Ive been looking at a 2oo1 saleen supercharged coupe. black. with 110 thousand miles he wants 7900 do you think that is too night and the miles are too high. And he told me also that the insurance will be the same as my GT. becuse inusrance does not have a catagory for Saleen is this true also? im just concern about the miles and that its a supercharged car. He toldme i could stil lget about 280 a tank, i know its a Saleen in all but just give me your info .

sounds good to me.. 110k miles is not a lot of miles at all..some of us expect 300, 350k miles out of our engines. 110 is just breaking it in. Pop the oil cap off and sneak a peak into the engine and look around for any sludge.. look for burnt oil on the dipstick and excess burning on the cap itself.
If anything does go, it would be the charger. Sounds like a good car, just use your judgement..or have it checked out.
OK, i tryed to insure the saleen. they keep telling me thers no catogry for saleen mustang. so i gues its a listed as GT mustang. but say if i get in the car accdent they will pay for the Saleen parts right. like saleen front bumper not gt.
In all fairness though, what do you expect, just because its not an original, doesnt make it "fake", in fact it was a complete conversion its not even worth less hypothetically, but the resale should reflect that.
i get about 200 to the tank with my supercharger and stock rear gears. you might get about 220 out of it due to the different charger system. but not sure... buy it and enjoy the gas while its cheap.
Maybe he was talking highway miles? On the highway I can get 360 to a tank with the six speed, so with a five speed and a decent rear gear I could easily see getting 280 a tank on the highway with a blower
thanks, wat about the insurance thing about it being listed as GT. i just wanna make sure if i crash there put saleen back on. what is the value of a supercharged saleen with 109k anyway
Look up the retail value within your area on something like KBB, but even that isn't going to be accurate right now. It's tough to tell because car resellers and insurance companies value cars differently.
But yes, if the car is OEM saleen parts, they have to put those back on the car if it is crashed. Make sure it is an authentic saleen (white number on the front bumper)
There's an area over in the Saleen, Roush, etc... subsection where you can post the VIN # and bumper # and we'll tell you if it matches that car for 2001.
Insurance can be tricky. Some companies will do what others have mentioned, and cover all the OEM Saleen parts if you get into an accident. Other companies will say that their responsibility is to do repairs in order to get you back into a 2001 Mustang GT. I've heard both scenarios....so just be clear on what you are covering with your agent.
Values of Saleens can be found at NADA's website (they have their own category under "Saleen" not "Ford").
I use to get 270 miles/tank of gas out of my Cobra around town like clockwork. As you can guess, that's a driver-dependant variable. I get around 14 or 15 MPG in my Extreme (520 bhp/570 btq). Figure a 2001 Saleen SC will probably fall somewhere between 17 - 22 MPG.
thanks, yea my insurance keeps saying we dont cover saleen mustang. its either GT or Cobra. i said its a GT basicaly but wanted ot make sure there cover the Saleen Parts. becuse it is a SALEEN from the factory
