As Neil put it in other e-mails regarding this subject...what was
"pre-production press" (shop manual pictures, Ford pre-production
brochures, or covered in "prototype" tests in magazines -- one such
magazine test showed a solid rear seat back and vented headrests for
example) and what was actually produced are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.
Even the "first" SVO was really a dark red GL (I think) that they put the
"SVO" sticker on the fender just to take a photo to make the goverment
trademark department happy -- to show that they were using "SVO" on a car.
Neil has said to me that he had seen an '84 car with a decal on the fender
but couldn't verify if it was factory that way. And I've heard others that
have seen the SVO emblem on the fenders of the 85.5 cars -- in effect --
they were either:
a) built wrong
b) dealer added
c) owner added
Next subject, please!
