    1982 Colt Galant 1600 GL (aka Galant Sigma)

    This has been posted up here sometime ago, but I've now taken over ownership of it.

    As it is now.....


    Condition is very good, but the car is filthy and in need of a good polish, which I'll sort out. The Nurburgring sticker isn't a joke, it really has been there!


    Went over as part of a magazine feature, hence the sticker!


    The back has a dent in it, apart from that and a few minor rust blemishes, the bodywork is very impressive for a car of this age. The panels and sills are largely perfect!


    Polished up a bit of the roof as a test.


    Clocks are pretty uninspiring, I would really like a rev counter!


    Radio is cool, but I'd very much like the tape deck that goes below it on better-spec models. Note the 4-speed gearbox!

    Plans

    Besides servicing it and tidying up the rust before it gets any worse, there are more interesting things planned.


    I arranged to buy these wheels, they're 13 inch Bilbo Racing.


    Intend to fit those as per above and then knock the suspension down considerably for that "small wide wheels" look that is so popular in Japan. Will want lower profile tyres than the fat stock ones shown, but I couldn't be bothered editing it.

    Then I guess I will do things as I go along.....

    By the way, are there any Australian members on here who would be willing to get hold of Sigma parts cheaply? I understand they are very common over there.

    I'd very much like a set of dashboard clocks with a rev counter in (so I can gut it and use the rev counter in my own)!

    Would also like the radio setup where it has a tape deck below instead of just the LW/MW radio on its own, like so:

    Yes they're very common down under ...

    Have you joined one of the Aussie Sigma forums? I'm assuming they exist.

    One of my neighbours has a big http://www.sigma-galant.com/ sticker on the back of their car, so you could try that site too, hehe.

    Can't wait to see how it turns out mate!

    Good work van, have stuck a wanted post on there for a tape deck. I'm not particularly bothered about sounds and the radio is a weird built-in one making fitting a standard head unit a pain. Given that I'd only put a tape deck in anyway, I might as well just get the standard one.

    I'd also love a set of seats from a better model, but the postage would kill me! Hmm, those Bride Brix seats are getting cheaper nowadays.....

    What about a new radio in the glove box, maybe with a remote?

    Did that on one of my 510s to keep thieves at bay.

    Looking very sharp on in the photoshop pic, Hirst. Early Mitsu sedans are hugely unappreciated in the US. I love the Cordia, but seem to be the only one. Can't wait to see your progress.

    You think that's bad, I'd love a Tredia! In the spec that Gene Wilder had in "Woman In Red".



    With a set of gold Reverse Mesh wheels or something..... mmm.....

    And now back to the Galant, yesterday I drove across to Grimsby to get the aforementioned Bilbo wheels.

    Test fit:







    Yeah yeah, I know I need the rot sorting, but the car isn't even home yet! It'll get done.
