    New here, and i just picked up a '77 colt *PICS ADDED 3/8*

    Hi i just picked up a 77 colt custom coupe for $1,000. It is in fairly nice shape, 135,000 on the chassis, 35k on a rebuilt engine, 4 speed. It has a few surface rust spots.but besides that its.clean.

    I do have the original dealer sticker, owners manual, brochure for the 77 colt, and all maintenance records for it. All in all it seems like a good deal for $1,000.

    i dont really know anything about these cars, i can't seem to find much info. Any steps in the right direction as far as parts go would also be appreciated. I'll get some pics soon.

    nothing really for aftermarket, anything that was available is impossible to find. Replacement parts, try ebay or rock auto. Congrats on the new car, sounds like a good deal.

    Yeah its the yellow one off cl in lacey lol. I'm gonna go snap some pics later today at the airport.

    Btw, what lug pattern is the colt? Looking for some rims and I wanna make sure I'm getting the right ones. The guy I bought it from said he thought it.was 4x100.

    4x114.3, we don't run that wimpy 4x100 stuff :lol:. Remember you will need a offset that caters to RWD (+40 and above is not going to fit without spacers)

    Center caps if in good shape, there tends to be yes.
