The Mustang SVO Owners of Southern California is an an independent network serving the owners and enthusiasts of the Ford Mustang SVO, as well as the several other high-technology, turbocharged 2.3-liter Ford-powered products -- the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe, Mustang GT Turbo, and the Ford of Germany-built Merkur XR4Ti. Mustang SVO owners are noted for their appreciation of high-technology, limited-production, race-bred driving machines.
Developed by Ford's Special Vehicle Operations in the early 1980s, the Mustang SVO was an icon of Ford's commitment to producing a new generation of high-performance automobiles and racing products, as well as a renewed involvement in motorsports after abandoning them in the early 1970s. There were only 9,844 Mustang SVOs to roll-off the assembly line during their production from 1984-86, and today few people know that they were ever produced.
Here, on the World Wide Web, we share and strengthen our appreciation of this limited-production Ford Mustang SVO and pay tribute to one of the most significant eras in Mustang history, and support the owners and enthusiasts not only in Southern California, but the World.
