For Sale: 1983 Ford Mustang in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1983 Ford Mustang GLX Convertible is a one-owner drop-top with a cool color combo, good investments, and desirable features - including the 5.0 V8 and five-speed.


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. You can instantly tell that this is a one-owner garage-kept car with the level of care in the fundamentals. That's why the body panels look so straight, the trim is so complete, and the black paint continues to have a good shine from a respray later in life. The tan convertible top has a stylish look, especially because it does so well with the custom pinstripe running the profile and encircling the body. And those Cobra-like 17-inch wheels have a nice polish to both draw attention to their sporty style as well as give this American classic the right touch of chrome shine.


As good as this looks with the roof in place, you'll like it even more with the top down. After all, the full black-on-black color combo is always attractive in a convertible. This is a highly stock presentation, and that shows good care in places like the upholstery, carpeting, and wood-like trim. You've got desirable features like an armrest center console, classic AM/FM stereo, and a power convertible top. Plus, high-back front bucket seats, a clean steering wheel on a tilt column, full gauges w/large tach makes this a great driver's car.


Under the hood is the classic Ford 5.0-liter V8. This one-owner car has been given the right investment over the years, including an engine replacement/rebuild within the last six years. You've also got the right features today, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an updated aluminum radiator. You get complete control over this V8 thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. It makes for an all-around good drive that includes features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, newer suspension investments, and new sport tires within the last few months.


The sale comes complete with the dealer invoice and owner's manual. This is the distinct Mustang drop-top offered for an affordable price. So you know you don't want to miss this one-owner classic. Call today!!!
