1985 Ford Mustang

In 1982, Ford re-introduced the Boss Mustang. The following year the Mustang received minor restyling to the nose and to the rear-end improving aerodynamics. 1984 saw the introduction of the SVO developed by Ford's Special Vehicle Operations department. For 1985, Ford focused mainly on the front and to the vehicle's mechanical components. In the front was a new front-end with a four-hole integral air dam located below the bumper. There were rectangular parking lamps and GT models had integral fog lamps. Taillamps were full-width with the exception of the license plate opening. Above the right tail lamp was a Ford script oval. Most of the exterior trim and accents switched from black to a charcoal shade, and there were new charcoal front and rear bumper rub strips and body-side moldings.

Versions of the Mustang included the LX, GT, and SVO. The base engine was an overhead cam four-cylinder offering 88 horsepower. The SVO models had a turbocharger and electronic fuel injection which produced 175 horsepower. A V6 was available, displacing 3.8 liters and offering 120 horsepower. Additionally, there was a 5 liter V8 which was rated at 180 horsepower. With a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, it produced 210 horsepower. A four-speed manual gearbox with floor shift controls was standard on the four-cylinder models. The SVO had a five-speed. A SelectShift three-speed automatic was optional. In the front were disc brakes with drums in the rear. The SVO had discs at all four corners.

Pricing began at $6,880 for the base Notchback LX model and rose to $13,580 for the GT Convertible.

LX models were given power brakes and steering as standard equipment, along with remote-control right-side mirror, dual-note horn, interval windshield wipers, and an AM/FM stereo radio.
