Vehicle Description

You're looking at one-owner and loaded icon with a terrific presentation and poise. And yes, this 1985 Ford Mustang GT has a 5.0 V8 heart and five-speed manual.

The Ford Mustang was one of the brightest stars in the performance-starved mid-80s, and this one really shows off the best of it all. It's a true 5.0, but it has the look of the special SVO turbo. This includes the aerodynamic front end with the flush-mounted single headlight, a new bumper treatment, body-colored c-pillar trim, and the unique rear with the double-decker rear spoiler. They even added the hallmark offset hood scoop that make these so distinctive. Of course, this one didn't need much addition to draw attention thanks to a respray later in life of the vibrant factory red that keeps this one looking glossy in the sunshine.

The multi-tone tan interior is a timeless color combo against the exterior red. We're especially fond of the bucket seats with terrific bolstering, upgraded headrests, and distinctive red piping. In fact, with the door panels nicely coordinating this setup it looks quite sophisticated. Plus, you have a ton of great features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, a sunroof, power locks, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for power windows. And more than just loaded, you'll love this because it's a true driver's machine. That means a grippy sports steering wheel, full round gauge package with large speedo & tach, and a stick shift in the ideal position for your right hand.

The 5.0 High Output V8 evolved each year, and 1985 is the pinnacle of four-barrel carbureted development. With 210 horsepower, it would be a few years before the Mustang would have more ponies under the hood. With a great motor like this, it's great to have what's believed to be the original V8 still in the engine bay. Plus, the ultra-tidy presentation backs up the belief the ultra-low odometer reflects actual mileage. The five-speed manual transmission puts complete control of this V8 in your hands. There are also great anytime driving features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and sway bars front & rear. And the set of 17-inch SVT Cobra-style alloys fill the wheel wells nicely and allow for better performance rubber.

The sale come complete with owner's manual and the Marti Report. This is cherished one-owner coupe with distinction and power. Don't miss out, call today!
