The G.T. 350, a name made famous in the 60's by Ford and Carroll Shelby, was given new life in March of 1984 with a production run of 5,261 cars. As a result, Mr. Shelby sued Ford Motor Company in April of 1988 for using the stripe and name. This lawsuit was settled in March of 1990 for an un-disclosed amount. The 20th Anniversary option package cost an additional $456 dollars and made the cars perform no better than a normal GT. These cars started out as either a normal 5.0 Liter powered GT or a Turbo GT and then they received a few visual enhancements.
These included :
- G.T. 350 lower body stripes.
- Mustang Tri-Bar badges on front fenders.
- Narrow SVO style door molding.
- Monochrome grille and bumpers.
- A 20th anniversary dash board medallion.
- An owner ordered serial numbered dash plaque.
- Performance Seats
- TRX 390mm wheels (optional).
All the '84 G.T. 350's were Oxford White with Canyon Red interiors, and could be had as a hatchback or convertible. Three drive train options were available for the 1984 G.T. 350. These choices were a turbocharged 2.3 liter four cylinder engine with a five speed manual transmission, a 165 horsepower fuel injected 5.0 liter with an automatic transmission or a 175 horsepower 5.0 liter 4 barrel H.O. with a five speed manual transmission, and 3.08:1 limited slip rearend.
Of the three, the Turbo was reputed to be the quickest of the combinations due to a weight advantage of roughly 500 pounds and a 3.45:1 rearend gear ratio.
