This is my 1986 LX Coupe with T-tops. I have had this for 4 years slowly building it. It was originally built to handle my 600hp 418w, which was briefly in it, but never on the road. I have sold the big engine and TKO600 and tuned the drivetrain down, the rest of the system is setup to hold some power. This car is titled as a 2.3 5-speed, which it originally was. 116k on the chassis per Carfax (which I can provide). I had a donor 86 5.0 that I replaced every wire into this car. This is a factory no option car. No A/C, no power locks, nothing. I did add power windows when I was building it, I prefer not to lean over to roll down the passenger window. You can change the heater core in this car by simply opening the glove box (which I did, itís new as well). I did replace the floor pans, typical t-top issue, welded them in and seam sealed. The entire underside was then undercoated. The car was then soda blasted, and painted 2011 Kona Blue. There is no rust on this chassis now. There is some oxidation on the aluminum and iron parts (k-member, rack and pinion etc) from time sitting in my concrete shop, could easily come off if desired. Thatís the only things worth mentioning, other than the abundance of upgrades this car has. Hereís a brief list from the top of my head.
Body : 1986 T-top coupe, last year made, VERY few made. Never wrecked. Paint is Kona Blue (2011 GT500). Paint is 8/10, my body man is going to buff it in two weeks. It will be a 9/10 then I would assume. Cervini cowl hood, fiberglass deck lid. Fenders are 91+ and extensions are custom, to fit larger 17Ē-18Ē wheels. LED headlights.
Interior : GT style seats with new black leather upholstery. All interior is original black (from an 84 or with 90+ pieces). Rare 140 mph speedometer, ABS plastic headliner board (expensive, not cheap cardboard), new package tray, black pony floormats, new CD/MP3/Aux/USB radio with all new speakers and wired for a subwoofer if so desired. Rare A/C deleted dash bezel. Brand new black dash pad.

Subframe connectors with seat braces. Flaming River manual rack and steering shaft.
Wheels : Original wheels from my 03 Cobra, with like new 295/50/17s in the rear, and I believe 235s in the front.
Misc : 4-row aluminum radiator with aluminum cover. Focus fan with temperature control on a relay. Headlights on relays also. New battery, relocated to trunk. Every piece of weatherstripping on this car is new. 255 LPH Walbro pump (Iíve had this same pump support 676 rwhp, so is good for a lot more than this car is make at the moment).
