I received an email from a man who used to own a SSP that is confirmed in our VIN Project. The car had been listed as being unconfirmed agency usage because all we had to confirm it as a SSP was a Marti Report. Ironically, the only reason we had a Marti Report was becuase it is the first VIN after the batch of 1991 GSP cars. It turns out this car was used by Gwinnett County, Georgia, so I revised the page to indicate its unconfirmed usage -

P.S. - we do have an AutoCheck report for this car, as seen here.

The long-time owner of a 1988 New York State Police SSP Mustang posted up on Facebook (at my request) some documentation he received after buying the car 15 years ago -




So we are able to add 4 more 1988 NY SSP Mustangs to the VIN Project. Here is the page for the car that was posted on FB, which includes two pictures from 1999 as purchased, and one current picture with it being turned into a full-blown dragster -

This SSP is a good example of how cars were utilized by civilian owners after coming out of service. At least the documentation survived, allowing us to confirm four more SSPs.

You certainly do not see Wyoming SSPs turn up every day -

The seller was nice enough on the phone. He is asking $6K for the roller (that's not a typo), but would take less if the LS swap parts are not part of the deal. A restored Wyoming SSP would certainly be unique. Here is an in-service shot -

As an FYI, we are closing in on having documented almost 3,100 SSP Mustangs so far.
