If you contact Team Saleen and get a "letter of authenticity" on it they will break down exactly how many cars were created in your color and with your options.

It a very cool thing to have and keep with your car.

ironexecutioner,

The "by color" information is usually only generated during the creation of a letter of authentication on a specific car.

You can still try calling 1-800-888-8945 option 2 and seeing if someone might be able to help give you the answers you're seeking, but unfortunately they may not have it handy.

Great to know. I own 1989 #0565 and I was told it is 1 of 2 painted in Medium Shadow Blue but I would like to verify that. I purchased the car new in 1989 from John Bleakly Ford in Ga. I also "owned" 90-0024 for two weeks until I realized the seller was attempting to sell me a car that was stolen. Too bad that deal didn't go through because it was 1 of 8 notch-backs produced in 1990. I also owned a 1996 S281 in green but I can't remember the production number.

89-0565 was a Bright Regatta Blue hatchback. Believed to be one of three 1989 model year Saleen Mustangs painted in this exterior hue. The other two for the year are believed to have been coupes.

90-0024 was a black and gold coupe. One of very few black paint 1988-91 coupes to feature the gold exterior trim.

It is believed that Ciener-Woods Ford received a Deep Forrest Green 1996 S281 coupe. It was the lone SN95 S281 coupe painted this exterior color. 96-0397 was the ID number.

Default Medium Shadow Blue #0565

Hi Dave - Thank you for the reply and the picture. What a great pic! There are two medium shadow blue cars in the picture you just posted. The car in the distance appears to be a 1988 car with 1989 wheels. I do not believe any 1989 cars came with the thicker lower striping but I could be wrong. There is a very good chance that the car right behind the black car is mine but I cannot see the wheels in order to be certain. I had the wheels painted to match the car within the first six months of owning it. I sold the car after owning it for 14 months to Bob and Theresa Vickery. She was editor of Mustang Times and they were big into going to car shows so I assume this would have been one of the shows they took the car to. I bought the car back from them 9 years later and I still own it today. I am going to try to attach a pic I took just a few days ago. My car still has the original paint except I did have the front spoiler re-sprayed. I do want to say that my car is without a doubt Medium Shadow Blue. Your information is correct about the black notch-back I "owned" for two weeks and may very well be correct about the green car; I really don't know. I bought the green S281 from a dealer south of Atlanta Ga. (not John Bleakly) and was told the owner was in the military and being shipped overseas but I don't remember why that dealer had the car.

I checked the Saleen Book by Brad Bowling and 96-0397 is listed as an automatic car so I know that could not have been the car I owned.

The other green 1996 was 96-0066. This S281 was Pacific Green.

Each of the green 1996 S281s are 1-of-1 with their shades of green for the model year.
