I saw this on Ebay today also. The initial person that had posted it on South Jersey Craigslist 2 times lives in Rio Grande/Wildwood NJ. Which is about 2 hours from me. I had intended to contact the seller and look at it on Easter weekend. However it was sold/taken down before I had a chance to contact the seller. The current seller, I believe it is a new owner, lives in Pitman NJ. Which is less than an hour from me.
The car looks like it has new headlights, marker lights and new tires. Old ad said it need a/c work and a heater core. Ebay ad says he di a/c work and replaced the heater core.
I will try and call the guy tomorrow and go look at it this weekend.

maxwedge5281 What kind of information did the seller give you?

Check in the parts section to see if the wheels/tires are from the same guy as the eBay auction.

Default 89 ssp

he was very open about the car. the discussion was very similar to his ebay info....but I did not ask about the roll bar and there was no mention of a transmission change in the car....I believe the ad said something about it being an automatic originally. he did mention buying it from someone in new jersey. seems he has corrected some or most of the problems with the car. no discussion of the drag radials which he has replaced with speed rated tires. he did say the car was loud and no cats on the car. we did discuss the paint which is peeling in places as mentioned in the ad....that seems to be the most glaring problem with the car. he did not have any history of the car from its service in texas???

Did you buy the blue one that was recently for sale? Be sure to create a thread in the Members' Ride section about your new SSP.

Congrats! Will you be taking it to PITS2020? I/we are planning to attend as spectators.

I ran the VIN on CARFAX today. It doesn't show who the initial registered owner was. It does show a title number for the initial owner but who knows if Texas DMV records go back that far.

Would it increase/decrease the value of an SSP Mustang if it was initially sold to the public and never purchased and up fitted with emergency equipment by a law enforcement agency?

So who won it for $12.5k?

No confirmed TX DPS history and it went for that much?

What TX Highway Patrols ran rear roll bars? I donít recall seeing any TX units with a roll bar. Even went into the old TX DPS site linked through this site and thereís no mention of TX units running roll bars... or any pics.
