Just bought an 85 Turbo Coupe for $900 in pretty good shape. Engine, T5 and suspension feel like they did back in 85. Has a bit of cancer below rear glass which will be dealt with swiftly and the interior door panels need some serious work and have missing pieces but carpet is as good as new with no discoloration. Seats are good with only some discoloration, nothing that some paint dye won't cure. Build date is 2 1985 so its not an early 85 model. I noticed some weird things (to me) about the car.
1 - No Power locks
2 - No Power seats
3 - Radio is old style with knobs
4 - Trim on molding all around car is chrome colored like 84s not red trimmed like 85 and up
5 - No "TURBO COUPE" lettering in said molding

Is this a normal combination for an 85?

Not normal if all original, and looks like it is.

Was wondering if maybe they did a Comp Prep like they did with the SVO?
