    Default 1983 Mustang GT Convertible

    1983 Mustang GT Convertible, 5.0L 5-spd, 19,938 miles, 1 owner for 35yrs.
    This is my 3rd fox body, I sold my 83 RS Capri widebody to a fellow FEP member a couple years ago, then I bought a Notch and enjoyed that for a while. Then I was on the hunt for a CLEAN 4 eyed convertible to turn into a pro touring car and purchased this one.
    A friend mentioned to me that it would be a shame to modify this car since it was original and a low production car, so I figured this would be the place where it would be appreciated the most.

    I have most of the original owners paper work including warranty cards, CarFax, and ordered a Deluxe Marti report w/production stats which I have not received as of yet.

    Everything works on the car with exception of the A/C which does not blow very cold. It starts, runs and drives like a new 1983 car should.

    Here are a few pictures, I have many and can take pictures of specific areas on request.

    Price is $12,500 OBO and I will consider a trade plus cash for your CLEAN 83-86 convertible project, GT/LX/GLX 4cyl/6cyl/v8 engine/trans and paint not important but body must be CLEAN.Name:  3.jpg

    Man its gorgeous! I'm glad you didn't modify this gem, I bet there aren't many black / red interior 83 GT convertibles around.

    Good luck with sale, someone is going to be a very happy owner of this beauty!

    I would really like to see the original door tag. The image on the Marti report doesn't have many codes.

    The build sheet could be any where, or no where, in the interior. I don;t know that you would want to tear apart the interior of this low-mile beauty to find it, if it even exists.

    No problem, I'll take a pic of the door tag this weekend, only picture that I currently have is not very clear.
    As far as the build sheet, I would rather not take a chance of breaking any plastic interior parts looking for it.

    I see by your Marti report your car and mine, (also a 1983 Mustang gt vert) were built 5 days apart.

    I understand you would not want to take the interior apart to find a build sheet. Thanks for posting what you have so far. When you get a pic of the other tags and sticker this weekend please also snap a larger pic of the owner card and warranty card. Thanks.

    I went ahead and listed the car on eBay, and to my horror the "Auto Check by Experian" report which is like a CarFax that is automatically provided by eBay and they have it incorrectly being stated that it is a GLX instead of a GT, apparently they do not know the difference. I 100% guarantee that it is an original GT, I have the buck tag and Deluxe Marti report, I will now order the window sticker from Marti as well.

    My Experian auto check also showed my 83 gt vert to be a glx it is wrong as is yours they are both GT'S. Lucky for me the po had the original window sticker. You can trust the buck tag and the Marti Report! Good luck on your sale, your car may very well be the best 83 Mustang GT vert around.

    A few questions for the 83 GT folks/experts. Is the black steering wheel correct? Thought it would be red perhaps? Also, the GT over the glove box? Is the GT striping on the hood correct? Thanks so much.

    All of those items are correct.

    That makes me feel a little better for sure, thank you.

    Auto history reports designate the 'model' by what's in the VIN. Since P27F can be GLX or GT they go with the "base" model, which is GLX.

    High bid on E-bay was $8,600. did not meet reserve. I would have thought higher for what looks like very nice car with less than 20,000 miles.

    Convertible’s are a tough sale & it seems lately the only ones buying these cars are dealers and flippers thinking they are going to make a big profit.
