Parnelli Jones' Boss 302 Mustang race car at Fabulous Fords Forever 2011
While at the Fabulous Fords Forever show in Buena Park, California on April 11, 2011, I was witness to an incredible orchestra emanating from the exhibition area after the show ended and most everybody and their cars had left the grounds, so I rushed over to the grassy area and lo and behold, what did I see? The owners of this fabulous Boss Mustang had arrived from Canada and backed the race car out of the trailer. After a slumber of 9 months, the Mustang was started and unleashed into the parking lot and then returned to the trailer. What an experience!! Super nice owners, very willing to talk about the car - you are a tribute to the hobby. Thank you, gentlemen!

Thanks to the owners!
The black car with the airbrushed green flames on it was totally awesome!
The street was covered in lot's of burned rubber! Somehow the bricks on the
street were a little melted!

As one of only 500 cars produced to honor legendary Indianapolis 500 winner
Parnelli Jones, this spotless 2007 Parnelli Jones 302 is perhaps Saleens
According to Steve Saleen, the Parnelli Jones 302 was designed to capture
the raw, aggressive attitude with which Parnelli raced; therefore, you
could order any color car you wanted so long as it was Grabber Orange.
Naturally, since this is an essentially new car, the paint looks simply
amazing and has barely even seen sunlight, much less rain or inclement
weather. Fit and finish is exceptional, thanks to the largely hand-built
nature of the 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 which recall the glory days
of Trans Am racing.

crisp new 302 cubic inch Saleen built SOHC three valve V8 which produces an
SAE certified 400 horsepower and 390 lb./ft.
of torque. Equipped with a high compression, high revving valve train, this
killer small block utilizes a lightweight aluminum flywheel, a forged
crank, forged rods, forged pistons, ported heads, variable valve timing and
a Saleen PowerFlash tune to provide thrilling acceleration all the way up
to its 7000 RPM redline. 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. The pristine small block fits
naturally between the cars glossy Grabber Orange fenders and presents a
factory fresh appearance with no grease or renegade fluids anywhere to be
In keeping with both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones race ancestry, this
limited edition Mustang was
designed utilizing Saleens own precision suspension. Behind small block
engine, a rugged Tremec 5-speed manual transmission drives a tall 3.73 rear
end, which makes for some spectacular wheel spin in first and second gear,
and astounding acceleration when you get the launch just right. Years ago,
Saleens were criticized for their harsh ride, but those days are long gone.
Taking advantage of the new Mustang's more rigid Macpherson front
and 3 link rear chassis, Saleen engineers carefully chose springs, shocks,
and sway bars that improve responsiveness without sacrificing ride quality.
Exhaust is expelled through a
traditional Saleen stainless steel system that provides their legacy low
resonating sound. And braking is handled by "Saleen" branded four piston
front calipers which clamp large slotted rotors and OEM Ford rear calipers
which squeeze original factory rotors. At the corners, 19 inch Mini-lite
style racing wheels feature cool Saleen/Parnelli Jones center caps and wear
red labeled 275/35 front and 275/40 rear Pirelli P-Zero performance
Inside, Saleen makes the Ford interior its own with leather upholstery and
plenty of signage. The brand new leather seats have been fitted with bright
Grabber Orange inserts, orange stitching and centered Parnelli Jones
emblems, and the ornate Mustang dash houses a Saleen vintage
instrumentation panel which displays "Saleen Parnelli Jones Edition"
scripts among white letters on black backgrounds. At the center of the
dash, an integrated twin gauge pod which displays oil pressure and
temperature sits above both Steve Saleen and Parnelli Jones autographs. In
front of the driver, a traditional Mustang steering wheel has been
fitted with a "Saleen Parnelli Jones Edition" emblem, and in front of the
passenger, a Bud Moore autograph sits above the cars serialized Limited
Edition dash plaque. Between the seats, a traditional Ford console holds a
Saleen Quick Shifter that's complete with a custom satin finished Parnelli
Jones shift knob. And above the seats, a tight headliner is stretched above
visors which are still sealed in their factory plastic.
This Parnelli Jones 302 is the ultimate Saleen when it comes to total
driving experience, and with only 40 miles of drive time, it's an
essentially brand new piece of Mustang and Saleen history. Call,

1966 Ford Mustang, Vintage
Racecar, 600HP, Most Wins, FOR SALE!
This was the most heavily awarded vintage race car in Mexico. It won
everything there was to win... It is now for sale by the builder/driver in
San Diego and it is ready to dominate what the US has to offer. This Mustang has over 600 HP to the
rear wheels and was built as a no-expense spared vintage racer. We are
very pleased to offer this very special consignment from Pedro, it's San
This was built in 2000 from a very nice and solid car that normally would
have been restored for show. Instead Pedro commenced a no-expense spared
build of the perfect vintage race car. He started the restoration by
placing the shell into acid for 24 hours to lighten the metal, giving it
aluminum-like lightness. The car has all the necessary performance and
safety upgrades necessary. He was sponsored by Ford Motor Company through
their racing program so whatever he needed or wanted he received.
During its development this Mustang spent about 50 hours on the
Dyno. With a 406 cu
in stroker motor, Richmond transmission, Tordsen differential, Wilwood
brakes, this is ready to dominate the vintage racing tracks again.
Pedro was an affluent owner of one of Mexico's top restoration facilities-
he had over 50 employees restoring cars in a top notch facility. So
between the Ford sponsorship and his personal restoration facility this car
was built and maintained without regard to cost.
More details will be coming and the Mustang is available for viewing in
San Diego. For more information please contact Harry at
