This 1986 SVO was being prepared for the Challenge. Mark (Spin_out) did the rust repairs and had the car just about ready for paint, but now he has bigger priorities and needs to sell and I am helping with that. Interior, trim, gas tank and glass were set aside to do the welding work, although I understand the interior was pretty well gone anyhow. Ran before being stored in the garage for the last two years. Still has the SVO wheel spats, headlights and driving lights, which are probably worth most of the asking price, so you could sell them if you choose. Clean title. Another Ford fan needs to put this back together for street, track or Challenge. Just $1500 OBO, in Tampa Bay area.

We are having a car guy garage sale on Saturday, March 2nd from 9 am to 3 pm in Valrico, Florida near Tampa. Over 20 cars for sale, including this one, and a large selection of tools. All the cars need work to be drive-able. I will try to post another ad listing the cars, and one for the tools. Bring your trailer and your cash.

I have photos of the SVO to share, but I will need to keep working on uploading more .  For now, picture a white SVO with most of the trim removed and a bunch of gray primer on all the repaired spots. (Here is one photo to start.)

For more info, PM me with your contact info.

The car is sanded and virtually ready for paint.  It needs 3 spots fixed first.  No welding, just some hammering and body filler.  

Build thread.  Some  photos don't work anymore.

I just read through some of the build thread.  I forgot I welded in sub-frame connectors.  The chassis should be super solid.  

 

When we got it.

Some rust repair.

Sorry, I just wanted to brag that I had a signed poster of the team Gutty car.   :)        OH, and I painted the grill.

I can't believe no one has snapped up a $1500 SVO. Still available this Saturday at Mark's Car Guy Yard Sale.

I'm thinking Mark and I must be related somehow. Every time I was there I wanted to take every vehicle home with me. He has great taste and takes great care of everything.

Looks like so far five cars from my yard sale may be going to The Challenge. 

You'll need to log in to post.
