    Default My 89 saleen coupe is together again for those who care!!

    After months of being apart, my 89 saleen coupe is together again. It will be getting painted in the spring, and then the new sticker kit will be going on. Here are some pics of it. I will put some before and after. 20 coupes made in 89 and this is the only one with blue interior.






    After

    Yea I never liked blue interior, and still dont but with the saleen fabric it auctally looks pretty good.
    I bought this car on craigslist a year ago. It was a older guys and he was t-boned by a bmw. So he didn't want it anymore. So I don't know how but I was lucky enough to get it.

    Had to of hurt a little. When I was 15 (1992ish) my older sister's boyfriend bought a Saleen from Mccafferty Ford in Langhorne, PA. He picked out a Black with Silver striping one. The lot jock drilled the wall in the wash bay bringing it out for delivery, so he had to get a gold one. Only kept it a month, and I got to ride in it once, but it was a cool car.

    The roof and A-piller both got replaced. I did none of it, but my neighbor is a body man so him and his shop did the pulling and the replaced parts, and later he is going to paint it. So I can't wait for that to happen..
    Thanks guys for the compliments.
    Oh and I didn't take any pics of it getting fixed because I didn't really want people to know what the car has been through. Sorry
