1984 Mitsubishi Colt RC 1.6 litre from Australia and New Zealand
Great car Vince colt will live forever
Well the door has no seals at all.
Wheel stud broke
Engine leaks oil
Rear brakes are shuddering - hand brakes.
Revs high in gears because of burnouts and hand brake turns.
The Colt is a beast. It doesn't matter what you do to the car, it never breaks. I've taken it 4wding over massive jumps through parks and yet it still runs fine and starts first go. Bought the car for 400$, and one year later it still runs fine.
One thing, it will struggle to go over 130 kmh, 145 kmh is pretty much max speed. 1st gear will pull 50km max, second 110km, and third 145 max.
The car is great on fuel when not driven very hard.
The hand brake is amazing - you can do great power slides.
Note the car won't do a burnout standstill unless it has a lot of oil on the road.
A lot of jumps over 2 metres high may break the CV joints.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You should be able to find one on the side of most major Australian highways without rego plates or windows, wheels etc, that you could have for free, like this one will be soon enough.

Dude colts are the best car, I have a 1984 RC Colt 45 and man it rules, my colt has only done 66,000k's and it's the best car I have ever owned.
