Default Sold: 99-0236 S281 coupe, Non S/C, 5spd - $8,000 OBO

I'm taking a new work assignment far away and I have no where to store this car while I'm gone so I am putting her up for sale. The car runs and drives well, but has a few issues I will cover in detail. Car is located in Alexandria, Virginia 22314. $8000 OBO.

Good
-1999 Saleen Mustang S281 #236 144K miles 5 Speed
-Black--Paint is good. I had the hood repainted due to fading. Some paint peeling on the lower rockers.
-2-3 dings on the car--very minor door dings
-Interior is good, no tears in the leather, carpet good. Nice aftermarket floormats. I still have the original Saleen mats, but they are shot honestly.
-Comes with BAMA tuner with 3 custom tunes on it
-New Ford Intake Manifold
-New BBK Stainless Long tube headers
-Authentic Saleen Wheels + spare, plus another spare (6 wheels total)
-New OEM Ford Clutch, flywheel, Throwout bearing, Pressure plate (receipts available and installed by Ford)
-New Eibach Springs, Shocks, swaybars, links. I think I still have the Racecraft swaybar, but the struts are gone.
-Tires have 90% tread left--good to go.
-New clutch cable
-New hydraulic booster
-New Kenwood CD/Satellite/MP3/USB/Bluetooth head unit installed
-High Flow cats installed: just passed Virginia Emissions and has a current safety decal.
-New inner Tie Rod Ends (both sides) and 4 wheel alignment.
-Working cold A/C.
-Clear Virginia Title

Bad
-This car does not have the original motor in it. Previous owner installed a non-PI motor in it. Windsor block. (unknown miles) It runs well, but it isn't the original motor, I am sure of it. (noticed it when I did the intake manifold install). Does not smoke or knock.
-Valve cover gaskets. This thing has BBK valve covers on it and they are notorious for leaking. These leak. Not terrible, but enough to be annoying. I'd replace them with Trick flow or OEM.
-Heater core is bypassed. It leaks. So no heat.
-Clutch pedal mechanism needs replaced--it rattles. Drives me nuts to be honest. I suspect it will do the same for the new owner until fixed.
-Tint is bad, needs to be replaced on back glass.
-Rear speaker amps don't work.
-I will include the BAMA tuner module and cables with the sale in the original box.

Summary: A REAL Saleen Mustang, in really nice condition for the miles overall. It is a driver. It sounds great with the exhaust and the new headers. It runs well and you could drive it anywhere. It has a rough idle sometimes, I think because of the tune (BAMA tune was for the PI I thought it had.)

I can provide the VIN for serious inquiries if you want to verify with Saleen. This would make a great base for someone dropping in a different motor. Car is priced appropriately I think, but I am open to reasonable offers. The car is available today and is stored in a private garage in a gated community. Thank you!

If anyone is a member of a Mustang forum, please feel free to share my post. I am flexible on price due to having to relocate far away (first reasonable offer gets it) and I'd prefer to see if go to a Mustang enthusiast if at all possible. Thanks!

I live off of Eisenhower ave in Alexandria. I sometimes work near the BMW dealership in Merrifield on Lee Highway. I think that is close to you. I could bring the car out one day during the week.

Hello all,

Sorry for the late reply. Lots going on in the world lately at work, so I have been away. Anyhow, I have the day off and ran out and took some pictures of stuff not already in prior posts. Let me know if there is something specific you'd like a picture of and I'll get it done for you. Any questions, please just let me know!

Greg, I will be out in Merrifield this Thursday morning 0600-1100 hours if you'd like to swing by and check it out for yourself or anyone else.

Thank you all for your interest!

This car is still for sale. I'm negotiable on price, so first reasonable cash offer gets her. Honestly, I need it gone by mid January at the latest, but the sooner the better, as I have a lot of logistics to figure out between now and February when I leave Northern Virginia.

This car is drive-able. Drives straight, Cruise works, it has a new clutch, cooling system works great, A/C works, brakes are good, all new suspension. Tires are like new. Southern car=no rust!

If the new buyer waits too long though, it will be a COLD ride home with no heat (bad heater core-bypassed!). Like I said, I'm negotiable.

I really don't want to sell this car and will surely regret it. Still, life is taking me in a different direction so....Tell your friends who are about to buy that ratted out, plain-jane GT to forget that! Put a little cash together, a little elbow grease and finish this project and have 99 Saleen #236.
