Re: Official Shadow/Sundance/CSX Thread!
Here is my Junk.
87 CSX # X11 Prototype.
Build sheet says " UK For Shelby Shadow Pilot Build " and was pulled out of sequence at the Chrysler plant.
In 1987Chrysler / Shelby pulled two pilot cars from sequence,and sent them to Lotus England for the 16 valve prototype motor.At the same time period 1987-1989.... the brakes,exhaust,electronics and much more were all upgraded using the latest chrysler technolgy.
The car also features a cool and unique hook-up for a DRB over the dash programable computer,and adjustable boost control ( very rare for those days ).The SBEC computer is a rare factory socketed chip design that holds two programs by un-pluging a external wire.
The 16 valve head on this car has a very early casting number,and was told that some of the internal parts are different from the RT motors.Although,still looking for more info on that?
In 1990,X11 came back to Shelby in California....and was later sold in his historic garage sale in 1994.
Any input or early pictures about this car?
