I have a 1983 GLX 5.0 4spd Convert.  It is Dark Academy Blue with Light Academy blue interior with white top.  Car is original except for the 8.8 3.27 Motorsport rear axle.  I blew out the original 7.5.  Car is a parade queen but is starting to show its age.  I would consider selling it to a good respectable home if the price is right.  With 64K miles (original) it should'nt be too difficult.  Reply to the post if interested or want to compare.

yeah, I'd like to see some pics, too. I almost bought a convert '83, b/c they were relatively rare...until it spat oil out the exhaust on my hand during the initial start up.  At least the owner was semi-honest, admitting he wasn't going to bother getting it registered.  No wonder...it wasn't going to pass emissions w/ bad valve guides.

isn't that 4 speed the SROD, the single rail over drive? about as strong as the 7.5 inch rear axle? Still regret not getting that car, but I needed something for driving, not rebuilding. ended up w/ my 86 GT solid roof, can't complain Smile  
Just because you can't do it...doesn't mean its impossible

First of all, for anyone who has a 5spd GLX should not be commenting haha.

I am the proud owner of an '83 GLX convertible, 50, 000 original miles.  Yes it's extremely rare for anyone who knows about the '83 Foxbody GLX 4spd; only about 500 were produced before Ford realized their flub and production was stopped and the 5 speed and automatics were put into production.  

If anyone here happens to own the 4SPEED!!! GLX I would love to talk to you!  I'm trying to find anyone else who owns this rare little car. Smile

I have searched for days to find out if there is any information on a 1983 Ford Mustang GLX hardtop 5.0, also with a 4spd. Does anyone know of where to find anything on this? I can find rare glx convertibles all day but no hardtops. I haven't even found anything that says that they made a glx hardtop.

hello I was wondering, when you said you had the top installed, did you supply the materials and had it done or just had it done. I am undergoing a top replacement myself among a few other things. I rescued this car from being scrapped not really knowing what I gotten my self into. I am looking for the door side moldings and the quarter panels too. have you ever had to replace these items? Ooo

Yes, I have a 4spd 1983 GLX convertible mustang. I might be selling it. It runs. No rust. Needs clutch put in. Interior is great.
