Default Registry: 1990 Deep Emerald Green Saleens

Today I had the opportunity to view a private collection of fox bodied mustangs. Within this group of cars was Saleen #90-0010. The car is a deep emerald green convertible with white top and white interior. It is an automatic and has a Paxton Supercharger installed by Saleen.

The car has 80 original miles. That's right, 80. The window sticker is still on the passenger window. Once I receive permission to post pictures I will put them up.

Default 90 Saleen Mustang - 7 UP Car

Read the post - and assume this is Bruce Weiss's (sp) car that was in Mustang Monthly in the 90's? After reading the post, I went out to my garage and looked at 90-140 - the one I purchased on Mary 14, 1990. I think 90-010 is the first 7 Up car, and believe mine is the 3rd - but don't quote me on that.

While my car has been driven a fair amount I still love the way it looks and love driving it. Original paint, top, interior - and the valve covers have never been off - still runs great. Still an awesome car -

Your note reminds me how lucky I am -

Bob

Sounds like the Carpenter collection. I believe Mark had it on his site for sale quite a few years ago.

Bob -

Didn't know that - interesting. I'd like to know how many of these cars are left. I personally know of: 010, 140,141, 217 -

I understand there were 11-12 of them. Anybody know of other 7UP Saleens?

Bob

Thought there was an article in Mustang Monthly about Daniel Carpenters collection. He has some real nice low mileage foxbodies.

You are correct sir, Daniel Carpenters collection it was. It is very impressive. The lowest mile car in the collection is a white 86 SVO...

4 original miles. Other notables include a 93 Cobra "R" with 29 miles, an 83 GLX with 6 miles and an 86 GT which was never dealer prepped with 37 miles, to name just a few. I took pictures (with my phone) of every car. Just waiting for permission to post them.

All - so we should call out the car numbers that we know: Car # 90-10, 90-140, 90-141, 90-173, 90-217

Are we aware of any other car numbers?

Not definitive.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

90-0152 appears to be the 1st and 90-0010 appears to be the last.

Valstrough Ford & Bleakley Ford were repeat offenders in ordering Emerald Green Saleens.

The Greg Wackett archives does have a 1990 Saleen sales letter to dealers stating they had Emerald Green Mustangs ready for conversion. So, this would appear not every Green 1990 was a special order drop ship car. There may have been a small pool ordered by Saleen Autosport.

The owner of 91-0095 has been contacted, and by all indications, this car will be at the SCOA Nationals this year. Car has a very interesting history to say the least. By the way, this car was sold at Bleakley Ford.

I was going to post 'Pics! Or it didn't happen!' tongue-in-cheek, of course. But you did post one pic. So this will be the 'More pics please?!' post instead. Nice car.

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.

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

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.
