Minty Mitsubishi Roffle: 61k Mile '95 Galant GLSi Hatchback - £7 a Ticket - Congratulations garellikatia!

Recommended Posts

With the month of January nearing its end, the time has come to let go of the Galant. Its been an absolutely brilliant car while I had it, but with my move to Edinburgh approaching quickly, and the lack of space to actually store most of my cars anywhere (I'm sure theres nothing to worry about), this one needs to go. I've written plenty about the car before, if you want an extensive amount of photos you can check my general fleet thread here or check my cross European collection thread from December here.

If you can't be bothered, here are the details.

1995 Mitsubishi Galant GLSi Hatchback

1.8 4G93 petrol and a manual

Just 61k miles, I've put around 2000 of those on it myself over the last 3 months, with a trip to Germany and back again resulting in no real complications.

MOT until June

In general, its in incredibly nice condition. As far as I know, it was granny owned and always garaged, with it not doing many miles at all over the last couple of years. It was then used by a family member since around May of last year, until I bought it in October. Its clear that its been well cared for, without any bodges or stupid modifications to be found at all, excluding the painted wheel trims and radio.

MOT history looks great, too. Its generally rust free but apparently did get a patch underneath a few years ago, which still looks solid. The bodywork looks great, with no damage or corrosion visible anywhere. There is however a giffer scrape on one of the corners of the rear bumper, and unfortunately, an H from the Mitsubishi lettering is missing. I've therefore deducted 500 quid of the actual market value from the asking price.

Mechanically it is very solid, too. The front tires show their age and the idle isn't where it should be (members of the Autoshite team have concluded after some collaborative fiddling that it might need a new coolant temp sensor, idle control motor (the one that opens the throttlebody) or something else. Fortunately everything is cheap and all components extremely easy to access so that should hopefully be a quick fix.

All of this is getting way too long so just have some pictures.

I might have to add that this happened on the Autobahn. Probably the fastest it ever went in its life.

And look how practical it is to boot!

I've set the ticket price to 7 quid which should be fair. I've got a strangely high number of people showing interest in this car so I'll just give everyone the chance to acquire it right here. 

Lets go!

First link fixed and ticket list updated. I should add that it also comes with the most important feature you can get on these, thanks to Jim Bell for adding some autoshite authenticity to it!

Looks a good motor that. Look after it and it should run and run. Something a bit different as well. 

I genuinely believe thats exactly what it is. You could keep this car on the road for 2 decades with minimal investment. Its still rock solid, which is the reason I am advertising it here first. It needs to go to someone who will continue to take care of it, not run it into the ground like a 400 quid beater normally would be. Its just too nice for that.

Absolutely no effort to keep a car like that running good. Old Japanese tackle like that runs for an age of the oil is clean. Is it belt or chain? Looks a similar unit to the Honda 2.3 in the Accord/623. Just good quality engineering. It’s hard to think why 25 years later people went for Ford Scorpios over these.

This one is belt driven, oil looks great as well. You know that granny had everything done the garage told her would need doing.😄

Probably a nice easy belt job on that as well cause there’s plenty of space round the job. Not many cars that size with a 1.8 either and hatch, probably only similar car from round that time would have been a Safrane which would have been the 2.0.

Probably being the only person who owned a '95 Galant and '92 Safrane, they are quite similar, however the Galant has a much sportier, nippier feel and much better seating position, while the Safrane was incredibly comfortable and had a few more luxuries (that you could have gotten in the Galant theoretically). I think the 626 hatch (which I like a lot as well) and Mondeo 5-door were the closest rivals.

One random please.

I don't suppose you'd be interested in a swap for a Charade?

done, ticket #41! I'm mildly interested but a lack of space wouldn't allow it, as tiny as it is! I have the 528i lined up for daily duty now.

Go on then. I'll have a random.

Take it to Edinburgh with you so my collection would be slightly easier? :D

#36 for you. You know, my new employer would actually pay for the car to be shipped up there, I don't necessarily want to screw them over before I even started working there though lol.

Three randoms please. 2 in my name, one for barmatt. 

#8, 10 and 47 for you and barmatt

      If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
      So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into? 
      Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...

      This roffle DOES NOT include two new genuine wings. They would be available to purchase by the winner, or I'll sell them separately.

      this is mother gm with her little "redster" on the day I handed over the keys

      many adventures have been had over the past year but it is now time to find a new home for the plucky pug
      basic infos : 126350 miles, mot until October 2020, in the last year it has been serviced, had a new exhaust, battery and a set of winter tyres, it's a fun little thing to chuck about the back roads and, as you can see, is a breeze to park


      (she will kill me for using those photos)
      the waving elf has sadly been removed, it was deemed to be inappropriate for a funeral convoy last week
      the bodywork looks better in the pics than in the flesh, there are a number of scrapes and dings, at some point it's had an accident repair





      but the steelies are painted "Peugeot Rallye White" which more than makes up for it 
      inside is pretty clean, everything works as it should - not that there are many toys, the CD player has an aux in and the windows are electric, the gearnob is a genuine JakeBullet poolball, the parcel shelf is a gm original with one sony and one jbl speaker
      that speedo optimistic, it will not top a ton but will do 70 in second if you push it, 90 can be achieved in third, fourth or fifth - it doesn't seem to matter which 




      there is a spare tyre and toolz and a tottie wee engine in there somewhere


      so who's up for a random or two ? 
      tickets are £12 each or 2 for £20, PayPal preferred, it is taxed (only £20 a year) but not currently insured, location is Chester-le-street, the lucky winner can be collected from Durham or Newcastle station
      who wouldn't want to be this happy ?

      This Citroen Visa was purchased at the weekend by five members of the forum, and is now up for a roffle.
      £10 a ticket
      £18 for two
      £27 for three
      Car will be roffled on the bonus ball as normal. The current owner of the car is Wuvvum, who doesn't have an financial interest in it. No profit will be made, and surplus over the initial investment* (£500) will be passed on to the roffle winner to help with collection costs. Part owners may also buy tickets in the draw. The car has an MOT until 15th September.
      More info here in the collection thread:

      Two other notes:
      - Roffle date will not be set until Wuv has the V5 back in his name
      - Car currently has a water leak which Wuv will be fixing before the new owner can collect.
      Off you go!
