    I have a 1983 Ford Mustang GLX Convertible. It came with the old AM/FM cassette player. I would like to swap it out for a radio that works, but I have been to several places already and no one has a dash kit for it? Any help out here would be appreciated

    Josh, unfortunately there is no dash kit available for your 1983 Ford Mustang. Take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer and they should be able to build a custom dash kit. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 1983 Ford Mustang stereo installation.
