Colt Classic: 1968 Mitsubishi Colt 1000F Deluxe Van

July 09, 2017

It turns out F is for Fastback, even if it's not a fastback! What is not in doubt is that this Colt 1000F is a van and it spent its working life in the service of Sanyo driving about in Kitakyushu. We also know the engine is a KE43, which is a 977cc, 4 cylinder OHV engine.

This Colt van was built in 1968. It has a 977cc inline 4 engine.
