1984 Ford Mustang Svo Set The Standard For Today's Performance Revolution! — This is the car that ushered in the computer age for American performance cars! It came stock with electronic fuel injection, turbo charger, intercooler, 5 speed manual transmission, leather interior, fog lamps, spoilers, wings, alloy wheels, high performance, low profile tires and four wheel disc brakes. The SVO could outrun most V-8s and deliver mileage of 20 plus mpg, handle and brake with the best of the day and the looks insured you didn't see yourself coming and going. This car is not the easiest to drive, but it is does reward a driver that masters it with a fun ride. It is the first American car with 4th generation computer controls and sensors that allowed for good mileage, great reliability, great performance and low emissions! The engine came with forged internals to withstand the rigors of turbo charging and mine has 140K miles on it and it still running strong. With minor modifications, it puts out 300 hp at the rear wheels with a 2.3 liter 4 cylinder motor. Did I mention that 2 teenagers have learned to drive using this car? Amazing. So much so that my first new car since I purchased my SVO in 1984 came as another Mustang in 2005!

Damn reliable, cheap parts, easy to mod and finally no one expects it.  

Cons

Flexes like a wet noodle and has the potential to rust.

A 20fter That Most People Dont Think Of. — I've always loved reading about these cars and how Ford tries unusual things at certain times in the past (SHO, Edsel, SHOgun). The car has adjustable KONIs all around, but the rears have to be removed to be adjusted. This is a pain, but they are in an easily accessed area. The motor is a gem, all American pig iron. Can easily boost it to 20psi and no problems(trust me i've tried). Takes easy to mods because it was made in 1983, they didnt have the technology like we have now and the 20+ extra years of people fiddling with them. Plus boosted Ford motors can handle pretty much anything you throw at them, just look at cobra motors, lightening motors, and GT motors.

Pros

Sporty but still practical. This is my sixth Fox body, third T-top car. Great for two person trips with back seat folded down, but gas mileage sucks. Also no good in snow. Easy to DIY maintenance and repairs
.

Cons

Poor fuel economy, poor in snow. Uncomfortable stock seats.

Practical Toy — Sporty, cheap roomy interior for sporst car. T-Tops are more secure than a convertible. I owned a Corvette and the Targa top was a royal pain. T-tops are fast and easy on and off and don't take up much cargo space.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

It's awesome and fairly affordable to build up.

Cons

None really, but it is 26 years old now.

Love It. — Fast, handles great, but needs new rear control arms and some body work. Has leather seats and fairly decent interior. hoping to put a supercharger on it soon. Very fun to take down curvy roads. 325 hp and 28 mg is great. :)

Awesome Car To Own And Drive, A Lot Of Fun, You Need To Know What You Are Doing, And Have Time And $ — I love my car. It was my father's. He bought it when I was about 12. He'd been restoring it up until the day he left it for me, including a brand new engine that the machine shop and himself built, and that he put in. It's now a 306 with 351 heads that are ported and polished with a 3-angle valve-job. Forged crank, COMP Cam, Rhodes lifters, ARP bolts, Holley 750, Offenhauser 360 intake I've yet to put on, along with a set of shorties I'm about to put on. With a stock h-pipe, stock headers, and a Flowmaster 3-chamber 2.5" cat-back system, the car is loud as he||. Custom tranny, 3.55s in the back, the car moves. Oh yeah, custom interior too... all OEM parts from different years (steering column, seats, headliner, dashpad, etc.). I'm in love with the styling of the car because it grew on me watching my Dad love it and work on it for years. I was always a big fan of the '87 - '93 styling, as I still am, but for some reason, I've owned 2 '84s, an '86, and am still considering buying another '84-'86. CrAzY. Low-Pros all around, all black ext. w/no badges. These cars rock. Period. Oh yeah, believe it or not, with the jet setup in my carb., I get 15 mpg. Trust me, I clock it, gas it by the gallon, and I've NEVER run the car out of gas. Repair-wise, the sway-bar rusted off the frame on one side, I would say due to the fact that someone left it sitting outside the garage for a couple years through snow and everything. The performance is great. The major handling problem I've had is the rear end sliding out, even at slow speeds.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Watching "super-cars" get smaller in the rear-view mirror!

Cons

Fast, Fun, And Exciting To Drive! — My fox-body Mustang is used exclusively as a track- day/race car. It has a complete Griggs Racing GR40 World Challenge [non-SLA] suspension. It handles as well as just about anything else on the track... I just need to improve work on the dummy behind the wheel, and a little (okay a lot) more horsepower would be nice! The fun factor with my Mustang is off the charts!
