1993 state patrol car differece?

So my uncle is looking at an ex 1993 florida state patrol fox. We were wondering what the difference is between a regular fox? Motor? Suspension?

Got this little bit from http://www.sspmustang.org/FAQ.htm. There's more info on the site.

Here's a sample list for available options for 1993 from the Ford SSP brochure. Note that while some of these were a standard part of the SSP package, many such as silicone hoses, were optional. This is for 1993 only, depending on year the options could have differed-please refer to the DSO Data section for information by year.

Engine, 5.0 HO V8 with Sequential Multi Port Injection
Forged pistons, roller cam (Hypereutectic pistons 1993)
Engine oil cooler
Aircraft-type Silicone radiator hoses and clamps
5 speed manual or 4 speed AOD transmission
Auto transmission fluid cooler
Brakes, power disc front/drum rear with rotor shields
Stainless steel factory headers
Dual exhaust system w/stainless tips
Fuel tank capacity - 15.4 Gallons
Heavy duty stabilizer bars, front and rear
Full instrumentation with in-dash tachometer
130 Amp heavy duty alternator
2 Piece VASCAR speedometer cable
Certified calibrated Police speedometer 0-160 MPH
Non operational courtesy lights (safety feature)
Steering wheel, leather wrapped
Relocated rear deck release from glovebox
Single key locking doors/trunk
Reinforced floor pans
Full size spare tire
15" X 8" Cast Aluminum Wheels
Anti RFI Bonding straps
Some of the most desirable features of the SSP options stem from their intended police usage. The 135 externally regulated and later 130 amp internally regulated alternator, for example, was required for the draw of strobes, radios, siren, etc. Silicone hoses were added to help withstand pressure under use (although there is debate over their effectiveness), and reinforced floor pans for body rigidity, since breaking seats was a problem. 'Gatorback' directional tires were added for performance handling and oil and transmission coolers were common. The performance locking rear axle, 5.0 HO roller motor, and often a 5 speed tranny made these a natural for race car conversions. As such, it is much more common to see them purchased for this use rather than a police car restoration effort.
