Default 1993 SSP Original Owner

Here is my 1993 SSP car. I bought the car brand new (bear with me here...) from Windward Ford in Kailua Hawaii. I am a police officer here and in the Honolulu Police Department we have a program called the subsidized vehicle program. Basically the City and County pays us a monthly subsidy to use our own vehicles (from an approved list of vehicles) as our work/patrol vehicles. Back in the 90's Mustangs, Camaros, Monte Carlo SS were the cool cars we could use. Now it's mostly SUV and Toyota's, times do change. Anyway, back in the beginning of 1993 a fellow officer and close friend of mine worked a deal through Mike Mckenna Windward ford to bring in (originally 10, they did more later) SSP Mustangs for us to buy. I bought mine on 3-31, 1993 and used it as my personal vehicle until I put it into service around 1996. I used it for police work until 2001 and sold it. I recently bought it back and have been working on it ever since. Mine is the rare Royal Blue Metallic color.

Here it is in around 1997/98 with the removable light bar we used.



Here is my original window sticker





and my buck tags



and here is what it looks like now.



I think I saw my vin with a note saying never in service. It was in service, but don't know how to document it the way the HPD does things. I have a build thread on another site which tells the long version of this story

Here is a walkaround video

Thanks

Chris

Chris
Welcome to the fourm!
this has to be One of the most Interesting SSP
Documentation's we have ever seen thank you
for sharing this with us. I am familiar with the
fact that the Hawaii Police can use their own
vehicles as In Service work vehicles
and this car was a great choice!
again thanks for sharing this store with us
and i hope to hear more! Welcome to the site!

Thanks again. Another nice thing is this car has all of the vin stickers still intact and has all of its original panels.. I found little things I did to it 20 years ago. It's pretty cool

When I sold the car I somehow must have known it would come back to me someday because I kept all of the paperwork and owners manual. I remember saying to myself at the time that the "kid" buying the car wasn't going to care about any of this stuff. Here is what I have.









And I even have that plastic key for the wallet
