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.
Let me know what you find out, whenever you can. I've never seen anything about the seats down below in the remarks that I can remember (in SSPs only), but maybe it was just a part number mentioned?

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.
I don't think so, Bill. I thought we approached him awhile back on this, and he said that it couldn't be done? Something about the SSP option not being searchable in the database.

Here are just two examples of one trim code on the door tag and a different trim code on the buck tag:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info122743.htm
http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info182331.htm

Not sure why "G" code was on the buck tags though. That code hadn't been used since 1989, and then it was for A/S leather seating (convertibles only), not 'base' cloth seating.

I think I have only seen this alternate trim code between the door tag and buck tag in 1991-93, when LX 5.0L sedans were supposed to have a A/S seating standard.

When I approached him regarding a further breakdown of our car he did indicate to me that some of the agencies with specific color requests ie:Michigan and the two tone cars were extremely difficult to breakdown....we on the other hand have this test car and he was intrigued with its status as well as I was.....I don't believe at this time he's opening up the full areo car info to all years but ya never know....

I think they are all like that (later cars). My '93 FHP is, and there are several others listed in the tech section on the site here that show the same codes.

That's because the paint codes he uses to break them down are blank on special paint cars.

Your car is pretty interesting. Ever find out anything from Ford on what it might have been used for?

That was my understanding as well, so I was surprised to see the SSP determination being made on the elite report for this 93 Calypso car. Maybe something has changed? It could be that the special paint cars may not be searchable for the SSP option. Still, I wonder if it might be worthwhile to send him an email with this elite report attached and ask him about it. You know me; I'm always willing to pursue lost causes in the search for SSP documentation. But I wonder if you would have better success with Kevin since you are a recent customer of his. It's been a while since I have ordered a batch of Marti Reports.

While attending the Woodward Dream cruise this past summer I was able to meet a gentleman whom works within the experimental vehicle dept and he took down a bunch of info on the car as well as pics....he was surprised that Ford had kept it for almost 2 1/2 years before release through the dealer network and that an employee had not bought it prior...he thought it may have been used for marketing purposes or was kept in house incase they needed a car for potential litigation ie: making sure fuel economy stated on window stickers was correct...really odd that it only had 2100 miles on it when sold to Crain Harter Ford in Huntington IN and then to the Huntington county Sherrif's dept...later traded back in on a new 99 Explorer...then it had 36k on the clock...

I just tried calling and reached a staff member whom said "we dont have that information out yet" it's coming but not available yet....
