That's an '83, Matt!

What's the story (if you know)?

Looks like I'll need to make a trip to San Antonio at some point and take some pics of the interior. I think that DPS drilled holes in the console surround for the switches to control the e-lights, and this car could help verify that.

Thanks for posting the pics.

No story that I know... My brother was down by the museum that he had no idea existed and this car is outside on a side lot of back lot. I imagine if you go and ask they might tell you what and maybe let you check it out.

Thumbs up

Don't wait too long guys. Those things have a way of being there one day and gone the next. It would be sad to go and have the folks respond "What Mustang Patrol Car"???

That is a real piece of history and could yield all kinds of answers about configuration issues for the Texas guys. Good Luck!!!!

Sure if I were back in town for some length of time that would be cool.

I don't mind taking Matt's place Mike. We can hop in the 89 SSP. It needs a good road trip.

Ok, Tom, sounds good to me.

Matt,

For some reason...I forgot about your being out of town so much lately. I think I need more sleep.
