In 2007, to commemorate the reintroduction of the 5.0 (302cid) V-8, Saleen Specialty Car conceived the limited edition Parnelli Jones Mustang to honor Jones’ 1970 Trans Am championship. Like Jones’ original, all 500 special editions were painted Grabber Orange. Parnelli Jones had this to say about this limited edition: “It's a true honor to have a special edition Saleen wearing my name. This impressive car takes me back in time – it makes me want to take it for a run around the track. I'm sure that this car will be an adrenaline-pumping experience for anyone who has the chance to own or drive one. I think that this car is going to evoke nostalgia not only for Steve Saleen and myself, but for everyone that lays their eyes on it.”
The shaker hood, black trunk deck, hood pins, rear window louvers, 302 stripes and spoiler pay homage to the original and highly sought-after Boss 302 Mustang; however, this modern classic is much more user friendly with all of the comfort and convenience features one expects in a modern car – all without sacrificing blistering performance. The Saleen/Parnelli Jones motif is featured throughout the car, and it has been well cared for. Originally retained by the selling dealer in South Carolina, it was first sold with some 1,000 miles on it to the first private owner. He subsequently drove the car sparingly until it transferred to the current Texas owner in 2012 with around 3,500 miles. It has been carefully and consistently driven, with proper oil change servicing, and has been garage kept. Showing less than 11,000 miles, the seller reports that all the looks and excitement are fully backed up by a completely exhilarating experience behind the wheel.
This limited edition and last produced special edition is a must have for any serious Ford or Mustang collector. The car is in excellent condition and this rare example likely has high future appreciation potential and is without a doubt a blast to drive, so add this unique Special Edition to your collection.
