1987 Shelby Dodge Charger GLH-S – Click above for high-res image gallery

When Carroll Shelby, the legendary creator of the Cobra (as if you didn't know), started lending his name and company's tuning capabilities to the front-wheel drive Chrysler products in the 1980s, instant classics were made. Contemporary tests found that the Shelby Dodges were completely up to the task of keeping pace with the best American performance cars of the era, and the relative undesirability of the base cars meant that a rather small number of Shelby Omnis, Chargers and Shadows were sold.

This raises an interesting question: Now that a several decades have passed since Shelby was tuning Pentastars, are those cars now collectible? And if so, just how collectible are we talking? Today's eBay Find of the Day seeks to answer that very question. The example currently up for bid ticks all the right boxes and is therefore a perfect measuring stick. To wit, it has seen just 2,700 miles pass under its 2.2-liter turbocharged engine and it appears to be in pristine condition; it's the top-level GLH-S (meaning it Goes Like Hell, Some more) and it carries all kinds of documentation dating back to 1987, the year of its birth.

So, how much is it worth? We may soon find out. As is often pointed out, a car is worth exactly as much as someone is willing to pay for it. As of the time this was written, this Shelby Charger's bidding stood at $13,800 after 11 bids and the reserve was not yet met. Just under two days left, for what it's, ahem... worth.
