Mitsubishi Starion for sale £2550 ono.

I have an iconic classic car from the '1980's that needs a good home as moving to a smaller property

It's a 1985 Mitsubishi/Colt Starion 2000 Turbo EX with 97,000 miles from new. This needs recommissioning back to its former glory and is now quite a rare sight to be seen on the roads.
This is the standard bodied car not the later wide-bodied models from 87/88 onwards.

The car is powered by the legendary 4G63 two-liter turbo engine, this has a very strong block having a forged crankshaft and rods as standard and was later used in the Lancer EVO'S from the1990 onwards.

The engine produces 177bhp and power is transmitted through a five-speed gearbox to the rear wheels via a factory-fitted limited-slip differential.
0 - 60 is dispatched in 6.8 sec and the top speed is 140mph.
It will do 35 - 40 mpg with a light foot.

The engines are easily tuned to give more power if required and this one has been fitted with performance exhaust downpipe and a K&N long-life filter. Roughly this gives an extra 18bhp

The grey leather front seats are extremely adjustable for comfort.

The bad bits
It does need bodywork/welding and mechanically works.
Its tries to start but timing is out and missing a thermostat housing.
The front screen needs replacement
The clutch plate has seized to the flywheel and rubbers have gone in the slave cylinder.

All the rear arches were repaired as these are are common area for corrosion. The car was resprayed in the early noughties although it was not the best job in the world as no baking oven was used, but I have the original 2 pack paint for it to do the whole car if you wanted to keep the same colour.

To claw some money back from the restoration, you could sell the plate as reads C69 XPO, its best to phone a friend if you do not know what it says but it will make you smile!
There will be a few boxes of spares that come with it as well.

Will need trailing away as disc brakes have been removed and dry stored
Only taking cash, no bank cards or transfers!


It has a very interesting registration plate of which might make you smile! I believe the sale of this could cover a reasonable percentage for the restoration cost.
