Hemmings Find of the Day: 1986 Mustang SVO

By Dan Strohl


Of all the special edition Mustangs that Ford has been trotting out in the last several years and that recall earlier Mustang variants (California Special, Boss 302, all the Shelbys), I don’t think Ford’s ever going to come up with another SVO-type Mustang, even with all the talk nowadays of installing smaller turbocharged engines in place of larger naturally aspirated engines. So will that make the existing Mustang SVOs, such as this 1986 Ford Mustang SVO for sale on Hemmings.com, more desirable? From the seller’s description:

1986 Ford Mustang SVO 86, black ext, grey int., RARE car Comp, prep, 83 made. 39000 km, canadian one, very nice, new tire, origninal car.

i disagree. they might not end up calling it an SVO but i don’t see why they wont eventually put the ecoboost in the mustang. but alas, that might be the day that the only way you can get a V8 will be if you get a GT500. so i guess, considering how great the new 5.0 is, it might be a while. i just think its weird that you can get a TT 3.7 in a 2.5ton wannabe suv or a WAYYY too fat reincarnation of the SHO but CAN’T get it in their only real performance car. either way the SVO is a fun little car (even tho the front looks too much like a later model escort IMO) and you probably wont ever find one with only 24k on it AND hasn’t been boosted to hell and back.
