The Fox Body Mustang in 1983 brought back the convertible by modifying notchbacks (done by Car and Concepts). 1983 also brought us the first year for the Borg-Warner T5 transmission. The V8’s power increase was attributed to the new 600 CFM Holley carburetor. The hood scoop changed to a rear-facing opening.
