I would contact Jess Albright at GPV/Speedlab for Racecraft production numbers. They hold more detailed information for the RC line than most would believe. Please call and post your findings.

The numbers that were floated around are:
2008 420S: 27 units
2009 420S: 38 units

A few things to keep in mind. The 2008 edition was offered late during the model year. Most (if not all) feature cloth interior with the standard optional Ford equipment found in an S197 Saleen pool chassis Mustang. Meaning IUP, Shaker 500, etc.

The 2009 edition were a tad more broad. The RC was offered in coupe and convertible, with Ford cloth or leather interior, and optional Ford equipment is primarily dictated by what equipment the chassis held. Factory Ford HID lights and glass roofs found their way to conversion into RCs and S281s in 2009.

Dave, no problem. I have tried to do as much research about the Racecraft cars as possible because I get asked lots of questions when I take my 420S to car shows so I try to educate.

The statement I hear most of the time is "I've never seen one of those!"

With a combined total of 89 2008 and 2009 models out there it's no wonder.

If it's a Saleen event the most I have seen together was 3. It's my daily driver and it gets lots of attention. Love it!
