(1 photo of a 1985 Gray Mustang Hatchback) 1985 Mustang hatchback owned by Jody Leatherman from New Boston, Texas. Jody tells us more, "It was found in a pasture. I paid 50 bucks for her. I removed the 4 cylinder 4 speed and put in a 302 bored with long tube Blackjack headers dumped just in front of rear axle from 18 cherrybombs (it sounds good once throttle is pushed) and paired with a C4 automatic. The interior donated from a 89 GT, front bumper custom made using bumper for a 91. The only parts I ain't got to touch yet are rear quarter panels. The car was a father son project before he grew up and moved. Now its my weekend toy. Still trying to decide the final color scheme. Taking all ideas offered. I am currently looking at the Shadow Gray with flat black striping."

(4 photos of a 1985 Black Mustang Predator Hatchback) Black 1985 Predator Mustang hatchback owned by Daniel Fox from Wichita, Kansas. It has the 5.0L V8 engine and a manual transmission. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting April 8, 2018. The Predator was designed by Tom Soloman and sold at Ford dealers. Daniel had this story to share, "Like most car guys I had never even heard of a Predator Mustang until I discovered one on-line. Of course the curiosity got the best of me, and I had to know more. From there it wasn't long and I had to have one. (This is my 5th Fox-body Mustang by the way and I hopefully not my last) I was fortunate to get to know a couple of great knowledgeable guys on-line in the Predator community, and as luck would have it one of them was the previous owner of our car. He hooked me up with the guy selling the car on eBay; the car was sweet with only 29k original miles. The only catch was it was in Pennsylvania. What! How in the world am I going to purchase a car through eBay all the way up in PA.? No test drive, no putting your hands on the car, no sitting in it. I live in Wichita, KS for cry'in in the night... And the expense of getting the car back to Kansas was really stressing me out. I sure as heck wasn't going to drive it back to Kansas. After days and weeks of talking on the phone, texting and a lot of patience from my wife who was constantly talking me off the ledge. I was able to get the purchase done and get the car shipped from PA. It was one of the most stressful things I've ever done, don't recommend buying a classic that way, but as my wife says I was on a mission. After two days of transport the car arrived on a Saturday late morning and it was like Christmas morning. Yah it was just like that. The car had issues from sitting so much, with only 29k miles on the odometer, you do the math that's a little over 900 miles a year. Run-ability issues, AC didn't work and some of the Predator pkg. accessories had been altered or replaced. So I spent the next year tuning the car and with the help of a gentleman here in Kansas who is an expert in Predators, I was able to get her real close to exactly the way she was when delivered back in 1985. Our car is Serial # S5-0131. The car was produced in Topeka KS. It was sold new at Rusty Eck Ford in Wichita, KS. It is 1 of 135-140 cars with the Predator package in 1985.
And that's how S5-0131 got back to Kansas and this is where she'll stay."
