Clippity Clop, Hippity Uppity Coupe: 1970 Colt Galant GTO-MR (& MI, MII)

January 14, 2017

I am drowning in old Mitsus it would appear, as I've got a bunch of zenki GTOs from all over Japan to share with you today. I cover the Mi, the MII, and the MR.

The A53C/A55C/A57C Series GTO was built from Nov 1970 to Nov 1976. This GTO hardtop was built in 1970. It has a 1,597cc inline 4 engine.
