This 1986 Dodge Omni Shelby GLH-S is #255 of 500 examples produced for the model year. It was purchased new by the seller in Georgia in July 1986 and brought to California in 1988. The car is powered by a turbocharged 2.2-liter inline-four paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and equipped with 15″ alloy wheels, front disc brakes, and manually adjustable Koni shocks well as air conditioning, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and high-back front sport seats. Modifications include a Shelby Performance Stage II engine control unit, a Mitsubishi 1G blow-off valve, a Grant GT steering wheel, a pillar-mounted VDO boost gauge, and a chromoly transaxle thrust plate. This Omni GLH-S is now offered with manufacturer’s literature, a window sticker, 1986 sales documentation, a replacement front air dam, removed parts, service records, miscellaneous spares, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The hatchback body is finished in black and features a front air dam, fog lights with Bosch Pilot covers, side skirts, and Shelby GLH-S exterior graphics as well as a body-color grille, bumpers, headlight bezels, mirror caps, and window surrounds. The seller reports that a dent in the top of the right-front fender has been repaired and refinished, while dings are noted on the hood, driver’s door, and wheel arches. Pitting is shown on the bumpers, and window-trim paint loss is visible on the left-rear door. Damage to the front air dam was reportedly repaired with fiberglass and epoxy resin in 1992, and a replacement air dam is included in the sale.
Shelby Centurion 15″ alloy wheels wear 205/50 Falken Azenis tires. The Shelby heavy-duty brake system utilizes front disc brakes and rear drums, while the suspension features manually adjustable Koni dampers that were replaced under warranty in 1994.
The high-back front sport seats are trimmed in gray cloth and vinyl contrasted by a dark gray dashboard and center stack. Air conditioning, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a cargo cover, and a rear-window defroster are additional features. A VDO boost gauge is mounted on the driver’s A-pillar, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo is installed in place of the factory AM/FM unit, which is included in the sale. The headliner is loose above the rear seats, patches of dark discoloration are noted on the carpets, the shift boot is torn, and split upholstery on the driver’s seat is shown in photos.
A plaque on the dashboard indicates the car is #255 in the production run, which was limited to 500 vehicles.
The Grant GT steering wheel frames an 85-mph speedometer with an overlay reading to 135-mph as well as a tachometer and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, voltage, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 97k miles. The removed steering wheel is included in the sale.
The turbocharged 2.2-liter inline-four was modified by Shelby Automobiles with an air-to-air intercooler, larger fuel injectors, a Shelby-designed intake manifold, and a revised engine control unit, which was replaced by the seller with a Shelby Performance Stage II unit in 1990. A Mitsubishi blow-off valve is also installed, and oil seepage is noted by the seller. The removed engine control unit will accompany the car along with the removed hood vent cover plate.
Power is supplied to the front wheels by a five-speed manual transaxle. A chromium-molybdenum transaxle thrust plate was installed in 1990.
The window sticker lists factory equipment and a total price of $11,620.
The Carfax report indicates no accidents or other damage and lists history in North Carolina and California since new.
