Hey y'all! Super excited to be here and say that I managed to find a well running (i'm told) 03 SVT that i'm getting for $500! Can't beat that.
I've been building cars since I was 16, but they've always been my DD as well so could never go too crazy. I had a previous rally build that I was doing with an Abarth 500. Had done a ton of work to it over the off season (got it up to 250hp + suspension work) and was really looking forward to the season to start when life happened and had to get a bigger vehicle for the kid to fit in the back. SO ended up selling it before even getting to race it a single time. Before that had a few track cars, a 3000GT VR4 and a G35.
Then came a mechanic buddy of mine who mentioned that he had an SVT sitting around that he hadn't done anything with in a few years. Asked him to check out the current condition and get back to me. He says the interior is trashed due to a leak in the sunroof but after putting a new battery in it runs great. Guess we'll find out exactly what shape it's in once I pick it up next week and can do a full inspection on it.

Super excited to have another project that's also not a DD. Gonna use this as a build thread so stay tuned if you are so inclined.

Will post initial pics next week after I tow it home.

There's a youtuber "Sarah -n- Tuned" who I've been following, she's also doing a rally SVT. She's gutted the interior and relocated the battery so far. It's one of a few cars she is currently working on, so not a ton of SVT updates but still interesting to me.

Yea, I ran across her yesterday. Whats funny is I used to follow her and then stopped for a while. Quite the coincidence that I pick one up about the same time she does haha. I've definitely subscribed to see what she comes up with
