Default Seeking information: 98-0161 S281 Cobra - Bright Atlantic Blue

Hey all,

I've been trying to locate this vehicle for several years now. It's only 1 of 2 Bright Atlantic Blue speedster verts, and I cannot find ANY information about this car on the web. I've heard it was wrecked, but that has yet to be confirmed. I find it hard to believe that this car is tucked away in a garage somewhere, but who knows.

Thanks!

Yes it's truly a rare vehicle. There was 1 coupe (#78 i believe) which was featured in Mustang Monthly 10 years ago, and the two verts (89, 161).

Bright Atlantic Blue was a standard Ford production color from 1998-2000. Offered mid-year for the 1998 SVT Cobra model.

Saleen Performance did convert a small number of BAB Ford Mustang GTs from 1998-2000.

I just drove home my new hobby. The 1998 Saleen Cobra Mustang convertible S281 in Bright Atlantic Blue #161. The car was my dad's toy and has been garaged for the past few years. Mine now. Thanks Dad!
