It means you're going to have to take some pictures, both overall and closeup, to help us help you determine exactly what you have. Because if it's not a Predator Mustang, or some other special 'aftermarket/tuner' model (such as a Dominator GT), then it's just an '83 Mustang GT that some dealer put aftermarket parts on before it was sold to you (your father).

I would say the best way to confirm for sure if it is or is not a Predator is to contact the expert on these cars, Orlando Hayward. He runs the registry on these cars and I'm pretty sure he has the list of VINS...

Quote from links above - "If you own one or would like more Information, please contact: ORLANDO HAYWARD 5431 CANDLETREE, HOUSTON, TEXAS 77091 Home (713) 812-9915 Work (713) 562-0494"

Please let us know what you find out about the car!

I'm in the process of doing research on these cars myself for an article on our website. I encourage you to also enter it into our registry (regardless of if it turns out to be a Predator or not).

Do you have any pictures of it?

Kathy

Thanks again for all the help. I can't seem to get a hold of anyone through the above mention suggestions. Does anyone have anymore suggestions? So I can get this ball rolling.

Wow, I totally forgot about this forum. Itís been a while since Iíve been here. I hope everyone is well. Just an update on my car since Iíve been here last. It is an 83 Predator GT302H (Solomon #3S0106). Iíve recently began restoration on it. Iíve got it back on the road and running after 15 years of being in storage. Hereís the latest pic.

Wow!!!

Only 8 of those cars were ever made in 1983???!!! That's a truly rare car. Unless it is absolutely necessary, I wouldn't consider selling it if I were you. It's a "keeper". I just wish that Ford hadn't put such an ugly grill on their 1983-1984 Mustangs.

15 years in storage may seem like a long time, but my 1988 Mustang GT has been in storage since 1992 (since it was 4 years old). That's 22 years now that my car has been in storage. But you stated that your car wasn't even cranked or anything for 15 years. That's not good, and it can lead to a lot of damage. Fortunately, the Ford 5.0L (302) V8 engine is very strong, and it can take a pounding. It is not a "twitchy" engine at all. After 15 years of not being cranked, your 302 probably turned right over with little or no effort, right? In my car's case, the engine has been started a few times a year for the past 22 years.

I am so happy that I joined this site and registered my Mustang GT here. It is so educational. Before I joined this site, I never knew that that were such things as a Predator Mustang, a Dominator Mustang, or even the Canadian Mustang Cobra GT.

Well it's running and back on the road. I've recently purchased struts and shocks. I need to get them on there. Attempting to fix the interval wipers.

The whole reason I became a fan of the Mustang is because a friend of mine bought 5 of them over the years. His first was an '83. He drove this car worse than somebody driving a stolen car. He used to drink and drive a lot. He eventually flipped this car. After he got rid of it, somebody fixed it and it ended up on a car dealers lot. My friend bumped into the next owner who bought the car and after he identified it as his, he let the owner know that it was flipped in a wreck. The guy was fuming mad. After this point he kept buying new Mustangs every year. After riding in all his Mustangs, this is what made me buy a Mustang. The '83 brings back fun memories for me.
