Description for Ford Mustang 1983

Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car, in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight, in order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree.

The 3rd generation Mustang's were produced from 1978 to 1993. Built on Ford’s legendary 'Fox platform', they evolved through a number of sub-models, trim levels, and drivetrain combinations during its production life. It underwent several changes for 1987 and for a time seemed destined for replacement with a front wheel drive Mazda platform before company executives were swayed by overwhelming consumer excitement and demand to keep the 'Fox' body platform. Enthusiasts group the generation into two segments: the initial 1979-1986 cars, with their quad headlight arrangement and the later 1987-1993 cars with their aero composite headlamped front fascia styling. Production ended with the introduction of the 4th generation Mustang for the 1994 model year.
While most of the original 'Fox bodied' Mustang was carried over into late 1982 for the 1983 year, there were some significant changes and improvements on the then five-year-old 'Fox-platform' model. The front end was restyled with a more rounded nose and a V-shaped grille which resulted in the headlamp openings being revised to follow the grille shape and Ford added a Convertible to the Mustang line for 1983. The majority of these convertibles were equipped with the new 3.8L V6 in GLX form, although 993 5.0L V8 GT models were also produced. The Mustang 5.0L High Output GT received a four-barrel carburetor and a new intake manifold, bringing power to 175hp.
In summary, you will look long and hard to find a finer looking or driving example of this beautiful and very rare legendary 5.0L V8 GT Convertible with only 41K original miles for the ultimate and most likely fastest in it's class of all 1980's American muscle cars! These 3rd generation early year 'Fox bodied' models are now starting to prove quite collectible and desirable amongst Mustang enthusiasts - get in early with this fine GT Convertible example with the very desirable 5 speed manual transmission and with only one family owner since new!
