1988 Dodge Shadow CSX-T #445


Vehicle Description

One year after the CSX launch, one thousand 1988 CSX-Ts were built for Thrifty Car Rental. They kept the stock Turbo I engine for durability. The differences from the previous year were 15×6.5 Shelby wheels, and the colors were mainly white with blue and silver trim. (Jon wrote that the CSX-T had white wheel inserts, not black). [High Performance Mopar, the predecessor of Mopar Action, took one out to the streetlight races, and outran V8 and V6 muscle cars with the CSX-T.] *Source Allpar.com
