From 1982-1993, Ford offered a Special Service Package for law enforcement agencies. The California Highway Patrol purchased 400 notchback models to use. These “Special Service Package” or SSP Mustangs were based on the GT package but included a more powerful automatic transmission so that officers’ hands could be free. The lightweight police car package was popular. The units served a number of uses, and were often customized to suit each law enforcement agency’s particular needs. This particular 1982 Ford Mustang SSP Fox body 5.0 was number 56 out of 407 and was used to chased Porsches back in the day!
