    Wow, that's in fantastic shape. You shouldn't have any problems selling it, I'm sure there are plenty of UK JNCers that'd love to own a clean hardtop Galant.

    Actually, I've got a couple questions for the UK Mitsu guys: I see this car has an automatic, is it the same A904 Torqueflite that Chrysler installed in Mitsubishis imported to the US?
    Also, I see the engine bay is painted black. Is this unique to UK Mitsus? I'm pretty sure the engine bays are painted body color in most parts of the world.

    You're not kidding!! I wish my hardtop was as well preserved!! One in a million find, methinks!

    Ummm... Not sure. My workshop manual only lists the manual transmissions; KM110 (1.6) and KM132 (2.0). The Haynes manual says that there's two choices of Automatic. One is a TorqueFlite, but it doesn't state the model. The other is a BorgWarner - Again, model unspecified.

    The only details I can offer are the ratios:

    Torqueflite:
    1st - 2.45:1
    2nd - 1.45:1
    3rd - 1.0:1
    Reverse 2.2:1

    As standard - Yes they were body coloured in the UK. I imagine this one's black because of the aftermarket rustproofing it's had. If only they'd all been rustproofed to this level!
