Hi there I am selling my 1985 mustang GT LSX swap project. Things have changed and decided we are getting a boat instead of having a street/strip car. I have thousands into parts, trying to sell the project as a whole for someone to finish. Not cost has been spared in this build, and I am very picky and a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to building a car. Here are the details on the car, and a list of parts.

-The Car, 1985 mustang GT t-top, hatchback
New door seals, T-top seals, Hatchback seals & struts. AJE tubular K-member in the front, with new lower control arms, bushings & ball joint. Eibach lowering springs, new sway bar end links, new steering rack, new struts, SN95 front brakes, with new calipers, 5 lug swap. The car also has a SN95 brake master cylinder. Out back there is an 8.8 rear end, with 3:73 gears, and factory limited slip. Maximum motorsports Tubular lower control arms and disk brakes, the brake system is complete & bled as well. I installed torque box reinforcements as well to stiffen up the rear of the car. Inside the car, the interior has been basically stripped, but I do have all the stock interior, amazing condition seats, door panels, carpet and dash. I also installed Scott Rod Fab aluminum door panels, the dash is just sitting in place, not installed yet. Also from Scott Rod Fab, I have a heater delete aluminum panel & aluminum pieces to pretty up under the hood. I have a fiberglass 4″ cowl hood, but also have the factory hood as well. Not installed on the car is the 8 point Roll cage, Sub-frame connectors & cross braces, Driveshaft safety loop, and AJE cross member for TH400. The fuel tank is out of a fuel injected 1986 mustang, so it has the proper sending unit to make the factory gauge work. I have installed a walbro 455 fuel pump in the tank as well.

-The Transmission
TH400, rebuilt with new TCI manual valve body, with trans brake. Alto red clutches and Kolene steels. Fully rebuilt and gone thru by Phil out of Vancouver.

-The Motor, 5.3 LY5 vortec
And the best for last, I started with a 2007 Gen 4 block, way beefier rods, and front cam position sensor. The motor originally had a bad lifter & cam bearings. So they were replaced with Teflon coated cam bearings, a polished LS7 Cam, lifters and trays. Also a 3-bolt cam conversion was installed with ARP cam bolts. The heads are 243, which next to the 799 heads are the best factory heads money can buy. They were completely gone thru, valve job, new valve seals, decked a few thou for minimal cleanup, and Comp Cams beehive valve springs were installed to handle the higher lift of the LS7 cam. The block was decked for minimal cleanup, and microfinish hone on the bores. The crank was polished, and new main and rod bearings installed. Piston rings were installed with the Top ring gapped to .028″, and bottom ring gapped to .024″, factory pistons and rods were re-used, and were in perfect shape. New factory 5.3 MLS gaskets were installed, and ARP head bolts were torqued to spec. Originally, this motor was a DOD motor, so that was eliminated, and an LS7 valley cover was installed to replace the solenoids that controlled oil pressure. Also an F-body LS pan kit was installed as well. The pan was modified with a bung welded in place for turbo oil return. The headers are an LS3 version from a Camaro, but fit perfectly in the engine compartment. AJE motor mounts hold everything in place. All gaskets have been replaced, and assembly lube was used, if not over used. To finish the motor off an ARP crank bolt holding the factory balancer in place. The alternator and power steering assembly also is included, but not in the motor. Heater delete bypass host installed on water pump as well. And polished aluminum fabricated valve covers. Also included are all the stock LS parts, and extra intake, throttle bodies, and fuel rails as well. I have no need to keep any LS parts around.

Now with all that said, there is still many other parts on the shelf for the car as well. All parts are new on the shelf, and I have receipts for everything.
-Griffin cross flow radiator for LS swap in a mustang
-Spal 12″ dual fan setup
-Aluminum Battery box
-Exide AGM Battery
-Reducer fitting & power steering hoses to go from chevy pump, to ford rack
-CX racing intercooler & piping, boots and clamps
-HKS blow off valve, and mounting pipe
-44mm Precision turbo Wastegate
-3 horse mini starter
-Aeromotive Fuel pressure regulator & gage
-8.8 Diff cover with Girdle for main caps
-On3 78mm Turbo
-Hood pins
-cometic header gaskets
-LS engine valley lift plate

I think that is just about everything, sorry for the long ad, just so many parts and details about the car. I have owned it a little over a year. I have the title in hand, and clean. Supposedly I bought the car from the 3rd owner. It is in pretty good shape for an 85, and all glass is great, even have the factory T-top storage bags, and for those mustang nuts, it has the rare Marchal fog lights and covers. I am trying to sell the project as a whole, and I am asking $ 9,000.00 OBO, I am not interested in trades. I have way more pictures than the few I have posted. Some of the car when it was still complete interior as well. If anyone has any questions or would like to make an offer, text is best, but calls and emails work as well. show contact info Jeff

If anyone is interested in picking up where I left off, I have a list of parts of what is left to finish the car, including, slicks, wheels, and front runners. There is about $ 8K to $ 10K to have the car be a complete running and driving car. I’m happy to help with any information as well.
Thanks for taking the time to read my lengthy ad.
