Paint chips and nicks here and there, small scratches, and the nose is chipped up from the 130mph rocks...

The car ran SCCA club and Pro events for 3 years. All of the Shelby-specific parts are there and in good shape.

The installed seats are a set of Shadow ES Sport seats, nice factory "recaro-like" with side bolsters.

Other items of note:

-Radio delete option
-Alpine alarm with proximity detection

Other Items Included:

-The rollcage and a window net. It's a full 6-point SCCA Showroom Stock cage.

-All the factory shop manuals, including the Shelby Service Manual Supplement and the factory Dodge Drivability Supplement, all drilled and bound in a very large binder (this weighs 20 pounds on its own...)

-The original 1987 CSX seats, complete. They are in nice shape, and I just recently had the driver's side seat bottom recovered in factory material (it suffered from the dreaded "CSX seat split" syndrome as they all do...)

-The original numbers-match engine block, a bare cylinder head, a couple of crankshafts and a set of rods. Except for the engine block I do not know the source and/or condition of these parts. These are in Wichita Falls TX

-Some of the factory CSX decals. Before they went NLA I bought some "CSX" and "Intercooled" decals and some of the gray lower body decals, left side mostly. It's not a full set. Plus, I have a NLA roll of 3M Vivid Blue striping tape, which was used to stripe the belt line moldings.

-A Mark Panos-made "SHELBY" windshield decal. The car currently does not have a windshield decal on it.

-The original built sheet, although I found it under the carpet soaking wet, and it's virtually illegible

-Some kind of factory production metal "shield" which was hung on the rear-view to let the workers know it was a Shelby. Found it under the carpet as well...

$No Longer for Sale$

For a time I have been advertising the car for sale. Since then, we've spent a lot of time and money getting it back together with the goal of restoring it to the same way it was for SCCA Showroom Stock or World Challenge competition.

Well, after spending a lot of cash trying to restore the car to almost-new, I'm basically giving up. I have made an agreement to sell the car to the guy that's been working on it all this time. Maybe he can spend his spare time making it like new.

I'll miss the car, as it's a blast to drive. However, it's time (after 12 years) to move on.
