Question Q: 2005 Saleen Mustang replacement parts?

If this has been asked before I apologize but Iím am a longtime Mustang owner and enthusiast and have a quick question for you 2005 - 2009 Saleen owners. I am currently looking at a 2005 Saleen in Legend Lime. Itís in pristine shape and looks to have been a car show car. Anyway, my question is, how available are OEM parts for this car? My only concern in purchasing this vehicle is the fact that the front and rear bumpers and side skirts are specific to the Saleen. I have been doing research and have been unable to find any sites that still carry the body parts for the Saleen. I do plan on driving the car but I certainly donít want to end up with a vehicle that if it ever received any body damage it would be impossible to get it back to its original look. Have any of you had any experience with finding body parts for your vehicle? Thank you for any information.

Saleen Performance Parts will be your source for exterior replacement parts.

As far as bumper covers and side skirts for a 2005-09 S-model, sometimes the items are in-stock... other times they are not. When not in-stock, the wait can be months to over one full year for an exterior part.

Various misc exterior parts may be obsolete at this point and will not be reproduced.

If you plan on driving this vehicle, then you best bet is to buy as much as you can from Saleen Performance Parts (or nice used on the secondary market) and store these items so that you can be your own parts source if something goes wrong.

Thank you for the information. I was figuring limited availability. The car will not be a daily driver but will not be left in the garage 365 days a year either. I guess itís a a risk that you take with a 15 year old vehicle.
Thanks again for your information.

I DD a 2006 and thought about hoarding supply of cosmetic parts unique to the car. I managed to source the grille, have spare tail lights. However, I am also thinking that if the car gets into an accident, my insurance company will most likely move to total it for the lack of available parts.

That makes sense as well. The car I am looking at still has a decent price tag, if I buy it I may end up putting some gap insurance to ensure that if something bad did happen that I would still be able to pay it off if it were a total loss. I guess since these cars were produced in such small numbers that even aftermarket parts companies are not willing to produce replica style parts or does the Saleen organization refuse to sell any copyright to reproduce the parts?

I think the lack of a/m parts is due more to a very limited market.

One other thought is - if you plan on retaining the car for a long time then you may start pursuing hoarding parts. In my case, I am leaning towards a Porsche 911 and may have to relinquish the Saleen.

Like previously said. If you plan on keeping it buy parts when you see them even if you donít need them. I think youíll find a lot of owners hoard parts. I donít why they wonít licence someone to produce parts. They said a few years back they where going to produce parts again. They did produce some for a short time but it seems to have stopped.
