Four Brand New Shelby Models from the 1980s Unearthed on eBay!

What are the odds of four brand new, never before registered, Shelby sports models from the 1980s popping up for sale after laying dormant in some warehouse for more than a quarter of a century?

We’d say pretty thin, even if all four Shelby models are from the brand’s less glamorous involvement with the Chrysler Group in the 1980s. Granted, they’re not the Shelby cars you’d die for, but they’re an interesting and rare find nonetheless.

The ebay seller has two Shelby CSXs from 1987 and 1989, a 1989 Shelby Dakota truck and a 1989 Shelby Lancer.

Offered from 1987 to 1989, the CSX (for Carroll Shelby Experimental) was based on the turbocharged intercooled Dodge Shadow and had a 175hp 2.2-liter force-fed four, reportedly good enough for a 0-60mph run in around 6.8 seconds.

In the case of the Dodge Dakota-based Shelby truck, it was built on the short-wheelbase version and had a 5.2-liter V8 churning out 175hp.

As for the Shelby Lancer, it was based on the Dodge Lancer with power coming from a Shelby-tuned 2.2-liter turbo engine producing 175hp (with less torque than the CSX’s lump) completing the 0-60mph sprint in 7.2 seconds and the quarter mile in the mid-15 seconds.

The ebay seller is asking a cool $120,000 or “best offer” for all four cars.
