1989 Dodge Daytona Shelby 2.2L Turbo II from North America
A performance car that is easy to live with and is a bargain
Head gasket replaced around 105,000 miles.
Speakers going bad.
Power door locks don't always work.
Driver's side power window is slow going up in cold weather.
Replaced clutch around 99,000 miles I think.
Replaced pick-up coil around 101,000 miles.
Paint is faded in some spots.
Aside from some little naggling things, it has been very reliable. It's my daily driver.
Still a very solid car after all the miles put on it. Very few rattles.
T-tops are great. Very little rattling and no water leaks yet. A great surprise. I can't wait for summer. I love the T-tops. One of the best features of the car.
The performance is good, very good at times, especially when I need the power in traffic.
The car is a blast to drive.
Gets pretty good gas mileage for a sporty car, if you can resist the turbo.
The seats are fine and pretty comfortable, even though you sit low.
The car has kept up very well for being an older model. A testament to Chrysler Corporation's engineering.
I hope to have it repainted this year and show it at some car shows. Nothing major, just the colors it came with from the plant.
I love this car; I hope to keep it forever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi my name is Jared and I have an 1987 Dodge Daytona Shelby Z. I am having trouble trying to find parts for the interior. I really want to restore the car. The only thing wrong with it right now is the transmission, but it's being rebuilt. Please if you know of any remanufacturer for this car please reply.
