Is it an 86 or an 85?

I was looking at a nice old 86 (or 85) Aries today. I'm not sure of the mileage because of the 5 digit odometer, but the body is solid, hardly a rust spot on it anywhere. It's been sitting since 2007 but the guy moves it around his yard whenever he mows the grass. It needs a good heavy duty cleaning on the body (moss growing on it lol), a flex pipe and some brake work on the rear left wheel. Being 8 years older than my 94 Spirit, it's in much better shape, mechanically and body-wise. The guy says it's an 86, but it's got a carburetor and 4 bolt wheels. I thought they all got fuel injection in 86? My old 86 Lebaron had fuel injection and 5 bolt wheels too I think. He's asking 700 but is readily open to offers. Check out the ad for it (I see it now says the car is an 85).

Chrysler brand went EFI in 1984. Dodge and Plymouth K-cars did it as a running change in 1985. Trucks got EFI in 1987 1/2. Omni /Horizon got it for 1988.
