KIDNEY, ANYONE? 1980 Plymouth Arrow Sport Truck with less than 19k miles

1980 Plymouth Arrow Sport Truck 02

It’s a miracle! A 1980 Plymouth Arrow Sport Truck has appeared on Craiglist in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This rare captive import version of a Mitsubishi Forte pickup has color-matched wheels, the most 1970s stripe package you can imagine, and just 18,854 miles on the clock.

Mitsubishi pickups are already far rarer than their counterparts, the Datsun 620 and Toyota Hilux. Add to that one of the snazzy decals that came exclusive to the Sport Truck package — a work of graphic design art that looks just as fitting on Porsche 911 — and you have a truly rare find.

Tipster Brad D. says “comparisons [to the 620 and Hilux] at the time were all pretty favorable, and owning one now, the parts are easy as they are shared right across the Mitsu/Dodge captive import line… Those zebra stripe front seats are something I think I need in my life!” We couldn’t agree more. Find this truck on craigslist, then find it a good home.

    Nice truck! It’s what a truck should be; simple and trucky, and about the perfect size for the non-commercial owner. The stainless visors are cool too; iffy on finding them now.

    Friends of mine had an ’87 Dodge Ram50. It was as reliable as sunrise and had only minimal rust – on the tailgate and bumper, where it’d been hit. Traded it when the first kid was born, and none of the American cars or minivans they had since were as reliable. Post-split, they’re each driving J-tin again.

    Wish they make trucks like this again.

    This one is worth a kidney, me thinks.
    (This colour is rare too, I’ve only seen it once here in the Toronto area).

      No way, the black crap that is covering everything is a Rusty Jones or Ziebart like product. Every import from the Northeast is covered in that crap. Buyers here had been well aware of the lack of rust prevention on Japanese cars and those products probably helped convince many a wary rust belt buyer to try an imported car for a change.
