How do you tell if something is a real Saleen?
on: Feb 24, 2010, 11:28 am
So my brother lives near this car.  He wanted to know if it was real.  It has some Saleen parts.  But without seeing any of the numbers, it's hard to tell.  Anyone else have any ideas?

That is not a real Saleen, missing the gauges, engine bay id, steering wheel is wrong, no dash number or bumper number, door panels don't have the Saleen stitching in them that's just for starters.

Not to mention the pack of cigs on the passenger floorboard. I dont know about you, but even if I were a smoker I wouldnt want the smell of cigs pervading my stang.

You can send sema88 a PM (he might see the post too) and have him look in one of his books.  I think the last 6 of the VIN is what he would need.  It doesn't look like a real Saleen to me for all the reasons Jeremy listed.

It at least doesn't appear that he is trying to sell it as a Saleen but would be nice to know for sure. :)

I do agree with some of the things Jeremy has pointed out.  But a steering wheel might be changed if the original was in really bad shape.  The bumper numbers could be taken off during a repaint.  The gauges are what I was thinking, since those are harder to change.  I did try to look for some of the Saleen tags, but I could not see clearly enough to be sure.

I was under the impression that part of the Saleen mods included a 5 lug conversion.

Just to anserwer your questions, it's a fake and a bad one at that!


#1. Why do you think it's a real Saleen, cause it has a Saleen windshield banner and a wing, that's the only thing that is a Saleen part on this car and nowhere in the ad does it even state that it's a Saleen.

#2.They only built 3 1984 Saleens and they all belong to one collector and they aren't for sale!

#3. Saleen didn't do 5 lugs till 1987

HA!  I was looking at the roll of Duct tape wondering what that was for!
Maybe a quick repair of two?
Nice jagged cut hack job where the stereo should be!  And WTF is up with the lingering wires?
