One of the biggest names in hot rod Mustangs is Saleen Automobiles. By offering high performance, turnkey sports cars, the company has transitioned from a garage bay tuner to a highly respected, OEM-level manufacturer. And, as one of only 500 cars produced to honor legendary Indianapolis 500 winner Parnelli Jones, this spotless Parnelli Jones 302 is perhaps one of the firm's coolest creations. Painted in Grabber Orange, outfitted with one of the most cohesive performance packages ever produced, and showing a mere 3,783 miles, this Saleen is quite possibly the last essentially new car of its kind. If you're a savvy collector looking for a future collectible that's an absolute thrill to drive, there's no time like the present!

BODYWORK/TRIM

According to Steve Saleen, the Parnelli Jones 302 was designed to capture the raw, aggressive attitude with which Parnelli raced. That meant you could order any color Parnelli Jones 302 you wanted as long as it was Grabber Orange. Naturally, since this Mustang is an essentially new car, its paint looks great. Fit and finish is exceptional, thanks to the largely hand-built nature of custom Saleen add-ons. And, despite performing everyday tasks as flawlessly as a stock Mustang, the car has been completely re-envisioned to incorporate many subtle tweaks that successfully recall the glory days of Trans Am racing.

To create that road ready, Trans Am racer appearance, Saleen equipped the Parnelli Jones 302 with every cosmetic trick in their book. At the front of the car, a re-designed bumper hangs a black serial number between a chrome-trimmed grille, injection molded headlight dividers and a racing-style splitter. Behind that bumper, a fully functional shaker seats race-derived pins in front of satin “S302” emblems. At the sides of the car, ornamentation is kept to a minimum with black mirrors reflecting a billet Saleen fuel filler and color-keyed quarter window covers. And at the back of the car, Satin Black Sport Slats lead a replica Boss spoiler, which shades a chrome-trimmed valance and a second re-imagined bumper that weaves a black splitter around polished exhaust tips.

ENGINE

Lift Parnelli Jones #307's trick Shaker Hood and you'll find a Saleen-built SOHC V8 that twists an SAE certified 400 horsepower into 390 lb./ft. of tire-melting torque. Equipped with a high compression, high revving valvetrain, this blueprinted 302 utilizes a forged and internally balanced crank, forged 4340 H-beams, forged pistons, hand-ported heads, Comp cams and springs, variable cam timing and a Saleen PowerFlash tune to provide thrilling acceleration all the way to its 7,000 RPM redline. The hand-assembled mill sees a bump in displacement thanks to an increased stroke. And little details like bore honing, an aluminum flywheel, a billet harmonic balancer, Saleen pulleys, new cylinder head bolts and Fel-Pro gaskets ensure the OEM reliability that goes hand in hand with a new car. What that means for you is a rocket-like sprint to triple-digit speeds from an engine that never seems to feel like it's out of breath. And, like the legendary Trans Am Fords it honors, this car doesn't carry the imbalanced weight and mechanical stigma of having a big engine shoehorned into a tight engine bay.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

In keeping with both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones race ancestry, this limited-edition Mustang was designed utilizing a precision Macpherson front and Watt's link rear suspension. That chassis rolls under a rugged Tremec 5-speed, which drives a Saleen 8.8-inch axle that's finished with big, 3.73 gears. Steering is power-assisted Ford hardware. Stops come courtesy of Ford and Saleen calipers, which clamp two and four pistons around vented and slotted rotors. Exhaust expels through a stainless Saleen set-up, which provides throaty, low resonating audio. And at the corners of the car, Mini-lite-style wheels spin 275/35ZR19 Pirelli P Zero Rossos in front of 275/40ZR19 Pirelli P Zero Rossos.

INTERIOR

Inside, Saleen makes the interior its own with colorful leather upholstery and plenty of signage. Showroom-fresh thrones are fitted with bright Grabber Orange inserts, orange stitching and cool Parnelli Jones emblems. An already ornate dash founds Saleen-branded telemetry behind a twin-gauge accessory pod, a serialized Saleen plaque, and signatures from both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones. Beneath that dash, a traditional console frames a Saleen Quick Shifter that's topped with a custom Parnelli Jones knob. In front of the driver, a traditional Mustang steering wheel sports a Saleen Parnelli Jones Edition emblem. Saleen Parnelli Jones floor mats complement Saleen Parnelli Jones sills. And naturally, all the usual luxuries are present and accountable, including Cruise Control, power windows, power door locks and a crisp Shaker 500 sound system.
