It's taken a month of heavy considering for my girlfriend and I to come to terms with selling off her baby, my first vintage colt. Keeping up with her having this car, her 75 wagon and, her montero is tough on me, so one has to go.
Third Owner Car;
1976 Dodge Colt Sedan, Maroon ext, White velour and wood grain interior.
Bought brand new in Kalamazoo Michigan, taken to Battle Creek Michigan and undercoated, stored indoors in winters and driven in summers.
Currently rolls the odometer at 40,000 miles. Originally this was a 2.0 (4G52) automatic, rear wheel drive. We've swapped in a hard to find narrow block 2.6 liter from a mighty max with around 54,000 miles on it, has the old school non-electric mikuni carb and the newer style electric ignition (no points).
Car has recent:
brakes all around
New truck radiator (bigger)
upgraded external trans cooler
long tube header
open air filter
Autopal H4 headlight conversion
Rota RB 15x8 rear, 15x7 front, Yokohama tires.
This car is equipped with the A904 automatic transmission (same internal as the chrysler 727 trans) and is a NARROW BLOCK transmission, the engine is a 6 bolt as well, this means you can drop a 4G63 into this car without any modifications to the drivetrain.
It's quiet and smooth, it's really a cruiser car as it is now, dependable and comfortable, the interior is 100% complete and in great shape except the drivers seat has deteriorated in the last two years, it will need reupholstered to bring the interior back to new quality, exterior the paint is dry and old but could be brought back with some love, the most important part, the vinyl top is still in great shape without cracks or separating. The car does have spots of rust, nothing that couldn't be easily restored by someone with that skill set, i am not skilled in those ways so I left it alone and just took care of the car.
Car is available in Mesa AZ, pick up only, I would drive this car across country with this strong little 2.6 as the power mill, it's really a pleasure to drive, recently we loaned it to a friend down her for a week so he could get to work while his montero was down for maintenance service, after driving it for a week i had to talk him out of buying it (we've been trying to be good friends to each other and limit our number of toy cars). All the engine and transmission parts can be pulled from an 82-84 Dodge D50/Mighty Max, so drivetrain parts are easy to get, and cheap!
Car is pictured with 1973 bumpers, they are not included, car will come with stock 1976 bumpers.
I will get interior and engine bay pictures soon, it's currently parked in my uncles garage while my garage is being built.
Price is $2700 firm, if you're not willing to pay that, it's ok, we'll keep the car around until someone does.
