Vehicle Description

1985 Ford Mustang GT - T-Roof Hatchback

Why This Car Is Special

The Ford Mustang is as iconic as they come, and the early 80s was a time of rebuilding the name. The Fox Body platform offered great performance, good economy, plenty of options and lots of visual appeal.

This particular Mustang has a Marti Report listing all the specs on the car when it was delivered, but, it has undergone a serious upgrade of the entire drivetrain to make it a seriously fast street machine while still carrying the look and stance of an original Fox Body Mustang.


Too many to list here. See below.


This 1985 Mustang mechanically has been reborn with a redone performance build of the 5.0 engine. It is running a fresh, intercooled, twin T-4 turbo 5.0, with approximately 800 miles on motor, running only 6 conservative psi of boost.

Inside it has Forged pistons, Trick Flow Stage 1 kit with their 170cc heads, cam & hydraulic roller lifters, roller rockers, pushrods, upper & lower intake, Davis Unified Ignition (DUI) Hot Forged Billet distributor with 45,000 volt Screamin' Demon coil, Holley Terminator X electronic fuel injection with handheld, dash-mounted, control panel/screen, 60 lb. Siemans Deka High Impedence fuel injectors, 340 lph Deatschwerks high pressure fuel pump with Aeromotive regulator, Black braided PTFE (Teflon) supply and return lines with -AN fittings.

The chassis sports a TRZ Motorsports K-frame, Tubular control arms, Adjustable caster/camber plates, Strange adjustable coil overs, 5-lug conversion with slotted and drilled rotors and ceramic pads, Power brakes work perfectly since added electric vacuum pump, Power steering rack is new and is connected to a late model Ford electric power steering pump, because the factory serpentine pump won't fit with the Turbo setup. Steering is tight and very responsive.

It also has factory air conditioning that is charged and works well even on the hottest Florida days.

Other mods include the Aluminum radiator and integrated dual Ford Contour electric fan/shroud assembly, TREMEC TKO 600 transmission with QuickTime bellhousing, RAM clutch & pressure plate, 3 1/2" aluminum Performance Shaft Technologies (PST) driveshaft with 1350 ujoints, a Posi 8.8 rear with 3.55 gears. 31 spline, 5-lug Moser axles with 5/8" studs, TRZ Motorsports tubular upper and lower arms mounted to a Wildrides "S" box good to 3000 horsepower, a TRZ anti-roll bar, Strange adjustable shocks, and Strange disc brakes.

This setup will NOT break even on the hardest launches on slicks. Line lock is installed, with the activation switch incorporated on the shifter ball. The 4-point roll bar is welded/tied to tubular subframe connectors and is welded in the CORRECT way. There is ZERO flex in this chassis.

The exhaust is handled by 2 1/2" dual exhaust with H pipe, all the way to the back, with factory stainless tailpipes, giving that factory original look, despite the twin turbos.


Interior is immaculate and retains the two/tone grey high back bucket seats, new carpet, factory dash with Autometer Phantom gauges, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo system with BOSS Audio Systems 100 watt amp and subwoofer, brand new door panels, armrests, steering wheel, and dash pad.


Our 1985 Fox Body wears its white paint scheme with the black trim, black rear spoiler, T-top with all the window seals new, new Carlite factory tinted windshield, power windows and a Fiberglass Kaenen 3 1/2" cowl hood with Redline Tuning struts.

The power door locks work perfectly, since installed new power window motors and new power door lock actuators, and new switches, all lights, switches, wipers, windshield washers, horns, signals, 4-way/emergency flashers also work.

It rides on Weld Prostars all the way around, 15x8 in the rear with new Nitto NT555RII Drag Radials, 295-50-15 and Fronts are 15x4 with 195-65-15 tires.
