SHELBY CHARGER GLH-S

1987 marked the final year of the front wheel drive L-body Dodge Shelby Charger, and in order to properly send off the model, Carrol Shelby purchased the final 1,000 examples to be shipped to his new Whittier Factory for further modification. Similar to other Shelby models of the era, the Charger utilized the SOHC 2.2-liter turbo engine. However, the addition of an intercooler, redesigned intake manifold, high flow Bosch injectors, and an increased maximum boost pressure of 12psi resulted in a 30 horsepower increase over the standard GLH to 175hp and 175ft-lbf. The adjustable Koni shocks and upgraded anti-roll bars from the previous year's Omni GLH-S also found their way into the Charger. Lastly, 205 section tires wrapped around Shelby "Centurion II" aluminum wheels over vented discs cemented the final product as a true enthusiast's automobile.

Much like the Ford Model T, you could have the GLH-S in any color you wanted as long as it was black. Inside, all GLH-S Chargers shared identically specified grey interiors with leather wrapped steering wheels and shift knobs. Creature comforts such as air conditioning and a sunroof were both standard and each car was fitted with a Shelby plaque noting the order of production for each vehicle.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The plaque of the model on offer presents the esteemed number of 001, marking this as the very first of limited examples produced. Furthermore, the vehicle has been held under the personal collection of the man himself, Carroll Shelby, for the life of the vehicle.

The Charger GLH-S is the definitive edition of the model and featured every performance upgrade Shelby's team could throw at it. In period, the swift coupe offered stiff competition, besting the likes of Porsche and BMW, all in an unconventional and affordable package at a cost of only $12,995. Offered with a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate certifying that the car was owned by Carroll Shelby, Charger GLH-S 001 is above and beyond the finest of its kind.

Saleroom notices
