1985 Ford Mustang GT
A Foxbody Mustang is a Mustang produced anywhere from 1979 to 1993.
It doesn't matter if it's a coupe, convertible, or a hatch. It also
doesn't matter what engine it has either, or transmission. As long
as it's between the ages of 1979 and 1993, it's a Foxbody. I know,
it's a really weird name to give to a car. But, it's called a
Foxbody because it's on the Ford Fox platform. Ford designed the
Fox platform as a unibody chassis and used it across a wide range
of Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles. Ford's main objective with the
Fox platform was to downsize the massive cars they made in the
Welcome to 1985, and this consignment in the form of a 1985 Foxbody
Mustang convertible. The consigner states that this car is all
original, even down to the paint, and the 38,296 miles indicated
are original. A few areas of fading, and some scratches for the
front bumper mid section and drivers front quarter, but otherwise
very nice condition overall. Put the top down and breathe in 1985
all over again.
Like new Medium Charcoal Gray Metallic bathes the exterior of this
car. Adorning the midline is a darker stripe of titanium gray, and
this runs around the car creating various coves and flares, as well
as some embossed badging just north of the rockers. This is also
noted on the hood with a knockout decal GT badge. A black
convertible top in excellent condition is above and it has a clear
glass rear window. Standard 15-inch 10 hole wheels are on all 4
corners. Up front are dual rectangular headlights set deep within a
black surrounding plastic bezel.
All original and all shades of light and dark gray with black
handles for the door panels. To spice up the gray, are front
buckets and a rear 2 plus 2 bench. These have dark gray small
checkered inserts and lighter broadcloth bolsters, and a red wide
piping delineating the shades of gray. These float in a sea of
clean gray carpeting. The dash is black and original with slighter
lighter black inserts that have machine screws to mount these
individual plates which house the instrumentation. In the center is
an aftermarket Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo. Just below this at the
front of the console is a digital readout clock, and an overhead
graphic showing fuel, washer fluid levels, and exterior lights
which are not lit. Moving back is the shift lever with a black
leather boot, and the handbrake lever, also in black within the
gray stitched console sides. Seen when the top is down is a very
nice tonneau covering all buttoned up for this interior.
Under the hood is an original 5.0 Liter V8 which shows some slight
patina but is clean. This is fed by a Holley 4 barrel carburetor,
and has a T5 5-speed manual transmission on back. A Ford 7.5-inch
rear with 2.73 rear TracLok axle setup is noted to push this car
along. Machined cast valve coverings and no corrosion for all the
bolt ons, as well as a spun stainless dual snout air cleaner
covering with a 5.0 Liter 4V H.O. Badge on its top.
Very slight surface rust is seen but mostly structurally solid
unibody construction with clear floor pans and rockers. Independent
coil springs and 4 link with coil spring suspension as well as
power disc brakes on front and power drums on the rear are noted.
Dual exhaust snakes its way rearward and shows some slight rust on
This car fired right up and handled the test track with flying
colors. A great handler, and tight car, so a 2 thumbs up goes to
All original here folks complete with its small battle scars, a
like new top and interior, and overall really nicely preserved
survivor. And of course, engine power from the 5 liter that is sly
as a Fox!
