Dodge Daytona CS
There were changes for the 1986 Daytona. The middle "turbo" model was dropped, leaving just two models:
Base and turbo Z. Engine changes were
also made: A new 2.5 L 100 hp (75 kW) 4-cylinder engine was added for the
base model. A new t-roof package was added to the option list, but just
5,984 Daytona owners chose this option. The biggest addition was the
optional C/S (Competition Series). This consisted of 32 mm (1.3 in) front
and 28 mm (1.1 in) rear anti-sway bars, performance tuned struts, and speed
rated tires. This package would foreshadow the Daytona Shelbys of 1987 and
beyond. Only 7,704 owners added this handling package to their Daytonas.
Total production this year would be 44,366.
Dodge 600 ES Convertible
This was the car that Iacocca asked Bob Lutz to make. Something that could
compete with Mercedes. It had a lot of power for its day and even though
it was saddled with Chrysler's reputation for uneven quality the car's
attracted a loyal following.
Dodge K Aries
The Chrysler K car platform, including the Dodge Aries, helped to pull
Chrysler out of bankruptcy.
Dodge Omni GLH
The ultimate Dodge Omni was the modified Omni GLH. The original name,
"Coyote", was rejected, and Carroll Shelby's choice, the initials GLH,
which stood for "Goes Like Hell", were taken instead. 1984 was the first
year of the GLH.
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

Classics Revealed: The Shelby Cobra
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Shelby Cobra is perhaps the World's most
iconic and thus copied car. Less than 1000 original Ford AC Cobras were
built by Carroll Shelby. Tens of Thousands of copies of the original 289
and 427 AC Cobras exist with most of them being "kit cars" copies. In this
exclusive TFLcar video we visit Superformace in Southern California to
learn why the Shelby Cobra is such an iconic race car and automobile.
Superformance along with Carroll Shelby's own Shelby Automobiles, Inc build
what many call "Continuation Cars". These are brand new Shelby Cobra
roadsters and coupes that have official Shebly CSX serial numbers. They are
of course not the original series of Shelby Cobra cars which now demand
hundreds of thousands of dollars by collectors when they do come up for
sale , but they are also not copies. They are simply new Shelby Cobras
built as a continuation of the original series of cars. In other words,
these are new Shelby Cobras. If you are a fan of Carroll Shelby and his
cars you'll like this video as we get deep into the history of what many
believe is America's most beautiful and iconic race car.
