1986 Ford Mustang SVO

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to present this very rare Oxford White 1986 Ford Mustang SVO. According to the included Marti Report, this SVO is one of only 91 units that were built with the Competition Prep Package. Alternatively known as the "SVO lightweight edition", these cars were "amenities delete" cars: no power locks, power windows, leather seating, sunroof, or air conditioning; all of which were standard on SVO Mustangs. This Competition Prep SVO Mustang is very well-documented, with Marti Report, SVOCA Certificate, Ford Customer Service Division verification letter, original tank sticker (buck sheet), and SVO Owners Association Certificate of Authenticity. This baby is the real deal and is a rare pony indeed.

During the oil crisis of the 1970's, many muscle cars made drastic changes that have influenced some of the smaller engine yet high HP cars on the road today. From Wikipedia: "Still ultimately concerned with issues such as fuel consumption and emissions, SVO engineers opted to pass over the production 5.0 liter V-8 in lieu of an updated, turbocharged, and stronger version of Ford's 2.3 liter inline four, originally used in the Pinto and Ford Mustang II. The installation of the four-cylinder engine helped with weight distribution, due to the engine being installed perpendicular to, and behind, the front axle, thereby improving handling. Endowing the engine with an advanced, computer-controlled fuel injection system and an intercooled turbocharger system helped push power output to 175 horsepower. In addition, a "fuel grade" switch was added to the dash, allowing the driver to adjust the vehicle's performance level depending on whether premium or standard grade fuel were being used. A factory-installed Hurst shifter was made standard to improve feel and quickness. With fine tuning and the addition of a new water-cooling system, power output rose to 200 horsepower (149 kW) for 1986 (205 horsepower (153 kW) for 439 85.5 SVOs). Also, the 1985 1/2 and 1986 SVO had new "aero" headlights. These headlights were designed for the 1984 model, but regulations would not allow them to be used until the mid-1985 update. The vehicle's standard Borg-Warner five-speed manual transmission was updated then, as well, receiving revised gearing to match the new 3:73 rear end ratio."

SVO Mustangs were aimed at luring entry-level Porsche and BMW buyers to a real American sports car that wasn't priced like a Corvette. Equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, adjustable Koni shocks, exceptional front/rear weight bias, light weight, and a potent high-revving, fuel-injected intercooled 2.3L turbo 4, Road and Track once stated "This may be the best all-around car for the enthusiast driver ever produced by the U.S. (car) Industry." Of course, that was back in the mid-1980's, and things have changed...but, this was one well-respected car back then! Additional features and options on this rare 1986 Ford Mustang SVO for sale include Aluminum Wheels, Manual Lumbar Support, Performance Radial Tires, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat Belts, and Tilt Steering Wheel.
