This next car was inspired by DT tipper BP who wrote: Aren’t these on the $ way up now? SVO Mustang and included a link to an 86 SVO that was offered for $13,500 on Hemmings, and these two articles on Hemmings and Hagerty talking about the future collectability and current market of the SVO. Personally I think that $13,500 is looney toons money for that red SVO, so I’ll counter with this 1984 Ford Mustang SVO offered for $5,800 in Orange County, CA via craigslist.
I’m not an expert on the SVO Mustang market, but I owned one a few years ago and have a few parts lingering in my garage (see that little fiberglass piece in front of the rear wheel…that’s called a spat…). Anyway, I don’t think the SVO is going to be the next 60s Cobra, but it’ll be worth something once people forget the terrible turbo lag and the fact that you have to qualify every statement about it. The SVO is fast…for a car with a 2.3 liter engine. The SVO handles well…for something domestic from the 80s. Etc.
