    Default 1983 GT Vert Info

    Iím looking at this 83 and was wondering how rare it is? Value? Has 30k miles and recaro interior that I couldnít find any info on. Is it missing the hood scoop? Same owner last 20 years.


    Thanks for any information!

    From what I can tell almost everything is original and the mileage should be correct.

    It’s kind of hard to tell. Th3 pictures don’t do it justice.
    Non original, radiator cap, red battery cable looks ou5 of place, strange round thing on door (speaker?), wheels.

    A good clean convertible should start about $10k.

    Front and rear seats are not original. If it is a 1983 GT the dash bezels and hood are not original. If it is instead a 1984 GT then the dash bezels and hood would be original. Need more info.

    It's a 83 5.0 convertible but it's not a GT. That interior color combination wasn't available for the GT. Black interior wasn't available in 84. It has some 84 interior items but the horn on the turn signal lever gives it away as an 83.

    Opal/Black interior was available in 1983 GT, INT TRIM code "CW" on the door tag. The front and rear seats were white vinyl and the front seats were low-back. The upper door panels and upper interior quarter trim was also white. Everything else was black.

    Yes, I have a 83 GLX with this interior. As I recall, its not shown in the sales brochure as an option for the GT model.

    I may have spoken too soon when I said is was available. I will check to see if I have any tags or sheets with Opal and Black or Red interior for any 1983 GT convertibles, INT TRIM code "CW" (Opal/Black) or "CN" (Opal/Red).

    Wow, nice catch on the horn I did not notice that! I have also never seen the black trim around the headlights on a 83 gt but it could be a repaint?

    Ah yes, the "infamous" raccoon eyes. I don't know that anyone has officially documented it as far as a code but Mick will no doubt have an update. I have an original 83 GT that does not have the painted black trim but Mick's has also has a 83 GT and his does have the painted black trim- and would you believe that the cars were built on the exact same day. It seems like there was not rhyme or reason to which cars got the raccoon treatment. My car is the same color as yours but I think his is/was bright red. Several cars in the 83 Mustang Sale Brochure show the raccoon eyes but not on any of the GT's. I have seen them on original GT cars but I don't know how anyone would document it as a leaving the factory that way.
