    New to me!

    Going tomorrow to look at (and probably buy) 1986 one owner SVO. What are things I need to look for? TIA

    SVO's: 86 1C
    I would start with the typical body first (i.e.- rust, accident damage, etc). From there, see if all the SVO unique items are there and/or in good condition. Check for steering play/ball joints and general suspension bits. How does it run/drive in general. Most mechanical issues can be worked on like any other Mustang, it is the unique bits that can trip you up depending how critical they are from a cosmetic standpoint. The 85-86 models have a tendency to have their spats literally disintegrate over time, but luckily Paul @ SVPU has been supplying fiberglass replacements.
