    Okay, i have seen a few mustangs around were i live (94-98 model) that have a saleen look and say saleen on them and everything, but they have a GT logo on them. Now i have always called them imposters cause of the GT, but i am starting to doubt myself. I thought that ALL saleens were originally V6 and maintained the original pony badge, am i correct??? Plus since i have an awesome V6 :notnice: i was wanting to get a saleen body kit, anyone know where i can get a real one or a VERY VERY good reproduction for cheap??

    Thanks

    Sorry you are wrong. Most (if not all) S281 Saleens were origonaly GTs and therefor keep the GT badge. It was only the S351 Saleen (and then only certian years) that were originally v6s and kept the v6 badge.

    Finding a Saleen body kit for cheap is nearly imposible, and even if you do, you will pay out the ass in the body work because they suck. Most reproductions cost about the same or are fiberglass. Fiberglass will crack and/or break if you hit something (like a curb when you are pulling into a parking spot).

    PS sorry for ****ty spelling, i am in a heary and dont have time to proof read.

    I know that in 1994 Saleen used the V6 for the S351, then in 1995 they used the GT. But i dont know if they continued to use the GT or if 1995 was just a cost effective test. Ill let one of the other guys answer that one.

    IF i am not mistaken i believe you can easily remove the GT symbol and put the V6 pony on there. It is actually quite popular to do. I was thinking about doing it, people always think my car is a fake because it has the GT still on the side.

    94-8 S351's were mostly V6 cars. There are a few exceptions. 99-up I could not tell you what Saleen used. Even if the S351 started out as a GT it will not have GT badging. The majority of Saleen's produced during those years were S281's and they have the GT badges on them. You will see a few rare Saleen Cobra's. They will have the Cobra badges on them.

    The newer SALEENS have the s281 badge on the side. My 03 has it and I think it looks awsome. Definatley helps in determining a real SALEEN, but can still be copied.

    Do you have a picture of the rear, i am debating whether or not to get the S351 wing or not.
