Four “new” Shelby Dodges for sale

by Bill Cawthon on

A regular Allpar reader has put four brand-new, never registered Shelby Dodges up for auction at the Auctions America auction in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 27-29, 2015.

The group includes a black 1987 Shelby CSX coupe with 45 miles on the odometer, a red 1987 Shelby Lancer sedan with 20 miles, a red 1989 CSX coupe with 25 miles, and a 1989 Shelby Dakota pickup with 22 miles on the clock. Each one is No. 6 in its limited and numbered edition. The dealership had an agreement to get the first one one of each edition.


All four vehicles are still under the original Shelby MSOs (Manufacturer Statement of Origin) and have never been titled. All were purchased from original dealer and kept in temperature-controlled dry storage from the date of purchase.


The vehicles still look and smell just as they did in the dealership. They have have all the dealer markings, including the window sticker, and the protective plastic on seats and steering wheels.


Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
