From 1971 through 1994 you could go to a Dodge dealer and purchase a brand new subcompact Japanese car in sedan/coupe/wagon/hatchback form. It was called the Colt and was a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi Galant/Lancer and later the Mirage, but today’s example comes from a time when the impending fuel crisis of the early 70s was making drivers look for something smaller than the typical huge V8 offered by the domestic brands. In the back of that Dodge showroom you could find something called the Colt that was powered by a 1.6 or 2.0 liter 4-banger and drive home without refilling twice on the way. Find this 1974 Dodge Colt Wagon offered for $8,500 in Mountain View, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
