Ok Last night I went to pick up my new rearend for my 95 mustang. In this guys garage He had a 1984 Mustang predator built right in my home town of topeka ks. He also had a 1984 GT350 and a 1979 Mustang pace car. Now im kind of a mustang guru but until last night I had never heard of a mustang predator. I have heard of the other two. So I got home and searched it. They in fact were made right in Topeka KS. THere were only 125 of them made in 1984 and his build number stamped on his was 119. Here is some info on these cars.
