Posted 4/11/2016 by Phillip Perez

Do you ever find yourself searching for the factory specs on your 1983 Ford Mustang? If so you have definitely come to the right place!

1983 was an eventful year. Ford offered the Mustang in convertible for the first time since '73 and four trim packages became available! The 5.0L was one step closer to redefining the modern Pony Car while and EFI turbo option became available as well. A new Borg Warner T-5 and 3.27 ratio replaced the 3.08 rear end and old SROD 4-speed.
