I recently picked up a 1989 Dodge Dakota Shelby. I was in the market for a truck as a daily driver to keep the miles off my 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T. A member of my car club had this truck for sale on his lot. It is in pretty good shape with 150,000 miles on it. The interior is pretty good with a few cracks in the dash. The previous owner put a cap on it but the original placard is underneath. It appears to be #165. The engine runs great it has been modified with headers with duel exhaust and flowmasters. The transmission shifts well with pretty sporty shifts both up and down. A few things are missing to include the light bar, intake snorkel hose (right side), hood stripe, and one centercap. My question is this a collectors vehicle? Did I bite myself in the a$ by getting another vehicle I shouldn't drive? Whats it worth? Thanks

Yes the Shelby Dakota is a collector vehicle in as much as any Shelby Dodge is a collector vehicle. At 150k miles drive that thing til the wheels fall off. Unfortunately with that amount of mileage it has a street value of only a grand or two.

 

There is no factory "snorkel hose" for the drivers side of the air cleaner housing. Only the passenger side snorkel has a tube going to the front grille.

 

It does look pretty nice for being 21 years old with 150k miles.
