1988 SSP from KC
 
Hey guys, just wanting to share my new ride, and figure out what I can about it. I bought this on a spurs notice, really not even knowing about the SSP aspect. These are pics the day I bought it. I've cleaned it up since then.

http://i531.photobucket.com/albums/d...ps9a9d8227.jpg Full size spare black 10 hole in the trunk, and a couple studded snow tires on regular 10 holes.
It's got full length subframe connectors, boxed rear control arms, A k-member brace, not sure how much is SSP, and not a lick of rust on the bottom side. The trunk release and gas door popper are located on the driver side, the locks and trunk are keyed the same, various mounts and holes on the dash.

It does look like it had a front end collision at some point, pretty minor, but you can see where the passenger fender was moved to realign it.

Vin # is 1fabp40e5jf196660

Thanks for sharing. That'll be a fun project. And do I see an '84 Saleen also?!

4eyedfoxdriver 02-24-2013 08:47 AM

You see a 84 Saleen clone. We also have another 84.

Does anyopne know what the hand written # and date under the hood is? I have not seen anything explaining this.

That car is the first in a batch of 17 consecutive LX 5.0L coupe VINs (JF196660 through JF196681). One car in that batch is in the VIN project, but the agency has not been confirmed:

So is that any indication of where mine might have come from?
I keep wanting to think it came from Nebraska or Missouri.

Does your SSP have the same DSO number on the driver's door VIN label as the car linked to above (which MAY be a OSP car)? Here is the info that turned up on AutoCheck -

So your car was ordered by a dealer in Washington state. My guess is your car was used by either the WSP or OSP.

Bill do we know the original (1988) destination of all 17 in that batch?

FoxChassis 02-24-2013 01:26 PM

I have no idea where I got the number "17" from in my two posts above but that batch has 22 in it.

1988 model year Missouri SSPs were auto transmissions. I think the VIN numbers are out there on those the MSHP ordered that year too, perhaps by members on this forum.

Thanks very much for that info. The guy I bought it from was deployed when it was purchased by his wife. He said it had been sitting awhile when he got it.

Here's my door, I did not see a DSO....
