1985 Dodge Shelby Charger

The Shelby Charger is a modified 1980s Dodge Charger. Carroll Shelby tuned the Dodge Omni-based Charger for Dodge from 1983 to 1987, with the resulting car sold as the Dodge Shelby Charger. When the Charger was discontinued, Shelby bought the last 1,000 and replaced the fuel intake and engine management system with the same high-performance one used in the 1986 Shelby GLHS. It has a blow-through long runner two-piece intake, modified turbocharger (reclocked with a different compressor cover), and is intercooled. This engine was rated at 175 hp (130 kW) and 175 ft·lbf (237 N·m) of torque from 2400 rpm to 4800 rpm. This is similar to the Turbo II inline-four engine used in various Chrysler vehicles, but the Turbo II uses a forged crank, as opposed to a cast one, and a stronger Getrag A555 five-speed manual transmission is used in place of the A525.

Shelby also changed the struts and shocks with Koni adjustable units, wheels from his own wheel company (Centurion 2s), and high performance Goodyear Eagle GT tires. His modifications prompted the federal government to declare the car a Shelby model. A Dodge badge appears nowhere on the car, unlike its five-door L-body sibling, the GLH Omni, which does have the Dodge nameplate. Shelby Chargers were built at Chrysler’s Belvidere, Illinois, assembly plant, with the GLHS models in 1987 being built at the Whittier, California, plant of Carroll Shelby.
