Reviving a 1986 Shelby GLHS Part 1
I was visiting my parents when I saw a car hiding in a wooded area under a car cover. I found the owner and he turned out to be a really cool guy and Subaru wizard. He agreed to sell me the car so I went over to help him pull it out of hiding and get her running! She's number 219 of 500 EVER made. 2.2 liters of turbo goodness in a car that weighs about 2200 pounds.

1987 Shelby Charger GLHS #477 - Exterior (part 2) - SOLD BY OWNER - October, 2012
IF INTERESTED, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT 1987chargerglhs477@gmail.com SEE PICTURES AT http://1987chargerglhs477.wordpress.com/ As far as I'm aware and what I've been told by the previous owner, this is the original paint. In my opinion, the quality of the paint job was poor to begin with - topcoat black under the door beneath the interior panels were sprayed very thin from Shelby and you can see the primer through it. The prior owner had touched up the passenger door and you can see a paint line if you look for it. Here we can see the paint peeling away on the hood (and this is the only place this is occurring) showing the base primer underneath. This is a common problem for not only for Dodge, but several other auto makers of this era. It started to peel in 1999 and since then, I've been extra cautious about protecting the rest of the paint. I suppose a paint job just on the hood would suffice. There are a few door dings from careless and inconsiderate idiots. Aside from the hood, I would say the paint is about 80%. The decals are about 85%, showing a custom "shadow paint" in purple that was done by the previous owner. It really looks great. The SHELBY decal on the front window has some cracks - I would rate it at 85%. Many genuine Mopar new old stock decals will be included with the sale. All of the marker lights and reflectors have been "blacked out" using a transparent black paint that still allows light to penetrate. Similarly, the aftermarket Philips headlights have a black honeycomb insert. During the day, the headlights look black. At night, the lights shine bright. I bought a spare rear center brake light lens and installed the Blue Dots (the original brake lens is blacked out as well and is also included). At night, the blue prism lenses blend with the red light surrounding the Blue Dots to yield a purple color. Very fitting considering the purple theme from the decals. I also installed a locking gas cap but have the original which is included. The rims are 90%. All of the original machining looks very crisp, and there are no dings or curb damage. The finish is better than good, only a few areas showing the original clear coat beginning to spider crack. All wheel weights are on the inside of the rim. McGard wheel lock nuts and key are included. There are lots of life left on these Firestone tires - I would guess at least 3 to 5 years left easily. No dry rot or cracks. Size is P205-50R15. Side mirrors and back bumper cover are originally finished in a flat matte black. They are beginning to show a very slight amount of sun fade, but a little bit of waxing definitely hides this.
