Old Ford Fox-Body Mustang SSP Hits The Dyno Showing Great Numbers

Before the Mach-E, a number of Mustang police cars were used back in the day.

The Crown Victoria is the most well-known name in police cars in the United States. However, this does not rule out the possibility of government agencies acquiring more powerful law enforcement machinery.

The SSP stands for Special Service Package on the Ford Fox-body Mustang. These Mustangs were manufactured between 1982 and 1993 and were in use at the time. One of the 15,000 units produced is still in fine condition. Today, courtesy of Late Model Restoration on YouTube, we have the unit on the dyno.

How powerful are those Mustang coppers? It still makes 257 horsepower (189 kilowatts) and 294 pound-feet (399 Newton-meters) of torque at the wheels, according to the dyno. Not very healthy these days, but keep in mind that these automobiles were popular in the 1980s and were advertised in an unusual way: “This Ford chases Porsches for a living…”

The California Highway Patrol came up with the concept of a Fox-body Mustang police car. In place of the bulky Fairmont and Crown Victoria, the state police asked Ford to build a lightweight and powerful police car.

The Florida Highway Patrol was the second biggest user of the Mustang SSP, which was the previous life of the unit featured here.

Meanwhile, the Mustang has lately returned to police enforcement in the shape of a crossover.

The Mustang Mach-E electric crossover is what we’re talking about. It was the first electric vehicle to pass Michigan police tests, and the New York Police Department just purchased 100 Mustang Mach-E GT cars. This summer, these silent cops will reach the streets of New York, backed by high-speed charging stations all around the state.
