Description for Ford Mustang 1985

This is a 1985 LX 5.0. I have rubber trim from a GT, but the car is an LX. Only the LX came with a manual and 4BBL in 1985, the last year before EFI. It's been in my family since it was purchased in 1985 at Sunnyvale Ford. It was my dad's car, then my uncle's, then mine. It's always been garaged or covered and never in an accident. I am selling it because I have too many projects going, but not in a rush so my price is pretty firm.
Car Details...
Appearance: original tan vinyl top was replaced with black cloth by King Kustom covers. Driver's seat was re-foamed and re-enforced. New lines and new motor for the top. Wheels are 17"/8" Cobra R that I had powder coated to gloss black, with 3/8" spacers. Interior is clean and original, except for white shifter knob. All the dash lights were replaced when heater core was done. Paint is original and has small chips here and there but it's patina. I have never seen a cleaner 85.
Suspension: Eibach springs and shocks/struts. Front and Rear Eibach sway bars. Upgraded upper and lower rear control arms. Fully welded subframes, done back in the day by Charlie's Mustangs. The car handles very well but rides firm
Driveline - T5 was upgraded to T5 world class heavy duty version. Gears upgraded to 3:27
Cooling- Heater core was just replaced. The radiator was upgraded to aluminum 4-row, and water pump, the thermostat was recently replaced.
Engine- Intake and carb were upgraded to Edelbrock performer. Roller rockers are 1.6. I added a fuel pressure regulator to keep the Edelbrock at spec (3psi).
Smog- I have the original air cleaner and heat risers which I install at smog time. The car passes as it sits right now... just registered it and smogged it a few weeks ago.
