Default SCHP #2-12-183 Update

SCHP #2-12-183 recently changed hands. The car had been posted up in 2019, as seen here:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...ead.php?t=6854

I've been chatting with the new owner, who is really into the new car and its history. I encouraged him to join up here. Although the car was already listed in our Project, he sent me the VIN label which I added to the car's page -

Default 1988 CSP

This 1988 Colorado State Patrol SSP popped up for sale on FB. A tree fell on it during a recent storm, causing damage to the passenger side 1/4 panel and roof. The car is a roller and isn't too far gone to be saved. The owner is struggling whether to fix it, sell it, or part it out. Regardless, it will be preserved in our Project -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info220636.htm

For fun, I decided to count the VINs in each batch of confirmed CSP Mustangs, as follows:

1983 - 06 VINs
1985 - 08
1986 - 20
1988 - 23
1989 - 26
1990 - 19
-----------
. . . 102 Est'd Colorado State Patrol SSP Mustangs


Keep in mind that it is possible and likely that not every VIN in each batch was ordered by the CSP. Also, it is entirely possible that we do not know of all VIN batches ordered by the CSP. The above number is only an estimate.

NOTE: This method can be used to estimate how many units were ordered by other agencies as well. Look for future posts on this subject.

Default 1993 Fruitland Park, Florida PD

This 1993 SSP was recently listed for sale. The seller claims it was purchased originally by the police department in Fruitland Park, FL -

The seller's wife reportedly did not like the car and had it painted blue. It looks to be a solid project for the new owner.

Here's a 1988 FHP -

The owner has had the car almost 20 years and contacted me on FB to ask about it.

1987 - 10

. . . .82 Est'd Nevada Hwy Patrol SSP Mustangs


Most of the confirmed 1988 NHP cars are part of a much larger batch of VINs, so I only counted the immediate VINs that are part of the three confirmed cars. There is another confirmed 1988 NHP car ordered/produced later that is part of a larger batch of VINs. So it is highly probable that there were more than 8 units ordered that year (someone with CARFAX access could run those VINs to see which ones have ties to Nevada in their title history). Also, the same disclaimers listed for the estimate on the Colorado cars apply here as well - it's only an estimate. But it is fun to consider.

Default 1991 CHP #E__8998

For whatever reason, 1991 CHP Mustangs are fairly uncommon in the SSP hobby despite there having been 230 supposedly ordered that year. The car below is the 7th one added to the Project, but 2 of those were added through use of Marti Reports alone. This one popped up for sale on FB -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info192842.htm

The only other 1991 CHP with confirmation of its unit number is actually one digit off of this car (#E__8997), as seen here. Can someone identify what would have been the 2-digit prefix number for the E-plates on 1991 CHP Mustangs?

One of our long-time members came through! Mick C. aka mac88chp confirmed that the 1991 CHP Mustangs had an E-plate prefix of 38, so the two 91's in the Project have been updated. Thanks Mike!

This 1988 CHP car showed up for sale on FB. The seller had a photo of the original Permit To Transfer Legal Ownership of State Vehicle, which names the CHP and identifies the VIN and Unit Number. I have not seen that type of documentation before.

As much as people complain about Facebook, it has surfaced countless SSP photos and info, due to accessibility/ widespread adoption.
