Classic Car Overview

This is a factory original TRUE 1984 Mustang GLX Convertible. Ford dropped the GLX after the 1983 model year, however, creative dealers were able to customize the order forms and manage to create a GLX Mustang Convertible in 1984 (until Ford got wise and stopped building the customized orders). The GLX was more desireable because it combined the slightly lighter LX Mustang with the GT Performance and Trim package ... Basically getting a Mustang GT that performed better than a stock Mustang GT. As you can see from the Ford Research Department build sheet that I have included, this was correctly built and sold as a Mustang GLX.
The original dealer custom ordered this Mustang for his Brother-In-Law. When his he decided to sell the car, he sold it back to the dealer, and the car spent several lonely years sitting in the showroom and seldom driven. I purchased the car in the fall of 2011, and have enjoyed it since. Unfortunately, I have limitations that are now making it more difficult for me to drive an older style manual transmission and the associated "heavy" clutch. I have been wrestling with selling the GLX for the past few years, but was hoping for physical improvement. Now that I know that I am at maximum improvement, and still have difficulties, I know that I have to sell the GLX.
This is an original car except for the rims. The original rims were the TRX metric rims, and the tires are no longer available in the United States, so the rims were swapped to the 10-Hole Mustang rims from a 1985 Mustang GT. The rims are period correct rims that will accept modern tires to keep the car driveable. It does have the 302CID High Output Engine mated to the Warner T-5 5-Speed Manual Transmission. The car has never seen snow, has always been garaged when not in use (heated garage since I bought it), always run premium grade 100% gasoline (no 10%-Ethanol blended gas), and has been meticulously maintained. Everything works (including the original Premium Stereo Cassette with the under-dash amplifier), the A/C blows ice-cold (has never been cracked, and still has R-12 in it). I even have the original Canyon Red bag for the Convertible Top Tonneau Cover.
The car runs and drives great, gets incredible fuel economy for the era (20+ MPG in town, 25-29 MPG on the highway depending on the top up or down), and really turns heads. It is hard for me to part with this beautiful "Four-Eyed Fox," but I have to face reality now. I just hope you will take care of it and enjoy it as I have for the past 13-Years!
I have priced the car as I did because I could not find a listing on NADA or KBB for a 1984 Mustang GLX Convertible. Hagerty appraised it at $12,500 (in the same price range as the Mustang GTs), though I believe they appraise high so they can justify the higher prices they charge for the insurance. 1984 Mustang GTs are averaging $9,500-$11,500 right now, so I split the difference. I believe that is a fair asking price for a Mustang with a rare equipment package. I am now lowering the price to the bottom end of the average because i really want this car to go to a good home ... Someone who will be able to enjoy it this summer. I really can't bear to see it sit for another winter in my garage. It is hard enough for me to see it every day and not be able to drive it. At least I got a decade of fun and almost 12k miles of smiles out of it before my legs gave out ... Now it's your turn to smile and enjoy it!
