Description for Dodge Omni GLHS 1986

Offered For Sale by The California Automobile Museum 1986 Dodge Shelby GLHS #44 of 500 This is a rare find. One owner car before coming to the California Automobile Museum. If you know about SHELBY’S GLHS, you can skip to the bottom. If not, here’s the story: Carroll Shelby is famous for the Ford-powered Shelby Cobra and his special variations of the Ford Mustang, however a lesser-known fact about Shelby is that he was a good friend of former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca.... When Iacocca was fired from Ford and headed to Chrysler, he brought Shelby with him, spawning numerous Shelby badged Chrysler performance cars. One of those cars was the Dodge Shelby Omni GLHS To create the Omni GLH (which stands for ‘Goes Like Hell’) Shelby took a slightly modified version of Chrysler’s 2.2-liter turbocharger four-cylinder engine along with some beefed up suspension and brake components and fitted them to the compact Dodge Omni. He took it one step further to create the GLHS (which stands for ‘Goes Like Hell S’more’) using a more powerful version of the 2.2-liter mill that churned out a healthy 175 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The GLH-S (Goes Like Hell, Some-more) limited edition was even more rare and potent with only 500 of them made in 1986 and they were a true “Shelby” with 175 hp. These were the fastest four door, four cylinder cars in 1985. These cars helped to get Carroll Shelby back on his feet again as far as manufacturing goes. So equipped, Shelby claimed that the 1986 Omni GLH-S could do 0-60 in a stunning 6.70 seconds, with a 14.7 quarter-mile (at 94 mph). Cornering was quite good, with a skid-pad measurement of .88g. Shelby Automobiles was able to advertise that “names like Porsche, Ferrari, Audi, and BMW all finish behind Carrol Shelby’s new Limited Edition GLH-S.” Hot Rod declared that the little Omni was two full seconds faster than the GT-350 over a side by side lap at Willow Springs, and one second faster in the quarter-mile than a 1966 Shelby Mustang. The official GLHS numbers were quarter-mile in 14.7 seconds, 0-60 in 6.5 sec, and .88g on the skidpad. Here’s your chance to own #44. The good news, it ran strong when it arrived at the museum. The bad news, it has electrical issues so it stopped running due to electrical issues. It does not pass California smog due to electrical issues. This car is a survivor. You can see the ghosting of the original Shelby badging. The body is straight without dents or rust. It rolls on the original “salt shaker” wheels, you can see Shelby cast in them. Also included are repair manuals, rear window louvers and a brand new grill. Here’s your chance to “bring one back”, don’t miss out…
