1986 Shelby GLHSFrom Wikipedia on the GLHS...
"The '1986Shelby GLH-S'was a modifiedDodge Omni GLH, with changes made at the Shelby factory. They were retitled as Shelby Automobiles cars sold at select Dodge dealerships. GLH stood for "Goes Like Hell" and GLHS stood forGoes Like Hell S'more.Just 500 were made.
Dash plaques used a 3-digit serial numbering system (as only 500 were made).
TheTurbo Iengine was modified with pre-production pieces from what would become theTurbo IIinline-four engine. These changes included anintercoolerand other changes to produce 175hp (130kW) and a flat 175ft·lbf (237N·m)torquecurve. Not included were any of the durability changes to the short block (forged crank, full floating pin, stouter connecting rods, etc.) of the 1987 ChryslerTurbo IIengine. Luckily, the Shelby engines have proved to be reliable even without the durability enhancements of the productionTurbo II. Performance was impressive, with just 6.5s needed for 0–60mph (97km/h) and 14.8s for the quarter mile (402m) run. Top speed was 130mph (209km/h).
Shelby Automobiles received the first T-2 induction pieces (prior to Dodge/Chrysler), and installed them on the 500 GLH cars that shipped to the Whittier factory. Engine mods. included: New T-2 fuel rail, T-2 injectors, wiring harness, larger throttle body, bigger turbo, tuned intake & exhaust manifolds, intercooler/rad. & fan assemblies, induction hoses, T-2 airbox, GLHS specific logic module,CS-Shelby-CSwindshield decal, & tape graphics pkg. Interestingly, there was a Dodge emblem left on in production. A black/yellow overlay sticker was placed at the bottom of the speedometer to read to 135mph (217km/h). A Momo leather-wrapped shifter knob, Izumi leather-wrapped steering wheel, and shift pattern sticker were also installed. AUse only Mobil 1 in your GLHSplaque was affixed to the front of the standard production valve cover.
The primary differences between the Shelby engine and the Chrysler Turbo II engine are the torque: Shelby's unique engine computer shaved the torque to save the stock Omni transaxle, Chrysler Turbo II engines had 200lb·ft (270N·m) of torque; the trimetal bearings, forged crank and extra oil passages weren't present; and the wiring harness is a conglomeration of original Turbo I, with splicings for the heated oxygen sensor."
This GLHS is number 281 of 1000 made, It runs, drives and handles great, I took it on a 500 mile problem-free week long trip earlier this spring. The car has been stored winters ever since I purchased it in 2005. Within the last year I've put new tires and had the Koni shocks and struts rebuilt by Truechoice in Colulmbus, Oh at a cost of about $1200. They are the only authorized Koni repair facility outside the Koni factory that I am aware of. The previous owner replaced the original 525 transmission with a Cliff Ramsdell hybrid 525/555, that is the only mechanical modification to stock that I am aware of. The original 525 does come with the car. The car does have some rust on the rear roll pan under the drivers side bumper bracket, other than that it is nice. The frame rails and floor boards are very nice, no rust issues. That is a problem area for these cars and this one is in great shape. The hood has a few blemishes that look like corrosion under the paint as you can see in one of the pics. The interior is very, very nice shape. The leather on the steering wheel was worn and was removed but the wheel is in great shape. The glove box door and window sticker have both been signed by Carroll Shelby. Here's an opportunity to own a car modified at Carroll Shelby's factory for a fraction of what the Shelby Mustangs sell for.
This car is for sell locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early. Buyer responsible for all shipping costs, $200 deposit due within 48 hours of auctions end.
