One of only 500 built by Shelby at the Whittier plant in Southern California. This is one of the original hot hatches built in the 80s. Boasting an impressive for its time 175 hp, and a curb weight of only 2200 lbs, this little rocket could keep up with most exotics of the time. The turbo lag is legendary and you better have it pointed in the right direction once the turbo kicks in. Factory supplied with adjustable Koni suspension as well. Best part is it has one of the best acronyms for a car ever: Goes Like Hell S’more. This particular example is completely stock minus a slightly upgraded computer. This is as you would have found it back in the day right down to the AM/FM cassette player. This is also the highest vin numbered example created. This is an opportunity to drive one of the funnest Econo boxes ever created.
2.2 L innercooled and turbo charged. He used the t2, 2 piece head set up and upgraded turbo charger and injectors. These upgrades were performed at the Shelby plant and brought power output from 145 hp up to 175 hp with comparable torque and a flat torque curve. I have added a Mopar performance stage to factory computer. This eliminated the booth cut out. It’s also supposedly up power to approximately 205 hp and torque. This is unverified though.
15” Shelby Centurion wheels. Tires are 205-55-r15 Ventus V2s
Stock brakes. Adequate for this light of a vehicle under most conditions.
5 speed with reverse detent lockout.
Will perform a walk around with driver prior to hand over.
