Love that Galant.  

I nearly bought a C-reg one once in the mid 90s; it was the softest, vaguest thing I’d ever driven and I wasn’t ready for the lifestyle change at the time. Would now though.

Those seats are every bit as grandma’s sofa as they look.

Yeah that Galant is utterly mega. Reading up on them and apparently the press of the era didn't much like the engine as the turbo spools up with start up, meaning it's super smokey and loud first thing. 

Perfect WBOD in which case. 

I've checked about a hundred times but I can't find a spare £1300 anywhere.

Perfect spec - 827Si with velour and the early skinny bumpers.  Hot hot hot.

I remember seeing the advert for this back in the summer. It was on for £2.5k. Now at £2.3k. The front bumper looks quite scuffed so I wonder if there's a multitude of sins waiting to be uncovered.:unsure:

I thought there were only two of these left?  In which case here’s the other one for sale.

Off the road for 10 years. It failed the MOT and has been left in the corner of my workshop for the last 5 years.

It will become MOT and Tax exempt from April next year, so just wait till then and drive to all the car shows

Great plan, WGPGW?

It came second to the Camry TD in this group test, the Japanese diesels being more refined than the Audi 1.6 TD.

I didn’t even know Mitsubishi made (or at least offered) a diesel before the 90s other than in Shoguns etc. Now that I’ve seen it, I can’t stop thinking about the fucker, chocolate lime colour scheme and all. I can just imagine giving it three preheat cycles before it rattles into life on a freezing morning. Summat wrong with me.

please someone on here buy it, I can’t wait to see how *great the parts supply is
