Ten examples of the Saleen S351 Mustang Speedsters were built in 1996 and three were painted in Rio Red. The S351 Speedster combined Ford's 351 cubic-inch small-block engine with the Thunderbird-like appeal of the optional tonneau cover for the convertible back seat.

Steve Saleen introduced the S351 model in 1994 by offering a purpose-built 351 from the SVT Lightning pickup. In 1996, the S351 package was available on V-6 Mustangs, which added 351 power, Racecraft suspension, upgraded interior and Saleen body kit. The following year, the S351 Saleen continued the evolution of the 351 engine, which had already been equipped with roller rocker arms and Saleen-engineered intake, by adapting aluminum heads to increase horsepower to 400 bhp. The S351 models were also given a 2½-inch high-flow exhaust system, high-performance pressure plate and clutch, larger three-core radiator and Saleen engine-management processor. The S351s wore the same Saleen body kit as the S281 models but with a more aggressive rear spoiler, while the interior came with Recaro sport seats, matching rear-seat leather upholstery, white-face gauges with 200 MPH speedometer and quick-ratio shifter with Saleen shift knob. Handling was improved with the help of Saleen's Racecraft suspension that supplied Koni struts and shocks, variable-rate coil springs, G-load brace, urethane sway bar bushings, caster/camber plates and 5-spoke Saleen wheels with 18-inch performance tires.

This particular example is equipped with the optional Saleen/Alcon 4-wheel disc brakes, upgraded Kenwood audio system, Auburn limited-slip differential and prototype 6-speed manual transmission. It was also optioned with the $2,351 Speedster package, which added a Sport Bar with third brake light and hard tonneau cover.
