1986 Ford Mustang SVO Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to list this sharp 1986 Ford Mustang SVO. This red beauty has only 74k miles on its original numbers matching 2.3 liter turbo engine and 5 speed manual transmission.

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. Still ultimately concerned with issues such as fuel consumption and emissions, SVO engineers opted to pass over the venerable 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, fairly high for the time. 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, as the engine was not installed with a knock sensor. 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 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.

This ’86 has been repainted in single stage Dupont Red paint to keep it in show condition. It has also had new tires, battery, radiator and even a 3’ down pipe exhaust installed. This car has been maintained so the next owner could simply hop in and turn the key with ease. This car is a 3 owner and has been with he current owner for the last 15 years. Options on this SVO include; Air conditioning, sunroof, power brakes and steering, power locks and windows, tilt wheel, and even leather interior. What an awesome car!
