good question, my stepfather worked for ford aerospace at the time, and one of his company perks was 2 loaner cars, he had the build sheets and would order what ever you could get as he explained it to me the 351 was available only as a police package and he did not know the code, or he would have gotten one. He had the 5.0 I was driving one, before the cops had them, my step dad recieved several tickets, in fact he got pulled over one time by the cop who just wanted to see if that was the new mustang.
As it was explained to me, the cop car version had a 351 with special performace heads, fuel injection and was one bad to the bone muscle car, on the other side of the fence, many old time pot runners who would just out run the older slower cars, were not able to out run any of the new mustangs, in fact, it went the other way ever since.
