I'm selling my 1985 Mustang Convertible that I've owned and slowly upgraded since 2001. It will be tough to let it go. as I've turned every nut and bolt on this car. but we are relocating to a home with a smaller garage and I won't have winter storage. so it is time to let it go. It's a very clean car. with no rust and everything done right. It's won a First and a couple of Second Place awards at the annual Ivy Tech Mustang show. It's really the best of both worlds. as you can do some minor wrenching each spring and fall. but drive it all summer with confidence.  


I've listed it as having 110. 00 miles on it. The odometer shows less. but I swapped in a 140 SSP speedo a few years back. so 110. 00 is my best guess.  


I have a clear title. and will include a couple boxes of Fox Body parts as well. The car also includes a car cover and a convertible top boot. both in good used shape. I'm sure that I'm forgetting something. but here is a list of what I've done over the past 15+ years:

Body/Suspension/Interior

Base-clear in Pacific Blue (non-OEM color). done professionally 6 years ago. including underside of trunk/hood. door jambs. etc. A few imperfections. but still looks very nice on a rust-free body. I have about a half quart of paint for touch-up.  Custom cowl cover and rear spoiler painted to matchAll door and trunk moldings/seals replaced when the car was paintedUnderside cleaned and coated with POR-15. very cleanWelded in subframe connectors Forward-facing hood scoop on a stock 1983 “bulge” hood – draws cold air onto motor while running1987-1993 “big brake” upgrade with 11” slotted rotors. larger calipers and Cobra-spec reservoir/boosterStrut Tower BraceNewer black top with new motorPolice (SSP) spec 140-mph speedometerSVO steering wheel w/cruise deleteNew carpet with sound deadener installed on entire panNew door sills and front seatbelt sleevesNew (3-year old) battery. relocated to trunkCobra R rims with 4 near new (90%+) tiresSuper-clean interior with halo headrestsKenwood AM/FM/CD/MP3 system with upgraded speakers in stock locations (nothing cut)Recent complete tie rod (both) replacement and alignment

 Motor

5. 0 HO block from an '87 Lincoln with flat-top pistons (slightly higher compression than dished pistons)GT40 heads and intake from a '97 Explorer with a 1” spacer between upper and lower intakeEFI Conversion with mass-airUnderdrive pullies70MM throttle body with PPR spacerAdjustable fuel pressure regulatorCold-air intake that draws from the stock '85 location at the bottom of the fenderwellHigh flow Taurus electric fan on a newer 3-core radiator3G Alternator upgradeMAC equal-length shorty headers. off road h-pipe. Dynomax mufflers. 2. 5” stainless pipes (sounds great)Hi-torque mini starterA/C deleteAftermarket chrome distributorAccel coilMSD Box with tach adapterWalbro 225lph fuel pumpFuel lines upgraded to all steel 89-93 routing

 Drivetrain

World Class T-5 transmission with a Hurst short-throw shifter (the short-throw is probably my favorite upgrade)Cobra –spec clutch. with a UPR Quadrant and Steeda cable/firewall adjustmentFRPP Aluminum DriveshaftUpgraded front sway barRebuilt 8. 8 rear end w/3. 55 gearing and rear sway bar

 Issues

Top takes some work to line up and clamp shut. especially after it's been down all summerRight rear window gearing is stripped. takes some help to go up/down and doesn't seal. left rear window motor just diedBrake lights periodically stick on. needs a new switch installed on the pedal. You can easily clear them by "flicking" the brake pedal with your foot.  


The car can be seen at my home in Fort Wayne. Indiana. Feel free to ask for more pictures. and please. please. please ask questions. I have perfect eBay feedback. and the last thing I want is for someone to feel that anything was misrepresented. The car is very clean. always gets compliments and "thumbs-up". and has won local awards. but it is not perfect by any means. It's a 32 year-old car that was given a very thorough amateur/rookie restoration. and it is faster. handles better and is more fun to drive than any Mustang that Ford made in 1985.  

$500 deposit due through PayPal within 24 hours. and the balance due on pickup in 7 days. If the winning bidder arrives with the balance and the car is not what they expected. I will return their deposit on the spot and leave positive feedback.  

My reserve is reasonable. and my B-I-N is less than what most V8 Fox Body convertibles are going for on eBay. I will not ship the car to Africa or the Middle East. and I won't refund the overage from the cashier's check you'd like to send me. so please don't try to hustle me.
