That's why I included a photo of the car coming out of the barn. The owner is planning to do a quick turn-around on getting this one in better shape. He calls it a "budget restoration": detailing the car; repairing/replacing some of the interior; having authentic markings done; and adding the correct light bar. I hope he joins up here and posts his progress.

Danny Jenkins recently posted up on FB about saving a 1986 Nevada Highway Patrol SSP Mustang. The car is certainly worthy of being saved! He shared some pictures with me in order to add the car to the Project -

WOW my interior was exactly like that as I found her in 2010 and cleaned her out and looks exactly like that as "after" condition.

I MAY be a bit biased, but I had to add a photo of this red SSP to its page

Here is the 83rd 84 SSP to be added to our Project -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info205248.htm

It's a CHP car that is part of the second batch of VINs for that particular DSO number. Yes, this single DSO was split into different consecutive batches which are separated by over 1,000 VINs. This example of how Ford grouped the VINs is the reason we do not automatically claim that cars whose VIN is between two confirmed SSP cars, even in consecutive batches, is also a SSP Mustang (it probably is, but we need more corroboration to claim it as such).
