This one is part of a larger batch of VINs, but this one is now confirmed as a FHP -

This one was listed as "ARIZONA" in our Project, based upon the verbiage on the Buck Tag. Additional information surfaced and after discussion on FB, it was determined that this car was highly likely (enough for us to call it this) a SSP ordered for the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs -

An interesting find.

Default 1989 FHP Unmarked

This 1989 unmarked FHP was already listed in our VIN Project, and recently popped up for sale on Bring-A-Trailer, as discussed here:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...ead.php?t=6981


The new BAT listing included many new photos, allowing us to add a couple to the car's page:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info201529.htm


This is not the only 1989 unmarked FHP we have confirmed in the Project. The following SSP is from the same 12-car batch of consecutive VINs -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info201526.htm


And the following one is from a later-batch of 5 consecutive VINs:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info201807.htm


We would have to pull Marti Reports to determine if any of these cars were also equipped with 5-speeds or not.

The second unmarked FHP posted above (KF201526) is also a 5-speed manual, per the TR code "2" on the door tag.

I didn't think to look for that code. Thanks Mick!

Default A 1990 FHP leads to adding 10 more!

Here is a newly-added 1990 FHP having DSO #24-0067:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info159274.htm


As part of the same batch, the next confirmed DSO #24-0067 car is:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info159293.htm


There are 10 VINs in between those two which show a POLICE branded title on the Florida DMV website. In situations where there are consecutive VINs with matching DSO numbers, we have utilized these cars as a start/end point and used the DMV records to add the cars with POLICE branded titles to the Project. In this instance, we added 10 more (suspected) FHP Mustangs to the Project, just like this one:

Default Now THIS one is COOL!

Below is a 1993 GSA car that popped up on FB. We have seen before when paint can lids with the word "POLICE" written on them are attached to the SSP. This 1993 SSP is slightly different:
  • Instead of saying "DSO POLICE" or just "POLICE", this lid says "DSO PI". Could this be the first Police Interceptor Mustang? I am kidding of course, but it is an interesting variation to what we normally see.
  • If you look closely you will see that the word COBRA is also written on this lid.

Default SMPV identified

A photo appeared on FB recently showing a 1989 SMPV (Specially Marked Patrol Vehicle) by the CHP -




The photo shows the license plate, which is the CHP Unit Number for those who do not know. 1989 is one of those years where we have most of the CHP Unit Numbers listed in the VIN Project (thank you Jim Y!). So it was fairly simple to determine the VIN for the SMPV in the photo -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info211270.htm


That's pretty sneaky having a bra with a Mustang logo on the front of the car! I do not think I've seen that before. This SMPV car does not have any spotlights either. Very stealthy! If anyone has a CARFAX account they could check to see if this car is still on the road.

Here's is another 1989 all-white SMPV that was also operated out of the Golden Gate Division office and has the next consecutive CHP Unit Number -
