Hi New memeber looking for production numbers for 87 Chargers

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, I am looking to see what the break down of production Shelby chargers were for 1987.

I have acquired an 87 charger but it doesn't have a sunroof. I read somewhere that ALL 1987 Shelby chargers were produced

with sunroofs. If anyone has any info on production numbers, that would be most help full and appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes all 1987 Shelby Chargers had a sunroof as part of the Shelby package. Years ago there was a Shelby Charger owner on one of the Shelby Dodge forums swearing up & down that he had a Shelby Charger with a sunroof delete and no matter how many times he was informed that was not the case he just argued it was true because thats what the seller told him.

And wouldn't you know it down the road he came back with his tail between his legs saying that he had removed, I believe the headliner, and low and behold there was a different paint color roof on his car complete with amateur welds holding it on.

So in my opinion you have either a regular Charger that perhaps someone transferred Shelby Charger parts over to or you have an owner modified Shelby Charger. So unless you can provide the cars original Monroney label or production build sheet showing no sunroof then we are right back to an owner modified car.

I sure hope this car is not the same modified Charger being sold to someone who did not do their research before the purchase and is the victim of a continuing deception.😎

I too hope its not the same car. I did some digging and although I wasn't able to locate the original discussion, heck we are only talking something that took place around 1999 or 2000, but I did find the following:

Levi N.
1987 GLH-S 0867
Seminole FL

So if the OP's GLHS is #0867 then he will have a surprise.

Sorry Guys it is not a GLHS. what I bought was a production Shelby Charger. I was told it was an 87, the door decal was a bit faded. I had my insurance co run the VIN before I bought it but he never mentioned it was an 86. After the info you guys posted I found a website to run the vin and it is in fact an 86. No sun roof which I'm ok with. the VIN did in fact show it was a true Shelby Charger and not a charger with Shelby parts. I'll keep it I guess :) and have some fun with it. 87 just had lower production numbers, but really they remained unchanged from 86-87. The car hasn't been registered since 1994 and is in pretty good shape, it's all there and un molested.

My error as you never mentioned GLHS in your post.

If you want to post a photo of your cars fender tag I can give you a 100% confirmation if your Shelby Charger left Chrysler with a sunroof or not.
