Re: shelby challenger FTW

Google ftw

The Shelby Charger was a modified 1980s Dodge Charger. Carroll Shelby had tuned the Dodge Omni-based Charger for Dodge from 19831⁄2 to 1987, with the resulting car sold as the Dodge Shelby Charger. When the Charger was discontinued, Shelby bought the last 1,000 and replaced the fuel intake and engine management system with the same high-performance one used in the 1986 Shelby GLHS. It had a blow-through long runner 2-piece intake, modified turbocharger (reclocked with a different compressor cover), and was intercooled. This engine was rated at 175 hp (130 kW) and 175 ft·lbf (237 N·m) of torque from 2400 rpm to 4800 rpm. This was similar to the Turbo II inline-four engine used in various Chrysler vehicles, but the Turbo II used a forged crank, as opposed to a cast one, and a stronger Getrag A555 5-speed manual transmission was used in place of the A525. The GLHS still came equipped with the rod linkage a525 transmission however. Shelby also changed the struts/shocks with Koni adjustable units, wheels from his own wheel company (Centurion 2's), and high performance Goodyear Eagle GT tires. His modifications prompted the federal government to declare the car a Shelby model. The trademark Dodge appears nowhere on the car, unlike its 5-door L-Body sibling, the GLHS Omni, which does have the Dodge nameplate. Shelby Chargers were built at Chrysler Belvidere, Illinois assembly plant, with the GLHS models in 1987 being built at the Whittier, California plant of Carroll Shelby.

Did something decent actually come out of the 1980's?

They're rare, they can be surprisingly quick, and they were ahead of their time.....Good friend of mine had one in college, and with basic mods, race gas, and extra boost it was in the 12's on small MT ET Streets

Re: shelby challenger FTW

well young men ,they used to be all over the roads in the 80's not so rare then , maybe now ... but what ever you may think ,they were JUNK .... quick though , low 15's and you could get them into the 14's with a little work ... ( i used to work for Dodge back then ) so I drove many and they were all rattle traps , torque steer , junky interiors , ( except the Shelby seats were kinda cool ) econo cars with a stiff suspension ,and a turbo is all they were .....

Re: shelby challenger FTW

There is a guy on SVTP that is restoring one (frame off) and it looks amazing. I used to have a Daytona which had a similar body style.

Re: shelby challenger FTW

Wasn't the Mitsubishi Starion based off of this also. That car was pretty sweet. I belive it had the nickname of "the original pony killer".

Mitsu Starions and Chrysler Conquests (same car) were rear wheel drive with a G54B engine. Different engine, different trans, RWD....

BUT, they had a fairly large 4 cyl., a turbo, and they were RWD....I've owned 3 of them. They are surprisingly fun with a 16G turbo and nitrous

Re: shelby challenger FTW

I owned an 89 Daytona Shelby and an 85 Shelby Charger. The GLHS is super rare and its a Shelby numbered car. Worth a good chunk of money. The rest are just designed by, but not built by Shelby. All very quick though. 175hp and 210ft lbs in the TII Models.

There's a couple of them on the road just down from me. Kind of ugly I think.
