What Does The Fox Say? 1985 Ford Mustang LX 5.0

I might be getting old, but the Fox body 5.0 Mustang is starting too look like a collectible to my eyes — probably because the early examples are pushing 40 years old and my vision is getting fuzzy.  It REALLY doesn’t seem that long ago that a ’93 Cobra was a new ride…but I digress.  Find this 1985 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 offered for $11,500 near Chicago, IL via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

This is an early Fox body which means it has the 5.0 liter V8 fed with a carburetor to produce 210 horsepower and 270 ft-lbs of torque. The track rat in me would rather have the Koni adjustable shock and turbo 4-banger equipped SVO version, but the 5.0 V8 version will probably get the job done and sound better when uncorked anyway.
