    I love it, but I'm not in CA. that and I'm tight on cash and space right now. If I had the cash, did not have two EXPs and was in CA I'd be all over it.
    I hope you find a buyer for it.

    I paid $10K USD (drive away price, mind you), for a 1985GT in January 1985. It had a lot of options though.

    You should really indicate somewhere in the ad that it has a manual transmission.

    in 1985 you could buy has many has you wanted escort gt in mint or close to mint condition but now 30 to 40 years ago not so much. I have had 3 offers of 5000$ and I told them no.

    I was going to say something like this. But not everyone knows 80s GTs only had manual 4/5speeds.

    My 1985GT had an automatic transmission. Now the GT turbo was only available with a manual transmission, but regular GT was available with an automatic transmission. I drove one from January 1985 to October 1995.

    Detailed specifications shown here:
    https://www.automobile-catalog.com/...a_1gen/escort_usa_1gen_gt_hatchback/1985.html
    Shows specs for a 1985GT 1.6L automatic.

    They were rare. Mine had a sunroof, power door locks, and roof console, making it even rarer.

    why in your right mind would you buy a automatic Escort GT??????

    I still see in my Mitchell on demand that there is no automatic for a Escort GT
