I'm guessing it's of the 18 calypso coupe with blk int it's the only SSP because the other 2 SSP calypso coupes have gray??? So how would you find out how many of the 93 calypso coupes were SSP's???

Great question.....to date I know of the two cars you mentioned as well as possibly 3....2 for sure FHP unmarked cars...all to the best of my knowledge had Opal interiors and crank windows. ...as for how many of the 93 were SSP versions I'm thinking not too many..

Unfortunately, a lot of the later SSPs in that data incorrectly show the articulated sport seats. I'm guessing that when those seats became standard (with the 5.0 engine), there was never a way to tell when running the reports. We saw the same issue with the earlier cars that have blank paint codes.

Articulated Sport seats were standard in the LX 5.0L coupe starting in 1991. That is why you will always see the A/S code on the door tag, and on Marti reports on the door tag image and in the equipment list.

For special orders, where the build sheet remarks would indicate that the 'base' seats shall be installed, the buck tag will have the non-A/S seat code. In this case the door tag would have a "DJ" (A/S black cloth & vinyl) seat code and the buck tag would have an "FJ" ('base' black cloth) seat code.

On this (elite) report, the stat for the AOD transmission comes first. Therefore, all stats following that one stat are for AOD-equipped cars only. In other words, this 1993 is 1 of 1 with PM paint, DJ (actually FJ) trim, and AOD. There could be one or more 1993 SSP(s) out there with PM/DJ(FJ) and T-5.

There are five (so far) known PM paint SSPs for 1993. The first one (this car) is the only one out of the five that has black interior.

Have you seen build sheets with these remarks in them? I can't remember seeing anything like that. I'm curious as to what the GSA builds say, but I can't remember seeing one of those, either.

Build sheets from aero cars are very scarce. I don't recall ever seeing one from a 1991-93 but I would have to check later to be sure if I have any saved.

I am just going off of other (four-eyed) special order sheets that I have seen, from acsMcLarens, Saleens, SSPs, etc., where the remarks mention replacing the standard seats with other seats.

On the basis of this report, would I be correct in assuming that Kevin Marti has the ability to separate and quantify the number of cars that came with the SSP option? If so, could anyone offer to pay Marti Auto Works to research the number of 5.0L notchbacks cars that came with the SSP option for each year? Are we really now able to determine how many SSP Mustangs were built? If so, then one of us with a good relationship with Kevin Marti needs to contact him ASAP.
