Shelby had a good working relationship with Iacoca and thats why Chrysler asked him to add power to the Charger, Omni and others to boost Chryslers image coming out of backruptcy.

I've always loved the Mustang II's. I had a 2.3 that would walk all over the Shelby Chryslers. Fun little cars when done right.

They were built like tanks. Kept breaking the main leaf on the rear spring from the torque though, till I had a custom set built with an extra leaf that wrapped the main.
