It only cost an estimated $61,525.00 to own one of these Limited production Steve Saleen's "Parnelli Jones Edition" tribute to the BOSS302!
This is indeed a very very special Pony! #238 of 500, the car was built 02/2007, w vin#75265030 S-302PJ.
In the seven years we have been open at our Boutique store, this is only the second one of these to come around! And this car has just a tad over 11K miles on it!
Following is a detail of what went into these cars, but sufficed to say, it’s a lot more than just a pretty face.
If you are looking for a very unique car, and definitely not one of the heard, here it is. Full of performance, excellent design, truly legendary affiliations, and excellent collectability is all part of this package... and did we mention, extremely fun to drive!!
“2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Ford Mustang
Who's The Boss? While Ford prepares for the revival of the 302 Mustang, Saleen beats it to the punch
Well, Saleen plans to produce just 500 examples of its Boss, so if you don't act quickly you may miss out. Furthermore, Saleen's version isn't exactly a Boss, as it's devoid of "Boss" decals-Ford, naturally, is a bit protective of the name-so you won't be spending hard-earned money on a "Boss 302," per se. Rather, Saleen's 'Stang comes tattooed with another name, one that arguably carries more fame and cachet than Boss. The signature is none other than that of Parnelli Jones (literally, Parnelli signs the dashes of all 500), the legendary race car driver who, in addition to winning the Indy 500 and numerous sprint-car, stock-car, and Baja truck races, piloted a Boss 302 Mustang to the 1970 SCCA Trans-Am title, beating the likes of Mark Donohue, Dan Gurney, Sam Posey, and George Follmer. All of which makes Parnelli Jones the Boss.
In addition to Parnelli's Sharpie script on the metallic dash, the Saleen/Parnelli Jones Mustang comes with just about every Boss 302 cue from 1970-save for the obvious one-each tastefully performed on Grabber Orange Mustang GTs that, following arrival at Saleen's Irvine facility from Ford's Flat Rock, Michigan, assembly plant, are completely stripped down and rebuilt to Saleen's specs. The nostalgic touches, applied in Irvine, consist of black side and hood stripes, the latter framing a functional "shaker" hood; a black decklid, rear spoiler, and louvered rear window cover; and 19-inch Minilite-inspired alloy wheels. Of course, all the powertrain and chassis goodies are there, too, including a 3.73:1 rearend, a Tremec five-speed manual, specially calibrated Saleen N2 dampers and linear-rate coil springs, a Watts Linkage on the live rear axle, 14-inch slotted front brake discs with four-piston calipers, and the requisite 302-cubic-inch, 24-valve Ford modular V-8 replete with forged-aluminum pistons and forged-steel connecting rods and crankshaft.”
