I just posted over on the 'other' forums, but I picked up another car this weekend. Some of the pictures are posted below. It's an '89 Daytona Shelby with t-tops, intercooled Turbo II, and A555 trans. It's got an expensive new paint jobs but has a rod knock and some electrical gremlins so I got it for a decent price. The seller wanted too much for some aftermarket wheels that were on it so I threw some of my SRT-4 wheels on it. With too many projects going on (including my SRT-4) it means I'll be selling a few more cars including my turbo minivan (Caravan SE- exhaust, intercooled, A413, bunch of new stuff). So if someone in SoCal is looking for something, let me know.

In no particular order, no, it's FWD (but Mopar did sell a handful of RWD K-frame conversion kits in the early years that can be made to work). Dyno or 1/4-mile times? Hah! With the rod knock I drove it 7 miles before towing it 160+ miles via AAA in the last two days. :lol: And this makes my second Daytona. I've also got one of the pre-production '92 IROC R/T factory pilot cars w/ ~30k miles. I threw a set of SRT-4 wheels on it too.

Along with the minivan.

Nothing wrong with cheap wheels and reasonably decent tires. Now all I need is one more set for my Spirit R/T. They'd fit a few of my GM's but that would be a little too tacky. :lol:

Weight with t-tops is probably ~3k pounds. The Turbo II engine is a 2.2L 8V SOHC, non-crossflow head (intake/exhaust on same side). Bottom end has a forged crank and rods. Uses a Garrett T3 and stock was rated at 175/175 (toque managed from the factory for durability).

On the chopping block right now for cars are my '94 Olds Cutlass Supreme convertible (~74k miles, 3.4L DOHC, HUD, loaded) and probably my '89 Caravan SE (turbo, A413 automatic, intercooled), and maybe my '90 ASC/McLaren Turbo Grand Prix (~63k miles, needs trans rebuild but was thinking of doing a 5-speed swap).

With a little more fuel pressure the minivan should support about 14-15 psi pretty easy. Near stock/non-intercooled it ran a 16.4 (with a ~2.4 60') but might be able to click off a mid to high 14-second pass now.


As for info and searching, try these:

Of note is that this is a Daytona Shelby and not one of the numbered Shelby Dodge's, which were titled as a Shelby (unlike the Shelby Mustang's :lol:).

Nice. :thumb: Might have asked before, but are/were you on the RTML? In addition to being a factory pilot car mine is one of seven with the option-delete code that year. Only thing it came with extra from the factory was ABS. All the better for weight savings.

Yes,I was on the RTML for a few years, but never posted much.
