1985 Ford Mustang GT/HO
1985 Mustang GT/HO,
Bought this car in 1995 and has been barely used for the last 16 years. Current mileage is 70,575. Factory sunroof, works, doesn't leak and even still have the color keyed pouch that you put it in when it’s taken out. A couple extra 10 hole wheels,manuals, wiring manuals.
I stopped driving it because of a new job. Prior to that the engine was gone through. Fresh upper end new roller cam, valve train to match all done at Roush in Livonia. New clutch, pressure plate and throw-out bearing, Bottom end got new bearings, double row timing chain and all new gaskets or seals. Carburetor was rebuilt with jetting and power valve to match up with cam. Stainless shorty headers, new true dual stainless exhaust system. Runs strong and is completely street drivable. New master cylinder when brought out of storage, had fresh brakes when put in storage. Had saved it to give to one of the grandkids but they would rather have something else so selling it. Going to need tires.
Vehicle was Ziebarted when new but does have a couple of spots on the driver’s door. Because the car was Ziebartedthe underside, wheel well lips, truck floor and all the usual Mustang spots are super solid. Headliner is starting to fall, don't they all, but is easily glued back in place.
This vehicle drives great, no pulling hands free driving and no pull while braking. Cam was set for great low end and pulls strong to 5500. The pictures tell it all. Very clean and well preserved interior. Windows, locks, cruise, rear defroster all work. A/C needs charge, after all it is 30 years old. Lights, turn signals, radio all work too.
When I bought the car in 1995 and the original owner had driven the car for 65,000 miles and something went bad in the valve train on the heads. He parked it and let it set for at least five years based on the license plate that was on it when I bought it. When I purchased the car we pulled the engine and went through it, broken valve springs. I had the heads done at Roush where a friend of mine worked, we added a bit bigger cam, double row timing chain, completely redid the heads with springs to match cam and installed new bearings in the short block. The engine was reassembled with aHV Melling oil pump, better oil pan, resealed and put back in. Since then the car has been driven sporadically. Interior is really nice, no burn marks that I have found, original owner did smoke evidently because the ashtray has been used. Everything works and it drives well. Windshield was just replaced a few weeks ago.
This is the third time I have listed the car. I have closed the auction to the first time buyers and will only accept bids from those who have a well-established history. If your serious go ahead and bid as I’ll delete bids of those who don’t meet my criteria. Thanks and good luck.
