    Yes, No A/C. & I forgot about the door tag. They did mention the car was listed for sale a couple years back, but I assumed it was on Craigslist. Pretty cool that you have that archived.

    Ford did some odd sticker packages, and I'm not sure they show on the door or buck tags. Mine had a sticker package, with Ford part numbers, from new. Dealer added, I'm sure, but still---

    Just a comment on the side stripe. I feel like maybe under the brushed on red paint the PO primed it. With something like that sticker package, it would be more beneficial to do a silver accent stripe in vinyl like the larger piece then to paint on a silver stripe there after at the dealer.. Vinyl tape is not receptive to paint at all. Anyone in the industry would have known that. It will have a chemical reaction and lift. Any paint, eventhough it worked in this case, would have been a novice decision, no insult intended.

    I personally like these throwback modifications, it certainly sets the mood for the 1980's. If it's salvageable, I would try to remove all the red (and silver) to keep just the black vinyl tape in tact. Then give it a while to determine if you want to add back anything the correct way.

    I kind of dig those stripes. I remember seeing a few 82-83 GT's with those back in the late 80s. They work really well visually with three piece spoilers. I would try to salvage it if you can.
