The year 1986 opened with the tragedy of the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion before our eyes. It was one of those moments where you never forget where you were when it happened. President Reagan was in the White House, and Mike Tyson was the youngest heavyweight champion after beating Trevor Berbick. There was plenty of strife around the world, but the majority of us were more worried about perfecting our mullet in time for the Motley Crue or Ozzy Osbourne concert, while the women among us were killing the ozone layer one bottle of Aqua Net at a time.

Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA

Real, Unrestored, and Rare 1967 Ford Mustang GTA It’s a one-of-one optioned vehicle to boot. You read that right. This is a one-of-one 1967 Ford Mustang GTA convertible with the Marti report to back it up. It’s a super rare find and is currently for sale through Shelton Classics in North Carolina for $34,995. It has just 2,182 original miles on the odometer, which means this unique example has its entire life ahead of it. Although most of the first-gen Mustangs featured most of the same design elements, each year received some slight upgrades.

Today we review an 86' Mustang GT , we tell the story behind this car and how it drives! New to the foxbody Mustang game?

Check out the new 2015 Mustang GT with your two favorite time travelers, Dr. Emmit McNeill Brown and Marty Mayer McFly!

Going Back To The Future With Our New 1986 Mustang GT © Hot Rod Network Staff This what we started with under the hood. The battery was done, so it had to be jump started for us to drive it. It ran fine on the twenty-mile ride home, and even the cruise control worked. All the gauges worked, and the T-5 shifted fine, albeit with a ridiculously stiff clutch. The battery terminals had seen better days and the spark plug wires were way overkill, but also damaged in a couple areas. An Explorer intake is a welcome addition, as are the shorty headers, off-road H-pipe, and Flowmaster exhaust. We will surely address the janky air intake, but it will do the job for now.

In the Mustang world, hardcore performance seemingly took a hit with the introduction of EFI across the brand. The carburetor was gone, and in its place an electronic fuel injection system. Hot rodding was over, some shouted. We have the benefit today of hindsight, so we know it wasn't true, but plenty of those factory EFI intakes and throttle-bodies were pitched in favor of carbureted setups. Maybe it was because the 1986 GT was rated at 200 horsepower when the 1985 GT with a carburetor was rated at 210. Losing 10 horsepower, most people pointed at the EFI, and at that time, most people still knew their way around a carburetor.

Grab This Survivor 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible

Grab This Survivor 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible Cruising with the top down in this vintage favorite is like a dream come true. Few cars elicit the same level of excitement as the Ford Mustang. From the brash styling to the in-your-face performance, the iconic pony car appeals to a broach range of people. This 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible is especially compelling, considering it hasn’t been outfitted with crazy mods or cosmetic changes, sticking closely to its original appearance and feel. A vintage burgundy coat of paint doesn’t have any large flaws, plus it shines up to a nice mirror-like finish.

Back to the Future is a 1985 American science fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It stars Michael J. Fox as teenager Marty McFly

Picked up a 1986 GT that was a completely stock, one owner car. Got a go pro for christmas, so I decided to make a little video with it.

Going Back To The Future With Our New 1986 Mustang GT © Hot Rod Network Staff These are the parts we used to get our 1986 Mustang GT fully operational. We decided to stick with one manufacturer and get everything from the Duralast line, including a battery, distributor cap and rotor, spark plug wires, and a fuel filter. Prior to adding these parts, the engine had an upper rpm miss. With the new ignition components, it’s still not a rocket ship according to today’s standards, but it runs much better.

These days, we actually prefer EFI, which is good because our latest acquisition still maintains its electronic fuel injection system, and with an improved Explorer intake. We know what you're saying, first impressions are the most important, and we're sure you're starting to question our choice, but if you've followed the Fox Mustang market recently, then you know finding a decent car for under $5,000 has become terribly difficult. Plus, this one already has a five-lug swap that is complete with old-school Weld Draglites.

