9L = Oxford White

KF136252 is not part of a >3 grouping of V8 notchbacks.

24 on the DSO indicates it was ordered through the Jacksonville, Florida office.

6-digit DSO number indicates it was a special order.

This VIN is a 'single' P40E. The VIN before it was an LX 5.0 hatchback and the VIN after it was an LX (2.3L) hatchback.


We will need the buck tag or other supporting documentation to verify that it is an SSP. Having a special order DSO does not make automatically make it a SSP.

It does not have a police branded title in Florida, which doesn't mean all that much.

Carfax not showing registration from 1989 to 2000. Donít know if that means anything. Seller is checking for buck tags tomorrow, stay tuned!
