Waited quite a while to get an SVT focus... found her in Longview, TX, which is a 4-5 hour ride from my house. Needs some TLC and elbow grease, but is a gem for sure.

Comments welcome, and thanks for looking.

She's a 1-owner with EAP and 39K when I picked her up.
No damage or accidents... only real damage is from the idiot that grommeted the front license plate holder from the inside. And then the person that tried to spray paint it. [scratch]

svt's are sexy!

I'm loving that last picture

Good luck with her man!
Thanks and yes, SVT = [:)~]

Last pic is easy to do... as you take the shot, rotate the lens' zoom ring.
Can be done in photoshop too - but I don't have photoshop. [:(]

They were asking $8650 - I gave him $8200 (and he let me nab the center rear headrest from a non-EAP SVT that he had, had two).

I'm happy with the deal... I know there are SVT's around in better shape and that already have some aftermarket bits on them - but they were in the $10k-$12K range. I was seriously mulling over the '02 Silver SVT that EDDIEBROCK has on here, then happened upon this one while surfing craig'slist during lunch at work. The guy had just listed that morning and I was the 3rd person to call on it. That was Friday - picked her up on Wednesday.

thanks for all the comments, I appreciate it!
Last night I worked on the lenses, they were a bit nasty.

Couple of before





Work in progress





And after - Going to do them one more time and should clear up the clouding at the top of the lenses.
