Steve Saleen always knew how to get the most out of the Mustang's
style and performance. This 2004 Ford Mustang Saleen S281SC
convertible is aggressive and attractive in its full midnight
package. And there's supercharged V8 performance to back up the
speedy appearance. So it's amazing you can get something so rare
and intimidating for such an affordable price
Saleens have a nice options list and a hand-crafting facility, and
so ordering one from them can be like getting a one-of-a-kind. In
fact, we have a letter from them certifying that this is a 1-of-1
creation! But it's more than just uniqueness that attracted you to
this one. The black paint has a nice glossy style that looks good
no matter if it's reflecting a full moon or noon sunshine. Add in
the black folding roof, smoked tail lights, and black American
Muscle wheels, and you have a great blackout total package. While
the full appearance is quite dark, it also doesn't get to hide in
the shadows. It's anything but subtle thanks to the swoopy Saleen
bodywork. This includes a new front fascia, lower rocker moldings,
an integrated rear wing, and a special rear bumper with center
exhaust. And even the details are aggressive like the gills in the
quarter panels, Saleen side graphics, and the deeply sculpted heat
extractor hood. We especially like to see the serial number on the
front - a great Saleen hallmark - that's so distinctly done in a
contrasting white for everyone to see.
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, power mirrors, and dual airbags. Plus, with
power windows and a power convertible roof, it's easy to open up to
the world even when you're on the go. However, when you decide to
drop the top at home, there's also the option of the hard tonneau
for the back seats that turns this into a true roadster style. And
no matter how you enjoy open-roof motoring, we know you'll love
showing off that bracing bar that adds strength and speedy style.
Best of all, you can do that all through the summer season 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 grippy
leather bucket seats upgraded with Saleen embroidery, a Mustang
sports steering wheel, and Saleen special white-faced gauges.
The "SC" in this car's designation is quite significant. It took
the 4.6-liter V8 and added a Saleen Series IV twin-screw
supercharger on top. And this is more than just a bolt-on piece.
The included Saleen window sticker details how they take Ford's
hardy modular V8 and turn it into a 375 horsepower street-eating
machine. And the cat-delete exhaust loves to growl with power.
Linked to a sweet-shifting five-speed that's stout enough to handle
all the extra power, the true fun of this Mustang is always in your
hands. Plus, Saleens always excel 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 BF Goodrich gForce
rubber to give it the kind of grip to rival far more expensive
The sale comes complete with the reproduction window sticker from
Saleen, the owner's manual packet, and a letter from their registry
verifying this as a 1 of 1. We love a Saleen car because it was
made to enhance the driving experience. This example embodies that
by being the right mix of attractive while still having an
easy-to-enjoy driver-ready style. So don't let this Saleen slip
away, call today!
