It is less than 1 hr from me if someone wanted me to go look at it for them. I would go look for myself but I would prefer to stay married.

Looks good, but I heard the 86 SVO is more desireable.

86 is more desirable than the lower horsepower 84, but the 85 1/2 at 205 horse is just just tons more fun, rarer and far more desirable. Loved my 85 1/2!!

Oh yes I remember it well !!!
My buddy had that exact car new in 84. I especially recall the early am speeding ticket clocking me at 100 plus after a nite of clubing......
Luckily, I only got a summons for 90mph !!! I know I was slowing down considerably when he clicked me with radar.
Thanks, Jay

I have an 85 and they are a fun car. When new they cost way more than a v-8 GT so did not sell too good. They do handle great.
If anyone is serious about really wanting one go to the Atlanta cl and do a search. I was on there a week or so ago and there were a couple low mile originals with good price. There was another that had two extra engines and and extra T-5 for less than this car but not as nice.
The 84 did not have the extra turbo cooling added in 85.5 and 86 so they did not last as long. I added the extra cooling to my 85 when I changed the turbo.
That is a sickening feeling when you hear that turbo blade start singing against the housing. Once it touches it is done.
Only think I did not like was the leather seats cold in winter hot in summer. I hate leather would rather have cloth any day.
For those that have one there were Ford disc brake pads on eBay not too long ago for $10.00 a set for fronts. I got two sets. They were the same as some Lincoln models. The lower control arms are the forged ones used on Lincoln also not stamped like regular Mustang was. I recall they pulled .9 g on skid pad.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I know we had discussed the SVO earlier when 73429mach was looking for some seats. Am trying not to cause Eric too much grief, as I believe he is still Jonesin' for one!
They were all great cars, but the 85 1/2 and 86 were really at the top of their game. These models had larger or upgraded camshaft, turbo, fuel injectors, intercooler, and intake. They also received true dual exhaust and quad rear shocks which replaced the slapper style traction bars. They also were the first fox Mustang to receive 5 lug wheels and the first production Mustang to have 4 wheel disc brakes. There was a fuel calibration switch on the console that allowed you to select between a standard and premium setting so you can run a EEC IV limited 15 PSI boost.
The Competition Prep package deleted the lamp group, trunk lamp, electric windows, power locks, radio (replaced with a delete plate and an antenna plug for the fender) and A/C.
Unfortunately at the time these cars were being built your manhood was still being measured by your red light to red light performance. They could do everything better than just about anything out there, just couldn't get it done at the red light against a V8 Mustang or Camaro. One of our shop techs had just performed a tune up on a 86 SVO and told me that my 85 GT would outrun it, but for me not to miss a gear or it would be all over for me!
The biggest disadvantage to the SVO was a much higher list price when compared to the GT's. It's really kind of sad that a lot of people will never know what an amazing car this was!

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
