1986 Ford Mustang SVO 2.3L turbo from North America
A rare, purebred, driver's car
Turbo seals began leaking around 110k miles.
Alternator failed around 135k miles.
Front cam seal needed replacing at 130k miles.
Unique car, most people assume it's a 5.0. Car handles like a go-cart, almost no body roll when cornering hard, fair acceleration, but then again, if you just want to go fast in a straight line, the SVO isn't for you, it's designed for road course use and does the job exceptionally well, even by today's standards, in 84-86 (production years) it was far ahead of it's time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
