"Much like the Mustang Special Service Package (SSP) of the Fox Body generation became quite famous during its heyday decades ago, the NCSHP notes that it chose to purchase these two-dozen plus 2024 Ford Mustang GT coupes at least partially for nostalgia’s sake. “History and traditions are an important part of our Patrol Family and the use of Mustangs have their beginnings on the SHP in the 80’s and early 90’s,” the department noted."
 






The Mustang patrol cars were well known back in the day. The Iowa Highway Patrol had 4 or 5 Fox chassis T-Birds, all unmarked, in the early '90s. I saw one or 2. I heard about them when I delivered Motorcraft batteries to the dealer that sold the cars. Somewhat surprisingly, it wasn't one of the bigger, well known dealers that sold them.
 






@Fix4Dirt I heard this was happening. I had not heard that it was just for good old times' sake.
 






These are unmarked cars in AZ. They were on display at a car show.
