View Full Version : SVO fender emblem question

11-29-2011, 08:28 PM
Did all SVO model years have the SVO fender emblems on them originally?
I keep seeing a lot of SVOs with the emblems missing. I wonder if they were removed for painting or other reasons at some point in the last quarter century or were they never installed by Ford.

Most of the 84's had no fender emblems. Just the one on the rear deck lid. I bought one new and still has original paint and no fender decals. The 84 was a shadow sticker. The 85-86 was a chrome stick on emblem.

Thanks Kendal. Do you know if the 1985.5 and 86 model years always came with the fender emblems new from Ford?

Ken Potter bought one new in 85.5, maybe he will chime in for sure. I am pretty sure thay did.

Only the 1986 models came with the "SVO" emblems on the front driver and passenger sides.

That explains a lot. You mean only '86 model year, not 1985.5, right? Thanks for the info. I am looking to buy an 1985.5 or 86 model year SVO. It's hard to see if the car was painted just looking at for sale ad pics. The lack of side emblems (if they were there originally) kinda throws a major red flag.

By the way does any one know of a nice, solid condition SVO for sale in the 2-300 mile radius from Chicago?

right, 1986 year model only.

right, 1986 year model only.

'85.5 did NOT have the emblem. '86 only had the emblem, and note the placement of the emblem. They are NOT centered on the fender....

I'm 60 miles south of Chicago in Kankakee. If something pops up I'll get back to you. I'm always browsing CL. eBay etc. I know of an 86 T-top a few miles away but I doubt they want to sell. What price range are you looking for?
