“Pearl” is a 2008 Saleen/Dan Gurney signature edition 1 of 21 car. Supercharged @ 465 HP the car has a sport tuned racecraft suspension w/a gen II watts-link rear & 373 gears. The 19x9 / 19x10.5 aluminum wheels are wrapped in 285/35/19 Michelin P-Sport tires for grip & the 14” 6 piston disc brakes make sure she’ll stop in time. Interior accents & the infamous Gurney Duckbill spoiler were also added.
These cars were built @ Saleen in Troy, MI. & tuned by Dan Gurney himself before going off to select Ford dealerships across the nation. “Pearl” was sent to Galpin Ford in North Hills, CA. & was 1 of the original promotional cars for the Saleen/Gurney release (3 pics of Dan & Pearl @ Galpin). While 100 of each were allotted for production, due to financial times in 2008, only 68 Gurney’s ever left Troy complete - 37 Blue, 21 White & 10 Red.
I found the car on a used lot in Norco, CA., asking price was $37k. I watched it online for a while & one morning it was listed @ $25k, I hopped in my 02” Roush vert clone & was off. After prox 20 min haggling w/sales manager I bought her @ $21.5k & she showed 31k miles on the ole’ ticker – Just barely broken in! That was May 30th 2014
