STILL HAS THE ORIGIANL FORD STICKERS ON THE INNER FENDERS. DOOR JAMS AND TRUNK LID. THE MUSTANG IS COMPLETELY STOCK AND A UNMOLESTED CAR. INTERIOR IS ORIGINAL. ORIGINAL BODY PANELS AND NEVER WRECKED. THE CAR RUNS FINE AND IS A DAILY DRIVER FOR ME. I WOULD RATE THE CAR A 7 OUT OF 10. IT IS UNRESTORED ORIGIANAL CONDITION. DRIVE TRAIN---THE ENGINE IS IN GREAT CONDITION AND RUNS FINE. TRANSMISSION SHIFTS OUT FINE. REAR END WORDS GREAT. INTERIOR IS BLUE AND IN GREAT CONDITION. FOR SOME REASON SOMEONE REPLACED THE BLUE SEATS WITH GRAY SEATS. I WOULD BUY BLUE REPLACEMENT SEAT COVERS FOR THEM. OTHER THAN THAT EVEN THE CARPET IS IN GREAT SHAPE. ALL GAUGES AND LIGHTS WORK FINE. HAS THE USUAL BLUE HOSES. 160 MPH SPEED ODOMETER. nbsp;RELOCATED TRUNK RELEASE. LARGE RADIATOR AND OTHER SSP OPTIONS. THE CAR COMES WITH MANUAL WINDOWS AND LOCKS WHICH IS A PLUS FOR A LIGHT WEIGHT COUPE. NO RUST ON CAR. DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE FINE. CAR DRIVES STRAIGHT AND FEELS TIGHT. THE MUSTANG HAS A FEW LITTLE DOOR DINGS AND A SMALL DING ON ROOF. AS STATED ORIGINAL PAINT SO YOU HAVE TO EXPECT SOMETHING. COULD USE TIRES. WINDSHIELD HAS A SMALL CRACK AT THE BOTTOM ;BUT. WILL PASS INSPECTION. JUST A ALL ORIGINAL . UNMODIFIED CAR THAT WOULD BE A EASY RESTORATION OR DAILY DRIVER. MUSTANG COUPES ARE VERY HARD TO FIND AND WITH ONLY 15. 00 SSP CARS MADE THIS WOULD BE EVEN HARDER TO LOCATE. I PREFER ORIGINAL CARS BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU ARE GETTING. NO HIDDEN BONDO. WAVES IN CHEAP PAINT ETC. THAT YOU WOULD FIND ON A CHEAP REBUILD. ANY QUESTIONS CONTACT ME. SELLING AS IS BECAUSE THE CAR IS NOT NEW. WILL ADD MORE PICS. WEATHER WAS BAD. COLOR EXTERIOR IS A LIGHT GRAY. The Ford Mustang SSP was a lightweight police car package based on the Ford Mustang produced between 1982-1993. The car was meant to provide a speedier option for Police departments in lieu of other full sized (and heavier) sedans on the market at the time. The SSP abbreviation means Special Service Package. a special Foxbody Mustang trim made exclusively for law enforcement use. One of the taglines used by Ford to help sell this car was This Ford chases Porsches for a living. [1] The units served a number of uses. and were often customized to suit each law enforcement agency's particular needs. Law enforcement agencies from municipal to government agencies bought nearly 15. 00 examples of these units. Many still exist today. either still in some role of law enforcement. from display cars to DARE cars. or in the hands of collectors and racers. HistoryIn 1982. the California Highway Patrol asked the Ford Motor Company to produce a capable and lightweight police car due to the bulkiness of current police cars like the Ford Fairmont and LTD/Crown Victoria and the problems incurred with Chevrolet Camaros with their camshafts and engine problems at pursuit speeds. Taking the Fox 5. 0 Mustangs in production at the time. Ford produced the Ford Mustang SSP and modified them to suit the needs of the police and law enforcement departments. It is estimated that nearly 15. 00 of these special units were made from 1982 until their discontinuation in 1993 for over 60 law enforcement organizations and government agencies. Their roles ranged from general patrol to pursuit units. with some used in special duties like drug interdiction to academy training units. Several units were specially tasked to help land the Lockheed U2 Spyplane. SpecificationsThe Mustang SSP was essentially a more rugged version of the 5. 0 Mustang. with added features (some standard. some optional) not available to the general public. Some of the additional features were:Engine oil coolerSilicone radiator hoses and aircraft-style clampsAuto transmission fluid cooler130 and 135 amp internally and externally regulated heavy duty alternatorsTwo-piece VASCAR speedometer cableCertified calibrated speedometer 0-160 mph (late 1990-1993)Non-operational courtesy lights (safety feature)Relocated rear deck releaseSingle key locking doors/trunkReinforced floor pansFull size spare tireDepending on which agency bought them. extras like rollcages (installed by Oregon State Police) and power windows (requested by New York State Police) made each SSP unique to their respective departments. The original configuration of the civilian Mustang with its small rear seat and manual transmission were generally considered ill-suited for a law-enforcement vehicle. Many SSPs had automatic transmissions. to free an officers hand from using the manual transmission stick so that they could use the hand for other duties. such as speaking on a radio.
