For Sale: 1984 Ford Mustang in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

A very special edition pony car that has been thoughtfully maintained for nearly four decades is a real treat. And when the full package on this 1984 Ford Mustang SVO is so affordable, you know you have to act quickly if you want it in your garage.

Ford's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) gave us a very cool and distinct Mustang for a very short period in the mid-1980s... and it all started in 1984. The V8 was no longer the only way to go, and in fact, they decided to see if there was a way to offer similar power to their GT model in a lighter, more performance-focused package. The Mustang SVO is instantly recognizable as a special car with features like a distinct front end, offset hood scoop for the turbo's ram air, and dual rear spoilers. A keen eye will notice the headlights were upgraded to a different style. All of these unique elements are present today on this fastback, and they look great against a nice representation of the car's correct Silver Metallic paint. This shows signs of being mostly original, and in fact, the odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage - averaging under 1,200 miles annually. We understand exactly why this would be cherished. When these special SVO cars were new, they were about 50% more than the base price of a GT. Even in its inaugural year, there were only 4,508 made for the USA (and the color gets the rarity down to about 765!) And you can just imagine how few have survived today to look this clean, complete, and correct.

Just like the exterior, the interior shares many premium Mustang GT elements, but has enough unique pieces for the SVO to be all its own. This starts with the exclusive sport bucket seats with added adjustable supports to be ready for a trackday or just all-day comfort. There's a cool SVO three-spoke steering wheel for your left hand and a performance shifter for your right one. Because this came at a premium price, it also came loaded with features. This includes power windows, power locks, electric rear defrost, digital clock, and the original AM/FM/cassette premium stereo. There's even cold air conditioning to keep you feeling as cool as you look in this special 'Stang. It's a true driver's car. That's why you get the full gauge pack, including a large tach and boost gauge to make sure you can see when this turbo motor really catches its breath.

The advantage of getting a car from the SVO team meant it was built by engineers who wanted to make the best performance machine around. That's why this special Mustang is much more than just bolting on a turbo. This 2.3-liter turbocharged and intercooled four-cylinder engine was built to be both smart and tough. This is a computer-controlled unit that was given beefed-up internals to handle even more boost than the engineers were dialing in. Ford liked to tout that this turbo motor was just like a V8, and they were not far off considering the SVO made nearly as much horsepower as its stablemate 5.0 GT. But what made the difference of the SVO was that it had a true European flair on the road. That comes from features like the upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes, revised front suspension, and Koni shocks. Plus, there were other great driving features such as the five-speed manual transmission, versatile 3.45 limited-slip rear end, and power-assisted rack & pinion steering.

This SVO drives with the solid feeling of a well-respected special coupe. The sale even comes with the owner's manual, some maintenance receipts, and other brochures. A rare and affordable performance pony car like this won't stay long in our showroom. Call now!
