They're called calipers not calibers. Need more info. Cars have brakes on the front AND the rear. Is this for the front or rear? The fronts were more than likely std. 10.25" vented front disks, which came standard on many FWD Mopars. I'm guessing probably 54mm pistons in the front. In the rear, most Lancers and other FWD Chryslers did not come with rear disk brakes, only the performance models (esp. in 1987). Your Shelby Lancer should have came with Kelsey-Hayes 10.6" solid rear disk rotors. Quite a few of the Shelby cars had unusual rear disk calipers because they were sort of ahead of the game as far as Chrysler production models in years to come. You can probably do a search on this forum on how people made other later model calipers fit. Some rear calipers for Shelby models are extremely hard to locate.
BTW Chrysler for whatever reason used multiple suppliers for brakes. ATE and Kelsey-Hayes, IIRC, in 1988. The ATE caliper always had 2 mounting pins, the K-H calipers up front could have 1 or 2 mounting pins depending on the style caliper that is on your vehicle. Probably best to figure out what style brakes you have on your car before purchasing anything. If nothing else, pop off the wheels and take pictures and post up and we can try to identify them for you. Back side of rears especially would be helpful.
Good luck,

Sorry Misspelled calipers (front). Thanks for the detailed response.
