(5 photos of a 1983 Red Mustang GLX Convertible) Red 1983 Mustang GLX convertible owned by Robert Hernandez from Miami, Florida. This is our featured Attitude Of The Week for the week starting March 12, 2018. Robert tells us more, "I purchased this 1983 Mustang convertible with a 5.0 engine with 69,000 original miles. The interesting thing about it, that it has a 4 speed not 5 speed. The car is all original with matching numbers and it is in excellent condition. I purchased it a year ago from someone who garaged it. When researching the history, the car was purchased in 83 but never registered until 1990s. I'm trying to find out how rare if any, this car is for having a T4."

The body will be painted 2010 Cadillac Black Cherry with the frame in dark metal flake gray. Chuck tells us more, "It is being turned into a street strip terror. Power comes from two 63mm T3/4 turbos on a well prepped 1990 stock bore 302. Aiding the induction is a C/S Carb blow thru setup. Mallory and Accecel supply the fire. Handling the teeth jarring shifts is a Performance automatic with hardened shafts plus a Trans brake. Coupling the power is a Continental 4,500 rpm stall. This is all held in place with front and mid engine plates. The full channel frame keeps things from twisting to the 4-link narrowed 9 inch coil over rear end. Tube K-member, steering, and front coil overs keep her light on the front end. When it comes to stopping, disc all the way around by Strange Bros. To keep me safe, a 10-point chrome molly cage is in place. Aero motive A1000 and a Holly Blue supply the GO juice." Chuck also owns a 1988 Mustang LX 5.0L convertible and his wife has a 1964 Mustang hardtop.
