This is the classic pony car with a very different attitude. The 1986 Ford Mustang SVO took an American muscle icon and added a dose of energy pumping turbo power for a rare package that will make you realize this is a rare value-priced sleeper.
We all wanted more power in the '80s but we weren't sure if some regulations were going to outlaw our favorite cars. Ford decided one way to approach these unsure times was with a traditional V8, and cool limited edition turbo car that was lighter but made the same power. The guys at Ford's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) developed this limited edition coupe that carried the Mustang's fastback style, but with some very distinctive touches. It's instantly recognizable as a special car with features like a unique front end, offset hood scoop for the turbo's ram air, and dual rear spoilers. All of these unique elements are present today on this fastback, and they look great against the factory-correct 2A Bright Red paint. When these special SVO cars were new, they were about double the price of the base Mustang LX, and so you can understand that this is a rare model with only 3,382 produced in 1986.
Just like the exterior, the interior shares many premium Mustang GT elements, but has enough unique pieces for the SVO to be all its own. It starts with the exclusive sport bucket seats with added adjustable supports, a cool SVO three-spoke steering wheel, and a Hurst short throw shifter. Because this came at a premium price, it also came loaded with features. This includes power windows, power locks, electric rear defrost, digital clock, and provisions for air conditioning. There's even a newer AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary input to play all of your modern tunes. It's a true driver's car. That's why you get the full gauge pack, including large tach to make sure you can see when this turbo motor really catches its breath.
The advantage of getting a car from the SVO team meant it was built by engineers who wanted to make the best performance machine around. That's why this special Mustang is much more than just bolting on a turbo. We believe the 2.3-liter turbocharged, and intercooled, four-cylinder engine is original, and we know it's both smart and tough. This is a computer-controlled unit that was given beefed-up internals to handle even more boost than the engineers were dialing in. Ford liked to tout that this turbo motor was just like a V8, and there were not far off considering this Mustang made as much horsepower as it stablemate 5.0 GT. But what made the difference of the SVO was that it had a true European flair on the road. That comes from features like the four-wheel disc brakes, Koni shocks, McPherson strut front suspension, and quad shock rear end. Plus there were other great driving features such as the Borg Warner five-speed manual transmission, versatile 3.73 rear gears, and power assisted rack & pinion steering,
Complete with original title documentation, this 2nd-owner (who just rescued it out of the original owners garage) SVO remains a lot of fun, and the price for this low batch collectible can't be beat. Call today!!
