Brand new Hurst short throw shifter installed along with Hurst shifter bezel.
on the motor when I first got it, I changed the timing belt, waterpump, thermostat, and radiator at not taking a chance to overheat. also did a tune up to include new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, also changed distributor due to the fact that the screws for the cap broke off in the distributor.
I have redone most vacuum lines in the car and bought a manual boost controller for it as well. still have the original electronic boost controller and will go with the car. Also has new electric fan and independent controller for engine temperature. Also, I have upgraded the exhaust system with new mufflers. this was professionally done at a local custom exhaust shop. tailpipes are the originals. No cat due to the fact that this is not required in the state of Louisiana. also I have just put on four brand new Nitto tires that only have a few miles on them. still have nubbies. sunroof has brand new weatherstripping done to it. no leaks! also new stainless retaining clips for the sunroof. The fog
sorry the car did not come with the spats when i purchased it.but I know you can buy fiberglass ones. you just need to find them. fog lights are there with the marchal covers. bulbs may need to be replaced as I have never pulled them off to see if they work.
This is a 1986 SVO that I bought a year and half ago. I bought this car locally from an older gentlmens wife. I am the second owner. I acquired car back in October of 2015. Trim work has been repainted(spoilers,back glass trim). Also had a brand new windshield installed.
March 2006 Inspection sticker, didn’t drive much after that.
I acquired this 1986 Jalapeño Red SVO Mustang on 6-3-1993, 21 years ago.
This Mustang is ready for restoration, has never been wrecked. I recently installed new battery, fuel pump, fuel filter & windshield wiper blades just to get the car running. Car still runs and drives good. Brakes are a little mushy. Shifter rubber bushings are bad.
Before we stopped driving the car: Evergreen stock Turbo valve stem seals, brakes, timing belt, crank seal, cam seal, intermediate shaft seal, tune-up, TFI module, heater core, evaporator coil, A/C compressor clutch. Head lights, K & N filter, shifter knob, head liner. Car was in good shape before we stopped driving. Everything will need to be checked out before it is road worthy.
Car was used for daily driver before purchasing newer vehicle. Was planning on doing restoration, but don’t have the time.
Spats are missing, have upper wing, but needs repairing. Have original leather seats that will be sold with the car. We took out the leather seats because they need re-covering. The car will come with the Cloth seats as seen in the pictures. Insulation under hood is missing. A/C belt is missing also.
