Some of the cars in the earlier years with plain paint jobs may have only had one tag.

Well Iíll take that as a confirmation my 1985 DPS SSP has One tag I was told by previous owner that it only came with one and it has the special service police info on tag the gentleman mentioned that some early SSPís came with just one. I have all the records of the SSP down to the purchase from auction for 300.00 bucks.

Have you ordered a Marti Report yet? That will confirm that the car had the SSP option.

If it has the "DSO" buck tag present with the special order number and special paint instructions (if it was a special paint unit), and that is the only tag present, the other one is missing. ALL cars had a buck tag with the last six of the VIN, the body code, the engine code, etc. Some of the early (pre-1985) non-special paint SSPs had only one buck tag and no "DSO" buck tag.

The one buck tag you've shown is what I call the "DSO" buck tag because it has the district sales office (DSO) and dealer special order (also DSO) numbers on it, as well as the agency and special paint instructions. Your other tag, which all SSP and non-SSP cars had, with the partial VIN, body code, engine code, rotations number, etc on it is missing. So yes, the car did have two buck tags. (If it were a Canadian SSP it would have had three buck tags...a third one for the "Road Abrasion" option.)
