What Is the Mustang SVO?Last Updated June 9, 2020
The Mustang SVO was a product of the Special Vehicle Operations at Ford and available between 1984 and 1986. This Mustang featured a 2.3 inline 4 cyl engine with an intercooled turbocharger which made it the fastest, most powerful Mustang model available in the early '80s.
For the 2011 model year, the DUB edition Mustang package was available as a special order from dealerships across the US. Upgrades included a Roush body kit, upgraded suspension and DUB logo embroidered on the front headrest.
Steve Saleen founded Saleen Automotive in 1983, originally called Saleen Autosport. Saleen produces modified versions of mass-produced cars, the Mustang being the main contender. From SN95 Mustangs to the S550, Saleen has produced many variants over the past four decades. Some Saleen Mustangs are rarer than others, especially those with lower production numbers.
The EAA Blue Angels Mustang was auctioned off at the 2011 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in support of the organization's Young Eagles program. Raising over $400,000 at auction, this Mustang featured a supercharged 2012 Mustang GT and was capable of producing over 500 horsepower.
Ford celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Mustang in 1984 by bringing back the GT350. The limited production run Mustang featured only cosmetic upgrades such as a darker red interior, special badging and front air dam. Compared with other years the GT350 has been released, it's easy to see why this model doesn't get the same reactions.
