Ah.... A more recent post.

As I just posted in reply to someone else, my '83 FE is red, (only had a choice of red or blue in that year), and generally has the same trim level as the 1500 "S." which was the very top of the line. Dual mirrors, A/C, factory cassette stereo. Cruises all day at 70/80 mph.

And... It only has about 120K on it. I found it at a repair shop in Round Rock TX, (near Austin), and it is virtually rust free. Love that short stroke shifter and the car's handling is great.

I hope within the next year to totally restore it and drive it cross country. At 50+ mpg, that won't break the bank either...
