1986 Shelby GLHS #053
This is GLHS Omni #053 of 500, which makes it the 53rd GLHS
sold, and the 3rd GLHS sold to the general public. Research on
it shows it to be Invoice #102, which makes it actually the second
86 GLHS built (invoice numbers started with #101). Also, further
research shows that because of when this car was actually built,
and because of certain details, that this car was the actual
vehicle used in the dealership brochures and press releases.
The car was delivered to the original owner with a number of
miles on it, and there are some oddities with the car that seem
to support this. I was working with Shelby Enterprises to get
We restored this vehicle to better than new status.
It had been sitting in a barn in the southwest for the past five
years. When we pulled it out of the barn, we immediately pulled
the interior and all engine bay wiring out. We then took the
rolling body to be straightened and had fresh PPG paint applied.
When we got it back, we put in a new carpet (Auto Custom Carpets),
NOS front seat covers (notice the lack of the 2 Door seatbelt
guide and the holes it would create), many new interior trim
pieces, and recoated anything that was no longer available for
a new appearance.
Exterior wise, every piece of trim that was still
available was replaced with NOS. This means all rub strips, front
door trim, headlight bezels, tail lights, grill, bumper trim,
and even the ground effects are brand new. We also sent the original
Shelby stamped Centurion wheels out to be straightened and refinished.
The result speaks for itself
