We Found the Last Contour SVT Ever Built | On the Lift at Livernois Motorsports
It's not everyday that you just stumble upon a piece of history, but that's exactly what happened during a recent visit to @Livernois Motorsports in Dearborn, MI. Amongst all the various Domestic performance machines in the show we spotted a pristine Toreador Red Contour SVT. It had the familiar Medium Prairie Tan interior, and still wore its original window sticker. We soon learned that this 2000 model year example was the very last CSVT to roll off the Kansas City Assembly lines.
As the story goes, several of the SVT team members have been moving this car around from location to location for over two decades. While it is not a perfect car by any means, they have managed to keep its mileage in the ~150 range. It was on the rack at Livernois getting a new fuel pump installed and fluids changed in preparation for a public show at the SVT 30th Anniversary gathering during the Mustang Memories show at Ford HQ. This video tell the story:
I'll have a closer look at this car in a vid coming out in a few days, so subscribe to the SVTP Youtube channel if you don't want to miss it. Seeing this car brought back a lot of memories of wrenching with friends on these cars in college. Who knows, one day I may try to track down a clean Silver Frost unit with the Midnight Blue interior to add to my collection. It would look great sitting next to my silver Gen 2 L.
