This car has a little over 51,000 actual and documented miles at the time of this video upload. The turbo is very strong, does not blow any blue smoke or burn oil. The engine compartment is still real clean. I removed the air conditioning compressor, refrigerant lines and condenser back in 1997. The previous owner said that the compressor seal had leaked oil (which is evident from the oil streak on the hood blanket) and never got it repaired. Honestly, I never cared to repair it either. Any 4-cylinder engine I've owned totally sucked when the air conditioning compressor kicked on. But all of the parts are included. Aside from the compressor seal, all of the other parts including the condenser appears to be in very good shape. The Koni adjustable shocks & struts are original and have not leaked. They work excellent (I've always had them on the lowest setting) and include the adjustment key. The driver-side ball joint dust boot has had a split in it since the day I owned it. I bought an original Mopar stock ball joint with intentions on getting it replaced but never had the time. There is a slight rattle from it but it is nothing that I felt needed to be replaced immediately. I installed a K&N air filter, replaced the charge air temperature sensor, resealed the valve cover the proper way, replaced the Hall-effect sensor, and cap/rotor and wires. The oil pan should eventually be resealed, as it shows a small drop after a full week of driving. Again, nothing that I would say needs to be done right away. With the Mopar Performance Stage II computer, I've installed Bosch Platinum spark plugs that is one hotter than specified by the Shelby engine decal up by the radiator panel. If you look close in front of the radiator, I've installed a bug screen to protect the fins of the radiator and Intercooler. It hasn't affected cooling at all, and the fins aren't smushed over from stones. It can be removed if desired, but I would keep it on. You will also see a reversed-stamped VIN on the body next to the driver headlight that matches the vehicle VIN. This will prove that the car is a true GLHS and not a clone. I've modified the backer
plate under the hood vent. Originally it was completely blocked off by Shelby. However, I felt it was important to relieve underhood heat when the engine was shut off, so I made and installed an aluminum scoop which helped to vent the heat while funneling rain water away from the motor. It just made sense. The sunroof can be raised, or removed and stored in the trunk, and does not leak.

1984 DODGE SHELBY CHARGER -- ANOTHER RARE SHELBY CREATION
For 1983, Carroll Shelby modified the Dodge Charger, to be sold at Dodge
dealers as the Dodge Shelby Charger. Rather than focusing on speed, Shelby
modified the suspension and styling. The engine compression was raised for
107 hp, and the manual transmission had revised ratios. Shorter springs,
special wheels, and tires complemented stronger brakes and quicker
steering. Outside, a new nose and racing stripes accented the performance
image. The body kits, among other parts, were often shipped to dealerships
along with the car to be put on after delivery. The reasoning behind this
varied, but was said to speed delivery and compensate for ground clearance
issues that the cars faced on many car carriers. Production was 8,251 for
that first year.
For 1984, the Shelby Charger could be ordered with an optional automatic
transmission. There were 7,552 Shelby Chargers sold this model year. The
high-output engine, now up to 110 hp was also available in baseline
Chargers and Turismos. The MPFI/turbocharged turbo I engine, commonly known as a 'T1' was added
for Dodge's 1985 Shelby Charger. This engine produced 146 hp and was
changed from its first appearance in the Dodge Daytona turbo during the previous year. A Garrett
AiResearch T3 turbocharger and
Chrysler/Bosch multiple-point fuel injection enabled the 2.2 L engine to
produce the additional horsepower. A total of
7,709 Shelby Chargers were made for the 1985 model year, and 7,669 in 1986.
1987 was the final year, with just 1,011 produced. How many of these
Shelby creations exist today? Most likely just several hundred of all the
years these were made. Always a pleasure to see a rare car especially in
this condition. Thanks very much for viewing this rare 1984 Dodge Shelby

I pointed out a scuff line on the driver's window tint that was caused by
the inside felt window guide. It didn't scratch the glass. The aftermarket
tint is applied on the driver-side windows, the passenger-side windows and
the rear hatch. It is not too dark, has good visibility at night, and no
wrinkle spots or sun fading. This is a good quality tint and appears to be
professionally installed. No rust under the doors, and the door hinge pins
are very secure. The door weatherstrip has come loose for about 2 feet on
the bottom of the driver's door. It is intact, not damaged and can possibly
be glued back on or completely replaced if desired. Carpets are 95% clean,
no missing patches or ripped piles. Just one small stain that appear to be
from boots, and can probably be cleaned using a good carpet cleaner. I
always used the original Mopar floor mats, which are in real good condition
and are included. Clean non-smoking interior. Seats are 95% and work as
they should, just like everything else. I had seat covers on them since Day
2. Momo leather shift knob is 98% and the leather wrapped steering wheel is
95%. Only 3 small surface scuffs on the wheel, but both the steering wheel
and the shift knob are nice and black with no dry rot whatsoever. I
replaced the original radio for a Chrysler Infinity from a 1989 Lebaron turbo 2.5, and it was a simple swap. Same
connectors I believe. It sounds so much better than stock, but I will also
include the stock radio with the sale. Previous owner had an expensive
stereo in it which he removed before selling it to me. You will see Dynamat
on the trunk floor and spare wheel compartment because he had a speaker
back there. Even the glovebox door strap is intact! The AutoMeter Boost gauge will stay with the car and works
excellent. The needle does not flutter since I think it is a liquid-filled
gauge. It should light up with the instrument panel but I think the bulb is
burned out. All other interior lights work as they should. I removed the Boost gauge that the previous owner
installed because it was on the A-pillar and forced you to take your eyes
off the road. Also, I installed this so that it could be easily unplugged
and stowed in the glovebox to avoid theft. I didn't cut or drill any holes
during installation and it can be easily removed. The sun visors stay put.
There are a few areas of the headliner that are beginning to settle.
Nothing major, can possibly be fixed with a spray adhesive.

SDAC-22 - Recap
Re-cap of the annual Shelby Dodge Auto Club (SDAC)'s event that was held in
June. This was the 22nd year, and also the 25th anniversary of the '87
CSX, Lancer, and GLHS.
The event was a blast! If anyone out there is a fan of the little turbocharged four-cylinders, please feel free to
stop in on the next one! These cars were pionneers on the world of FWD turbocharged performance back in the 80's
and paved the way for the powerhouses we see today!

1985 Dodge Daytona Turbo
A video of my Daytona, there hard to find now. I had one for my first car
back in 1995 and always thought they were neat cars. 2.2L turbo, 146 hp and around 170 torque was not bad
back in 1985. I recently sold this car to a young kid I'm hoping he don't

Dodge Omni GLH Project
I'm starting a video log of my Dodge Omni GLH in hopes that it will inspire
me to get the car out of the garage so I can focus on my CSX. At least I
have this brief intro video and a video which shows how to make your own
injector harness. I've got that going for me anyway.
