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.
