Tour of GT140T - Part 1
This car was restored completely by myself with the exception of the
installation of the headliner, and the front & rear window. Well over 3,500
hours put into this car in a year and 10 months, so far.

1986 Mustang SVO w/ 3"
Merkur Depot Downpipe and Pypes Violator catback and some minor Maximum
Motorsports goodies. The turbo is a bit
loud due to the DP coming off the turbo
and not knowing it at the time. Wrong grade of bolt was used and didn't
make it past the first day.
As you can hear, I was a bit frustrated at the front straight.
1986 Ford Mustang SVO Turbo
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1986 Ford Mustang SVO. It's powered by the turbocharged and intercooled 2.3 four
cylinder, backed by a five speed manual trans. It has aluminum rims with
five lug hubs and a stacked spoiler out back. These were really nice
handling performance cars for their time. I hope you like taking a look at

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

With only 12,720 summer time miles, this 1986 Mustang SVO is absolutely one of the
finest specialty Mustangs
on the planet.
Averaging only 509 miles per year since it drove off Ed Mullinax Ford's
showroom floor in October of 1986 the car has been treated as if its
Metallic Silver body panels were made of glass. The glossy silver finish
you see here is the cars original paint, and thanks to an accident free 25
year existence this Mustang
still presents factory correct gaps and panel alignment. At the front of
the car, you'll find SVOs unique front clip which houses 1986 exclusive
aero shaped headlights. Behind that front clip, a functional hood scoop
feeds cool air to the turbo charged
engine and all original glass still displays correct factory tint. At the
sides of the car, traditional overwrought 80s body molding was exchanged
for crisp, clean lines that are highlighted by humble SVO front fender
badges, small rear wheel spats and unique body matched quarter window trim.
At the back of the car, a 'bi-plane' rear spoiler sits above a unique rear
bumper cover and striped taillights which let the competition know that
this isn't an everyday Mustang GT.
With the death of the V8 being yelled from roof tops across the country,
SVO engineers opted to pass over Fords storied 302 in lieu of a turbocharged version of Ford's 2.3 liter inline
four cylinder. The SVOs 2.3 liter SOHC I4 utilized a durable cast iron
block, bulletproof cast iron heads and a new for 1986 water cooling system
to produce a stout 8 to 1 compression ratio. The engine was further endowed
with an advanced, computer controlled Bosch electronic fuel injection
system and an intercooled Garrett T3 turbocharger which resulted in 205 horsepower and 240 lb./ft.
of torque. That resulted in a quick for 1986 and brisk for today 6.7 second
0-60 time and a very impressive 140 MPH top speed.
In addition to the advanced engine, SVO included several key suspension and
drivetrain modifications to help increase this cars performance. Inside the
cars unitary steel chassis, a standard Borg Warner T5 5-speed manual
transmission benefits from revised gearing and sends power to a
Traction-Lok Posi-traction rear end with tall 3.73 gears. Around that
drivetrain, a complete Koni suspension system replaces already competent Mustang GT hardware to create
a car that is as good in the turns as it is on the straightaway. At the
front of the car, modified suspension geometry combines with Koni
telescopic gas pressurized shocks, a heavy duty anti roll bar and a 15:1
quick ratio power steering system to make turn in a cinch. Out back, the
cars solid rear axle was fitted with quad Koni gas pressurized shocks,
recalibrated coils, and a heavy duty anti roll bar to ensure the powerful
motor and tall gears bite like a snake. At the corners, new ventilated four
wheel disc brakes that include 11 inch front and 11.25 inch rear rotors sit
behind five lug 16 inch aluminum wheels that wear 225/50/ z-rated BF
Goodrich G-Force radials.
Inside this Mustang, the
all original SVO interior features many luxury options that weren't
normally found on small American coupes. The multi-adjustable Lear sport
seats with hand pump operated lumbar supports feel firm and look great. An
SVO specific leather wrapped tilt steering wheel complements a leather
wrapped shift lever and emergency brake handle. On the euro inspired SVO
specific door panels you'll find controls for the cars power windows and
power door locks. In front of the driver, a straight European looking dash
houses both an 8,000 RPM tachometer and Boost gauge next to controls for the cars
standard air conditioning. Below the dash, a pristine console holds a Hurst
short throw shifter just behind a premium audio system and a trick 'fuel
grade' switch that allows the driver to adjust the cars performance based
on the octane rating of his fuel. Below the steering wheel specially
designed pedals that allow easy heel and toe shifting hang above
well-maintained carpet, and above the seats a tight and crisp headliner
shows no wear at all.
With its low mileage and 100% original equipment, this clean Mustang SVO would be right at home in
any serious Mustang
