Default Seeking: Saleen Authorized Dealerships? - Dallas Metro Area

Is there any official list of Saleen Authorized dealerships? The only one I found, seems dated, as the website an dealer (in Plano, Texas) don't seem to exist. I only just recently moved to the Dallas area, so any help with finding a reputable place to take my car would be much appreciated!

My car recently passed 50k miles, and I wanted to get it tuned and serviced by a Saleen authorized mechanic. On top of that, as of about 2 hours ago, I got into a car accident. Nothing too serious, but the hood, fender, and front ground effects will have to be replaced, and again, I'd rather have an authorized dealership working on it.

Five Star Ford in Plano is an authorized dealer but they don't stock them. Talk to Corey White. He is the Saleen and Roush specialist.

The original Saleen aluminum vented hood is no longer in production. Your replacement front bumper cover will either come from Saleen in California or from the over-stock of parts that may still exist.

Is this not the same hood? No picture, but it's listed as 05-09 SC Fiberglass hood.

The 2006-09 Supercharged and Extreme models came with an aluminum hood.

The 2005 Supercharged came with a composite hood.

Saleen offered both the composite and aluminum version in the parts catalog until 2010 or so. The stock was eventually depleted.

There are both composite and carbon fiber versions of the 2005-2009 vented hood being offered today.

While the stamped aluminum version is obsolete and can sell for a premium on the secondhand market.

The large Saleen Inc dealer network folded towards the end of 2008.

Then the Saleen Performance Vehicle upstart folded towards the end of 2011.


During 2010 through 2016, it seems a few SMS Limted / Saleen Automotive dealers would sell and stock vehicles for a year or two then move away from the opportunity.
