        i don't think there was a harder fall from grace for a model. the Mustang II didn't even come close to shitting on the mustang legacy as hard as this did the challenger. not even the Mach E.

          Don’t think of it as a muscle car Challenger, see it as a glorious Mitsubishi and then you’ll understand. It’s a fun Jap 4 banger with delicious styling when compared to what we have today.

          >Mustang II
          people give it way too much shit. The Mustang had become massive and bloated by 1973, and they couldn't get away with selling that anymore during the oil crisis. The Mustang II got downsized at the exact right time, and the effort Ford put into it still pays off today. You know how many boomers who shit on it have Mustang II suspensions in their "restomod" muscle cars?

            What's the difference between the 73 and 72?

            There isn't any, except the "performance" engines are just more and more choked up. It's still just as pigfat.

            That 1973 was the last year of the first generation Mustang?

            But if there was no change, then you can say the same thing by saying they were massive and bloated by 71 too.

    One of these rebadged Mitsu’s would be fun to drive! I’m pretty sure the 2.6l is the actual hemispherical heads version. You can’t find any though for sale or it’s rusted into oblivion.

      I read an article today that there's just five of these left on UK roads (marketed as a Colt rather than a Mitsubishi).

    Hot take but it looks close enough to an original 1970 that I can see how Dodge got away with it as an oil crisis car.

      >Dodge got away with it
      Like hell they did. Everybody collectively rolled their eyes at the husk of Chrysler trying to pass that off as a Challenger. The Sapporo didn't get grief for trying to cash in on a legacy it was not a part of, it just got wtf reactions to an unconventional name. That said, I doubt the name of either had much to do with the poor sales. At the time the stench of death was so strong at Chrysler they just about couldn't give the cars away as everybody figured there wouldn't be any way to get the expected warranty work done.

    The Astron is by far the best engine for any classic mitsubishi, be it sigma, scorpion or even the classic lancers.

      I have an Astron in my 85 Voyager, I heard they eat head gaskets for lunch and were known for being unreliable, especially when paired with the Mikuni carb, which I have. How fricked am I?

        Well maybe they changed over the years but the EFI one in my Magna was rock solid, except for the ratchet on the timing chain tensioner wearing out and allowing the chain to slack and rattle on startup before oil pressure builds.

        It seems it's really known as a Mikuni-Solex, and you're fricked.

            Don't ya love it when people give useless information? Check forums for carb swap info. Replacing 1980s carbs is easy. I used rebuild "Holley-Weber" style 2bbs on my VW Scirocco and two Dodge D-50s. Adapters are easy to buy or make. This is not the place to study that.

            Just bought a weber carb with adapter, apparently that's the best way to go on the Voyagers since the Solex is the biggest weak point and evidently one of the worst carbs ever made. Will be fun to resurrect this lad after being abandoned for 25 years. It runs and drives, but holy shit that carb is AIDS.

    Still better than the eventual EV abomination they'll slap the Challenger name on next.

    also they sold a luxury version as a Plymouth.

      the EV abomination at least lives up to the muscle car tradition by actually being fast, and the EV challenger will actually look like a challenger. the mitsubishi was just embarrassing for the nameplate all around having nothing to do with it in any way. the EV challenger is going to live up to the challenger name in every way other than exhaust note.

      What's your favourite Dodge Challenger? The 1.6 inline 4 or the 2.6 inline four?

      Back in the day in oz, people used to put the 186 or 202 holden straight sixes in these.
      They were cheap and readily available.

    Honestly it does look like Challenger but 80s style. Dodge meets Delorean.
