This is exactly like all the 500 that followed including the interior, I have the original prototype shown at the New York Auto Show. The vehicle is the one used for all printed media then and still to this day. There are however many one of a kind parts used throughout the vehicle. I found out recently the coolest is that no other 2006 mustang was produced in grabber orange other then this car which ford and saleen worked together. Saleen Original wanted to call it Boss 302 and ford said No - we know why because they intended to use it.

Saleen remanufactured the New York Auto Show car once PJ production was underway. The show car lost a number of prototype parts for production spec parts.

The PJ "mule car" is still dressed as a pre-production PJ.

Good work - makes sense as well - , Orange is the new black lol - neat that ford let them spray that color all the same , unless it is just a coincidence that they chose that color the year before ford offered it for sale to the public. good work all the same your knowledge and investigation ability is priceless. Keep up the good work. I will update my signage to reflect that its the first use of the color for 2006 mustang.

Thank you! I'm really looking forward to this car. I had a 69 fastback with shaker. It was my first car. This car reminds me so much of this with the slats and wing. Cant wait for it to be shipped next week....Chris
