Classifind Cut 36: 1984 Ford Mustang SVO – Sold?

Oct 2020 | Classifind Cut, Malaise Monday

November 30th Update: We just confirmed the Craigslist ad for this ride expired and with no replacement listing found, we’re assuming this car sold.  This one may have got away, but if you have your heart set on something similar, email us the details of what you’re looking for or call Rudy directly at (908)295-7330

History has a way of repeating itself. In the case of Ford, today’s Mustang offers buyers the choice of a very potent V8 with low-end grunt or a very sophisticated turbocharged inline-four providing high-end horsepower.  In 1984, Ford offered Mustang buyers a similar choice with either a 5.0L powered GT or the European-inspired 2.3 Liter SVO.  The high sticker price of the SVO limited buyers, so coming across an example such as the one originally listed in October 2020 on Craigslist in New Castle, Delaware with an asking price of $4,500 is a rare sight today.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1984 Mustang SVO

Runs but needs attention
$4,500 or B/O
