    You should be able to post the excel as an atachment for those that would rather see it that way.

    I'll move this to the FAQ section later...

    It just kinda evolved over time. The more I thought there were no SVO magazine artiles, the more I found and got bored and made a list one day.

    I'll update this one as I come across stuff in the future.

    Wow, that is one heck of a list! I was just doing a search to see if anyone had mentioned the latest issue ( Nov. 05 ) of Mustang Enthusiast about the Dedeluk's 85.5 and you've already added it. Thanks for all your efforts! Good job Lon!

    SVO History book....

    Among this list is there a book that could be bought that has a COMPLETE history of the SVO's.

    I am very close to purchasing an 86.

    I think a stand alone book was written by a man in Canada, but I'm not sure if it ever actualy made it to print and distribution.

    There are chapters devoted to SVOs in several Mustang history books. Read together, these pretty much tell the production story of the car. Also there was recently a overveiw article in Mustang Enthusiest that was very thorough with model year differences and also a SVT insider column that gave a good, concise production history of the car and of the SVO group.
