For 1985, the front end was restyled with a grille-less nose with a horizontal air intake slot. The Mustang GT received new E5AE cylinder heads, a revised Holley four-barrel carburetor, a new and more aggressive roller camshaft (only in models with the manual transmission), less restrictive exhaust manifolds, and a pseudo dual exhaust which brought more power to a conservatively rated 210 hp (157 kW) engine. The HP was Understated, many Dyno'd from 215 to almost 230 Bone-Stock.This would be the last carbureted V8 in the Mustang.
The '85 utilized gas struts, variable rate springs and a rear quad shock arrangement.The front anti-sway bar thickness increased to 1.3 inches from 1.125 inches and the rear anti-sway bar was bumped to 0.83 inches from 0.79 inches. In addition, new Goodyear P225/60VR15 uni-directional Gatorbacks were mounted on new 15x7 inch wheels to match the suspension to the powerful engine. The transmission gear ratios were improved with a 3.35:1 first gear (lower than the 2.95:1 gear of 1984) in the new “World Class” T-5 and a short-throw shifter helped quicken gear selection. Axle ratios in ‘85 were 2.73:1 (standard) and 3.08:1 (optional) for the 5-speed
