    This post will likely get moved. Either way, nothing whatsoever about that interior is "factory". Sport interior did not arrive in an LX (hatch or coupe) until 1990. This is not the unicorn someone is advertising. Also there was no grey fabric in any form in 1983. Black yes but not grey. If you are serious, have the seller provide a picture of the door and buck tags that will clearly show what interior the car came with.

    That doesn't mean the car is not worth buying. But it's just a fact that this is not factory is all. Post up the rest of the details and what they are asking. (and again, this is going to get moved probably) and we will chime in.

    Alright, going to edit this. the RECARO interior was available in many models from '79-82. But this is not a '79-82 and these seats are clearly not Recaro. Ford didn't call the Recaro option the "sport" interior either.

    Well you are good then. It will show what interior the car came with. If he wants to sell it, he will provide it to you.

    I would be shocked to learn that an 83 coupe could be ordered with a sport interior but it does look like an interesting car.

    Ford called those seats "Sport Performance" in the 1983 Mustang and "Sport" in the 1983 Capri. The seat code was "H". They were a regular production option in all models in 1983 except the Mustang L and Capri L. They were available in cloth only that model year.

    The 1983 Sport seats carried over into the 1984 model year, minus headrest netting. About half way through the 1984 model year (Feb/Mar timeframe) the name changed to "Articulated Sport" in the Mustang and "Functional Sport" in the Capri, and the seat code changed to "P". They were again a regular production option in all models except the Mustang L and Capri GS, but they were standard in the SVO (seat codes "L" or "M") and G.T.350. Again they were available in cloth only in LX/GT/RS, but they were available in either cloth (code "L") or leather ("M") in the SVO.

    In 1985 and 1986 models years the seats were called "Articulated Sport" in both model lines and they were no longer optional in the LX hatchback, and were now standard in the GT and RS. Leather (seat code "G") was optional in LX and GT convertibles but without the 'halo' headrest.

    They could technically be special ordered in 'base' models ever year (1983 L, 1984 L/GS, 1985-86 LX hatch/GS). In those cases they would have a six-digit 'special order' DSO, maybe just for the seats but usually for more than that. Some base models actually were orders with Sport seats...think Saleen and ascMcLarens.

    So mick, you are saying that this coupe is correct in having sport performance interior? Awesome!!!!!! And i know the material pattern may not be correct, but would it have been like the anny cars all red like that?
