Hi Dal,
Think this is wrong!
"Panther Black, Leather interior (Midnight Black Leather front seats (standard seats covered in leather), door cards (perforated vinyl insert), Electrically operated and heated door mirrors, rear seats and rear side panels) Air conditioning, Scuff plates, Front slip mats and F1 alloy wheels.
Should be something like:
"Panther Black paint. Midnight Black interior - front and rear standard seats covered in leather, door cards (with perforated vinyl inserts), and rear side panels. Electrically operated and heated door mirrors, Air conditioning, Scuff plates, Front slip mats and F1 alloy wheels.

Probably only if a dealer was requested to replace the electronic ones with manual ones?

This is really odd because the leccy ones are supposed to be standard for all 'Black' SE's - why would the 1st owners request manual ones?? Lol

I was worried I had a 'Black' knock off. (Ordinary 1.7 Puma with the leather seats from a donor car)

So my new Puma is indeed a Black SE less heated windscreen and less heated electric mirrors.

Still don't understand why the original owner would pass up both of those options in this country!! Lmao!!

Would it be interesting to include special editions from other countries as well?
I for instance, have a Ford Puma Century, which only came in Amparo blue, with leather Recaro seats, upgraded sound system and 9-spoke wheels (which are pretty rare here in The Netherlands). There were only 118 ever delivered here, from 2000-2001.
We also had the 'sports edition', of which 69 were delivered here, and they were simply the cars that would become the German FRP, but turned into normal Puma's with leather interior en 9-spoke alloys.

As always, some of the information available on this site and from the various contributors is quite amazing, so, among the collective brains on here I wondered if someone could answer a query...
I know that the FRPs are individually numbered, but understand that the Millies were, too (although I'm a lot less sure of that...). Given that, is there a way (maybe by Chassis Number) to determine out the 1000 Thunders (of each colour) which one it is? I'm thinking probably not, but it would be nice to see which ones have survived if so.

Mike, no Thunders weren't numbered. Also the Millennium edition was only number at the dealership so not even all of these were numbered. Finally even FRPs weren't numbered in order so you could find for example that 472 was actually an earlier build than say 201.

In closing.. the numbering was a nice touch but it doesn't mean a whole lot with regard their order.

Alfie, CD player and heated screens were nothing to do with special editions, they were either standard or options.

Thanks, red. Good info as always - and I never realised that the FRP's were numbered that way. Bizarre... Every day's a school-day! :-)

Not from Ford UK from the factory - but there are a few dealer special editions about so entirely possible. Have you got any information on them?

No "schmacher edition" at all from what I remember, there was a Silverstone related car which might be what you're thinking of?.

This has been brought up a few times over the years. There were a handful of Silverstone pace cars as I understand it which had red embroidered leather seats such as:
