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.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
