The 1986/1987 Shelby GLHS vehicles
Kazzer introduces the long overlooked low budget performance sports cars
from Caroll Shelbys Chrysler turbo days,
the 1986 Shelby GLHS (sedan) and the 1987 Shelby GLHS (coupe)
These weren't just Shelby stickered up Chryslers, the GLHS series of cars
were taken to Shelbys Whittier CA skunkworks facility where the performance
was bumped up all around and limited editions were made..
1986 GLHS's = 500 total
1987 GLHS's - 1,000 total
Omni GLH VS Shelby Charger "arch nemesis" turbogod VS Kevin C. Talking trash for
years and finally get to the track! I tried solid core Spark plug wires bad
no-no.. It stalls off the line and backfires all the way down the track..
Next time Kevin!!
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
