Postby gdgalantlover » Mon Nov 21, 2016 8:40 pm

Well, if you look at my old thread "gdgalantlover's 1974 Mitsubishi Colt Galant 16L A53", this is the revival of it
Firstly i'd like to mention that from some reasearch i found it is an 1971 A53 Galant. And its now a 4G32 and 5 speed manual car!

So, between September last year and August this year, it was mostly driven a few things changed. But in early August, dad killed it. ran the motor out of coolant and baked itself. So of course i sourced a 4G32B for it. plan was just to throw it in and leave it, but as time evolves things can change. i soon sold my RC Colt to fund a KM132 Jap 5-speed for it from blownpajero and a manual pedal box and clutch cable from Ben T. once i got the 32B, i found it was a dud. never the less i scored a rusty GC sedan that had a running but tired motor. i put that in with a 32/36 DGV weber and the 5 speed. sure enough it went ok despite a bottom end knock. Pretty stoked that i done most of the conversion myself on a low budget and im only 17! Currently im waiting to put a good 4G32 in it and get it mint without the Weber as i cant really justify a linkage setup for it. Anyways the new motor came out of Frogeye Austin Healey Sprite. It was a rough install but they kept the engine good!

Anyways, pics!
