This 2000 Ford Saleen Mustang S281 delivers convertible appeal mixed with the solid engineering from one the most respected upgrade companies around. So when you can get your hands on a rare extra-performance triple-black pony car for an affordable price like this, you know you're looking at a terrific deal.
Mustangs are a great pony car, but the Saleen is a whole different animal. The S281 package is unquestionably aggressive with a new front fascia, lower rocker moldings, side scoops, a special rear bumper, and a nicely integrated rear wing. And while the black roof looks great in place, when you take it down, this one look absolutely speedy with the roll bar and sleek hard tonneau cover. It's a sinisterly dark package where the only bright spots are the upgraded headlights, Saleen banner above the windshield, and the optional 18-inch polished alloys. The black paint has a high degree of originality. In fact, you even get the serial number under the driver's side headlight. It's part of the Saleen tradition of publically showing how much of an individual build these special pony cars are. So while there is room in the budget if you want to make improvements, we understand exactly why they kept it quite original from Saleen.
Inside, this modern custom classic gives you all the convenience of a loaded Mustang. There's a long list of features like cruise control, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power mirrors, dual airbags, power steering, and factory AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD player. The power windows and a power convertible top mean you don't even have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Best of all, you can do that all through the summer and stay as cool as you look thanks to ice-cold air conditioning. But this is a true driver's car at its heart. That's why you get a leather bucket seat that power adjusts to your ideal driving position. There's also Saleen special white-faced gauges and an upgraded Hurst shifter. Plus, Steve Saleen signed the dash of this car, and we even have the photo for proof.
Ford's 4.6-liter V8 is a great modern power house. While this is believed to be the original block, on a car like this you expect some extra performance. So they upgrades this one to inhale deeper with a BBK cold air intake, and it exhales powerfully with an upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, Saleens always excel is in the handling department, and the S281 package got a comprehensive Racecraft suspension upgrade that includes new springs, struts, and a larger front sway bar. Combine this with four-wheel disc brakes and Pirelli rubber to give it the kind of grip to rival far more expensive exotics.
The sale comes complete with a Saleen reproduction window sticker, and original components like the shifter, air intake, and exhaust are also available. There's even a letter from Saleen certifying that this is only 1 of 4 produced in this configuration! So you're looking at a rare and desirable custom droptop that you know you want in your garage.
