    75 Colt Galant Wagon

    Mileage - 143k miles
    4g32 with some pretty bad rod knock
    KM110 4spd combo
    Paint - Bright Red (code 055) faded to Red Orange
    Lowered 2" with chopped front springs, though potentially done correctly, no extra play in front suspension, blocks on rear end (undecided about those or not)
    Stock shifter was cut near the base and 2nd owner (i'll be the 4th) welded a 16" shifter to it lol
    Working AM Radio
    Shaved hatch, license plate relocated to rear bumper which is actually a front bumper I believe.
    tail lights were rewired, so I with my amber tail lenses off the 77 will not be functioning as turn indicators rather than just extra parking lights lol.
    Buick hubcaps on the stock 13s
    Only rust is surface rust where the paint has chipped away in tiny patches, have been sprayed with clearcoat to prevent further rusting for now (temp fix).
    Roof rack!
    Comes with a Surfboard, 2nd owner had a Hawaiian theme going lol.



    that is the smog pump :lol:






    Some goodies that came with it, I'll scan them in later
    Dealership Press Photos from 1975 (H)

    Nope it's matte black, but hey they filled the holes in the hood and trunk at least, before they painted.

    Wasted no time this weekend lol!


    Ironically the left fender and hood are originally blue beneath the red paint. The hood is matte black on top and red underneath, however some paint has chipped to reveal blue underneath that, and the fender shows bits of blue around the bolt holes. I'm thinking it wasn't recent that the hood and fender were replaced but probably back in the 80s-90s, because the faded paint is exactly the same on the rest of the car.



    Installing the 75's 4g32 into friend's Passenger seat of his Lancer lol.


    Colt Party! Lancer>Galant>Galant :lol:


    Things learned in the pulling of the 77's 4G52 yesterday.
    - The 77's baby A904 3spd's torque converter was getting ready to explode (small chips all over the outside of the torque converter and starter plate. Stripped teeth on trans input shaft.
    -Car did not have the right alternator, so they used 20 washers to make the one they had work
    - transmission crossmember, serves better as pry bar or ramp than as structural support. Bolt holes on end were complete rotted that there are still two bolts attached to the car underneath. the transmission mount was really holding the crossmember in place.

    I'd believe it, because you're over in Shelton right? The car came with some dealership press kit stuff, that had the original mailing envelope shows it was for a Shelton Dealership, which leads me to believe the car is originally from over there before it ended up in Poulsbo and now in my hands.