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Super Cobra Jet Has Modern Performance

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Super Cobra Jet Has Modern Performance It has the looks to kill and the engine to back it up! In order to revamp the image of the Mustang, Ford gave it a complete restyling for 1969, and the top dog of this newly revamped model was the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Super Cobra Jet. The Mach 1’s livery worked in perfect conjunction with the new lines and longer body that was introduced in 1969. This particular example is one that got the magical 428 cubic-inch engine upgrade, over the stranded 351cid V8, and also gets the goods that come along with the top tier Super Cobra Jet trim. The 428 Super Cobra Jet version was offered as a Drag-Pack option.

When Ford introduced the 1986 Mustang GT with its fuel-injected 5. 0 HO V-8, it marked a The cloth Lear Siegler seats are supportive, from the back to the adjustable side bolsters and thigh supports. In January or February of 1986 , I went down to the Ford dealer. I had looked at Camaros before that

In 1986 , the Mustang GT saw drivetrain including a new 10.5" (from 10") clutch. The 7.5" rear-end was eliminated in V8 models in favor of the stronger V8-powered Mustangs received E7TE heads and forged aluminum pistons with valve reliefs in 1987, as opposed to the flat-tops used in the previous

Going Back To The Future With Our New 1986 Mustang GT © Hot Rod Network Staff After the new ignition components, our four-eye’s engine compartment looks much cleaner, and less busy. The previous spark plug wires were too much, and the black Duralast wires clean up the engine compartment very nicely. Also, the new battery terminals, although an item most of us don’t think about, went from an eyesore to something that no longer sticks out like a sore thumb.

First and foremost, we were able to drive it home, and have driven it around a few times since purchasing the car. Yes, some of it looks worse than other parts, but as a whole, the car is solid, and ripe for a rebuild.

First things first, we wanted to get it running reliably. Yes, we drove it home, but it needed a battery and a few tune-up items replaced. A short trip to AutoZone for a new Duralast battery, distributor cap and rotor, spark plug wires, and a fuel filter, and we were in business. However, while removing the battery, one of the battery terminal bolts broke in half, so back to AutoZone we went for new battery terminals. Once we had everything installed, the '86 runs like a top, and we feel like we can drive it anywhere.

Supercharged ’65 Mustang Is A Faster Horse

Supercharged ’65 Mustang Is A Faster Horse This Ford has been pushed well beyond its factory setup. What’s truly compelling about any muscle car is the performance first, then looks. That’s the order of what makes this 1965 Ford Mustang an amazing find. It prioritizes going fast, but doesn’t neglect the importance of looking good when parked. That kind of a balance between show and go is unique. That cowl induction hood hints this is not your average ’65 Mustang. It’s hiding a rebuilt 347ci stroker engine with a twin-screw supercharger strapped on, cramming more air into the cylinders for a greater burn.

Although visually, the 1986 Mustang GT was nearly identical to the 1985 GT , under the hood was a completely different story. Replacing the tried and true 4V carburetor was a sequential multiple-port fuel injection system perched atop a revised 302 HO V8 block.

We bought a new mustang that we are going to pick some parts off to finish our Mustang gt build and possibly a new build with Cummins swap in the future .

Going Back To The Future With Our New 1986 Mustang GT © Hot Rod Network Staff The interior of the car could be original. It’s not in terrible shape, except for the carpet and visors, but the front seat upholstery and foam could use replacing. The gauges work, even the warning lights under the radio function properly. Like we mentioned earlier, the cruise control even works, but unfortunately, the A/C does not. Living in Florida, we need to get that figured out right away. We had to add a new fuse to get the dome light working, and we need a new map light. The dash is all cracked up, but we’re sure the dash cover gave that away. The side mirror cover plates are missing, the stereo wasn’t properly wired, and the passenger side door doesn’t open from the outside. The more we talk about the interior the worse it gets, but the stereo is now properly wired, only now we need to get speakers for it. With any build, fixing one problem usually brings another issue to light. However, we plan to keep crossing things off the list, and getting them squared away.

Up next, the clutch needs swapped out in the worst way, the A/C needs repair, it needs new rear tires, the interior needs work, and the elephant in the room, the car is in desperate need of paint. Tim Foreman has the "paint project" look on lock, so we don't want to copy that. As to what color, we have no idea. We plan to take the car to the dragstrip before stripping it for paint, so be prepared to be floored by what it runs. Get out your sun dials.
