We know...

98-0001 - was a 1996
98-0002 - was a 1997

...the prototypes were Saleen development vehicles, press trucks, demos.

I owned 98-001 for several years. It was a 1996 chassis as stated. I sold it to a gentleman in Oklahoma about 2 years ago. There were several things that were unique only to that vehicle and a couple things that were unique to 98-002 and 98-003, both on a 1997 chassis. All 3 were white. I almost bought 98-002 about 3 years ago. It has changed hands since. As far as 98-001, I believe I was the 4th owner, it spent it’s life prior to my ownership in Southern CA. I can certainly send you some pictures if you like and would be happy to discuss the XP’s with you if you have any questions.

I would love to see them. As a Explorer enthusiast (on my 7th one) 4th second gen. Owning an XP would be the crown jewel. Until then I want to learn as much as I can about them. I am even working on a 1/25 scale model of one.
