Does anyone know how many Mustang GL's were produced in 1982?  Mine was red with black vinyl interior, t-tops, coupe with a 6 cyl.   I have been looking for one like it to purchase and can find none.

82 mustang...

there is a web site posted on another forum that i have used many times to find cars...



here is the nationwide link

http://carpricegraph.com/usa/ford/mustang#sort=year

today i only see ONE 1982 mustang on this search..

it could be listed in a different way that did not get picked up...

best of luck in your search...

one thing about the 81, 82 83 model fox bodies..  if you get one that has been tampered with.. where the vacuum hoses were moved all over the place..  they can be hard to get right..  as info is skimpy..

hi i hope that you get this...

for mustang fox bodies...    79 to 93 or so...

the 1987 to 1993 cars are FAR SUPERIOR to the earlier 79 to 85 models..   ford and the ENTIRE automotive industry was in a learning phase on first going to electronic engine controls.. then to port fuel injection..    by 1987 models. they got the learning curve right.. and the cars are probably some of the best ford made...    this is just my opinion as one who has to work on them..

the outsides of the cars are mostly identical except for the grill and taillights.. its the electronics that improved...

Thanks for all the info.  I will keep that in mind.  I am going to build a drag car, so hopefully some of the original issues won't be a problem for me.
Thanks again for the info.

ford drag cars...

if i were to build a fox body drag car from the early 80s late 70s...

i would go for the 78 79 fairmont futura  mercury zepher..  as all the mustang parts fit.. and you have much lighter bumpers..

you could replace the 5 pound bumper shocks with tube and plate substitutes..  there is nothing better than starting with a flyweight already.. .

that is if you could find a clean one..

but thats just me..

best of luck...

there are 4 ford specific magazines on this site..
