THE DODGE CSX

With the Omni and Charger becoming long in the tooth by the late 1980's Dodge finally made the decision to replace the models with the K-car derived compact Dodge Shadow. Keeping up with the times, Shelby's relentless pursuit of speed meant that they would be adopting this new vehicle into their own portfolio. The recipe remained similar enough to their previous efforts. A 2.2-liter inline turbo 4 cylinder provided 175hp to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, new additions included a larger turbo, an AiResearch T3, supplying peak boost of 12psi through an air-to-air intercooler. 0-60 could be achieved in an impressive 7.1 seconds as a result.

The suspension also saw a number of improvements with the inclusion of gas charged Monroe Formula GP struts with high rate coil-over springs which lowered the vehicle three quarters of an inch. Larger anti roll bars were also fitted on both the front and year. Kelsey-Hayes vented rotors up front and solid discs in the rear aided in the effort to reduce the high speeds the vehicle was now capable of. Shared with the Charger GLH-S, Centurion II brushed aluminum wheels were wrapped in Goodyear Eagle tires.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Only 750 of these cars were completed for the 1987 model year and all were finished in identical specification. Two-tone Black and Silver paint adorned the refreshed bodywork that included unique front grill, air dam, side skirts, and spoiler. Inside, the vehicle came with some fine details in the way of a Shelby turbo gauge and simulated leather steering wheel. The CSX offered here is the first example built as noted on its numbered dash plaque and has been under the care of Carroll Shelby since it was built. The car is offered with a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate certifying that the car was owned by Carroll Shelby. The Dodge CSX surely deserves it place among the most interesting and rapidly appreciating collectibles from the era.
