Default Seeking info: 96-0236 S281

Just purchased 96-0236 and looking to find out anything I can on the car. Ie, what options it came with stock. It was repainted sonic blue and I know it was originally a red car but other than that the car is very clean. It doesn't have the factory catback or wheels so I may be on the hunt for those in the future. First project is to replace the dead motor in it and get it running clean again.

The car has a vortech blower, saleen recaros, heat extractor hood, 351 wing, speedster cover, brembo brakes up front. Nice base to start this project.

Ill get some other pictures up soon.

Congratulations on your purchase. Looks like a clean car.

Through the window, looks like I spy 1998 Saleen/Recaro Trend front seats. If original, these were a one year specific seat/cover.

Saleen used Recaro Trend seats from 1998 to early 2003 as standard equipment in their S351, S281 Extreme models and were optional for S281 models.

The 1998 Saleen/Recaro Edition seat is interesting since it was the only version that used a black seat cover with the old Saleen "S-logo." Black interiors were offered from Ford from 1994-98. Ford offered charcoal interiors from 1999-2004. Saleen begin using a new corporate logo for the 1999 model year.

Thanks Dave this is exactly what I was looking for! Yes it does have the recaro seats added into it, not sure what the reflection is but its not a rip on the bolster. As much as I would love to have this car be the original Rio Red this Sonic blue color works for me!
