Hopefully
Ok so thanks to some peer pressure, and some bribery from our very own Bigfoot I ceased umming and ahhhhing about buying the Galant sell that had been calling my name from Zebra. She is a 1972(woohoo vintage reg) Mitsubishi Galant 16L... or Dodge Colt in the US... or Dodge Cricket in Canada (not to be confused with the US Dodge Cricket... which is actually an avenger lol... fucking "muricans! Shell is in very good nick with minimal bog or rust immediately obvious and the majority of the important bits there or there abouts including all the glass, dash, interior trim bits etc so the complicated to replace stuff seems to be there which is handy. Need to track down Engine/Box... i'm gonna go with the easy option of 4g63 non turbs which I know goes awesome in this weight body (had same in my second LB Lancer and it was a hoot) Steering column could be a little trick but need one of those too. Bigfoot has some spares that he has said i can make use of so struts/springs/dif etc so I can get her rolling which is fucking ace! need to figure out wheels and paint at some point soonish. But my mum had an awesome orange one on THE BEST WHEELS IN THE WORLD steve... aka turbos lol... and my grandmother had a rad silver one. Leaning toward a real rich burnt orange at this stage but it is early days... don't even pick it up till saturday haha. Anyway, pics As it sits right now: And how they are supposed to look haha: Sleek! Dodge! Low! factory spec! Edit: further good news is that reg is on hold and shit so once I slap it back together I can just get wof and roll, jeah!
