Lot 838W

2002 Ford Saleen Mustang
Hollywood Homicide
Columbia, 2003.
As with the previous lot, the Hollywood Homicide production company purchased this Mustang Convertible and then shipped it to Saleen Inc. to have it tuned and customized. Saleen installed Saleen body kits, suspension kits, brake kits, leather interior kits, tires and wheels, gauges then topped this off with silver paint and logos. This car has a vortex supercharger on a 4.6 Liter V-8.

The film tells the story of two cops, one cop played by Harrison Ford who moonlights as a real estate agent, and his partner played by Josh Hartnett, a yoga teacher and aspiring actor. Their first case together involves the murder of a popular rap group on stage at an LA nightclub. Suspicion falls on their former producer and then this comedy/buddy-movie/who dunnit/car chase flick really takes off.

The Saleen doesn’t show up until at least half-way into the film, but from the moment it does it’s a star. Hartnett picks up Harrison Ford in the silver Saleen, along with his psychic girlfriend (who has a vision of where to find the fugitive producer). They head over to Rodeo Drive and by chance encounter the villain in his big Cadillac 4x4. From that point we’re into a chase movie with the Saleen hot on the Cadillac’s tail. The chase begins on Wilshire and continues through Beverly Hills up onto Sunset and finally concludes with a major crash on Hollywood Boulevard, in front of Mann's Chinese Theater.

The Saleen Mustang is a memorable car from any standpoint, and certainly one of the stars of the film.

This car has been restored by Ted Moser and his staff at Picture Car Warehouse. This stunt car is used in the film and has been repaired, and repainted 'lipstick red' from the original silver in honor of Steve Saleen's wife. (Illustrated prior to repaint.)
