Default Another 1989 Michigan SSP

A 1989 Michigan SP SSP turned up on FB, which is owned by Terry Miller. Terry also owns another Michigan SSP (lucky guy!). He kindly sent me some pics for our Project -

FYI on that sticker on the bumper. The number on that sticker (681_) is the rotations number on the build sheet (6812).

Default 1993 Calypso FHP

The following FHP car was already in the Project using the documentation provided by Jim Young -

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info147248.htm

We knew it was a FHP car, but not the color(s). The photo of the buck tags had recently been shared online, and it appears as though it was a factory-painted Calypso SSP. It is the last FHP car in that consecutive batch of VINs, which continues on. The next VIN is a SSP that went to Winslow, Arizona, which is then followed by a RCMP car. It would have been great to see these cars running down the assembly line one after the other*

* - Yes, I am aware that cars didn't necessary roll down the line in consecutive numbers. It's just a nice visualization.

I haven't posted an update on totals since September 2021, so I thought I would do a quick tally. I didn't know the total when I started this post, but it turned out to be a minor milestone -

1982 --- 30
1983 --- 52
1984 --- 83
1985 -- 277
1986 -- 188
1987 -- 446
1988 -- 433
1989 -- 573
1990 -- 444
1991 -- 237
1992 -- 314
1993 -- 523
------------
. . . 3,600 SSP Mustangs confirmed




...and since we know that the 394 units grouped together in 1982 are all SSP Mustangs built for the CHP, the total is creeping up on 4K SSP Mustangs confirmed in the Project.

Default SSP Eye Candy

The owner of the following 1989 Nevada Highway Patrol SSP Mustang sent me add'l photos of his car. It was already in the Project, but the photos of the car (along with the original blue-rimmed spare in the trunk) add a nice touch to the page -

Default 1987 CT State Police Units

We already had more than several of the 1987 Connecticut State Police SSP's in the Project using agency documentation that had been provided to us. Well, one unit had surfaced in April 2020 that included the VIN label and a Buck Tag, which I just added to its page:

http://www.specialservicemustang.net...info170657.htm


Worth noting is that this car (and the other CTSP units) were originally purchased from Ford through GELCO Leasing and were put into service by CTSP. I updated this car's page (and HF170655) to reflect that.
