83 odometer question

Postby offcenter » Mon Jun 22, 2015 6:00 pm



Gentlemen, a friend heard about a "suposedly" low mileage 83 for sale.
Did the 83s have the last digit on the odometer? Or did they roll over
to zero at 99,999?
Thanks.

Thanks Wilcoy! So chances are, the low mileage is original.

Which means it has sat for a period of time. First thing you do is change the timing belts- broke belt=broke engine
