Svo

Hi there,

Just wondering where i could find info on SVO's. My mate is looking at purchasing one for $8000, is this a good price? How can we check if its an original? What should he look for?

Give Mick Webb a ring at SVO Motorsport. He will tell you all you need to know.

Does colour really have a bearing on whether it's a good price or not?

Re: Svo

There should be plates and whatnot throughout the car, and not just one single ID plate. I looked into a slightly modified EA SVO (red on black, manual, MPFI) for about $6000 (in a dealership), but the condition was pretty crap bodywise, so $8K may be ok for a very well looked after car. There are markings (stickers or plates can't remember) on some suspension components that will help identify it, as most people who build a replica wouldn't go to such detail. I'm sorry i can't tell you exactly where to look but it's been ages since i researched these cars, but i hope at least it's a start for you.

I can tell you a few details of them just off the top of my head incase you don't ring Mick Webb:
Standard they have - momo (or similar ) steering wheel and seats, dark grey 16x8 svo wheels, lip spoiler, two-tone paintjob (although i have seen single color examples, maybe reprayed tho), mild bodykit, MPFI motor and manual transmissions (none are auto AFAIK). They come with SVO extractors and "free-er flowing" exhaust. They have lower and much stiffer suspension also.
The car i looked at had electric thermos, and a pod style filter that looked almost factory, but i'm pretty sure these were done by the previous owner.

Hope that helps a little bit,
Jared

Re: Svo

One detail, there were auto versions. I have a comparison of one against the VN V6 HSV and they went well with their 3.23 diffs. If you like I can upload it again.

Re: Svo

Ok guys, sorry about that. I was going by information given to me by someone-else who had one. I was told that sway-bars and such had labels indicating that they were fitted by SVO. I have never seen an auto version ever, so i just assumed. Guess i assumed wrong

And Pazza, sorry, i didn't mean to mislead ya, just thought i'd give you some info (as inaccurate as it was) as no-one had yet, just to give ya a start. I'll keep my mouth shut in future haha

Cheers,
Jared
