Here is my 1st baby, a beautiful two owner 2004 Saleen S281 Mustang. I purchased it with 49.5k miles in July or August of 2013. It currently has under 56,000 miles, never being used as a daily driver, at least since I have owned it. As a Mechanical Engineer, I took meticulous care of the care both in maintenance and period correct parts and authentic accessories, even the hard to find ones. The car is original with a rear Saleen license frame, (4) Stainless/brass plated "S" tire valve stem caps and NOS "S281" Fender Badges. The original floor mats and Saleen seats are also included. The left wheels are in excellent condition without curb rash, but were previously refurbished (painted) before I owed it. You cant tell it is painted except both wheels have paint peeling from inside the lug area. The original Saleen printed serpentine belt and pulley are also on the car.
I will also include an Authentic Saleen car cover. It is used, (~5 years old, in good to fair condition). I attempted to wash it and the washing machine ripped it in a couple spots, but it is still usable and could be repaired with some patches. 
This car is original and un-molested and runs perfectly. There are a few minor rock chips you would expect from a car with ~56K miles. One of the center caps is missing, fell off on a recent drive. Saleen is working on reproducing them. From 10 feet away it looks like a show car and is a real head turner.  
Two years ago, Sept. 2016, I invested around $4k into the car for minor restorations @ Bulldog Rod & Custom in Exton, PA. The driver seat has new foam, front seats were redyed and look brand new. I replaced the faux leather Shift boot and e-brake boot with charcoal Italian leather. The original stitching was falling apart, but I still have it, and will be in the trunk. Currently, there is a professionally installed Kenwood Excelon head unit in the car with bluetooth streaming & handsfree installed plus the original radio will be included. Some other items done at this time and since then:
Front wheel liners, L&R  replaced with OEM Ford Trunk gas springs replacedNew Front Brake Pads (~500miles since)NOS Saleen Wheel replaced front right wheel. (Purchased from Saleen Dream on eBay) Original        cracked Saleen wheel can be provided with the car at auction winner's requestRear right wheel was refurbished and powder coated New Authentic White Saleen Window banner installedNOS Authentic S281 Fender Badges installedFascia mesh in the Saleen ground effect were re-paintedMotorcraft MAX Battery ~2015Master cylinder replaced 2018New Passenger side tie rod replaced 2018Tires easily have 10,000 miles remaining (Front 7/32, Rear 6/32)I always use full synthetic oil.Original Saleen K&N Filter was cleaned around 2k miles ago.Saleen Reprinted Winder Sticker 2018Saleen Letter of Authenticity with Plastic Stand 2018Inspected June 2018 (emission except)Has been insured by Hagerty and Grundy Classic Car Insurance, for $25k
Car will be sold as is. I will consider other offers but I will not give the car away. I don't need to sell it, I just wish I had more time to enjoy it. With one kid and a second on the way, I would be happy to know someone else is enjoying it as much as I have. Please feel free to ask questions and request other pictures. 
NADA Guide for Classic Cars has had the value for this car increase over $5k since I purchased it in 2013 without depreciation. It has appreciated value! This vehicle is a great collector car for someone who still wants to enjoy it on the road while not being a trailer queen.
If interested, I also have a some other parts that are NOT included with the listed, but can also be purchasedSaleen printed serpentine belt $75NOS Rear S281 Badge $175Saleen replica front wheel $100 (bought new, but was used until I purchased the NOS replacement)      Could be used as a full size spare
As for the AutoCheck report, this car has NEVER been in an accident, to the best of my knowledge has NO frame damage and does NOT have a lien on the title. I have added photos of the original CarFax I received, printed on 8/10/2013 (page 6 is blank). Also, the car's title is in my hands! If anyone is interested in the car you are welcome to see it and/or I can meet you at a shop of your choosing, within a reasonable distance to 19335.
