Cool Kei Car: 1965 Mitsubishi Minica Deluxe

Here’s another one in the Scotty G series of why-do-some-tall-people-like-tiny-cars corner of my cubicle here at Barn Finds. This tiny tot is a 1965 Mitsubishi Minica Deluxe and it’s located in Torrance, California. The seller has it listed here… more»

7,317 Mile Econobox: 1993 Plymouth Colt

When the badge-engineered Colt first appeared on U.S. soil, it was actually a compelling captive import, offering rear-wheel drive and decent looks, combined with wagon variants and later “Silent Shaft” engine technology. As the years wore on, the Colt… more»

Montgomery Ward: 1959 Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon

We often think of captive imports as being car-related, but this 1959 Mitsubishi Silver Pigeon was sold as a Riverside under the Montgomery Ward juggernaut, back when there was a pre-Amazon-bricks-and-mortar juggernaut store. This nice example of a rare… more»

Pocket Rocket Project: 1985 Dodge Colt GTS Turbo

Pocket Rocket is a term that almost seems to have been invented for this 1985 Dodge Colt GTS Turbo. Or, pocket rocket project maybe, although that doesn’t roll off of the tongue quite as well. This little project pocket… more»

Not a VR4: 1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT

Any time we see a dusty car in a garage is cause for excitement, but sometimes it kicks up a notch when we suspect the car in question is a limited production 90s supercar. Well, cool your jets, because… more»

Rare Original Colt: 1975 Dodge Colt

The fascination with horse names and/or horse-related terms with automakers is a headscratcher, at least it is for me. I get it, horsepower, and cars are a replacement personal “vehicle” that replaced the horse. Ok, maybe it isn’t such… more»

Jeff in the Junkyard: Eastern Shore Finds

As some of our long-time readers know, I used to spend a fair amount of time stomping around junkyards on the weekends. Well, having a child greatly limits your free time (at least initially, until they can join you),… more»

Rare Captive Import: 1976 Dodge Colt

Among the legions of captive imports we usually write about, I can’t recall seeing a Dodge Colt wagon anytime recently. Based on the Mitsubishi Galant, which lived on in many forms under the Mopar flag, this example is a… more»

Stellar Deal: 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Is this astronomy inspired car a stellar deal? You can decide. This red 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse for sale in Hazlet, New Jersey has no buy-it-now and no reserve with 68,985 miles. The listing party suggests contacting and making an… more»

Must Love Plaid: 1978 Dodge Challenger

As we know by now, the captive import known as the Dodge Challenger was a spectacular sales failure here in the U.S. Despite being fairly clever from a business standpoint – replacing a hole in the lineup with a… more»

4×4 Diesel 5-Speed: 1992 Mitsubishi Delica Vantech

This camper is 26-years old but it’s still much newer than what we normally like to show here. It was so unusual and so nice, and it checked so many boxes that it was hard to pass up. This… more»

2,200 Original Miles: 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

2,200 original miles! Wow. When it comes to emerging classics, you’d be a fool not to keep a close eye on Japanese sports cars, both old and new. And I mean real┬ásports cars, not that pain-in-the-rear Subaru XT6 I… more»

Survivor SPX: 1988 Mitsubishi Mighty Max 4WD

This 4WD Mitsubishi Mighty Max 4×4 could either be serendipitous or a stark reminder to wait for what you want. See, a few days ago, I went running down a new street in my neighborhood and found a 2WD… more»

Never Seen One: 1960 Mitsubishi Go Pickup

The range of Japanese oddballs that did duty as commercial and/or light utility vehicles never ceases to amaze me, as you wouldn’t think a vehicle with just three wheels was able to perform cargo ferrying duties. Well, this 1960… more»

Import Fighter: 1978 Dodge Challenger

I’ve always dug these “captive import” Dodge Challengers, and was sorely tempted by one in the Georgia stash I wrote about last week as a Barn Finds Exclusive. This Challenger is in slightly better condition (ha!) as a running,… more»

Personal Junkyard: Classics for Sale in South Carolina

A seller on craigslist claims to have his own personal junkyard full of classics ready for new homes. The collection seems extensive, with a heavy emphasis on Plymouth Barracudas and other Mopar products. Still, it seems there’s something here… more»
