When Ford launched the hot-selling, redesigned Mustang in 2005, it didn’t take very long for custom and tuner shops to churn out performance parts and kits. Saleen, a famous Mustang tuning shop, introduced several packages the first few years. The H281 Heritage edition is built on top of the base S281 ‘Stang. Saleen boosted the horsepower from the stock 300 to 335. Also included with the build were special Heritage leather seating, badging and c-stripe graphics.
This one-owner, always-garaged Saleen Mustang is a good example of the low-mileage,ultra-pampered special edition performance car. The owner let it out of the garage for only 2,752 miles in five years — barely enough distance for an oil change.
Options ordered on the car include 3.73 gears on a posi diff, rear window louvers and rear side window scoops. Rear window louvers usually make me cringe, but these are understated and much less offensive than when they first became popular in the ’80s. The seller says the Tungsten Gray paint is found on only four H281s.
MSRP was around $42k. When two days of bidding were left, the bid stood at $16k and the reserve still to be met. This is one of only 60 H281s produced, 49 of which were coupes.
