This example is only one of 993 Mustang GT Convertibles made in 1983, has been lovingly stored in garages and it has fewer than 8,200 original miles!This particular example (VIN code P27) was made in Ford's Dearborn, Michigan factory (VIN code F) on June 30, 1983 and shipped by rail to the Milwaukee, Wisconsin district sales area (DSO 43) on July 28, 1983, where it was delivered to Schmerler Ford in Racine, Wisconsin and sold on October 6, 1983.It left the factory with the following options - intermittent wipers, Traction-Lok rear differential, Michelin P200/55R-390 TRX blackwall tires, TRX aluminum wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt column, cruise control, power steering, power brakes with front discs, power windows, air-conditioning, AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and Premium sound (code 7), tinted glass and GT and Light Group packages.The black paint (code 1C) and silver trim are in overall excellent order, a reflection of the garage-kept environment this car has been stored in when not driven. The black, power-folding convertible top (code A) is in a condition similar to the paint and trim. Based on its treatment for the past 36 years, the car's body is predictably solid and straight, its engine bay is very tidy, the battery appears new and the body-colored bumpers fit well and look great.As noted above, this car retains its original Michelin TRX radials, size 220/55R-390 all around and each one is mounted on original "triangle" TRX aluminum wheels. The wheels are in excellent order and evoke early '80s charm while the tires are in good, original order.Under the hood with a power bulge is Ford's 5.0L High-output V-8 with Holley four-barrel carburetor and a new intake manifold (code F). Mated to this motor are a five-speed manual transmission and a 3.08:1 rear end with Traction-Lok (code Z). Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power steering, power brakes with discs in front, tilt column, cruise control and power windows.Inside, the vinyl front buckets and rear bench seats with cloth seating surfaces are all in very good condition (code FA), as is the black carpet and leather-wrapped, four-spoke steering wheel. The instrument panel has a full array of gauges and looks great, as do the inner door panels. The center console looks good and has the central warning system for things like burned-out taillights or low fuel level. An AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and Premium Sound (code 7), rounds out the interior.While most of the Mustang was carried over in late 1982 for 1983, there were some changes and improvements on the then five-year-old "Fox-platform" model. The front fascia was restyled with a more rounded nose and reshaped grill. New, wider horizontal taillights with dedicated amber turn signals replaced the vertical sectioned units. This was also the first Mustang to the use the "Blue Oval" Ford emblem on the exterior, front and rear.Convertible competition to this Mustang in 1983 included Chevrolet's Cavalier, Dodge's 400/600, Mercury's Capri, Pontiac's 2000 Sunbird, Toyota's Celica and Volkswagen's Rabbit Cabrio.Documentation includes original owner's manual, original warranty information, original operation guide, most of the original window sticker, original motor vehicle purchase contract copy, Marti reports, original convertible top instructions, original convertible dust top cover instructions and copy of CARFAX report.This Mustang is perfect for Fox-body fans, Ford collectors or for those between 45 and 55 who remember these cars when they were in middle or high school.
