Here is a link to the Saleen. Yes, there was one made. Interestingly, I received a comment on my Fotki page from the owner of the actual Saleen Mystic car. I will paste it here. He provided some interesting information and even offered to purchase my model. I also created a 2004 "terminator" mustang from the Cobra kit and I will provide that link also. BTW, the colors of the 96 Cobras was called Mystic and had more of a green/purple hue whereas the 04 Cars were painted in Mystichrome which had more of a blueish hue. Two totally different colors.

Below is the owner's comment:
I stumbled across this site and read through the Saleen Mystic and SVT Mystic discussion form a year ago. While amusing, I thought I would clear a few things up for you guys as I have owned the 1995 Saleen S351R "BASF Mystic Edition" Speedster, #95-0010 for the past 10 years.
In 1995, BASF owned the car and was making the pitch to Ford to implement the technology on it's upcoming DOHC Cobra. As part of the promotion, they worked with Saleen to create the 1995 Saleen S351R "BASF Mystic Edition" Speedster which would be marketed in conjunction with BASF, Saleen, Ford and Dunlop tires. It was unveiled in that years SEMA and NACE shows. It is the first and only car painted with the true Mystic color as conceived by BASF. Some call it Extreme Mystic, some call it Saleen Mystic. We just settled on Extreme Saleen Mystic.
Anyway, they used the car as a rolling billboard to test the publics reaction to Mystic as BASF was pitching the idea to Ford for their new DOHC Cobra. . It went all over the USA and Canada, then given away in a BASF "Horse of a Different Color" sweepstakes. During this period in 1995, BASF also painted two other variants of Mystic ( one 1995 convertible and one 1995 coupe) to Ford to get them to bite and reach their price point. It cost $20k on the Saleen for the one off, but Ford could never charge anywhere near that. After reviewing the cars, Ford decided to take the BASF hue from my car and cut it with simple Black paint, simply to paint more cars with the same technology and meet their ultimate price point. It is as simple as that.
So without disrespect to the SVT employee, he is right and his is wrong. Most people can't remember this far back as it is almost 17 years now. Ford did work directly with BASF on Mystic but it was SVT Mystic, not BASF Mystic, and they are drastically different in the light when side by side. I know as I have seen them side by side with my car. The interesting thing is this is why literature from Ford states 1999 SVT Cobras but 2000 Mystic cars. My car is that one car in that weird number equation.
Anyway, just thought I would shed a little light on the subject. Without the 1995 Saleen, there is a real chance there would have been no SVT Mystic Cobras.
PS If you ever want to sell the 1995 Saleen S351 Mystic Model, I would sure like to buy it from you.
