1985.5 FORD MUSTANG SVO, TURBO

RARE, ONLY 436 PRODUCED

42K ORIGINAL MILES

Sold

 

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner purchased this car in 2007 to add to his collection of 1980s and 1990s muscle cars. His tastes have changed and we have helped him sell a dozen cars from the collection. This is the 13th and there are only a few left. It appears he is only the 3rd owner of this SVO and included are all the new car delivery documents, including every service manual available for the car. The body is in great shape with no rusted panels as it was rust-proofed when new. New brakes and hatch struts were installed within the last couple years. It has a few issues, but nothing that can not be addressed by a new owner with some time and a little mechanical aptitude.

MARQUE HISTORY: The SVO Mustang was Ford’s attempt to create more of a road racer than a drag racer, and Euro GT than a main street tire burner. Only 9,844 were produced between 1984 and 1986. Road&Track called it “perhaps the best all-round car for the enthusiast driver ever produced by the U.S. industry.” It was Ford’s attempt to conquer the European sports car market. The 1985 ½ model had the highest HP (205) and lowest production (439). In 1985 the sticker price was $16,000 ($6,000 more than the 5.0L Mustang)!

VEHICLE CONDITION

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles, but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace, sometime, something will need repaired!
