9. Ford Mustang SSP
Even though Ford never designed or intended the Mustang to be a military vehicle of any kind, during the 1982 to 1993 period it served in the U.S. Air Force. Ford introduced their SSP, or Special Service Package in the early ’80s as a police interceptor vehicle. Those Mustangs were lighter and faster than the regular ones.
Also, they packed them with heavy-duty suspensions and cooling systems. The U.S. Air Force realized that the Mustang SSP could be useful as a chase car for U-2 spy planes to help during landing and take-off procedures. They knew those fast Mustangs were what they needed to run along the side of the airplane while the co-driver communicated with the co-pilot.
