I am, but I am collecting less. Need to sell about 10.  Mark you can bring a big truck and take them back to Michigan.

You would be surprised how many owners of Shelby's, Boss's and Performance cars HAVE SVO's too !!

Not sure where you are - I am looking for a 86 Black /cloth SVO that is likely in the Southern area of the US.

PM me any time as to your car / if you used NOS leather or an E & G kit.  (or many used)

Love to know your cars last 3 numbers on the vin

i have owned the black 1 since 1998 and the silver 1 since 1999 . im in south florida. dont know any history on the black 1 other than i bought the car from a guy for 200.00 and had to pulled it out of a dry canal . Lucky for me the only damage was a bent up rt fender  (replaced with a svo ford fender) the leather kit  i bought for the black car was from TMI. very close match to original except for the velcro strip to hold the seat lumbar pump handle.(just removed the old 1 and glued it on the new upholstery)
The silver 1 (w/original leather) was originally purchased by a woman out in california , which the Ford Dealership is no longer in business. Been trying  for awhile to confirm if any SVO came through with the t-tops  or maybe she special order this. because i have compare the t-top hardware and assemblies and they match an other t-top mustang i have found.  thanks  Todd

Working backward there were SVO's that got T Top conversions - If Chalky see this HE is the guy to comment on T Tops!  Still would like to know the last numbers of the black car! Been looking for one from back then.

I have the same problem too. I have 5 right now. One is a non-Hertz sage green car, one is a white Hertz and I have a t-top also.
I keep finding them on Craigslist and can't resist. I'll probably thin out the herd pretty soon though. A man can only do so much at one time.

No, I've had my 4e for about ten years and it is an 85 not an 85.5. It was originally a CT car. It is strange because I also own a 1986 4e GT convertible and it also is a CT car. Maybe northerners really love those green cars. My 11 year old son has laid claim to the 4e SVO. I told him he has to help put it back together and it would be his when he graduates from high school.

Kind of Funny -  I drove to Sturgis SD to find out that Tony W. got that car from Mike in Chicago !

P.S.  Too many cars to keep track of !

Glad to hear that one got saved! Lately it seems to be going the other way... not good.

Get rid of... no, sell...perhaps. What are you needing?
