    Default I'm tempted to buy an SVO. Is it a comp prep?

    FoxChassis, I'm looking at an 85 SVO and I got the VIN from the seller.

    Can you decode it for me?? It's all I have for now. Unfortunately, it looks like there may be a dealer installed (?) sunroof in it.

    Thanks a bunch!

    The Vin won't tell you much more than the body style, engine, consecutive unit number, and plant that the car was built at. You need the buck or door tag to find out more specific info on the cars options or lack there of.

    I assume the car doesn't have any power options, radio, or Ac?

    W is the engine code for GT Turbo in 83-84. It should have a Y on the door data sticker under the radio code. There is no other Y on the sticker anyway unless it is a comp prep. It also should have manual windows and no air unless it is add on. Lets see some pics.

    I haven't got a ton of info from the seller. They state it is a Y code radio, has no power windows. The ad states it's an 85 yet the VIN says 86. I got a pic of the door sticker but the only thing I can really read off it is the last of the VIN above and a 9/85 date. What determines if it is an 85 1/2?

    There is only one exterior picture in the ad. It is a couple hour drive away and I may just have to go look at it to make certain.

    Anything else I should look for if I go for a drive?

    As stated previously it looks like it had a dealer (?) option sunroof installed.

    Are you certain it isn't the factory flip up roof option?

    Things to look for are quarter spats, correct steering wheel and horn pad, hurst shifter boot and knob, thin body mouldings and that all 6 front lights are present. The inner markers are not run $85 each, headlights are $100 each and the corner markers are... well sky is the limit.

    Seller says it's an '85 probably because of the date on the door tag. It's an '86. Production starts in the previous calendar year.

    I just got back from looking at this car. Aftermarket sunroof installed (leaking at front), aftermarket deck installed with rear speakers, and dealer installed a/c. If anyone wants MY OPINION on this car, PM me.

    Thanks to boardmaster for verifying for me that this is in fact the same car that I was interested in last month:

    And it appears that he has used a stock picture copied off the internet.

    Here is the new ad:

    Not recommended for the price for sure!
