I would avoid 1982 and 1983. The convertibles to get are 1984 and 1985. Since YJob Fan, whomever that mysterious guy is, will disagree - let me note that I had similar interest about 8 years ago and Barney Eaton provided a well thought out response why NOT to buy a 1982 or 1983.  There are always exceptions but it is my understanding that some critical trim parts are unobtainable if found missing or damaged.  As I recall, he stated they were necessary for good fit.  So that is why I would avoid a 1982-3 car.

I would not avoid one of the 82 or 83's but would certainly want a very nice example to alleviate some of the supply issues,   but personally I would prefer an 84 or 85 for several reasons but the padded top/headliner would be top of the list. I have been looking for an 85 Turbo in white for years, looked at one a few months ago but it just was not pristine enough and would take a lot to get it there.  There was also a Select 60 on eBay a few months ago that was highly tempting
