Default 1983 FHP Progress

The '83 FHP is finally out of the car hole and on it's way to the bodyshop. The engine bay, underside of the hood, and steel wheels will be painted, along with a few other odds and ends. Then in a few weeks, it is off to NC for the drivetrain. (2nd picture is '83 donor car)

With the funds I have available, I will be finishing the car along the lines it was started, as a nice driver.

I am still looking for a good to very nice set of body moldings, headlight bezels, and an L emblem. If anyone has a line on any of these parts please pm me.

Jon

That's awesome. Despite being a big agency, I can't imagine there are a bunch of 83 FHP's around. I didn't look, but I assume that 83 was the first year Florida bought SSP's?

To everyone out there, wherever you are. Remember, the light at the end of the tunnel may be the police chasing you down in their own Mustang!

The regular production '82 SSPs were a CHP exclusive so yes, the FHP and all other agencies had to wait until '83 for their orders.

Can't wait to see this one come together. The '83 and '84s are my favorite four-eyes.

Looking forward to your arrival Jon!! The donor car is in pre-op being prepped for the procedure at this very moment. So far it's vitals are good.

It will be cool to get our 83 SSPs together for a photoshoot. Maybe we can start a new thread to document the operation.
