1986 Shelby GLHS #053
On the interior, we wanted to maintain as close to stock appearance
as possible, but still have all the functionality we wanted.
Since we needed more instrumentation, we used a two gauge A-pillar
pod from FWD Performance, and put in Autometer Ultralite oil
pressure and boost gauges. I also added a NOS cruise control
stalk, Chrysler AM/FM/Cass/CD radio, a cable shifter, and NOS
Shelby horn medallion for kicks. Since we didn't want the casual
observer to be able to tell it indeed is a cable shifter, we
completely disassembled one from a 90 P-body, and rebuilt it
to fit under the stock Omni interior pieces, and used a new GLHS
style Momo shift knob.
If you look very closely at this picture you will see one
small part of the suspension mods made to this GLHS. We added
1 1/8" Quickor front and rear sway bars. This new rear sway
bar can be used in addition to the stock rear sway bar. At the
same time, I added new Koni struts and shocks, LRE -1.25"
Front AutoX springs, Polyurethane front bushings, and an 'AutoX'
style alignment. In the rear, an 87 Shelby Z rear disc brakes
with an 87 Shelby Z master cylinder were added. The results in
this department make for the best handling, most stable L body
we have ever driven.
