    1988 Lancer Shelby

    Its a busy world but wanted to share pictures of my 1988 Lancer Shelby. one of 279 I believe.

    Just found it on kijiji. bought it sight unseen, worked out. Ebrake cable snapped and the front lip broke on the car carrier, otherwise its great everything works.

    Holy cow. That thing is nearly as clean underneath as mine is, and mine came out of AZ. What a great find. The pumper rims leads me to believe that another enthusiast was caring for it before you purchased it?

    Love the H-bodies! I remember seeing a white Lancer Shelby about 20 years ago in the local Kmart parking lot and my brother and I had to stop and drool over it.

    I've had my '87 Shelby Lancer since January of '99, but I gotta say the Lancer Shelbys were the better car, mostly because of incremental model year improvements. And they pulled off the hatch wing so well. Great find.

    Re: 1988 Lancer Shelby

    was that the one in ajax or whitby or there'bout ?

    if so I saw that add .. considered it for a while too

    if it's solid the price was good but the seats , eah , not so much
    - but relatively easy fix

    thought it was listed as an 89 though .. roof spoiler

    Yea its the whitby one. Seats are very crunchy. Ill try some leather care products on it. I dont wanna just swap the seats.

    Im removing the aftermarket sterio tonight. Last owner ran new speaker wire and cut all the factory plugs to suppprt a 25watt per channel amp. Great

    Complete opposite of my 87 Daytona. Passenger side spotless, driver's side gone.

    Agreed - glad to see another car being spared from the grave.

    you can only delay the grave, the rust reaper comes for all.

    looked in the truck last night, more bad news. has a hole. someone fixed it with foil tape, they even painted the tape white, did not work.
    lots of effort for a terrible result.

    I double dare everyone on this site to remove their cars inner wheelwell liners and look around. here are some more pictures of the work ive been doing. https://imgur.com/a/siSSL

    Last owner was a hack or ---- mechanic, Painting rust black layer after layer and leaving every other fastener loose. about 30% of the body fasteners up front were only half spun on. check out the engine mount picture.

    yeah it's o-e

    I have no need to pull the splash shields outta the charger I got in pickering .. nothing to see car has NO rust

    seam in front wheel wells and rust behind strut towers is the very first thing I look for

    already fixed that enough times so this time I went looking for a car that had no rot

    THAT took 28 years of looking at L bodies in toronto as this one is the only one I've seen that was as good as my 85 turismo back in 88 when I got it
