All Good points expressed on this subject!
Here`s my .02 worth:
I believe that the 85 1/2 is the best overall
svo. Bought one brand new! payed $13,800
drove for several months with 4 sale sign
price $16,000. Being a Marketing student
in every sense I wanted to see who & for what
reasons ppl were attracted to my car.
The Majority of the ppl were interested
in the fact that there were only 439 made.
Most were RARE CAR fans. & not just rare
but fastest & just diff enough to set it apart
from other year svo`s.
I sold the car almost 2 years old (24 k mi.)
for 13,500 ($300 less than sticker!) To a guy
who was looking for a black 85 1/2 Only.
Try that with other year svo`s.
There were many big (& small>not discussed) upgrades made in 85 1/2
making it IMO the Ultimate year SVO
Remember There`s much to be said for
rarety when you spend gobs of $$ restoring
an svo & try to recoup when horse trading
ALSO: There are several ppl from all over the country who want the 85
1/2 I currently have for sale. The serious svo` er wouldn`t fly 3000
for other year svo`s.
Just my opinion...
Own 86 Comp. Prep. &
85 1/2 SVO.
