Old Car Reader Wheels: 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger.

Ray Yuhasz owns a spectacular specimen of the often overlooked Shelby, the Dodge Charger variety that is.

I'll let Ray give you the story behind his cherished Dodge...

"This is my 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger. 2.2 turbo with a 5-speed manual transmission. The production numbers are as follows 7,709 Shelby Chargers produced in '85, with 3,846 being made in the Black/Silver combo. This car has remained stock but has had an engine rebuild, rebuilt transmission, new paint/stripes, new tires/ brakes, and a new headliner installed."

"I had the pleasure of owning a 1986 Shelby Charger when I got out of high school in the same color combo. I missed that car ever since, and swore I'd find another one day. Luckily, I finally did and it was ironically where I grew up 45 minutes south in my home city of St. Petersburg Florida."
