American Vintage is more expensive. Alot of strats are like the ones you mentioned though. Red and rosewood is somewhat Mark Knophler-esque though.

21 frets would suggest that it's more likely a vintage model, not a standard

The serial number indicates that it's from 1991

Re: Which Fender Stratocaster model is this?

it canīt be Vintage īcause the serial number doesnīt start with V. It canīt also be Standard (not American Standard) īcause theyīre made in Mexico (at least thatīs what Iīve read). Could it be a reissue?

Good point about the vintage, it cannot be US Standard becuse they came with 22 frets.

I am trying to check whether reissues had regular serials or not...

Sounds like an American Vintage series, '62 with a rosewood fretboard. Need to see the tuners and bridge saddles though to tell, if you look at them and they are a flat piece of metal that bends around on the piece the string rests on, and the tuners are small oval shaped tuners, I'd put money on that is a '62 reissue.

And the American Vintage is worth about twice of an American standard strat. The American standard strats are crap... the necks feel cheaply made like the Japs or the Mexs do and not like the higher end US strats!

I donīt think itīs Vintage, because Vintages have V in front of the serial number.

It has 3-ply pick guard.

Did they ever make American Traditional in red (hope not...)?
