Seems like the #14 SAAC MkI Mustang had a lot of money thrown at it, but I'm not sure I agree with the taste.  I guess the yellow was done after tha fact, but I wonder if the car started out as one of the Cervini hood cars we previously discussed.

We'll that's unique. I wonder who the Portland Trailblazer was. That '92 MKI 014 is far from original. Hard to belive someone would customize such a rare car. Now it looks like an  customized GT. The seller seems to think the Cobra R wheels were part of the package. We know that's innacurate. I despise the exhuast tip cutouts through the rear bumper. The Cervini hood was never a part of these cars. It's just one of the few early custom hoods that was available back in the day. Thanks for posting the pics and link!

Here's the first of several pics. The first two are likely from a press pack and the third is from an unknown insider.

I thought it was interesting the #004 car included spares.  I guess when they switched from the Shelby stickers to the SAAC ones, they had some extra's.  Ironically, because of that I think the SAAC ones are probably more rare today.  I also think all these years later, the cars stand on their own for their role in history and all of the people connected to them.

Nice pictures! Having an extra set of emblems is very cool!
The emblem sheet of Shelby AAC badges shown above is the most common to find.
The later SAAC MKI badges are less common as are the SAAC MKII badges.
For the SAAC Snake, they only produced the new side window badges and used the rest of the MKII sheet emblems for production.


Here's some photos of the engine and the exclusive parts for the Shelby AAC MKIs first 9 cars.

Next up are the wheels, front / rear suspension, and the front brake ducts.

Over at the Portland 1992 picture thread I just saw this and figured I would share it over here.

At first I didn't understand why you posted this picture. Then I saw the blue stripes in the background...good eyes you have there.

Looking at the '97 registry and grid codes vs. Snake production, I was able to answer my question regarding red or blue interiors. Only gray cloth or black cloth cars and only white leather or black leather were made. It was also helpful to ID almost every snake car I have pictures of.
  Cool one

Here are some pictures of what I believe to be a MKII convertible in black and gold. I wish I knew what number it was.

EDIT: This appears to be MKII 003

Here's one more B&W and what I think is the same car in a very small color photo from the web.
With less than a handful of convertibles made in black I'm sure someone can ID this car for us (me).

Yes, I would say they are the same car and even the same photo shoot.

Seems like the same house in the background in these two shots.





Neat old pictures for sure.  I've tried to find old pictures of the 1993 Cobra cars, and you would be surprised how few pictures people took back then!  I actually have a lot more pictures from the 1960's and early 1970's as reference for cars from that era in my area than I can find for the early 1990's.

Here's the last of the b&w pictures including the rear seat of the MKI, embroidery on the front MKII seat, and the door panel of the MKII.

I've got a few magazine articles and some magazine ads with the SAAC cars in them in the cue.

SAAC MKI article from Mustang Monthly Oct 91.

It looks like the left side brake duct opening is not filled in black while the right side is.
Also, even though they show the ID plate, the number is nearly impossible to read...maybe 008 or 009?

EDIT; The Plate was stamped MKI 009 for the Charlotte introduction. Shortly afterwards this 1991 car was changed to MKI XX4.
(The number ID MKI 009 was later used on another 1992 car not related to this 1991 model in the magazine article)

I still have the "Lighting Strikes Twice" mail brochure that the club sent out. I always thought it was a good looking ad for the SAAC Mustang.      Steve
