HAs anyone ever seen one of these. It was a convertable with a 2.3 turbo and was supposedly the fastest engine option in 1985. I read about the car at the book store. Anybody have one? Seems Like an oddity Carrol had a fit so for ended production.

and it wasn't a fact Mr Shelby was about to sue Ford for using the '350' and strip..they made a deal.the 20th Ann.Mustang also came in a 5.0...saw a very nice one last year at a local show in the Spring for sale asking $5200...

"Offered as a hatchback and convertible with either 2.3L turbo four or 5.0 V8,the limited Edition '84 1/2 model featured Oxford White paint with a red "G.T. 350" lower body side stripes"

Yep, my first Mustang was an 84 5.0 20th car. I bought it new off the dealership floor for (Get ready this is going to hurt) $11,700. Yes this was dealer cost, sticker was $15,200, a good friend of the family owns a large Ford dealership. (BTW, anyone want large item Ford parts (Like blocks and heads) let me know, I can get a GOOD deal)

It was a nice car, went through 3 rear ends and 7 T-5's. This was when Ford had the "If we repair it, its warrentied for life" policy so it didn't kill me. And believe it or not I was really easy on the thing, honest. The car was delivered to me with 2 teeth missing out of the ring gear.

Ended up putting a 4.11 9" from Currie in it. (I had to be one of their first customers, the entire rear end, housing, center section, 31 spline axles, and so on was $600, my how times have changed) A new cam and intake, long tube headers and it went ok.

Wish I still had that car but it was WAY before quality was job 1 at Ford.

I had one also, with T-Tops. I sold it a year later and still made some money on it. It only had about 1200 miles on it at the time. One of our race team members Kevin Smith, also has one in his family. His dad Rich bought a new one when I did and he still has it. It is a show car with 800 miles on it. Neat stuff but actually belongs with the Fox guys. Alex
