By 1983, the Belvedere-built Charger had become an established player in
America's re-invigorated compact car market. Eccentric gearheads knew if
you wanted to look cool, you bought an L-Body. And if you wanted to look
cool and go fast, you bought a Shelby L-Body. Averaging just over 430 miles
per year, this pint-size MoPar appears to have rarely seen anything other
than sunshine and warm summer days. A quick check of the car's
undercarriage and suspension reveals no evidence of catastrophic rust or
abuse. A quick check of the car's profile reveals its body has never seen
any major repairs. And a quick check of our pictures confirms its original
Santa Fe and Radiant Silver skin is both bright and glossy. That's right,
even 31 years after it rolled out of the showroom this spry sports coupe is
still a true head turner everywhere it goes!
In their effort to improve the Charger, Shelby and Chrysler did not
overlook the car's mechanicals. They tweaked the engine, milling the block
0.030 inches to raise compression to 9.6 to 1. They changed the camshaft
timing by advancing the cam a few degrees. They also made modifications to
the 2.2 liter's electronic controls to extract optimum performance.
Consequently, the Shelby powerplant develops 13 more horsepower and 10 more
lb./ft. of torque than the standard Omni mill. These enhancements, plus a
lower final drive ratio, make the car a tick quicker than the standard
Charger and its early '80s competition. Specifically, the Shelby has a 0 to
60 time of 10 seconds flat and a 117MPH top speed.
Shelby Chargers came standard with an A525 5-speed that feeds the front
wheels. Holding that tossable drivetrain off the ground is an original
Special Sports Suspension that utilizes shorter springs, stiffer shocks and
correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to both lower the car and
improve already responsive handling. And, at the corners of that chassis,
original 'pizza' wheels spin original 195/50R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs around
locking lug nuts.
This coupe's tri-tone cockpit, which nicely complements its 2-tone
exterior, shows hardly any signs of wear. The reclining seats keep you as
comfortable for quick blasts of speed as they do during long road trips. In
front of the driver, a pliable dash, which shows zero defects, is packed
full of gauges that work exactly as they should. And, below that dash,
crack-free consoles prop a black shifter on gray carpet that's protected by
carpeted and color-keyed floor mats.
If you're an enthusiast who likes to put their hardware on the road, few
classics deliver this blend of exclusivity and practicality. Call, click or

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
