VEHICLE STORY

This Mustang LX is a rare SSP model originally sold to the California Highway Patrol as an unmarked pursuit vehicle.The SSP model is a favorite of enthusiasts because it is the lightest V8-powered Mustang ever built, at just under 3,000 lbs. There are no power windows, door locks, no sunroof or fog light, and no air conditioning. The engine is a Ford Racing 302/GT40R Crate Motor with aluminum heads, which had less than 500 miles on it at the time I bought the car. The transmission is a T5. The car is being built into a street/track toy with emphasis on handling by the kind people at Maximum Motorsports of San Luis Obispo, CA. The car features a fully independent rear suspension from a 2004 Mustang Cobra modified with a new differential and bushings, front K-member suspension from Maximum's American Iron race car, 13" Cobra Brakes, 295/35ZR18 tires on HRE wheels at all 4 corners, flared fenders, and an interior by BBI Motorsport. Full build sheet to come. Here's video of me testing the new suspension on 9/23/15
