Great work guys! I'm in contact with another MN State Patrol Mustang owner here in MN (apparently some of the 20 MN SSPs were given by the State of MN to County Law Enforcement Departments when new and this guy has acquired and restored one of them) and I may soon have his VIN and other information to pass along.

Got the VIN today, and it is from a later order of 3 consecutive SSPs (not the consecutive 20). The owner is going to talk to the Sheriffs Department about how they acquired the SSP. The owner told me he thought there were 2 other ones that had been issued by the state in a similar fashion. He also told me that it had silver 10-holes in service, but no mud flaps (unlike all the photos of the MN SSPs) and that the trunk release was NOT in the glovebox (like the other known 20 MN SSPs), but to the left of the steering wheel on the lower dash. I asked him to get me a photo of the buck tags and door sticker when he gets the car out of storage in the spring. All I have for now is the VIN: 1FAP40E6KF214357

Sweet! I'll be happy to add the VIN/buck pictures to our project.

So do you think it was a MN State Patrol SSP or a separate Sherriff Dept purchase of some sort?

When he gave me the VIN today he said that when he acquired the SSP at auction in 2000 the Sheriff had told him that there were a couple of more SSPs that the MN State Patrol had released to other MN law enforcement agencies at the same time. I ran the VIN here and it is the middle 1 in a group of three listed. The owner is now going back to talk to the Sheriff to get some more info for me. I love a good mystery!

Also, I found out today (talked to Jeremy/bluesspcoupe) that he sold his MN SSP last October to a collector I know here in the Twin Cities and he will be restoring it back to stock (I'm waiting on a call from him to get more details). This thread (http://www.specialservicemustang.net...=minnesota+ssp) had images of the buck tags, but I don't know if the VIN was submitted. The thread talks about the build date and it is the same as my 2 MN SSPs.

I just looked at that thread again and the subtitle is "MN#681013" which is the Property of the State of Minnesota barcode sticker and that number is 1 number before my latest MN SSP barcode sticker on the driver's door A-pillar (my other MN SSP had the sticker removed when it was repainted in 1997).
http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info193410.htm
What are the odds of that? (I guess 1 in 20)

So a quick question, when Unit #s are known, why don't we want to post them on the VIN project? It seems like it would be good to know if particular units are accounted for and help to identify numbering patterns... Just wondering?
