2005 Saleen Mustang – “Barricade” from Transformers

Miles: 4,550

Vin# 1ZVFT82H755115527

This is actually the screen used V8 Barricade as seen in the Movie Transfomers! Great main character movie car! There were only three of these cars built for the movie! Excellent long term collectible….

One of the most recognizable and cult classic Mustangs ever built. Right up there with the “Bullitt” car and the “Gone in 60 Seconds” Mustang! Don’t pass on a chance to own a serious piece of movie history!

Saleen Inc. teamed up with DreamWorks and Hasbro to design and produce several vehicles for the hit movie “Transformers.” After months of conceptual development, Saleen’s Troy production facility took numerous black-on-black S281 Extremes right off of the production line to star as Decepticon hunter, “Barricade,” in the movie.

The movie car built as “Barricade” was constructed as a Saleen and to give the character its evil alter ego, Dream Works also outfitted each Extreme as a Decepticon police car, including a push bar, white doors, emergency lights and Transformers/Police badging.

Condition: Is in very good condition with some minimal screen use wear. Drives and handles excellent. Powered by a Mustang 4.6 liter Saleen S281 motor and an excellent shifting 5 speed.

    A highly (and badly) customized 1991 Dodge Stealth from Knight Rider 2000 went for 54,600.00. Takes all kinds I guess. There's some seriously weird and cool stuff on this auction site.

    Remove the light bar and flat black paint job it would be a pretty neat car.
