1983 Ford Mustang GLX

This 1983 Ford Mustang convertible strikes a perfect balance between originality and the right upgrades, all at an unbeatable price. After all, the factory-correct red-on-white is a great combination, and everyone loves a numbers-matching 5.0 V8 with under 60k original miles. But when that powerplant has been enhanced and so has the suspension, well then, this is your perfect open road companion.This is a pivotal year for the Mustang. 1983 marked the return of the convertible, and at nearly double the price of the base coupe, these are a rare sight today, especially preserved this well. You can instantly tell that this drop top has been treated with care for over three decades. We believe most of the paint is original, which is quite interesting that the Bright Red paint still retains the kind of luster to live up to its name. On the other hand, a white convertible top was never supposed to last this long, so thankfully, it has been replaced with a new pristine unit. It does a great job of coordinating with the white pinstripe that starts at the headlights and runs all the way around the car. Speaking of seamless integration, the dark rub strip that hugs the entire body is a great distinguishing characteristic when it is as straight and complete as this one. But this isn't a pure factory machine. There have been investments in upgrades, and it gives the first hint with the newer Mustang five-spoke alloy wheels.When it comes to convertibles, the interior is often as important as the exterior. After all, when you lower the power folding top, you get to share the inside with the world. That's where the white interior really makes an impact. It has a boldness that radiates from the red exterior to make it distinct while still coordinating. Much of the main pieces remain stock, including the center console, wood paneling, AM/FM stereo, as well as the original speedo and tach. But you can instantly spot the driver-oriented upgrades. The grippy sports steering wheel and Hurst short throw shifter means your hands get the real treats in this droptop.You'll love lifting the hood at car shows because this 58k mile, 5.0-liter V8 perfectly blends the car's original-but-upgraded attitude. So, you'll revel in telling people that beneath all those shiny components is the original numbers-matching motor. But more than just looking great, this V8 was upgraded for power, too. It includes a new Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and BBK headers. That enhancement feeds a 2.5-inch H-pipe dual exhaust with Flowmasters, so you know this beast has a wicked rumble. You get complete control over this enhanced powerplant thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. And speaking of control, there has also been a solid investment in roadholding. This includes new KYB shocks & struts, Eibach springs, new front control arms and bushings, Steeda bump steer kit, new rear sway bar link, and Maximum Motorsports rear control arms. Add in power steering, front disc brakes, and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires, and you soon realize this will be your new favorite to toy for the backroads.Here's a classic convertible that's upgraded where you most want it, but original where it counts. It even comes with documentation such as the warranty card, owner's manual and maintenance records. So when you get this much for such a little price, you know you have to be quick to take home this deal. Call today!!
