this is the information i just got for the production numbers on the probe. i obtained this information directly from ford. the ford customer relationship centers phone number is 1-800-392-3673. they had no problems giving me this information for the probe registry.

most likely but maybe not. not all years started with 100,001. take 1992 for an example. there was only a grand total of 48,907. yet the lowest build number i have in the registry for a 92 probe is 188,354. with the highest build number being 226,405 for that year. now since you do in fact have a 93 and not a 92 here is the info i have there.

low build number that i have for 93 is 109,885. with a high build number of 236,195. so 93 may have started with the build number of 100,001. there is no way to know for sure. but i will keep gathering data.

i know for fact that 1997 probes did not start with a build number of 100,001 due to their limited production numbers and high build numbers.

hope this updated information helps.

**EDIT**

sorry for the bump of such an old thread but i felt that this was the best place to post the information.

there wouldnt be many probes i would truly consider rare. rare would be along the lines of say 5000 or less of that specific trim package.

86 mustang svo = rare
86 mustang lx = not
86 mustang gt - not
97 probe gts = rare
97 probe se = not
97 probe gt = not

now if you want to go into specific options like a tangerine 97 gt with black leather seats with zero power options... now you are starting to talk.

Probes are rare around my area. I've seen a couple, but it's always older people or women driving them. It's a waste of a potentially good probe

i see nothing but 2nd genners around here, most of them beat to piss, however, i have a nice 1st gen, very very rare in the area. theres 4 probes at my HS and mine is by far in the best condish. the other ones are faded beaten up and doggy. and 2 are 2nd gens: a se and a base, and me and the other 1st genner: his beat up rusty GL, and my LX.

Agreed, the GTS is the only Probe I would consider rare. I see many 97 Base, SE and GTs, but its been months since I seen any GTS.

I would not be surprized if they made like 4000(+) Base, 7000(+) SE, 3500(+) GT, and 1500(-) GTS. At least, thats the ratio I tend to see them, with SEs being most commonly seen, and Base coming in second.

I'd love to get an actual breakdown of how many of each model was produced per a given year, and even better the packages...but Im up in the stars on that one probably

Only other rare Probe I can think of is the 1st gen LX models with the digital dashes, but I am not sure on that. I have only come across 3, 2 in person and one on the net.

1996 the base model was discontinued

1997 the se model was discontinued

1997 the base was brought back with gt trim

so technically there are no 97 se's they are base's with gt trim.

so in 96 you had se and gt models. and in 97 you had base, gt, and gts models.

and yes i agree with what you are thinking. its very lame.

**edit**

93 also did not have an se. the se was not introduced until 94.

hmmm i wonder how had it would be to get a title on a locally junked 90 lx with digital dash. i stumbled across it collecting vins for the registry. i thought it was kinda cool but also kinda annoyed because i couldnt get the mileage off of it lol. im not a first gen guy so i didnt know that the digital dashes had even been used until i found that one.

Really? I could of swore there were. I don't have my 93 brochure with me. LOL You just gave me something to do. I'm gonna kick myself if I find out there really were no SEs until 1994

9th position in VIN numbers is a check digit. It is used to validate a vin and ensure its authenticity. The check digit is calculated using the other 16 characters in the VIN.

Wow, I just found this thread and read it from start to end. Now I know why I dont see any Probes around where I live (eastern Pensylvania). Wait another ten years and I`ll bet these cars are ultra rare..

The SE was available in 1993. It appears it wasn't originally an option, but after the Probe GT won Motor Trend's car of the year award, Ford released a revised 1993 sales brochure, in which, the SE is shown and available in the equipment options section.

The original brochure is stamped March 1992, Revised one stamped Jan 1993

right. You had to at least buy the SE to get any meaningful options. Curtacy lamp group,GT ground effects,rear discs, power drivers seat,sunroof,stereo upgrades.etc. I'v only seen 2 probe SE's with the optional rear discs. My 93 SE had the lamp group,GE's,alloys (optional too),power drivers seat,emergency headlight button,seat bottom adjuster knob,power mirrors,2-way adj sunroof.

73,395 91's built for usa use. that was divided out to gl, lx, and gt's. exact number for each trim package was not information that ford kept. and with so few registries on the probe registry we cant even estimate percentages for each trim package. unless we get some of the probes out there registered it will be a forever unknown number.
