    My 1979 Lancer GL 1400.

    Hi.

    My name is Thomas, and i`m from Norway.

    This summer i bought an 79`Lancer GL 1400, one owner car!.

    I got a tip of a friend of mine, he knew of this Lancer that was going to get scrapped.
    So i went too take a look, and bought it right away.
    The car was way to good to get scrapped, so i had to save it.

    It was a lucky find, the previous owner was a 90 year old lady.
    She bought the car new in 79` at the local Mitsubishi dealer.

    The car has only 109000Km on the clock, latest service was back in 2000 at 90000km.
    I payed just a bit more than the scrap price, it had brand new winter tires and four nice ALLY CAT alu-rims with all the center hubs still there... and a full tank of petrol! .



    The rims:





    Interior:



    Engine:



    Service book:



    Last service 93000km, year 2000.



    This has to be one of the first Lancers ever sold in Norway,
    the VIN number seems to be an early one: A172A6200313

    Do any body know what these number means?.

    I`v been thinking about swapping the engine to a 1600 or 1800 and
    a five-speed gearbox.
    So i was wondering about my options?, what engine and gearbox can i use?.

    wow, in norway! that's sooo cool. I was there once (in Haugesund) and saw that they actually have classic car clubs over there, I saw corvette's and malibu's and stuff cruising by it was insane!

    Yes there are a lot of classic Amcar`s here, i`v had three Chevy`s my self.
    And this is not the first Lancer i owned, back in 2003 i had one just like this.

    I had a lot of fun with it, but it ended upside down in a ditch.
    Here is a picture of it on a frozen lake:



    Towing a small sled on the ice, we had fun!:



    And i`v owned a few other Japanese classics:

    79`Mazda 626 1.6:



    Mazda 929 wagon:



    Suzuki Sj510 1.3



    And here is my daily driver, the trusty Daihatsu Rocky2.0.
    It is very nice both in winter and summer, but it`s thirsty!.
