Classic Car Overview

1985 Mustang GT Convertible PACKAGE DEAL.  CAR IS AVAILABLE 2023.  CALL ME, NO TEXTS, NO EMAILS. TOO MANY EMAIL SCAMMERS> SEE BELOW IF INTERESTED>. NC car virtually zero rust including underside. No winters, maybe seen rain 10 times.  INCLUDES:  2 engines; 2 trans; 2 rear ends. All original parts removed, stored &; included. Fun, FAST, extra clean. I have always run full synthetic oil & premium fuel since day 1. Black vinyl top is in excellent condition. xtra perf parts included. Interior excellent. original dash no cracks or issues. Body is ORIGINAL paint with some chips on lower doors & rockers. Only 2 minor issues are passenger side rocker has dent on underside is seen in picts and small amount of creasing in rubber endure type front bumper.
I am the 3rd owner of this car and I have owned since 1991.  This car has been stored for every winter since I have owned it. Only roughly 5500 of these made, and by modern standards that is a relatively low production. I respected that from the day I bought it. These fox Mustangs are beginning to rise and will only appreciate from here. especially clean original examples like this one. Every original part removed, was boxed, and kept. including factory shocks Radio; smog equip.

To my knowledge, this was the last American muscle car to be equipped with a 4 barrel carb. This car has electronic ignition, but no computer. You can actually tune it old school. The original motor was pulled at 90K miles. It had zero issues at the time, I just wanted more power. I purchased a 331 short block from Fox Lake Performance from near Massillon OH. 9.5:1, Trick flow Alum heads,  and Cam, Probe Industries roller rockers, air gap intake & Holley 4160 carb. Fox Lake est. 350 HP as built. ($6K invested) Built pro T-5 5 speed. Car pulls hard through 5th gear. OEM T5 transmission included, excellent cond / no issues. Pulled with engine, supposedly not a good idea to handle higher HP and torque upgrades with a stock T-5.
All  poly suspension bushings installed  & shocks might have 10K on them. Tight car, no squeaks or rattles. Tires are new.   5/14/2020 new Cooper Cobras installed P 235-60-R15.  Slightly taller & wider than stock, but they fit the wheel well better and are wider without issues for turning, etc. 

Original 302 was gone through by professional engine builder. Crank re-polished, new bearings, etc; stronger rods & pistons, factory cam, etc. Engine builder said had no issues just suggested upgrading. Baked & repainted correct Ford Gray.(see picts), new stainless hardware. factory headers and air cleaner also in excellent cond. OEM engine & stand included in this package. I have all factory internals and all oem bolts bagged & tagged. Original OEM carb + correct date coded extra OEM Ford/ Holley carb rebuilt by Pony carburetors of PA. Extra date coded OEM alum intake included. Have OEM air cond, but not installed. Have OEM alternator and all other parts. Cruise control is hooked up and fully functioning on HP motor.

Car has rebuilt 8.8 rear with new Traction Lok rear, 3:27 ratio. Extra 3.08:1 ring & pinion included. Factory 7.5 rear was removed and Traction Lok rebuilt. Ratios included for 7.5: 2.95:1 (stock) 3.45:1 3.73:1. All in EX shape.

You get the best of both worlds, the additional fun & power of the 331 C I. with stronger trans & rear end with no worries, and all original parts to reinstall as this car gains age & value to return to factory original.

Paint & body is VG considering its original. There are small chips in the rockers, and on the A pillars and one or two very small nicks on front of hood.. Car has always been waxed so the chips never rusted. No rust. Even underside has almost zero rust (see picts). Trunk seams & wells and bottoms of doors free from any rust. Again, this car has never seen winter or salt and almost no rain.

Interior is also VG+. Carpet is good and OEM, but could probably be replaced if show car desired. I will not respond to email as too many scammers tried to send me viruses, etc. If you are truly interested, call me @ 33 OH four two nine, 35 two six (cell) Leave mssg, I'll call you back.     

If you are interested in this car bone stock, I am willing to put the original engine, transmission, and rear end back in the car.  That price is $16,000 with a 5000.00 non refundable deposit.  I'll also need several weeks to complete.  I'll take vacation time & do it as quickly as possible if that's the option you prefer.

  This is an honest, reliable car. i doubt there is a cleaner, more original = 85 Gt conv, that has been driven, available. Not a trailer queen, but also not a car that leaves much to not be proud of if you are a fan of Fox bodies. I'm selling because I'm over 60 and looking for Cadillacs and other full size luxury cars as opposed to muscle cars. Thanks
