1988 Dodge Shadow Shelby CSX-T

This is Shelby CSX-t #747 out of 1,000. Now a unique, fun and even practical daily driver, this Shelby was stored in a barn for several years before we recently rescued it. We have gone through it, replaced all fluids and vulnerable items, and have put a few thousand miles on it to ensure it is completely ready to be driven again on a regular basis. As it sits, it is a fun to drive little car that runs and drives beautifully and gets tons of "thumbs-ups" from those in the know.

Equipped with a smooth running 2.2 liter Turbo I Chrysler engine and a smooth-shifting 5-speed manual transmission, this little car scoots along quite well and has no problem at all around town or at highway speeds. It even gets close to 30 MPG! All of the lights and signals appear to work properly, and though it has "quirks" typical of a 25-year old car, all of the items needed to drive and enjoy seem to function well - including the factory stereo!

The interior has some staining in the carpet and here and there on the upholstery, but nothing major. It is free of any foul barn odor and has generally good trim and controls. All gauges appear to function as they should. The body is in nice shape with no visible rust, though some trim pieces here and there are loose, and there are two minor gouges on the plastic bumper covers. Part of the blue pinstriping has worn off here and there. Mechanically, the CSX starts quickly and easily, idles and runs well, shifts easily through all the gears, and stops straight and true. It is easy and extremely fun to drive. Tires and brakes are new, steering and suspension are all tight. It really is an excellent driver!

Known issues include the rear hatch struts being worn, the aforementioned light staining, and some wear on the drivers seat. We've done our best to address all known mechanical issues - it does not run hot, it idles well, has plenty of power, and appears to have plenty of clutch life left. The gears do not grind and it tracks straight with no pulling or excessive play in the steering or suspension. The body, while far from perfect, is in very presentable condition for the age. There is no visible rust, and the body is quite straight. Addressing the piece of loose trim and worn pin striping here and there would make this CSX look really good!

If you are not aware of the history of these cars, I'd encourage you to look it up, there is a ton of information out there on the web. Unique and interesting cars from the 80's are really starting to gain a following and appreciate in value. With a little bit of TLC here and there, this car will absolutely not be out of place at your local car show or meet-up.

We're happy to talk and answer any questions a prospective buyer may have and encourage you to take a test drive before bidding. I would feel comfortable takin this on a cross-country drive home if one was so inclined. We have sold many cars across the country to satisfied sellers - we're happy to make arrangements for delivery across the US as well.
