Description for Dodge Charger 1983

Neat Genuine Shelby Charger! This one is looking & running super nice in and out and is a limited production factory high-output 2.2L 5-Spd cruiser! This factory limited production car is 1 of 3,069 silver with blue stripe cars and has a # 5 out of 100 Shelby-Dodge Automobile Club badge on dash. Not sure what that represents none the less its on dash! This little fella has lots of documentation with 2 full size framed info from Shelby press photo kit to several articals & badging & shop manual! This car was a collaboration between Dodge and Carroll Shelby, as respected a name in the aftermarket industry as has ever existed, gave rise to this 1983 Dodge Charger Shelby. It's a veritable early '80s automotive piece of history that's looking sharp and running strong! The Shelby Charger's drivetrain modifications included an enhanced 2.2-liter, H.O 4 cylinder OHC engine with chrome valve cover with a revised camshaft and 9.6:1 compression ratio. Upgrade 5-speed transaxle blended with closer gear ratios for an overall top gear ratio of 2.78. These changes turned out 107 hp at 5600 rpm, 13 hp more than the standard 2.2. Torque peak was 127 lb-ft at 3600. The Shelby Charger went from 0-60 in 9.0 seconds and had a 16.8 second ET at 82 mph; top speed was 117 mph! The silver metallic paint draped over its memory-invoking exterior adds a touch of modernity to the mix and, due to a freshening up over the years, it's looking nice and sharp. The array of painted blue accents amps up its vintage '80s vibe and it, too, is looking particularly vibrant - the edges where gray gives way to blue are very sharp and the Dodge lettering on the hood really pops. While its scarcity provides this Dodge with built in collectability, it's actually more than a mere conversation piece meant to languish in the garage - it's very much in road-ready condition. Well over thirty years after this seldom seen automotive collaboration first hit the streets, its body alignment is still holding firm - it's got an undeniably straight look to it and its doors, hood and rear hatch all open and close well. The cabin still sports clear glass surrounded by fresh-looking trim and even the rear spoiler, and is further set off by a nice set of removable loovers! Judging by the vital look of the blue and silver interior, which mixes vinyl and cloth for a nice finished result, it's likely been well kept over the years and it's been done so with a lot of care.The front reclining buckets carry plenty of padding and sit nice and have the embroidered CS on their headrests to pay homage to Mr Shelby. Shelby logo floor mats. The dash area continues to present very well with a nice dash pad on top that shows no cracks. The level of functionality on hand here is impressive - not only do the gauges function as intended, but so do the control knobs and switches, the clock and even the AM/FM/cassette deck with eq work well. Lift the hatch in back and you'll find quite a bit of usable space at your disposal all of it lined with clean, silver/grey carpeting. The reassuringly solid condition of the drivetrain reinforces the notion that this vintage Dodge is very much ready for the road as soon as you bring it home. Miles listed in ad at 16xxx are what are showing on its 5 diget odometer. We feel miles have turned past 99,999 once based on vin history, records and condtion. It will be sold miles exempt in excess of mech limits! It has new clutch, timing belt & head gasket done at 112k! Its transverse-mounted HO 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine starts right up, runs very smooth and sits in an engine bay that's obviously received plenty of attention over the years to maintain its well-detailed appearance. The compact powerplant teams with a 5 speed manual transmission with a surprisingly easy action to it. Power brakes, including discs up front, power steering makes it a breeze to navigate on its 15 stock rims outfitted with BF Goodrich G-Force tires. This 1983 Dodge Charger Shelby is a well-up-dated & restored, rolling homage to the early '80s! New owner should really like this this clean ready to enjoy turn-key and cruise-in show worth Shelby! Vehicle is parked in our showroom it is that quality!
