This production run were likely assembled in either Anaheim or Riverside California. From a quick check of known data... I would say without certainty no 1990 green convertibles were assembled in St. Louis.

Saleen Autosport did send a dealer announcement in the spring of 1990 saying they had a limited quantity of available Emerald Green LX convertibles for conversion. So, it would appear some of these cars were created from the Saleen pool of Mustangs and not dealer inventory or special orders.

7UP - Where were they built?
 
All -

I hope this information helps.

When I acquired my car in May of 1990 (original owner) - I wrote a letter to Saleen asking for clarification on this issue. I have a letter from Liz Summar dated 11/2/1990 stating that my car (not sure about others - note below), was built in Dearborn, shipped to Cars and Concepts and then back to Dearborn for final inspection before shipping to Saleen's plant.

She also states "Beginning next week, the Saleen Mustangs will be produced at our new plant in Saint Louis, MO."

In that letter, Liz was good enough to send me the production work order for my car which includes all of the quality checks, and code verifications for my car. It is dated 5/2/1990. My wife and I purchased it on 5/21/1990 at Val Strough - right here in Monterey.

Based on this, it could be possible that the cars could have been built in multiple locations based on build timing. But....I would have thought they were built during a tight timing window. Not sure.

Anyway, like all things - each car has a slightly different story. So let's add to this thread - what sequence were these cars built - and what location? Does anyone know? Who else has their production work order?

Have fun and be safe,

Bob

If my memory is correct, Cars and Concepts in Michigan did the 1983 Mustang convertible conversions and became the convertible top installer from 1984 through 1993 once FMC built convertibles bodies in-house, but did not install tops.

Cars and Concepts Missouri produced standard Saleen Mustangs from late 1990 through 1991.

Most of the Emerald convertibles were produced during April and May of 1990.

Quick & sloppy order:
90-0152
90-0140
90-0165
90-0141
90-0173
90-0179
90-0178
90-0142
90-0186
90-0090
90-0195
90-0217
90-0010

90-0195 was damaged and scrapped in 1990.

So, most everyone would have a 17 digit vin on their Saleen under-hood plate?

The California built cars have 6 digits stamped on the plate.
Thanks,
Craig

Just for reference, my Certificate of Authenticity states mine was built at the Anaheim Saleen Factory.

Hello all, glad I found this thread.

My father actually owns 90-195. The car was stolen off a new dealer lot in VA in 1990. Bill Fox, a Mustang rebuilder out of PA, rebuilt the car to stock LX specs, and my father purchased it in 1991.

We immediately returned the car to full Saleen specs, it currently has around 9500 miles. Nice to see these cars are being tracked down.

Very nice Saleen Mustang. Great effort with the restoration. Thank you for sharing.

Hey Guys,
In looking at my Saleen Letter of Authenticity I am just curious as to how the other 7up cars were spec'd from the factory. It states mine is 1 of 1 with a 3.55 differential, 200 mph speedometer, and CD player. Anyone else have any interesting options on theirs?

Spotted this one in Anaheim Hills today. Unfortunately, no number on the bumper and missing a few Saleen specific items.

That is an interesting sight. :cool:

Reid -

90-140 also has a 200MPH speedometer and CD player. It has 3:08 gears....

Fellow Saleen owners (Deep Emerald Green) -

Has anyone found their build sheet under the carpet? I am beginning a thorough cleaning of the interior, starting with removing the front seats and would like to know the location if you've found yours. As always, thanks for the help,

Bob

428CobraJet 08-28-2019 11:06 AM

looks like 178 went to a new owner. According to fb.

90-178 08-29-2019 04:41 PM

That's correct, it's been sent off to a new home. Been a couple years in the making and finally decided to cut it loose. Thanks to everyone on here for any guidance you have given in the past! Take care.

I ran across this thread while Googling Bruce Weiss about the Bob Glidden Pinto he owned for a while. Someone attributed 90-010 to Bruce on the forum. That is not the number of the 7up Saleen he took delivery of at Bleakly Ford in Atlanta GA during an MCA show. Unless my memory is failing me Bruce received 90-090. He requested 90 from Steve when he called to special order the build. The Paxton was installed at Saleen and I believe other engine modifications. The transmission was worked at Art Carr while being worked on at Saleen. It was delivered to Bleakly for him to pickup while at the show. I helped him (Bruce) wash the car and clean for the show that Saturday morning. The car was to be a daily driver with a special ZR1 purpose. The following spring at Pensacola MCA show I had the pleasure of an outing in the car with Bruce. Nothing short of a ZR1 killer. I don't have any idea where 90-090 is now or if Bruce had more than one but it has always been one of my fondest Mustang encounters. I hope this might answer some questions for the members here on the thread. If any of you find 90-090 for sale buy it!

Hi. Welcome to the forums! Yes, as you know you are correct. Mr. Weiss had 90-0090. This vehicle had many engine upgrades and differing equipment.

90-0010 was purchased by Ken Schmidt and also featured the Paxton supercharger, automatic transmission and 2-point roll bar like the Weiss car, but did not have all the "other" extra equipment like 90-0090.

Correct, the Weiss car (90-0090) was driven while the Schmidt car (90-0010) was never driven.

90-0090 resides in a private collection.
