    Default Just Picked Up This 85 GT!

    I picked this up from a fella in Alabama. Its an 85 GT with 65k miles on it and it still has some Goodyear Gatorbacks on it. The interior is very clean with an awesome AM/FM stereo with no cassette player....LOL!

    It came with a build sheet, window sticker, and an old punch card used for QC. I'd never seen one of those before.

    Super awesome. Congrats! Love the build sheet and other docs you got with it. My best friend growing up got an 85 GT for his 16th birthday present.

    It has a custom stainless x-pipe with Flowmasters and 3.73 gears. The smog pump was removed too but that's about it except for the camber caster plates and the strut brace. The interior is totally stock.

    Wow what a clean car! Great buy! I'd love to see some interior pics.

    Glad to see the MM Strut Tower Brace clears the double snorkel air cleaner. I've been looking around for a STB for my '85 but there's not much documentation about which ones clear this air cleaner.

    Well, you may be in luck! I'm not a big fan of the brace and as this is going to stay stock I'll probably pull it off in the next couple weeks. I'll get some interior pictures soon but the interior is pretty dang clean and stock!
