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 65,281 title
verified mile 1985 Foxbody Mustang GT hatchback. The consigner
states that this was bought new in late '84 in Long Island, NY then
moved to Chicago and finally coming to PA. A point to note is that
the car was not a factory equipped AC car, but the original owner
had the selling dealership install AC for those hot Long Island
summers cruising to the Long Beach boardwalk. An original interior,
a factory color repaint and the final year for carburationon the
legendary 5.0 and we have a winner among our midst. A few scuffs
and touch ups, but otherwise very nice condition overall. Settle
into the seats and breathe in 1985 all over again.
Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by

A nicely presenting respray black paint bathes the exterior of this
car. Adorning the midline is a dark stripe of charcoal gray
molding, 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.
Badging is correct and clean as is all the window trim. A sweeping
hatchback provides room for the large rear window complete with a
defogger and sweeps down to the long running spoiler that would
become standard fare on the 1987-93 Mustang LX. Rear quarter window
louver trimmings accentuate the hatch line and up top a lightly
smoked factory sunroof has been cut into the steel. Standard
15-inch 10 hole wheels are on all 4 corners wrapped in nearly new
225/60R15 rubber. Up front are dual rectangular headlights set deep
within a black surrounding plastic bezel thus earning the nickname
for the cars....the "four eye".
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 charcoal gray and original with
slighter lighter charcoal inserts that have machine screws to mount
these individual plates which house the instrumentation. In the
center is the factory AM/FM/Cassette stereo and 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. Not to be left out, the 3 spoke
non-cruise control steering wheel, which is leather wrapped on the
rim and is visually appealing.
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 3.08rear 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 a 4 link with coil spring suspension as well as
power disc brakes on front and power drums on the rear are noted.
Headers feed down to dual exhaust that snakes its way rearward and
shows some slight rust on the mufflers. We note the catalytic
converters have been deleted.
This car fired right up and handled the test track with flying
colors. A veritabletrip back in time with the road of the 5.0 and
shifting gears like a young Wally Dallenbach. A great handler, and
tight car, so a 2 thumbs up goes to it with all functions
All very original here folks complete with its small battle scars,
a known history, the originalinterior, and overall really nicely
preserved survivor. And of course, engine power from the 5 liter
that is sly as a Fox!
