It has a 2.2 liter high performance four cylinder engine and a five speed manual transmission. The engine runs well and the transmission shifts smoothly. This is a highly optioned car with the following features; am/fm stereo, automatic speed control, sunroof, special light group, rear window defroster and cold weather package with an engine block heater. Car was purchased new from Century Dodge in Taylor Michigan. This is a real time capsule and a cool car to drive and boy does it drive straight for a 32 year old car. Back in 83 Lee Iacocca recruited Carroll Shelby to produce a car that was good looking, fast, had superior handling and was fuel efficient. Shelby achieved all of those goals by increasing the horsepower, upgrading the transaxle from 2.57 to 2.78, replacing the 18:1 steering ratio with a 14:1 fast ratio power steering system, stiffening the suspension by 40%, adding an aerodynamic package and replacing the 14" steel wheels with 15" aluminum wheels. All this resulted in a quarter mile time of 15.87 seconds at 85.4 mph. Shelby also achieved 25 mpg city driving and 40 mpg highway. Dodge produced less than 9,000 of these cars in 83 and this color combination is the rarest. This is a great and affordable collector car for someone that wants to get into the hobby without spending a lot of money. The car is located in Michigan. Has build sheet and window sticker.
