This 1985 SVO has 60K original miles and is a real survivor. It has been in CA and NV its entire life. Clean title in my name and clean Carfax. Passed CA emissions in 2017. The vehicle is all stock except for a few tasteful modifications that can all quickly and easily be reversed: Receipts available upon request


• Upgraded Radio (blue tooth) and speakers
• H&R Sport Spring. Same spring rate just lowers car about an inch. Greatly improved stability (I have original springs)
• Sub-frame connectors and K brace to improve stability
• Magnaflow muffler and dual tail pipes

I have always wanted one of these since they came out in 1984. It took 33 years but I can finally afford one. The previous owner was able to provide $8K in recent maintenance invoice. See below. I have since replaced the OEM Koni shocks (these cars came with Konis), added the aforementioned springs and braces. I also rebuilt the front brakes, changed the brake hoses and pads (Hawk) and gave the car a tune up. I have been driving this car daily for the last several weeks while I perform some repairs on my daily driver. It's a real joy to drive, especially with the updated suspension and brake work. It has not been cut up in anyway. The paint is in really good shape for a car that is 33 years old. No material scratches or dings. Well documented including $10K in invoices over the last few years and the original purchase agreement.

For me it's more about the build. I enjoy working on cars and this one needed very little. I can now say I have owned one and it's time to move onto the next project.

Major Service: Receipts available upon request

April 2018 New valve seals (I needed something to do)
• March 2018 - Turbo rebuild by Evergreen Turbo
• January 2018 New spark plugs, PCV valve, rotor
• December 2017 New OEM Koni Shocks, H&R springs, front bushings
• December 2017 Maximum Motorsports sub frame connectors to brace the car

What's wrong with it?

• The trip odometer (not the odometer) gets hung up at 100 miles sometimes
• There is a seam separation on both the driver and passenger seat. See pictures. TMI makes a reupholster kit that is dead on. 43-73506-955-L543P for $880
Crack in the speaker dash
• Touch up paint area near head light. See picture

$9,000. Located in my garage in Las Vegas NV.

Thanks. Car needs a good home. Needs nothing really other than new front seat leather if the seam separations bother you.

I believe the car was in Los Angeles its entire life before I got it. It was posted on the SF Craigslist though. It is now sold and reside in Yuma AZ.
