A very special edition pony car that has been kept in survivor condition for over three decades is a real treat. And when the full package on this well-documented 1985 Ford Mustang SVO is so affordable, you know you have to act quickly if you want it in your garage.

Ford's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) gave us a very cool and distinct mustang for a very short period in the mid-1980s. The V8 was no longer the only way to go, and in fact, they decided to see if there was a way to offer a similar power to their GT model in a lighter, more performance-focused package. The Mustang SVO is instantly recognizable as a special car with features like a distinct 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 a nice representation of the car's original 1B Medium Charcoal Metallic paint. When these special SVO cars were new, they were about 50% more than the base price of a GT, and so you can understand that this is a rare model with only 1,954 produced in 1985.

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 to be ready for a trackday or just all-day comfort. There's a cool SVO three-spoke steering wheel for your left hand, and a performance shifter for your right one. 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 the original AM/FM/cassette premium stereo. There's even ice-cold air conditioning to keep you feeling as cool as you look in this special 'Stang. It's a true driver's car. That's why you get the full gauge pack, including large tach and boost gauge 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. You're looking at the original 2.3-liter turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder engine that was built to be 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. Not only are there only 17,900 miles on the whole car, but also features like a new fan and alternator only add to its durability. Ford liked to tout that this turbo motor was just like a V8, and there were not far off considering the SVO made nearly 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 upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes, revised front suspension, and quad shock rear. Plus there were other great driving features such as the five-speed manual transmission, versatile 3.73 limited slip rear end, and power assisted rack & pinion steering.

You get to pour over a ton of paperwork that comes with this sale, including the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, and Marti Report. But if you need to understand how nice a survivor this is, all you have to do is see how clean it looks in the undercarriage shots. A rare and affordable performance pony car like this won't stay long in our showroom. Call today!!!
