I'm bad...I bought a Dodge!

Recommended Posts

attachment.php?attachmentid=5946&stc=1&d=1227142996

 

I simply could not resist and bought a 79 Dodge Colt. Not a speck of rust and well cared for by the original owner until 2005. Then someone beat it a bit, but not to bad. I had one before and it was a pretty niffty car. 1.6, 107K , stick 8 speed tranny. I still love my Subys, but its fun to have a new project. Let the hunt begin for those parts and things. This got near 50mpg on the highway!

 

Nighttime pic, so it's not as sharp as it should be.

 

Anyone know much about these cars? Parts????????

I probally would find a way to jam the thing in "power" fulltime...

 

I have a 74 colt station wagon.I almost regret turning it into a demolition derby car,but it had no title and a few other issues...

Nah..... the car is complete. There are the things that I want perfect and or better than what's there. Example, the grill has a crack and one of the mudflaps is torn off.

 

Found a spare engine with 10K on it! It's really a fun little car!

It has to be a 79-82 for some of the items. The 4 door would have been 84 or 84. These would work from that.

 

  • lug wrench/jack
  • sunroof rubber or whole sunroof
  • Rear view mirror
  • Rear emblem "Imported for Dodge" "Colt"
  • Clips off of aircleaner. The things that hold the lid on. They twist off with pliers. Or the whole aircleaner assembly.
  • 4 Speed shifter knob and the other ragnge selector knob.
  • Radio speaker (Right front)

If you can take some pics of it...that would be great!

 

Thanks, Todd
