1985 Ford Mustang Spec Explorer
In 1985, Mustang built upon its last few years of more power and style by offering upgrading its SVO turbo charged 4-cylinder by 30 horse power to 205hp and improving its top 5.0L V8 by 35 horse power to 210hp. This was the last year of the 145hp 4-cylinder turbo GT since the V8 offerings had more power. The L series was dropped making the LX the base with the GT and SVO as upgrades. Just as in 1983, the tires on all models were increased in size again. The grille was changed to match more with the SVO but with an open slit at the bottom. All Mustangs also had a front air dam with four rectangular holes in the center. GT's received integrated fog lamps and the SVO received more flush headlamps. The tail lights on all models were full width with only an opening for the license plate. Sales rose again with 156,514 cars being produced.
