Dodge offered the Omni/Horizon based Charger fastback coupe in a Dodge Shelby Charger package that had increased compression and a sportier suspension, but it was mostly a tape and trim deal, and those cars came out of Chrysler factories. The Charger went out of production and legend has it that Carroll Shelby made a deal to buy the last 1,000 Chargers. How true or not that legend is, the Shelby factory did finish assembly on 1,000 1987 Shelby Charger GLHS models (no Dodge badging), which replaced the Omni based ’86 models. Since the Omni and Charger were mechanically identical, all the bits on the 1986 GLHS pretty much bolted up to the Charger. The Charger had a sportier looking body but was actually heavier than the Omni so performance for he ’87 GLHS is a tick off compared to the ’86 models.
