Hello From NE ohio

Post by Djchunter » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:11 am

Hey guys my name is Dave from NE ohio. I just recently picked up a 77 colt after a long search. I have big plans for this car, but the short of it will be Narrowed front and rear miata subframes, 8.8 IRS, N/A 4g63 with Curt Brown 2g head, Evo intake, FP race manifold with a 68HTA and a ford T5. Hoping this weill be a great street car to get me away from the Evo1 race car. I looking forward to meeting some of you guys and learning from everyone.

Any one have any idea how to source a windshield and front and rear window seals?
Thanks
Dave

Window seals might be available over seas in places like Australia.

Welcome. I’m more a 1st/2nd gen colt guy but for glass I would check Pilkington classic for new and car-part.com for used. Rubber I would check eBay for repops from south east Asia. Just a note everywhere else the car was called a Mitsubishi Lancer so include that in your search for more options.

77 is mostly lancer, but it is a bit wishy washy for the wagons and some coupes of that year still being Galant. Helps if we got a picture though.
