The SVO version was the most expensive Mustang you could buy between 1983 and 1986 and it packed a decent amount of technology for the time. Today's SVO has a little surprise waiting for the next owner -- the independent rear suspension from a later Cobra Mustang.
The live axle that came from the factory wasn't a bad piece of engineering, it was equipped with a limited slip differential and 3.73 gears, Koni adjustable shocks with horizontal rear damper, and pie-plate sized disc brakes...but it isn't as cool as the IRS unit you see here. Considerable fabrication work is needed to shoe-horn one of these into the Fox Mustang, but it should result in a car that handles better if properly setup.
The SVO shunned traditional "no replacement for displacement" mantra with a turbocharged and intercooled Ford Pinto 2.3 liter SOHC inline-4, good for 205
