All 17 of these cars are GSP plus there is a batch Mick did not list of 27 car prior to these with all but the first two being GSP cars for the total of 42. Those 42 vins are the only ones ordered and used by the GSP for 1989. I'll try to see if anyone knows anyone that may be familair with the Hall county cars as that what I'm fairly certain your is...
Searching for the answer to that appears to be similar to chasing the rabbit down the hole. I'm not too hung up on the agency that used it. You guys have been at this for quite a few years, and most of the passion for these vehicles seems to be State Police agency use. I'm just a wrench turner who happened to fall into owning one. Maybe someone will turn up with the missing link to the Hall County cars. Thanks for shedding some light on the Georgia specific info.

Thanks, Mike. It all makes sense now that I've had a few days to go through this site and see how it's setup. There's a ton of useful information about these cars on here and thousands of hours put into organizing the data. The amount of information in here is impressive.

"State" could have been many other agencies besides GSP (but still State of GA). We have seen all kinds of different variations of what was stamped into the buck tags. Hopefully, one of these cars will surface with a build sheet in it which could shed some more light on the order.

Good deal. VIN project started with a few good ideas, and has turned into something great.

1FABP40E5KF135908 - State of Georgia

I owned this one a few years back. It is believed to be a Cobb Co SSP. But has Georgia on buck tag as well. I have the complete GSP GBI usage records which this and the Hall Co cars were NOT a part of. Somehow when ordered by local agencies these cars evidently got labeled Georgia on buck tags... Could there be another State agency that ordered some SSP's? Possibly we know the DOR ordered one in 84...

Although collectors do tend to drift more towards the Highway Patrol units the local agencies are usually more rare. Sometimes 1- 10 or so units being ordered. Rare does not always mean most sought after but any SSP (at least in my opinion) is more desirable than a standard 40E coupe.... There is still some confusion about a specific state being stamped on a buck tag. But we have evolved in leaps and bounds over the last few years and will continue to do so. The Mods here on .net are very very adement about keeping everything factual current as new info arises. Please be patient with us. We will eventually get to our destination... I'm still amazed at how these cars move about this country sometimes... Again congrats on a very nice looking SSP
