Hi all,
Been looking around for a few days and found some interesting info here. Great site!

I have a 1993 GT Convertible 5 speed that I bought last year from the second owner. At the time of purchase it had 24,790 original miles, it now has 25,116.
The only non original items on the car seem to be the radiator, the battery, wiper blades and filters. Person I bought it from also claims three of the tires are original but I have not decoded the sidewalls to confirm.

Exterior color "EY" Performance Red.
Black top, all black interior with cloth seats. Trim code "DJ"
Should also have a factory cd player but it was replaced sometime with a standard factory cassette player.
If anyone has a 1993 factory cd player for sale please let me know

Thumbs up

WELCOME, PETE!!!
You found what I humbly call the greatest site for these Mustangs! It's been my home since I got my '85 from my late brother back in 2002!
That is a very clean car! That engine bay is restaurant clean!
I hope you keep hanging around and discover the kind of family atmosphere we pride ourselves on.
WELCOME!

Hi Pete,

Welcome to the site!!!

It sounds like you got a great low mileage Mustang GT in original condition. Personally, I prefer them in original condition. The more original they are, the better.

But many people prefer modified ones.

My 1988 Mustang GT is also all original. It has even less mileage than yours.

Welcome.

I do not have an extra cd player for sale, but you can use a cd player from other Ford models. The differences between them are the faceplate, the absence of the storage tray mounting bracket, blue as well as green displays (Fox used green), and possibly the connections on the backside. If the connections match, it will work.

The Fox and early-mid 90s F150 only shared the same faceplate, but the F150 and the rest did not use a storage tray so you will have to swap the mounting bracket from your tape player, or fabricate your own. That bracket is a Fox only piece. I cant find my original tape deck to see if the bottom tray will swap with the cd player (its in a box somewhere), but i dont believe it did. Its been a while.

To remove the tape deck, you will need the proper tools. I use the 'U' shaped tools. Push them in and bend them inwards a little. Should slide right out. Once removed, there should be a small hanger on the backside of the tape deck, and a flat strip of steel just above that the hanger rides on. That strip fights me everytime.

I purchased a CD Head unit from a 1998 Contour with premium sound and other than the 1993 Mustang specific bottom plate/cubby mount it was a simple plug and play. I was able to swap the bottom plate from my 1993 cassette player to the Contour head unit but it isn't a perfect fit. It does physically fit but the the screw holes don't line up at the back so there is no way to have some sort of mechanical fastener(#8 torx bit that Ford uses) and the mounting tabs in the front don't fit all that well either.
Also, the later year cd players like the Contour have a face plate that is more rounded than the Mustang face plate
I was lucky enough to find a CD head unit out of a 1995 F-150/Bronco which is a perfect visual match to the original Mustang CD Head unit but still has the same problem with mounting the bottom plate/cubby mount.
While searching ebay again last weekend I was able to find another F-150 CD head unit.
I went from zero cd players to three cd players in a week.
I'm going to try and find another bottom plate/cubby mount to go with my extra F150 Head unit and sell it as a complete drop in

Thanks for your help
Great site

Sounds like you have a great car. Have you made any changes to it or is it still all factory?
I love originals.
Mine just turned 25k. All original other than the filters, wipers, battery and one tire.
Marti report shows my car is 1 of 15
They did get the color wrong. It's actually Performance red. Original owner had Vibrant Red touch up paint and it's not even close. I Also did a paint correction and can confirm it is single stage paint








Factory Alt. still marked "GT"
