GLHS Shelby Charger #742 of 1000 made

I drove this car today, and let me tell you, this is one of the most under-rated cars every made. What a blast it was winding 2nd and 3rd gear out! Make you wonder why they only made 1000.

1987 Shelby Charger GLHS #477 - Engine - SOLD BY OWNER - October, 2012
IF INTERESTED, PLEASE EMAIL ME AT 1987chargerglhs477@gmail.comSEE PICTURES AT http://1987chargerglhs477.wordpress.com/ 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 engine compartment is still real clean. I removed the air conditioning compressor, refrigerant lines and condenser back in 1997. The previous owner said that the compressor seal had leaked oil (which is evident from the oil streak on the hood blanket) and never got it repaired. Honestly, I never cared to repair it either. Any 4-cylinder engine I've owned totally sucked when the air conditioning compressor kicked on. But all of the parts are included. Aside from the compressor seal, all of the other parts including the condenser appears to be in very good shape. The Koni adjustable shocks & struts are original and have not leaked. They work excellent (I've always had them on the lowest setting) and include the adjustment key. The driver-side ball joint dust boot has had a split in it since the day I owned it. I bought an original Mopar stock ball joint with intentions on getting it replaced but never had the time. There is a slight rattle from it but it is nothing that I felt needed to be replaced immediately. I installed a K&N air filter, replaced the charge air temperature sensor, resealed the valve cover the proper way, replaced the Hall-effect sensor, and cap/rotor and wires. The oil pan should eventually be resealed, as it shows a small drop after a full week of driving. Again, nothing that I would say needs to be done right away. With the Mopar Performance Stage II computer, I've installed Bosch Platinum spark plugs that is one hotter than specified by the Shelby engine decal up by the radiator panel. If you look close in front of the radiator, I've installed a bug screen to protect the fins of the radiator and Intercooler. It hasn't affected cooling at all, and the fins aren't smushed over from stones. It can be removed if desired, but I would keep it on. You will also see a reversed-stamped VIN on the body next to the driver headlight that matches the vehicle VIN. This will prove that the car is a true GLHS and not a clone. I've modified the backer plate under the hood vent. Originally it was completely blocked off by Shelby. However, I felt it was important to relieve underhood heat when the engine was shut off, so I made and installed an aluminum scoop which helped to vent the heat while funneling rain water away from the motor. It just made sense. The sunroof can be raised, or removed and stored in the trunk, and does not leak.
