    Do you know the cutoff date for the 4-speeds?? Or was it a mid year thing?

    Well, here is a knowledge nugget over at yahoo ascMclaren goup:

    http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/...n/message/2342

    Quoted:
    In 1983, the 5 speed was a mid year change over when T5s became available.
    I've seen RS's come with 4 speeds and 5 speeds depending on the date of
    manufacture in 1983. In 1984 the 4 speed was a "delete/credit" option I
    believe. You could delete the 5 speed and get a 4 speed and some credit.

    As far as I know, no GSs in 84 got the air dam unless someone added it
    after the factory, and there were no 5.0 GS cars in 84. In 85 there were
    some, in 86 that's all there was...unless you got the car from Canada and
    then you could get an RS.

    Yeah,what he said!So,you couldnt get a RS/GS,right?All RS's had the air dam front end,and ....all 86's with 5.0's were GS's ...But..my 999 letter says its a RS,and the car says GS...HAHAHA

    I also have an 83 RS 5.OL 5speed. From what I have read, it was a mid year switch from the 4speed. My car was made in September of 83 and has the 5speed. So the switch must have been pre Sept

    As far as worth, I would say its priceless
