any1 now why my mustang is a 1984 GT #'s matching but yet its a 3.8L? did some one order the gt with a v6? lol that doesnt make much sense to me cause isnt that almost the point of the gt is to have a v8?... idk just let me know if any1 knows anything
are u sure its a gt and not just a misbadged v6?
nope its a gt everything is original. title says its a gt also
Yes they did infact make a 3.8 GT v6 mustang back during the 4-eye fox years. its a 125hp Carb'd 3.8.
your title says GT? my title says ford 2dr coupe.. nothing about it being a GT.
check your vin# it wil tell you if specail order.
i guess i dont now about the carbed part maybe they put EFI in it. i bought it for 700 $ and my cuzin rebuilt the engine... but he said the #s match. it has 30,000 miles on engine and 20,000 on the tranny
the vin will tell if its a v8 or v6,,,, if vin is v8 then some one put the v6 in it after they blowed the v8
The only way it would be a gt and not have a v8 would be a turbo 4 cylinder.In 1983-84 the made a Mustang TURBO GT. They later did many improvements and made the SVO. I believe the 3.8l in 1984 would only be available in the L model and perhaps the LX also but im not sure on that. But if your car is a GT and it has a v6 its either not the original motor or it isnt a GT.
I worked at Ford Dearborn Assembly where we assembled the Mustang. I have seen thousands of Mustangs in all configurations. Ford NEVER put a V-6 in the GT. Somebody made a mistake on the title.
Perhaps #'s were re-stamped to make them match.
Apparently the Fox Body days (which is what the 1984 would be), you could by a 4 Cyl turbo GT, or a 6 cylinder GT, if you didn't want the 8 Cyl GT.
