Does anyone know this car?

Vin appears to be 1FABP28M3GF319106

https://mosingmotorcars.com/vehicles...saleen-mustang

Looks like mostly original, with some minor mods.

Any info would be appreciated.

And before I forget, thank you all for the ongoing assistance with my search.

Chuck

Seems like a pretty nice car. one detail I did notice, with regard to the ripped back seat. That is the OEM Ford interior, so will have a much better chance (vs impossible) to find a replacement (87-89 are flofit, and they are unattanium). its a "four eye" which is going to be a pretty rare car, and for 86 you do get the upside of FI.

Thank you sir. I do like the 4 eye Saleenís with the cool cover over them.

Iíve read on here I have a better chance of riding a unicorn with a leprechaun on my lap than finding those seats.

The pictures do show some sketch looking wiring under the hood, would like to know what thatís for, and of course no under carriage pictures. Will definitely be paying for an independent inspection first.

Thanks for the observations.

Make sure to carfax it, just to be sure the odometer hasnít rolled over.

Looks like a good one though.

Hopefully I did not confuse. Actually the 86 seats are OEM Ford, and relative to the Flo Fits of the 87-89 cars, are possible to find.

Looks to be a good buy. Don't let the rear seat scare you - that's easy.
More underhood mods than I like to see, but shouldn't be TOO bad to fix up.

Would be nice to know if the Kenny Brown decals are for show or if they actually represent some of the work performed to this '86.
