1989 Mustang California Special Edition Saleen INFO??? Anyone?
I would like some info on my 1989 Mustang California Special With the RACECRAFT Suspension. Anyone know anything about them as mine seems to be faster than the bolt on 5.0's in my area. Other than suspension, did I get any other performance goodies? Any info helps from Suspension parts to rearend gears to interior... Anything. Thanks!
Here are a few pictures:
I have a 1988 Saleen GT California Addition and I am trying to find out if it is worth anything. It has 44000 miles, it needs wheels, tires, a little body work and paint.
The car has little to no collector value. Sounds like it's in ruff condition so Maybe $4000 because of the milage. A photo of the entire car would probably help with the guesstamates. I'd probably just start a new thread also vs bumping a very old one that was started by someone else.

I had a 89 california edition for a few yrs there where rumors that there were only 50-100 made, and they were all built out of the Petaluma California Ford dealership as a add on package to try and boost sales, I tried to contact them but they kept giving me the runaround so I was not able to dig up much information other than they were all debuted at the Sears point Raceway, all where white with moon roof, they were basically a stock 5.0 Gt. With the race craft suspension and a Hurst shifter, unfortunately they are not Vin verifiable so as for now the collectibility/value is very low but that might turn around in the future you just never know
I looked at a California Special when I was buying my GT. It had twin turbos on a 5.6 liter engine. It had the racing suspension and gold BBS rims in 16 inches. It also had California Special' in script on the rear deck. It was a nice car.
