Low Mile Galant: 1983 Plymouth Sapporo

Before I get too far into this next car I want to point out that it is monstrously overpriced, even if it only has 13,500 miles on the odometer. Despite the high price tag, it is an interesting example of the Chrysler corporation’s obsession with badge engineering. The Sapporo was a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi Galant Lambda and exported in small quantities to the US Market to compete with base model Mustangs, Celicas & Camaros. Mitsubishi’s pony car didn’t last past the 1983 model year and was replaced by the DSM (diamond star motors) front-drive based coupes. Find this 1983 Plymouth Sapporo offered for $21,900 in Shaker Heights, OH via craigslist.
