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

This car has the Mopar Performance Stage II computer installed. I shifted
at about 3500 RPM to keep the speed down. There are a lot of police in the
area. This car just wants way more than I gave it. It's one angry little
4-cylinder that's for sure. I don't get to drive it often, but when I do it
amazes me every time! With usual driving habits, I saw about 24 to 28 MPG
using the trip odometer, for what it's worth.
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 original computer
comes with the sale of the car, and still works as it should. However, Boost with the stock computer is
limited to 12 psi by design.
