Dodge Shelby Charger "Gen 2" Rally Video - Hillclimb
After we jumped it in the sandpit we had to leave it there for a week
before we could tow it the mile to murrays house. Someone shot out the
windows the day before we picked it up, so we ended up cutting off the
roof, painting it all custom, then we pulled the frame out with a tractor
and the shelby was good to go. Althought the starter no longer worked, we
parked on hills whenever possible. Quite a rugged car our charger was...

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.

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.

video 2: Since purchasing this 1983 1/2 Dodge Shelby Charger in August
2012, a number of engine updates by turboMopar's 'R/T' and 'BIGBRUDDA" have resulted
in a nicely running Shelby Dodge machine. Here is a short video with a few
throttle blips to show off the new Exhaust and smooth-running carbed 2.2 liter
