Don't get me wrong, i like the .87 to '93 models, especially since i really like the '93 Cobra's, but there is something about the '85/'86 GT's styling inside, and out.

85-86 are definitely the best looking years for the Fox GT, followed by '82. The 87-93 GTs never really did it for me.

I agree. I prefer the LX model in 87-93 for sure, mainly the coupe.

It's funny the 4 eyed cars never used to do it for me but in recent years they have really grown on me. It makes me sad to think of how many guys have swapped 4 eyed front ends out for the newer style but 10 years ago I would have done the same. I really would love to own a t top coupe one day.

I had an 86 way back when, and switched out the front end from an 87 donor car. At the time I liked the change, but yeah, like Chad I'm thinking now I would love to own a four eyed pony.

I had an '85 5.0 LX coupe (notch) back in the day, and that will always be my favorite Fox. I've never been big on the Fox droptops either, with one exception...the "7UP" cars. I don't know if it is the colour combo or what, but they look really sharp. The T-top coupes are very rare. There used to be an '82 (I think) coupe around here with a carb'd turbo 4cyl and T-tops...cool car.

That would be a GLX rare car.

I was one of those guys that were on the anti swap with the facias on the 4eyed foxbodied stangs LOL!
They are finally earning the respect they deserve. It took time though. Sometimes i wish i kept my old '85 GT.

Believe it or not, just LX (not GLX...I think '84 was the last year for that). It was a 5-speed car, so it had the 4bbl carb and roller cam instead of the nasty and gutless throttle body F.I. that came with the automatics for that year. Rare car indeed...I didn't find out just how rare until after I traded it. It turns out that it was an SSP Mustang that did some service with the RCMP. Canadian SSP cars are extremely hard to come by, and the '85-'86s are almost unheard of. Traded it for a '68 Firebird back in '95 and I've regretted it ever since. Finding out about the SSP part later was like a boot in the nuts.
