Default 1989 FHP located...

A buddy of mine picked this up in north Ga today. It is a 1989 FHP with correct buck tags as well as the other specific items. It does appear to be a lojack car by looking at the roof, anyone know any other history on it?

Good looking car! Does appear to be LoJack equipped that's always a bonus 👍

I aswell looked at that car in Gainesville. However, the seller said it had 100,000 less miles then the autocheck said it should have. Just hope he told your friend the truth.

I purchased this car Saturday and let me start by saying I am NOT an SSP expert but I do own 4 fox bodies and have owned over 70 fox bodies over the past 20+ years,...so like others here, I have seen these cars range from new on the lot to complete basket cases.

I suspect that the auto check information may not be accurate for this car. The interior, engine bay, and undercarriage of the car are VERY clean. Cleaner than my coupe with 78k original miles. Any collisions the car has had in the past were very minor. It has all VIN tags in place except the rear decklid and rear bumper cover. Looking under the rear of the car, there's no mangled metal or anything like that. The original rear metal bumper is still under there with just a small dent in it. Even if the auto check info is correct, it's no biggie to me. The car is in very good condition with many cool ssp original pieces, plus it appears to be a LoJack car....bonus.

Regardless of whether or not auto check is correct, I haven't seen many coupe bodies this decent lately.....much less an ssp that was typically used very hard in service.

I'm elated with the car and glad others passed on it.......I'm from fla originally and have wanted an 89 ssp since..........well, 1989. Lol.

The unit number is 0048.

Thanks Matt.

If anyone has any additional history/details on the car, or observations, feel free to post in here.

The car is rolling on 4 good years currently (good tread but some cracking). The full size spare in the trunk is wearing a bald Kelly ultra h/r 765 radial gt. All 5 tires are 225-60-15. Interesting is that the spare has pencil or paint markings on it that match the paint used to mark the "0048" unit # in the spare tire well. On the tire, it's marked "RR" with the same yellow paint. Not sure what that means, if anything but thought it was interesting.....
