February's ROTM nominations were full of heavy-hitters and this pristine Saleen came out on top. It's owner, FEP member 86asccoupe20, is no stranger to limited production and desirable early Foxes as he let go of his 1986 ascMcLaren Capri to purchase 1986 Saleen Mustang #80.
As one might expect of something as scarce as an early Saleen Mustang, the history of the car is well-documented. The car was purchased by the original owner in North Carolina at Snipes Ford. It later wound up in Florida and is now residing with Stan in New Hampshire since his purchase of it last year.
Highlights of the car include the following:
- Momo steering wheel
- 3.08 gears
- Leather shift knob
- Enkei 16-inch wheel
- Racecraft suspension
- Koni shocks and struts
- Escort radar detector
- Original 80,000 miles
- 1 of 6 in gray
A little maintenance and a gear change is in order for the near future. The top-end of the engine will get new gaskets and a set of 3.55 gears out back are soon to come. And, if you're headed to Carlisle this year, keep an eye out for this Saleen as Stan says they should be in attendance.
Once again, a massive congratulations to 86asccoupe20/Stan for this worthy ROTM win.
