THE SHELBY LANCER

1987 marked a move upmarket for the Shelby-Dodge partnership. The Lancer would be the most lavishly equipped model to date for the collaborators by offering a suite of luxury appointments in conjunction with impressive performance.

The drivetrain was largely shared with the prior year's GLH-S Omni, and as such the 2.2 liter inline 4-cylinder turbo pumped out 175hp and 175lb-ft of torque. Officially the motor was known as the Turbo II specification and it would find further use powering the '87 Shelby CSX. Not just a straight-line burner, Shelby's team also focused their attention on making the Lancer a performer in the corners. The Shelby Touring Suspension package utilized Monroe Formula GP shocks and struts with stiffer springs that lowered the ride height by a quarter inch. Thicker anti-sway bars were also installed front and year. 205 section Goodyear rubber wrapped around one-piece aluminum Shelby 15 inch rims allowed for a larger contact patch and less unsprung weight. Breaking performance was also increased thanks to Kelsey Hayes vented discs up front and solid discs in the rear.
Inside is where the Lancer differentiated most from its Shelby Stable mates. Power mirrors, windows, door locks, and 120-watt Pioneer Stereo with 10 speakers and a graphic equalizer delivered full range of modern conveniences. Automatic optioned vehicles, like the one on offer, were fitted with ergonomic leather sports seats with ample bolstering. The only color available was Graphic red and the remainder of the exterior received an aggressive treatment. A deeper front air dam, side skirts, and decklid spoiler provided a refined aerodynamics, and the all the trim was finished in black.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Just 800 of these models were completed in 1987, 400 automatics and 400 manuals. The Lancer available here is the first example produced and has remained in the ownership of Carroll Shelby since new. With close to 50,000 miles, Lancer number one was clearly one of Carroll's go-to modes of transportation when in California. Lancer number 1 is accompanied by a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate certifying that the car was owned by Carroll Shelby. A lesser known model of the relationship between Shelby and Mopar, this Dodge is sure to make an intriguing addition to any collection.
