This 1983 Ford Mustang GLX convertible is an exceptionally original one-family owned convertible. It represents a low-mileage survivor drop-top that's not only a loaded A/C machine, but also it's quite significant in the Mustang's history. So it's amazing you can get a classic like this for such an affordable price.
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. We're told this is a one-family owned vehicle that was purchased only about an hour from our dealership. In fact, it still has the Ford dealer tag on the rear. That's the kind of original details you get on a cherished survivor. The Medium Red paint even shows the right signs that it's the original applied at the Michigan factory. The application is complete, and the white pinstripe even coordinates with the white convertible top. The presentation is no longer perfect. Instead, it wears its age with pride, and that's what helps tell this car's unique story.
The GLX was about being an upper-class convertible, and this one shows that role inside. The bright red has a distinct look against the exterior's deeper tones. And it has nice features like plush velour seats (always handy on a convertible) and wood-like trim. It's a loaded car, and it really continues the time capsule feel with all the right features, including the center console, AM/FM/cassette stereo, cruise control, power locks, and the tilt wheel that gives you a good view of the original speedo and tach. Plus, power windows and a power convertible top make it easy to open this one up to the world without leaving the driver's seat. And you can enjoy this feeling even in the summer thanks to cold-blowing factory air conditioning.
The engine bay has a crisp, clean, and preserved look to show off the 3.8-liter V6. We already know potent V8 power fits under the hood nicely here, but that's not the attitude this one has. It's a great classic cruiser with a story to tell, and so the V6 makes that even more distinctive. Especially since this looks crisp and clean from a life that has averaged under 1,200 miles annually. But we also know you're going to add to the odometer on this one. After all, they made it easy to enjoy this one with features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a true survivor that's also a loaded pony car. So if you want a cool cruiser that also lets you talk about your car when you arrive, you know this deal is irresistible. Call now!
