1985 Mustang GT - limited slip?

I'm going to buy a 1985 mustang gt soon and I've been having trouble finding info about this on the internet. Did all 85 GT foxes come with a limited slip differential? Also, what was factory gear in them? Also would it be a 7.5 or 8.8?

Thanks so much!

7.5 and yes you should have a trac lok.

If it needs a rebuild well only time will tell.
