Alright, we'll admit it, Fox body Mustangs aren't really in our wheelhouse when it comes to the tire market. Some of the drag racing guys might run our Phoenix brand slicks, but for the most part, we're a bit out of the loop. However, the SVO Club of America heard about our place and wanted to come take a look during their big meet right here in Chattanooga, Tennessee. So we invited the group to take a tour, and grabbed a few photos while they were here. [caption id="attachment_2220" align="alignleft" width="500" caption="See that off-center hood scoop?

Here's how to tell the difference between a regular Fox Body Mustang and an SVO. When the designers decided on the SVO concept it was drastically different than the standard 'Stang. These cars were made from '84 to '86 and had a different engine combination, different hood, different seats, different headlights, different spoiler, different lug pattern and different wheels from a regular Mustang. Even with performance in mind, Ford did not simply stick a hopped up 5.0-liter V8 under the hood. They chose the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine from the Mustang's engine lineup and outfitted it with a turbocharger and an air-to-air intercooler, which allowed the tiny four banger to as much horsepower than the highly-acclaimed 5.0 HO. 200hp, light weight and good fuel economy...what else could you ask for?

This SVO came all the way from Canada!"]Corky Coker[/caption] The off-center hood scoop is functional and breathes fresh air into the intercooler, while the five-lug hubs are fit with 16-inch wheels and wider tires than standard Mustangs. In the three years of production, less than 10,000 Mustang SVO's were produced, making them a rare beast these days. We had 14 in our parking lot this afternoon, and members of the club said there should be more at the official meet tomorrow, which is located at the Chattanooga Choo Choo from 9am to 4pm EST. They will also be holding an Autocross competition, hosted by the Chattanooga Region SCCA. We're glad they came by and even though they don't have our tires, we can still appreciate a very cool and very rare car!
