Current customer rating: (220 votes) based on
This is a very special car. It is a 1990. FOX 5. 0 Notchback SSP Mustang.
The SSP is the Special Service Package. The SSP program came about due to a need by the United States State and Local authorities for a fast chase vehicle for Traffic stops and drug interdiction. http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Ford_Mustang_SSP
If you are in doubt about the capability of these cars then the fact that they were used as chase cars by the ground crew of the U2 Spy plane tell you how great these cars were. http://jalopnik. com/5537629/the-140+mph-chase-cars-of-the-us-air-force
This particular car is a real State Troopers Patrol car. It was used in the State of Missouri as a Chase car for speeders as well as a drug interdiction vehicle to chase drug importers hauling drugs across state lines. It has been lovingly restored back to original "in service" condition with its roof mounted light bar (As when originally equipped in 1990 the re-istallation of the light bar installation did not involve drilling any holes in the roof so as to make the change back to civilian use easy and paint/bodywork free) Wig wag headlights (where the headlight flash from side to side) Functioning Siren. PA. Police radio. Take Down light. Alley lights. A pillar mounted spot light. Front and Rear facing Radar. 3 Boot Mounted Antennas. Full size Spare. 2 sets of complete magnetic police insignia (removable for when you don't want to attract everyones attention on the road) Handcuffs. Single Key locking doors. ignition and boot. Police grade interior light. Factory reinforced floor pan. Factory reinforced driver seat. Factory reinforced floor pan. remote boot release and I am sure I am forgetting something.
Car also comes with the "Platemaster" registration plate that it ran with in the force. A large book of in-service photos. copies of original order sheets. the tender put out when the force was looking for their new 1990 police cars. the original mechanics service card from the actual state trooper mechanics file. recording the service work done to the car during its tenure with the force.
The roof lights. siren. search light and PA all are functional. It looks amazing with the take down lights on the roof glowing and the flashing lights spinning around. The siren is deafening! it gets EVERYONES attention. The black search light is fantastic. bright as can be and fully controlled by the joystick near the drivers left hand. The police radio lights up but as it is USA spec it does not pick up UK stations. I have the correct plug adapter for the radar unit and I am told it works perfectly.
I bought the car in Georgia. I imported the car from the states. had the changes made to the cars lights that allowed it to pass a UK Mot. Paid the import taxes and duties. Got all the niggles sorted that are present when you buy a used car. The shifter was changed out for a new "Steeda" 5. 0 shifter. The idle air controller was replaced with a ford Motorcraft unit. an optima red top battery was sourced and installed and a few other little things were sorted to make this a pleasurable car to drive.
Why sell? I have a 4 car habit with a 2 car garage. I need the space! I LOVE this car. I have serious reservations about selling but. I have to be practical. I can't buy anything else until one car sells. Also the wife is begging for a vintage MG convertible. Lets face it folks. SWMBO is the boss in these matters. NOW HAVE THE MG. 1972 Roadster. Need the garage space.
This is an unrepeatable deal. Many of these SSP mustangs were wrecked in service (actually the other three twilight blue ones bought by Missouri at the same time as this one in 1990 were destroyed in police chases) others were used and abused as drag race vehicle donors and lets face it. 24 years of use on a fast five speed car will have taken out many of the rest.
Remember. The roof lights come off leaving no holes or paint damage. decals are magnetic vinyl. Drive as a very rare Mustang notchback and enjoy at shows as a super rare SSP REAL state troopers car with all documentation and equipment.
This car looks great. Has a very high quality correct original color (Twilight blue) paint job in its done by a Ford Dealership in the states. Goodyear (correct brand. type and spec speed rated tyres for this car) tyres in excellent shape. non Curbed correct 10 hole alloy wheels. Power Steering and Brakes. Power windows and door locks. AM-FM correct factory radio. Engine is a correct 5. 0L/302 cubic inch Ford remanufactured unit installed by a ford dealer. Correct factory Twin Stainless steel tailpipes exiting under the rear bumper. Upholstery is in great condition. you would never think it was installed in 1990 at the factory! Car sits right and looks amazing. Many of the police mustangs where painted either white or black and white. these are not the most attractive of colors for a member of the public to own and drive. This car is very unique as it was blue from the factory. One of only four bought by the Missouri State patrol in 1990 in this color and the ONLY one remaining as the other three were lost in police chases.
Car has a recent mot and nearly a full years tax. V5 in hand and in my name. Plus a large folder of import documentation. The paperwork includes several in service photos of this exact car back in the day. The original tender put out my the state troopers for purchasing these cars. The specific details of what they were after were all listed. The dealerships offer for these cars and the prices and vin numbers of all the cars that were purchased for 1990. Also the in service records for this car.
Car flew through its last MOT a few months ago before going into storage. The gent at the MOT station said it was as new underneath. I took quite a few photos. email me if you want them. It really is mint underneath. As good as my 2013 Ford daily driver. its that nice! NO bondo. no welding. no patches. no repairs. no rust proofing spray. just clean factory steel.
Ask Any questions you like and I will do my best to Answer them. Car is available for viewing in a lighted and dry garage any evening or weekend.
