If Henry got it, it was mangled.

I imagine it is, but given it's never been registered again it was probably totaled out, and if that's the case, there's a reasonable chance it's out at Henry's

This VIN is in a group of 18. This SSP is for sale in MN right now and was thought to have been a never in-service TX car (see ad link below). Add to VIN project?

You are right. I was just passing along what was in the ad (the link does not work now, as the domain has expired). I do remember talking to the owner before this one at a local car show about 6 years ago and he said he thought the car was originally from Georgia.

Thanks for posting it, but we are only putting verified cars in there. However, now that we have it, it may lead to identification of the agency/order in the future.

Bob, thanks for the VIN picture for that car!

To expand on this a bit, we have partial verification on over 50 more cars that are not listed with active links in the VIN Project. These are cars which in terms of documentation may only be a picture of a VIN sticker having a 6-digit DSO. But civilian cars could be ordered with a 6-digit DSO, so we need more information before calling a specific car a SSP. We are holding onto the information for these pending cars to see if we can find add'l documentation at a later date.

And I just added a link to our VIN Project in the first post of this thread

Here is an example of the Standard Marti Reports being helpful to our research. The following car had weak documentation:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info225776.htm

So by getting the Standard Marti Report for the preceeding car in the consecutive VIN range...

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info225775.htm


...we were able to confirm both as SSP's because they have the same DSO. Pretty cool IMO!

We now have solid documentation for over 200 SSP's in our little project. Although we know the VIN range for the 1982 SSP's, our current total only includes those SSP's where we have photos which document those cars in that CUN range.

Over the next couple of weeks, with help from Marti Auto Works and submissions by our members, we should be able to document another 30 or so SSP's.
