The last time I saw it was at the owner's shop outside with flat tires. It was for sale.
    Is this 'Bird still for sale? How much is it? Thanks.

    That is the SVE Tbird owned by John Coletti.


    Ken is talking about Alex Baynard's 1991 Tbird that was made to look like the SVT Tbird. It has been featured in a couple magazines but it does not have a custom front bumper like the SVE Tbird does AFAIK, I have yet to see pictures of the front end.

    Interesting interview:

    TMS: What vehicle would you have liked to have given the SVT treatment?

    JC: This is a hard question to answer since we pretty much always got
    to do the vehicles we wanted to do. The only disappointment I had
    during my tenure at SVT was that we couldn't do the supercharged 1998
    Thunderbird as an SVT model. But given the fact that the Thunderbird
    carline was canceled by the company, it was understandable.

    TMS: Was an SVT Thunderbird ever considered?

    JC: As I mentioned above, we definitely wanted to do an SVT version of
    the old MN12 Thunderbird. We never gave the new two-seater Thunderbird
    any real consideration.

    Ah yes, the Hot Rod January 2002 issue .. I have that one as well. I have yet to see a picture of the front end on Alex's car.

    Interesting

    Well, as usual, I am on looking for information on one thing and have been reading stuff on anything but the primary topic I am researching. Read this entire thread. In the time covered, SC's have gone from low priced cars, to cars, I believe are starting to regain some value. Maybe not, adjusted for inflation. Makes me want to go buy a '89 in Battleground for $600 and get it back on the road. ROFLMAO, maybe I should get my '95 SC 5spd back together first eh?
    I have a 1997 Mustang with a SVO supercharger on it. Look real hard and you can see the snout. I like that part. To the unknowing, you wouldn't know a SC was on this car. Wouldn't a nicely prepared 4.6L with this SC in a t-bird SC with a T56? I would be all over a car like that, right after I win the lottery.

    Since this thread was started Christmas of 2003, a lot more parts have become difficult to keep these cars on the road. Since engine management systems are probably only 100 times better now, it would be interesting, to me, on how to use current technology parts to keep our cars on the road. Soon, all the salvage parts we can get are going to dry up and we will be forced to change or park the car behind the barn to rot away.

    This was an interesting read.

    Now I will see if I can get back on track and see what I can find out about Mark VIII rear-ends in SC's and other interchange parts. How to convert to 5 on 4.5(know I have already read this, but didn't mark it), will a Mark VIII interior fit while I suck it up to redone my interior. I believe I can get complete leather interior for $200, if I shop.

    Several guys over on TCCoA have that SVO supercharger kit on their 4.6 Thunderbirds.

    That is good to know Dave. I should spend some time over there, I am a member, cntinuum, surprise. I would like to get a feel for HG issues, if any, with this combination. LOL, I guess this requires driving the car doesn't it? I bought the '97 Mustang as an "investment". I have lost so much money in the stock market, I decides to put what little bit I had left into fun "investments." I bought the car from Speedway Automall, drove it back to Portland, OR and parked it, in July 2007. Need to get it out and run it before it turns to crap.

    Again, thanks. Good to know where other gather that have this engine combination.

    Mark interior .. you mean like the Dash and everything else ?? I'm the only person in the World who has pulled it off start to finish, two times. Ive seen another attempt, but it was never finished.

    I am just looking to do something simple like the front buckets while it takes me 10 years to get the SC interior redone. That was more of my dad's thing. He helped build a 1949 Mercury body on a 1963 409 4spd chassis. He did the body work to stuff all the Impala interior, from a total that the owner paid $409 for, into the confines of the Mercury. My cousin Larry in Spokane is building a 1966 Mustang body that will ride on a 2003 Mustang GT. My projects are much simplier.

    Spent the morning in the junk yard pulling parts off a '95 t-bird that was a "cash for clunkers" car. It had a 4.6 V8 in it with the tag that they had poured something in the engine to destroy it. Now a blown 4.6L would be a fun car as a SC. My brother has a '99 Cobra 4.6 with SC, and he sure loves it.

    Dan, I bet the Mark VIII interior really sets off the car.

    If its just the seats .. the Mark ones are computer contolled .. need a bit of re-wiring to use with the stock Tbird interior, or switch out the seat tracks, etc ..
