the market.
This Foxbody special is a 1989 Saleen SSC that was converted by Saleen Autosport to celebrate the Mustang’s 25th anniversary. Like all the others, it is finished in oxford white and completed with yellow and black Saleen graphics. They are sold with manufacturer politeness, a Saleen spec sheet, a car cover, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Arizona address.
The trailer fetch listing shows the 16-inch five-spoke wheels painted Oxford White to match the exterior and wrapped with 225/50 front and 255/50 rear BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2 tires.
A number of interior modifications also distinguish the Saleen from the standard Foxbody Mustang. Notably, the adjustable bucket seats are covered in gray and white leather with yellow contrast stitching and mesh headrests, accompanied by a dashboard, door panels and color-matched carpet. Ford also rocks a 10-speaker audio system, Pioneer stereo with CD player, air conditioning, Hurst quick-ratio converter, four-point chassis support system, power windows and door locks.
Adding to the desire for the car is that it bears Steve Saline’s signature on the dashboard.
Power comes courtesy of a 5.0-liter V8 with brushed aluminum valve caps, a high-performance air filter, and a low-restriction Walker Dynomax exhaust with high-flow catalytic converters. Saleen also fitted the SSC with electronically adjustable Monroe Formula GP shocks and struts, Monroe Formula GP axle damper, strut turret struts and urethane swing rod pivot bushings.
