The Mustang SSP stands for "Special Service Package" and was a special edition Mustang created after a special project for the California Highway Patrol in 1982. In the early 1980s, the CHP reached out to Ford to test the Mustang as a high-speed enforcement vehicle. After a rigorous 18-month test of the 1979 Chevrolet Camaro, the California Highway Patrol chose not to utilize the Camaro as part of their fleet and make the Ford Mustang police car official. Florida was the second state to use the SSP Mustangs, starting in 1983 and continuing through 1993.
Here are the results! This 1989 FHP SSP Fox Body Mustang produced an impressive 257 RWHP at 5000 RPM and 294 RWTQ at 3900 RPM. It's safe to say that this car could catch any criminal in the late 80s!
