1988 Ford Mustang 5.0 Coupe(factory built police car) - $5000 (Bremerton)

1988 Ford Mustang LX V8 5 speed Coupe. Both buck tags are present. This car was never in police service, it was part of an accidental double order by the Oregon police dept. Damerow Ford in Beaverton Oregon sold the double order off to whom ever would buy them. This car went to Blue cross Blue Shield of Multnomah county Oregon. Others of this double order went to saleen for modifications.

This mustang has 195,000 miles, manual windows, manual mirrors, manual locks and no cruise. Pretty much original with the exception of the front seats, steering wheel and cobra wheels. I have lots of records including the original purchase paperwork and protecto-plate. Runs and drives good but will need some tlc eventually. This is NOT a project car, its titled tabbed insured and driven almost daily. Downfalls are cracked winshield, dent in roof, throw-out bearing howling and when your cruising in 5th you cannot downshift to 4th unless you go to 3rd first, then it slides in 4th with no other issues. I am FIRM on $5000 no if's and's or butts about it!


Call or text 360 62one 51five three

I used my phone's browser to blow up the tags, and the VIN is JF172267. I asked the seller for a pic of the VIN label, but I have enough to add this one to our Project. This looks like a solid car for reasonable money.

That is really cool that all that documentation has stayed with the car through the years.

The seller texted me yesterday that his wife talked him out of selling the car. Hopefully, he will join up here...

This SSP Mustang is not part of the original order of 17 Oregon State Police (OSP) Mustangs 14 of which had grey interiors and were sent to Saleen. The remaining 3 cars from the 1st order were all blue interior. 1 sold off lot to civilian, 1 to local police agency and other not yet account for.

This car (for sale above) is from the second batch (order) of 1988 (OSP) SSP cars ordered by Damerow Ford based upon the serial number. The old "STORY" of there being a "Duplicate" order of 17 cars is BS. It did not happen as the cars from both batch orders are not identical. There certainly was 2 different batches of what appears to be 17 cars. Rest assured Damerow Ford knew exactly what they were doing in making a MISTAKE when ordering the first batch of 17 cars as 14 of the 17 cars 1st order had the wrong interior color that Damerow KNEW the OSP would not accept. Those are the 14 OSP SSP cars sent to Saleen. That my friends is how you get a bigger allotment of cars to do with what you want.

This "Mistake" allowed Damerow Ford to re-order a second batch of OSP SSP Mustangs whose serial numbers start about 30 cars after the first batch. Ironically it appears at this point based upon the known cars that over half the cars from the "second order batch" were sold as retail units off the Damerow lot and were NEVER in-service with the Oregon State Police. That is also true of the first batch of cars as the only unknown car from the first order lot of 17 cars "may" be the only car from that batch to go into service with the OSP.

Now you know!

To add to above since the 5 minute edit rule got me.

Damerow Ford management and their car order guy knew the State of Oregon would not accept an incomplete order to fulfill their contract with only 3 cars from the 1st order meeting their specification with the blue interior. This allowed Damerow Ford to order a second batch of cars which were all correct per the contract with blue interiors. As stated above based upon the known cars in the second batch about 1/2 were sold of the lot to civilians and the other half went to government use or in the case of this car BC/BS.

These FACTS are all based upon the known car serial numbers from the 1st and second batch of 1988 OSP cars ordered by Damerow Ford.

Research completed by members of the SCOA (Saleen Club of America) concerning the 14 1988 OSP Saleen coupes.
