VEHICLE STORY

My 1985 Ford LTD LX. Ford built very few if these in 1984/1985. The LTD LX Model had a 5.0L non roller CFI HO and AOD transmission, 7.5" rear with 3.27 gears. This car now has an 1989 Mustang SEFI 5.0L roller HO, Stock AOD with a shift kit, Maximum Motorsports (MM) camber caster plates, MM extreme duty rear lower control arms with adjustable ride height, and MM pan hard bar. Koni yellow struts and shocks. Suspension is 1993 Mustang Cobra (4 wheel disc brakes) with 3.73 gears of n the rear. Hawk HPS pads all around. OEM 1993 Cobra rims. 650 pound front springs, 340lb rear springs. Future mods are GT40 heads and a 93 Cobra or explorer intake or GT40 ( tubular) intake. Keeping with a (somewhat) 93 Cobra theme. Over all my goal is to have a nice cruiser that can handle better than people think with a little extra power. Car now has dual exhaust. On May 6th my LTD LX was hit by an older woman running an intersection when i had the right of way. Low speed damage to my LTD. No frame damagenatnall. A yaris hit me. I got lucky. Couldn't afford to have the whole car painted. But it is better. Waiting for the pinstripe to be painted on now. Did a coil over conversion recently. Very tight. Handles much better. Also added a k-member brace.

Nice! This brings back memories for me; my parents each had one back in the day. The one my mom drove was white like yours. Interestingly, they both started experiencing a hesitation upon accelerating from a stop that no one could seem to fix, so they sold them. Extra points for the Slayer decal!
