09-26-2013, 08:24 AM

I must have missed this one in my regular scans of Kijiji. Poor thing. Not sure if this is a US or Canadian car right now. I did enquire about the upper bi-wing (wants 200. I may enquire about the take off shocks too (are they 84 to 86 interchangeable?). Sorry no VIN to post.

Got an 84 SVO for sale here. Too many projects on the go, gotta thin the herd.

Car had to receive a 93 LX front end swap due to a little fender bender.

Lots of work done recently to make it track ready. Take it to an autocross course or trackday and go play! Makes more power than a 5.0L but more fuel efficient. Great daily driver.

Is that a dealer add on AC vent to the left of the heater controls? Doesnt look like AC on the control either. Does that mean Comp Prep?

(are they 84 to 86 interchangeable?) The mounting points are all the same while the valving is different for different years.

That charge cooler piping installed by Joe The Plumber?

That, and the manual windows... Signs point to "quite possible."

Ha, I have that same stain on the passenger side tunnel up front. In the same spot too.

This car belongs to a member of FEP named "Sentry". He bought it at an auction a couple of years ago from the original owner and started to modify it. I know that the VIN is very low. A very early option delete 84 car. This car is in the SVOCA registry as well. It was sold in Calgary, Alberta new to Barry Weeks I believe. The vin is in the first 100 off the assembly line IIRC. I don't have any ties to the seller and was actually thinking of buying it back when it was for sale when it went to auction.

That's cool info. Thanks! I wouldn't have known that. I haven't been back on the scene again that long.

FYI" That early did not come with elec windows or locks stock - each item had to be ordered/added. MY car had six opitions, iirc (build date 11/83): Elec door locks, elec windows, floor mats, premium radio, lighting package, & California emissions (warranty). All those items were additional cost options. My car also had slapper bars originally. THe change over to quad shocks started in mid-Dec 1983.

Some time later, perhaps mid-year?, they added Pwr lock and windows as standard equipment and you could "special order" them without those features.
