Ford did not make pre 83 verts, it was made after it was purchased as a notch. Verts were made and vin as a notch, but ford outsourced them being made into Verts before they hit lots.

intermeccanicaIn

1980 this project started out as a deal with FORD to produce factory-authorized Mustang convertibles. They had beaten Carson Concepts and ASC(American Sunroof ) for the contract since IM had the best mechanism developed. The mechanism was like a Mercedes 220, finished with boot and folded down to a 4 ½" stack under the cover. Ford later pulled the plug on the deal for one reason or another.
The ASC McLaren is a direct descendant of the Intermeccanica Mustang convertible. Approximately 1200 non-factory authorized Mustang convertibles were produced.
